Book: Life is Funny
Published by: Notion Press
Number of pages: 132 pages
My Rating: 2.5/5
MY REVIEW: The author Arun provided me with a copy of his book in exchange for an honest review.
The story is about a young man Arjun Kapoor (not the Bollywood actor) who is bored with his job. He gathers his college friends into joining him on a vacation to Goa.
The story deals with his preparations for the trip, his flight to Goa and his stay there with his friends.
Their vacation sounds like every other young man’s vacation to Goa, they drink, go to clubs, check out women and drive around on bikes and go to the beach.
Arjun is the type of person who tries to find humour in every situation. The most interesting point in the story takes place when he meets an Israeli girl Christina. He teaches Christina to meditate and they exchange stories about their life experiences. However, after that, they do not stay in touch.
The story ends with Arjun and his friends leaving Goa and going back to their routine lives.
I found the story lacking in any exciting moments. “Life is Funny” is a book that is nothing out of the ordinary.
