    I had great fun reading this book I giggled poring over its pages Tho I was running the serious risk of forgetting English language, since there are lot of puns and misuse of language Also, it is Hinglish, actually Punjlish a mix of Punjabi and English as north Indians speak.However, butterfly as we know is a dimwit, rich Pakistani woman who lives with her husband Janoo and son Kulchoo In her world view, being khandanni, khaata peeta rich and being good looking is virtue Her stupidity I had great fun reading this book I giggled poring over its pages Tho I was running the serious risk of forgetting English language, since there are lot of puns and misuse of language Also, it is Hinglish, actually Punjlish a mix of Punjabi and English as north Indians speak.However, butterfly as we know is a dimwit, rich Pakistani woman who lives with her husband Janoo and son Kulchoo In her world view, being khandanni, khaata peeta rich and being good looking is virtue Her stupidity and shallowness often baffles people around her including her oxford educated Janoo who she calls oxen for this reason Butterfly is not malicious, just superficial Moni Mohsin s accomplishment lies not in creating an entertaining dimwit character but the fact that she is able to comment about crucial political issues that are happening in the country through the eyes of this character She is able to call out cruelty of fundamentalists, hypocrisy of Pak politicians There are a couple of digs at Imran Khan for supporting Taliban A queer coincidence is that the day I finished reading this book, Taliban slaughtered 132 kids and world was baying for Imran s blood only for a day tho.Between you, me and four walls, I toh loved this book ki pucho hi mat As Moni Mohsin would say

    I read the synopsis and came across many spelling mistakes which I brushed off as typos It wasn t until few pages in that I realized that this was the writing style Suchay novelty A compilation of short stories of sorts No plot line, just descriptive events Felt like I was reading a text or a blogpost with someone ranting about multitudes of things I know so many people who think like the protagonist and her friends It s so sad Janoo was my fave character Definitely continuing the serie I read the synopsis and came across many spelling mistakes which I brushed off as typos It wasn t until few pages in that I realized that this was the writing style Suchay novelty A compilation of short stories of sorts No plot line, just descriptive events Felt like I was reading a text or a blogpost with someone ranting about multitudes of things I know so many people who think like the protagonist and her friends It s so sad Janoo was my fave character Definitely continuing the series and starting with its predecessor Sure it was funny but few puns were a little over the top and there was a lot of repetition Liked the Girly cover 3.5 stars

    This book is the third book in Moni Mohsin s social butterfly series The first two books are The Diary of a Social Butterfly and Duty Free.However, you don t have to read the earlier books to enjoy this one, it reads pretty well standalone.A book depicting a lifestyle such as this would normally be quite abhorrent for me, but Moni Mohsin has a wonderful humorous writing style She uses malapropisms and a broken Urdu English vocabulary to really paint a hilarious picture of Butterfly and her f This book is the third book in Moni Mohsin s social butterfly series The first two books are The Diary of a Social Butterfly and Duty Free.However, you don t have to read the earlier books to enjoy this one, it reads pretty well standalone.A book depicting a lifestyle such as this would normally be quite abhorrent for me, but Moni Mohsin has a wonderful humorous writing style She uses malapropisms and a broken Urdu English vocabulary to really paint a hilarious picture of Butterfly and her friends and family When I started reading, I was a bit turned off by the rampant spelling mistakes and wrong word usage, but after reading a couple of chapters, I realized just how deliberate and funny these mistakes are.However, what I felt was a drawback in this book is the lack of any overarching story Even in an epistolary novel, I expect there to be some sort of a plot, with a logical start and finish, and that is completely missing in this novel And this lack of plot made me feel like I was reading a satirical column in a magazine in fact I wouldn t be surprised if this book is merely a compilation of the author s columns in a publication

    As uproariously funny as the previous installments takes a special skill to maintain the unique vocabulary of the Malika of Malapropisms but Ms Mohsin pulls it off most adroitly, and in the process, provides us one of the most penetrating but humourous satires ever penned in the subcontinent.

  7. Gayathri says:

    From the cool GT s in London to the Gup shup in Isloo, Butterfly is an active member in all of this This book is awesome Moni Mohsin has written a fab book based on the lives of the rich in Pakistan.
