Book Review: HAPPIMESS




I reviewed several books in the past but HAPPIMESS by Biswajit Banerji is completely different. HAPPIMESS is a collection of naughty stories that not only make us laugh but also invoke poking fun at several social faces. The stories covered in the book are similar to the real-life happenings surrounding us. Sometimes, you should have thought about a particular thing but later asked few people as to which way to go.

The first chapter examines the connection between Humans and Electrical equipment. He covered the indicator lamp with something and the rest of the chapter sounds funny. If you ever wondered which way to walk, then the second chapter is for you. The real scenario surrounding life insurance has been explained well. It looks like the author has engaged someone before marriage but ended up something else.

Frankly speaking, I never heard of the term Haggling and the next chapter examines the basic requirements to attend Haggling class. I loved to read through the study materials during my graduation days. In HAPPIMESS, the author talks about some other material. The author also mentions the cure for this problem and I laughed extremely loud.

The story revolving around rats and invitations have been covered in the next chapter. It’s pretty long stuff and you should probably take a long break with hot tea to catch up the remaining chapters. If you are living in a society or apartment complex, you should worry about someone and this has been covered very well by the author. The author has employed funny titles for each chapter to attract readers. This includes a term commonly used in the game of Cricket.

The content of the book is less but you will find the whole coverage very casual and interesting. The chapters talk about things you could have faced in real life but never thought about them later. The paper quality is excellent and the font style is pretty decent to read. You will not face any eye strain after an extended reading session. If you are an avid reader, you can make notes for extended reading.

Biswajit has made a great attempt to present the stories in a lucid style. HAPPIMESS is the sure winner and will be a useful companion during leisure time. We highly recommend HAPPIMESS for all your pleasure reading requirements.
