Marin Ireland has brought this story to life so beautifully, that you get hooked from the very first minute. The prose and plot are just as engaging and the characters are so hilarious!! Highly recommended!!

The story of Perveen Mistry, the first female lawyer of India, is an amazing tale. I absolutely loved the story, but the narration was very poor. The pace is uneven, so you have to keep adjusting the speed, and the volume and clarity changes every few minutes. At several places, the narrator mumbles the end of a sentence, which is not at all clear. But the story is so good that I got hooked, and kept listening inspite of all that. I intend to buy the book too as soon as this lockdown is over.

Great narration

Meryl Streep is a great narrator, adding flavours of her own to the story. The story begins with Rachel, a cookbook writer and housewife, finding out that her husband is cheating on her. Dealing with infidelity is hard on any day, but it’s especially difficult when you’re seven months pregnant, and have another toddler in tow. And that’s the situation Rachel finds herself in. With the support of her friends and family, and with a healthy dose of humour and food, she deals with her problems.
