    1. This was a fun read, especially the first 3 4th Would have been 4 stars if the last quarter wasn t that bizarre as to boggle my senses Saba is an intelligent 20 year old who is physically outshone by her dazzling elder siblings, and starts venting her feelings in a blog, which soon explodes beyond her expectations The story revolves around her brother s wedding festivities Life is not smooth for the upper middle class family as unexpected hurdles are thrown their way, which become a little too m [...]

    2. Brilliantly written, it s fun, juvenile, full of what is next type curiosity while readng it i felt like watching a complete bollywood masala movie by imagining all the lead stars of bollywood as Q,Y,X,T AND B.

    3. There have been very few books that I ve completed, at a stretch, being glued to my seat and this gets added to the list Three words to describe the book Smooth, Breezy and Racy And it is this pace that doesn t allow you to put the book down.The character Saba is someone who you would instantly fall in love with I don t want to sound diplomatic, but the book has got all the necessary ingredients to call it a good read Relationships, emotions, responsibilities and colour.The book leaves me with a [...]

    4. Some scattered thoughts on My Brother s Wedding So refreshing to read a book about contemporary Muslim characters, and ones who are not in the story as token insertions or political statements I need to read about people with beautiful names like Rabia, Saba, Uzair, Zohaib Andaleeb Wajid has no pretensions that she is writing great literature that is inaccessible to many readers She s writing about people she knows, mostly from a middle class, urban background Though I must read Kitestrings and [...]

    5. This is my favourite of the Andaleeb collection I loved Saba and Shahid I fell in love with Shahid and could have slapped Zohaib multiple times That s how well these characters are etched out With this book her third book, but I read it before her second book Get it , she has really worked on her characters, etched them out, not made them as predictable as it was in Kite Strings my review on this point review show One of the things I love about Andaleeb s characterisation is how she portrays the [...]

    6. A fun breezy interesting read Though this is the kind of book you would want to finish in one sitting, it took me nearly a week as I could only find so much time to read.I just wish Andaleeb Wajid was popular, because she actually deserves it unlike numerous other writers of so called National Bestsellers Looking forward to reading her other books which I have procured recently D

    7. This is the type of book which you start reading and then you cannot keep it down until you are finished The language and the style of writing is so simple that you can quickly relate to each of the characters I literally fell in love with Shahid Do boys like Shahid exist in real I doubt Overall I had a wonderful and lovely experience with this book.

    8. There are some books we buy because we like the author, some because we have heard about and there are some we buy because we like the name, it is catchy, its different I bought this book because of the name, My Brothers Wedding and the cover, a girl sitting with a laptop and the cursive font in which the title is written I had never heard of Andaleeb Wajid or even known that she has a blog Once I started reading, I could not keep the book down, even while I was teaching my kids till I read the [...]

    9. Being an avid lover of Weddings and events that happen around it, I have been wanting to read this book for quite sometime Also, I had read a newspaper article about the Author, Andaleeb and was quite impressed with the way she had explained her works Neverthless to say, Muslim Wedding Biriyanis are the best Coming to the book itself Though it seemed otherwise like a dramatic family story , the major twist comes from the youngest in the family who chooses the cyberspace to vent out her feelings [...]

    10. It s been ages since I read a book that had me completely engrossed in it, so much so that I completed it in just two readings I loved the character Saba I could relate to her multiple times feel her excitement, sadness, doubts, and her confusion and desperation towards Shahid who is my other favorite character I hated and then sympathized with Rabia as the book progressed Kudos to the author for making them all look so real I loved that every other chapter of the book was a blog post The transi [...]

    11. When 19 year old Saba seeks out the anonymity of cyberspace to vent about the insanity related to her brother s impending nuptials, she s fairly certain all she s offering is a secret blog that records everything that happens in a typical Muslim wedding in detail Of course, airing the antics of her near and dear ones is flirting dangerously close to revenge, disownment and quick annihilation in case the origins of the blog are ever traced back to her So she assigns a single initial to each famil [...]

    12. The book talks about about Saba, a 19 year old girl who runs a secret blog to rant about all the drama surrounding her brother s wedding Things take a turn and the limelight shifts from the wedding to her own life.The book obviously caught my attention due to the blogging angle and then there was a big fat Indian wedding in the story, so basically everything pointed out that it will be a good read however I was left a little disappointed.I love the story, its different than the usual run of the [...]

    13. I m a lazy reader and have managed to finish reading very few books in their entirety This is one such, thanks to its fast paced story line and the sudden turn of events The protagonist Saba, is a young adult whose character one will easily fall in love with The new format of the interspersed blog and narration is a first that I have come across and find it very engaging Overall a great read

    14. A little on the lines of a daily soap But highly gripping and keeps you hooked till the end A fun and easy read.

    15. An light yet endearing read with very very likable characters And a nice idea to blend in a blog with the proceedings to help the story move forward.


    16. A fun and casual read Read it in a day and had so much fun doing just that.
