    Shubha Menon makes a fine debut with this book and weaves in the psychology of a married woman who seeks all those romantic fantasies that she has read in the fictions since romance is missing in her marriage ironic to the fact that she plans magical weddings for others being a wedding planner More of a chick lit novel I must say but a fun and easy read altogether climaxing with a good note.

    If there is one word to describe the book, it is HILARIOUS.The book has been written from Mini s perspective and is funny from the word go The language is simple and the scenes have been described in such a way that visualizing them is so easy and once they came in front of my eyes, I could not help laughing, irrespective of where I was sitting For a debut, it is an excellent book More on metroreader.wordpress 201

    The story He was astride a black motorbike, his face hidden by a jet black helmet Behind him, his satin cloak billowed like a sail What a story The character of Mini can be of any Indian woman who though not going through a midlife crisis but wandering how did she reach at this point of her life When they have everything, yet there is no satisfaction Maybe because the first bloom of love is over, the flush of youth has died down and most of all idealism has been replaced by reality This is the p [...]

    Note A review of this book has been posted in my Blog Book and Ink as a part of TBC book tours The primary characters of romance book these days are 20 something who crave attention to be read as love What after they get married and turn 40 Does that sizzling romance still stay Of course not Even fiction writers don t attempt to talk about romance and 40 year old women It s totally high time that subject is broached in our books Shuba, the writer of this book seemed to be one among the early bir [...]

    It s the story of India coming of age.That s the story of a mind swinging like a pendulum between hope and despair hope of a new lease of life and despair after finding out that life The story of deep realization in life has been served in the coating of humour.That s the story of Mini the twenty first century Indian urban woman told fascinatingly by Shubha Menon in her hilarious romantic comedy The second coming Our protagonist Mini is a little overweight and still dreams of making it again to [...]

    My review hereI was giggling or grinning most of the time when reading the book Mini, you are adorable To the traditional Indian mind, it can cause trauma but I am glad it didnt portray a morale principle abiding tale.See the narration is so natural, I am describing Mini as if she is real life The comical scenes are hilarious.Shubha, you can also become a good food writer Just a tip

    The Second Coming is an adventurous tale where a forty plus woman named Mini comes to peace with herself and her current situation Thus, embracing, and treasuring what she has after she has seen, lived, experienced that grass is also not green on the other side of the fence that she had been fantasizing about.This book had a jaunty way of describing the day to day life of Mini, who was actually going nuts in finding her dream lover who would make her heart tick at each of his moves In spite of h [...]

    The title is apt this book is also a Second Coming for the chick lit genre After your twenty somethings have been exhausted by stories of love, work and life, well, life still remains, and must be lived Everything that lives on from teens and twentties fills this book crushes on one s peers, conspiratorial friendships, the heaving ups and downs and big big surprises life throws at you from little corners you did not peek Great book, and that too with a saucy accompaniment of Shubha s young and v [...]

    A pathetic attempt to write a story Two stars for making no gross mistakes in the language And for writing a book that s not half as revolting as the junk that turn up as best sellers.
