Just Married Please Excuse: Review

                  Book Name:  Just Married Please Excuse.              
Author:  Yashodhara Lal
Cost: Rs.199
Rating: 4.5/5

When I saw this book up for reviews in Indiblogger my first thought was, "What a strange title", and ofcourse as usual, I was interested in reading this book as well. I was excited when I found out I was selected to review this book. The day I finally got it with me, I was busy reading some other book and hence this had to wait. 

Once I started reading this book, I thought it lived up to my first thoughts of the title, the book was also very strange. As I kept on reading, I found myself laughing out loud at some parts, whereas some parts just brought me down. But I loved each and every bit of it. The book is filled with bits of Emotion, Humor, Jealousy, Cuteness and last but never the least, LOVE.

The book had me hooked from the starting till the end. I just wanted to flip some pages and go right to the end to find out what happened, because I was that curious. To thank the heavens, the ending was just perfect. When I was somewhere in the middle, I was really hoping that the author wouldn't give just some ending, but make it a crazy, strange ending. And to make me happy the author did the exact same thing.
Now, about the author. To be truthful, I had never heard of her before her book came up for review, and now I really do wish to know her. Cause her writing is just splendid. She has woven the words in such a nice manner, taking us all on an imaginary ride through the lives of  "Y", Her husband, the little Peanut, and of course not to forget Kajal. Her words had me struck to the story and made me enjoy each bit of it.  

So as a conclusion, I'm really impressed with this book. I loved it to the core, and I wouldn't mind reading it a few more times. I would totally recommend it to all the book lovers, Its worth reading. And I give it 4.5 rating out of five.

Caution: Marriage Ahead …
Yashodhara, a quick-tempered gal from the big city, is hitched to Vijay, a laidback desi boy from a small town – in one word, trouble! The young couple must learn to adjust to married life and to each other – whether it is Yashodhara’s ‘tamper tentrums’ or Vijay’s foot-in-mouth syndrome – with a little help from their idiosyncratic staff Zarreena and Vinod, their nutty friend Vivi and, of course, their respective families.

With the unexpected arrival of baby Anoushka a.k.a Peanut, the battles escalate, fuelled by their vastly divergent views on raising a child. Will their many differences – so endearing at the start of their romance – actually turn out to mean that they are just incompatible? Will they ever manage to agree on anything? Or have they just bitten off more than they can chew?

A fresh and honest take on marriage and parenthood, this is a story of self-discovery that will have you laughing out loud – and sympathizing wholeheartedly with its quirky and likeable cast of characters.

Yashodhara Lal graduated from IIM-Bangalore in 2002 and has over a decade of experience in the corporate world, across the FMCG and media industries. She lives in Gurgaon with her husband Vijay and the three children who they innovatively refer to as Peanut, Pickle and Papad. Yashodhara began her journey in writing with her blog, described as a serious attempt to take life less seriously, now at Just Married, Please Excuse is her first book.
