About this deal

I'M GONNA TRY TO EXPLAIN WHY BUT HONESTLY YOU CAN NOT UNDERSTAND PERFECTION UNTIL YOU EXPERIENCE IT SO READ THIS BOOK! We work closely with publishers and authors to ensure that we offer the best books on the market for your child. Gupta, I’m looking at you, girl), Kareena and her non-toxic meddling aunties are a breath of fresh air.

Kareena and Prem are engaging protagonists, and the relationships they each share with their closest friends are fresh and fun. Even though I'm not Indian, I'm a daughter of immigrants and definitely found myself relating to Kareena.I enjoyed none of the sex scenes because Prem is a soggy douche canoe with holes I don’t want to see filled.

She does this all on her own, but also with the help of her aunties, who all consider her as their own after her mother’s passing. Many children of immigrants feel pressure to be who our parents want us to be, even at the expense of our own happiness. If she can find her soulmate by the date of the party, he’ll gift her the house, and she’ll be able to keep her mother’s legacy alive. I'm not sure what the author was aiming for, but the storytelling is chaotic, the dialogues are cringy, and every single character is awful and has little to no development.Kareena’s family was trash to her for the entire book which was obviously WONDERFUL for the vibes of this book.

Why do Desi authors amplify this aspect of our culture, to the point where it feels like a caricature and mockery? Dil is my rom-com wishlist come to life: a determined heroine, a stubborn (but secretly squishy) hero, and banter for days!That’s why on the morning of her thirtieth birthday, she’s decided to suit up and enter the dating arena. While Kareena is inspired by Kate from Taming of the Shrew, her personality means so much more in the context of South Asian communities and values. Inspired by Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, the story is about a love-phobic TV doctor trying to convince a love-obsessed lawyer that they are meant to be together.

Esse livro serviu muito as tropes “boy obsessed”, “meet-cute” apelidos fofos, 🔥 de respeito e demonstrações de amor. Additionally, Prem is coddled by his mother at several points throughout the novel (as, let’s face it, many South Asian men are) whereas Kareena has to repeatedly stand up for herself to her father and grandmother. DIL has a lot of good parts: great stories framed in Indian-American culture, laugh-out-loud moments, a strong and smart female lead, and a doctor who starts out dreamy and then fizzles.If she can find her soulmate by the date of the party, he'll gift her the house, and she'll be able to keep her mother's legacy alive. Kareena Mann dreams of having a love story like her parents, but she prefers restoring her classic car to swiping right on dating apps. I feel like as someone who also grew up with immigrant parents, I always wanted to do the very best in everything because I wanted to make sure all my parents sacrifices would mean something, that I could show them the hard work was worth it. The author tried hard to make it look like she was demolishing stereotypes, but in my opinion, she just ended up reinforcing these stereotypes.
