Someone rightly said: ‘Humour is mankind’s greatest blessing’.
After reading this book I could pretty much agree with this quote.
Today I am presenting my review on this humorous, witty book “Mrs. Basu’s uncensored feminism” by @chirasreebose_author . Luckily, I could read both her books and I must accept the fact that Chirasree is an amazing storyteller. She never misses to excel in her writing skills.
Talking about the plot of this book, after a very long time I got to read such a humorous, witty and sarcastic story which made me giggle throughout the book. It basically pens down the story of Mrs. Arpita Basu, the newly wedded only daughter-in-law of Basu family who resides in her in-law’s house for nearly six months now but still confused with her new life and family. Now I won’t give any spoiler as I want the readers to read this amazing plot by themselves.

Furthermore, the storyline portrays a typical Indian family with lots and lots of drama where familism stands at a higher esteem than the values of the individual family member. Through her book, the author has subtly displayed various sensitive issues of our society namely patriarchy, superstitions, sexuality and PHA-MI-NI-JAM( Feminism).
The cover and the title of the book are definitely alluring.
The characters were hilarious. It is worth mentioning that all the characters were well developed throughout the plot, especially Malti, who always stood for her rights. I also loved the way the family members were introduced to the readers.
The language was lucid and the narration was enthralling that can keep the readers glued to the book till the end. I could actually feel the plot playing in front of me.
If you are looking for some sensitive yet humorous read, then I would recommend this book.
My rating: 4.5/5.
