Amit Chhabra 19 May, Simply loved the characters of Akhil and Jassi – so different, yet so similar. Nandita is also cute, though i wondered how such a strong girl could come under family pressure.
The great thing about the book is that it has so many genuine insights about America. For example, we always hear that there are no family values or ‘culture’ in America. Amreekkan is clearly not true. Unfortunately Indian people only seem to be picking up all the bad values from America, while ignoring the good things they d Pooja 18 Jun, This book is a very insightful commentary on how Indian people live their lives in the great Amreeka.
I have been following Atulya’s blog for many years now and love his style of writing. While this book is not his trademark satirical writing style, it still makes for a refreshing, fun account of two desi lads who arrive in America searching for their American dream.
While i don’t want to give away any spoilers, there’s Goyalji loved his characterAkhil’s wacky dad, his drama queen mom, o Kritika Singh 18 Jun, Picked up this amree,an after hearing my friends rave about it.
Boy, am I glad. Its very rare that you come across a book that actually makes you laugh, out loud: My husband actually walked into the room, concerned, when I kept laughing, all by myself, or rather with ‘Masters of America’.
Its amazing how the author has made the every-indian-goes-through-experiences so ,well, funny! Funny I am told is his thing. Must read, if you are a prospective,’FOB’ for tips!
Me Singh 18 Jun, Amreekandesi manages to bring back days you have spent in the US. If you haven’t been able to then you know how exactly it feels out there esp. One of those books which are not easy to put down once you have started if you like humor as a dexi. Now waiting for this to become a movie which I certainly feel it will. A big fan of the author! The style of writing is amazing! Its funny in such a genuine way that you would just have to laugh!
Light read, perfect for a Sunday Afternoon: It captures vesi essence of both sides of the coin ‘Amreekan ‘ amreekqn ‘ desi ‘ so perfectly that you would just want to read on!
Akriti Certified Buyer 17 May, Devika Mahajan 14 May, His sense of humor is obviously judgmental but extremely tacky, worth a follow. He amreekn flawless in exhibiting presence of mind to describe simple everyday parts n parcels of life into a laughter riot. His ability in galvanizing comedy and drama shows his ability to exhibit even minute issues as tremendous funny episodes of life.
The story is a next door comprehension of Indian household and their American Dreams with all puns inte If u ammreekan US of A by only movies and news then this is a must read! It’s characters are like us not the complex and “colors”ful ones with real ways and realistic dreams and thats why are easy to visualize. It’s also motivating at the same time if you are one of those who think a lot before doing something.
Last but not the least a handy zmreekan I picked up this book on a friend’s recommendation. He said that he read it in one go and that it is super funny. After reading the book, i am amazed.
