Read book reviews from other readers
I picked up this book on one of those depressing nights. The book is a quick read. After completing it in about one and a half hour, I remember myself smiling and laughing as to how foolish I was. Yes, this book inspires you and teaches you to live life! I was amazed at the author’s creativity and her memory that was able to recall so many trivial incidents from her life.
The stories are short and crisp. At the end of every story, the lessons derived from it are described, which are sometimes interesting, sometimes funny and sometimes profound.
The book easily establishes a connection with the readers and leaves an everlasting impression. My personal favourites from the book are – Please hug me-I’m just like you (An emotional account of a day spent with children suffering from HIV/AIDS), Radiators and Drains (The two types of people in everybody’s life), Dance like no one is watching (A funny account of a Sunday spent dancing!) and Smile- Tomorrow may be worse! (Do I need to explain this?)
The first and last chapters of the book, My special Friend and How this book came to be are very emotional, as the author tells us about her relationship with her dad. In the end, the book leaves you smiling with tears.
THE NOT-SO GOODS!
A friend who also happened to read the book said he despised it and found it a waste of time, for he was applying his brain too much. So, if you’re looking for heavy reading, don’t go for it.
If you are someone who reads books to channelize your brain and derive some facts and figures out of it, don’t go for this book. If you are someone who reads to get inspired and relieve stress, make this one your next pick. You won’t be disappointed, for sure!
