P.G. Bhaskar - Mad in Heaven

Mad in HeavenMad in Heaven by P G Bhaskar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Prakash and Pushpa live in a vast penthouse atop Rishwath Towers in Chennai. They have two lovely and smart daughters. It is high time they get their older daughter, Priyanka, married. The younger, Palak, is also in line. A match may be made in heaven, but the parents on earth are going mad.

They look for several good groom that Priyanka shoots down on flimsy grounds. If this goes on, will she ever get married?

Palak has a string of boyfriends standing in line for her favor. Will she go and give her heart to some utter fool?

All these questions are turning their mother, Pushpa Prakash frantic with worry.

This novel is a hilarious ride. There is one crazy character after another, one crazy situation after another.

On the flip side, there are some unnecessary characters who clutter the story. There are too many side plots that confuse the reader. Also, some of the chapters are very short and the story moves away to another side plot just when you are getting your teeth into one.

It is a well written novel and makes you chuckle in many places. It is no surprise that the author has dedicated the novel to P.G.Wodehouse, the author he admires and shares initials with.
