Review: Tender Hooks

Moni Mohsin’s book ‘The Diary of a Social Butterfly’ was a laugh out loud, hilarious book about Butterfly Khan and her hip page 3 life in Karachi! Tender Hooks brings Butterfly back…and how!! Back with her is also Kulchoo (her son), Janoo (her husband), Jonkers (her cousin), Aunt Pussy (Jonker's mom) Uncle Cock-Up (Jonker’s Dad!).Yet another immensely entertaining and all out fun book from Moni Mohsin!

Butterfly has been entailed the task of finding a new wife for her recently divorced cousin, Jonkers. She would have never agreed to do it but has been forced by her Aunt Pussy (if you please!). So Butterfly gets to work on finding him a rich, fair, beautiful type of wife! As Butterfly schemes through shaadis, GTs (get togethers) and kitty partied trying to find a suitable girl from the right bagground. But what she doesn’t realize is that Jonkers has his own ideas about his perfect mate.

So Butterfly manages to keep the reader hooked and entertained till the very end with her broken English, her love for her family, her fighting goons and more importantly her love for parties! Though Butterfly comes across as someone who is all shallow and blabber, she does offer observations about Pakistan’s politics and state of affairs that exist there.

I would highly recommend this book. Witty, wicked and absolutely entertaining! A total laugh riot!

Now I eagerly look forward to Butterly’s next adventure!
