"50 cups of Coffee" by Khushnuma Daruwala - Book Review


Recently got this book in mail and was eager and curious to read it. Not only the title awaken the coffee-lover in me, but recently had been doing a lot of research on matrimonial sites for a client-pitch and hence wanted to read this experience on the same.

Author Khushnuma is narrating her friend's story of meeting dozens of men from matrimonial sites and the good, bad and ugly. Though the instances are funny and there are some note-worthy lessons put at the end of each chapter, the book somehow failed to captivate me or hold my attention. It was too serious or suddenly jumped in places and I found myself struggling to turn pages. 

For me, a book is a 4/5 and above if I cannot keep it down till I finish it, that was lacking here. But overall, if you are someone who is not married and has some experience with matrimony site listings, there will be things to relate with and laugh at. For me that was not there either, thanks to a love marriage. Also, I have read a couple of other books with similar plots of 30+ single women finding it difficult to find the 'one' via dating or matrimonial sites...



About the book: 

Dating is an undeniably daunting task, especially when you're done with casual flings and are looking for the real deal to settle down with. When a 30-something woman signs up on a dating website for people looking to get married, she realizes just how delightful, vexing, amusing and befuddling trying to find the perfect husband can be. Based on real experiences, this book is not a guide to dating, but rather a delightful collection of episodes about meeting potential partners, epiphanies about them and soul-searching questions that will make you see relationships without the rose-tinted glasses.

Especially pertinent to this age of online dating, this delicious-as-a-cappuccino book is for all those in love, looking for love or in between. With advice as sage (gained the hard way) as that in He's Just Not That Into You and scenarios as funny and outrageous as those in Sex and the City, 50 Cups of Coffee is a hilarious, honest and witty book, perfect to curl up with when a suitable beau or bae is not available.

About the Author: 

After exciting childhood dreams that vacillated between astronomy, zoo keeping and diving with great white sharks, Khushnuma eventually settled for something a tad tamer-advertising. Six years ago, while on a sabbatical, she rediscovered her love for writing something more than creative briefs and PowerPoint presentations. Advertising and writing apart, she is extremely passionate about animal welfare, sustainability and of course, regular sabbaticals.

Obviously, these days it appears to be the expression "impenetrable espresso" is utilized all the more comprehensively to allude to some espresso that is blended in with fats like spread, coconut oil and MCT oil. The thought is that these fats, joined with caffeine, can give you a decent, supportable jolt of energy while likewise causing you to feel full and satisfied. NutraBurst

  35. Everyone knows that the latest economic bubble to burst had a lot to do with the real estate industry. And as a result, the entire real estate industry has taken a huge hit in terms of value, investor confidence, as well as in many other ways. This is bad news for those who are now underwater on their mortgages (they owe more on their mortgage than their home is actually worth), and it may seem like bad news for real estate professionals as well. But this is not necessarily the case for those that are able to generate enough real estate leads. soil preservation
