When Mira Went Forth And Multiplied

liked it 3.0  ·  Rating details ·  9 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Sam is 'The One' for Mira. Mira is Sam's better, er, half. A faithful ex, an unfaithful wife - both ferociously ovulating - and a man who has the worst of both worlds. * A distinctive understative style, humorous and witty writing. * The characters are funny and impactful at the same time. * The rampant clawing desperation makes for a good read.

A difficult book to rate for me as the book was completely different from what I had thought it would be. Judging by its cover I thought it would be a light read with some good humor, but how I was wrong. It does start on quite a few funny notes but then it takes the reader to a journey of broken marriage, acute heartbreaks, family drama etc.
The book starts with the story of Mira who has recently come to the big city Bengaluru and romanticizes of soon finding her soulmate, but this wish of hers
