    I loved loved loved this book true, I know almost nothing about people with Punjabi roots living in Britain so for me it has been a revelation and I was surprised how quickly I started to like all three main characters to follow their paths and to fear for them, to laugh with them and to understand them as a woman maybe of a different cultu

    I didn t write a review before, but reading others I felt I had to respond I thought it was a bit offensive that people labeled this light just because it s about women s lives doesn t mean it s light at all Do you call death, infidelity, social injustice, etc light In fact, I think this contains quite a meaningful examination of a lot of importan

    .and neither is this book Entertaining in it s way, but it does feel somewhat like Meera Syal is treading water with this one particularly in comparison to it s predecessor Anita Me.

    A greatly enjoyable and engrossing read, set in London s East End, telling the stories of young women from Punjabi backgrounds.Each individual has a dilemma, and her story is linked to another member of the group There are very funny, laugh aloud moments, plus some times of intense sadness I got completely into each of their stories There is Chila, so innocent,

    I see a little bit of myself in each of the three main characters My friends from class assumed that Tania would be my Punjabi alter ego Features that stand out from other Asian girls, Westernized attitude, etc But I d like to think that I grew out of rejecting my native culture after studying abroad.It was Sunita that really spoke to me She s an ex bra burning femini

    A good piece of chick lit Nice to read after you get through something heavy in my case i was reading a lot about child soldiers in africa, i needed something light Also Sayal has a perfect, razor sharp, witty writing style I am always impressed by books that can make me laugh outloud.

    An interesting read portraying the journey of three British Asian girls as they battle with the sense of not belonging to either culture, never fitting in with either At times I felt I could relate to their hardships, despite feeling that the Indians have it better than the Arabs as they struggle to break free from all the labels placed on them, but on the whole, I also felt a self of rel

    Recommended to me by my sister, I ended up really liking this book for a number of reasons Firstly, it s written by Meera Syal who you may know from Goodness Gracious Me or any number of the other things she s contributed to So needless to say there s a good amount of dry humor but each of the three main characters are incredibly compelling and although they are worlds different from one another

    I sort of expected this book to be funnier as most of its reviews said that it was hilarious However, even though the story wasn t as funny as I expected, the story eas extremely touching It is an emotional novel, and you might find yourself feeling genuinely about many of the characters in the book.
