If you want to laugh...it is the best! An awesome book with light mood short stories. Lovely language, capturing description and easy tone. One of the best books to lift up your spirits. I just love Mr. Ruskin Bond's writing skills.

The Inimitable Ruskin Bond takes us back again to his childhood, but he as always stays kind of in the background in this one even as he highlights his crazy Uncle Ken and the wacko adventures (ordinary life turned upside down by a man who loves going through life 'zigzag')that Uncle Ken is propelled into, often not of his own seeking. Thoroughly enjoyable.

You may have read most of the stories in some other Ruskin Bond books. Ruskin Bond succeeded in bringing to life,the witty bachelor, who is famous for his enthusiasm for mistakes. Ruskin Bond, as a 10yr old boy, observes the way his Uncle responds to the never ending problems he had to face in his life, . Strangely Ken seems to me like a person who loves to face so much problems in life.

Words don't do justice to the quaint cozy world of Ruskin Bond's childhood. This is not just a book for children, it's one of those books that is necessary reading for anyone who enjoys childish hijinks. It's funny, sad and nostalgic in equal measure. It takes us back to the times when everything was so simple, yet so beautiful

Ruskin Bond here reminisces his childhood days which were full of lasting memories all thanks to his ever falling-into-problem uncle. It's a very light hearted book. A laughter medicine for all ailing minds, of all ages.
