Review# 9: I do Do i?? Ruchita Misra

Kasturi Shukla is all set to marry the man of her dreams. Time to stop doing silly things and start living happily ever after, right? Well, then maybe someone should tell Kasturi that. This irrepressibly irreverent and not - quite - beaming bride - to - be fumbles through a messy engagement and, in a moment of indecision, steps across a line that she should never have been near. To make things worse, her best friends are now nauseatingly mushy star - crossed lovers, her future mother - in - law thinks the kitchen - phobic Kasturi is a fabulous cook, her colleague Padma hates her for no reason, her boss wants medical intervention for her imaginary deafness and her mother has become a cyber - celebrity. This was not the way things were meant to go. Smart, hilarious and utterly unpredictable, I Do! Do I? will have you at the edge of your seat - unless you've already fallen off it laughing.

My Take:

Ok she’s done good justice to the book. Again all the characters are well etched and we would all relate to the story at some point. Pre marriage Jitters and confusion of whether marrying the right person is something all girls and guys of today would relate to. I love the way the topic is handled with sensitivity and humor. For once, you won’t hate Kasturi, even if she’s the one breaking hearts. I loved her moms cyber queen track which shocks Kasturi. So does her imaginary deafness which her boss sympathizes with.
Overall a good breezy read to the prequel. The story continues from where it is left from and is woven around beautifully around all the characters. Thanks Ruchita for this really makes a humorous read on a boring day, when your chips are down.

I would rate the book 4/5..A recommended read..
