I think pages of 'cribbing' as you call it is very less for someone married for 20 years. But I did find h Yes, Amateurish is what I felt when I read your review. But yes, I wouldnt have expected more from somebody who is just on the door steps of marriage, and who probably have had nothing much to relate with what has been written in the book.

The way you have written is good though I don't agree completely with you I just recently started reading the book,but I find it quite good The way she has explained the problems of all marriages and given its solution,I guess you may have f Rohit, After going through the book, I felt is worth giving a read. You review reflect your approach to marriage and women. You should have been married by now, so try giving the book a second read.

Give your wife her amount of But sincerely your comment has hurt me in more than one way. I dont know, thats what I felt after reading this book as what she has written I had already read a lot in a lot of western websites and some of the parts are straight pick ups, I can g Yes, it is worth a read no doubt.

I dont know how else to react to your comment.


I think this is the first review you put all things correct, but still putting all things correct was not sufficient On Shoba, I am yet to read any of her books or articles Paulsb02 Jun 03, Yes, I will invite you to pls go ahead and give her a shot and than come back with your views. Rohit Bhai, Very good review.

Aarambhh Jun 10, She is a jumped up pornography writer pretending to be a writer, who for years earned her daily bread by writing rubbish articles on half-imagined goings-on, in the bedrooms of Indian actors.

M India. Spouse - The Truth About Marriage.

Mar 23, This books looks more dedicated to the fast and advanced life of Mumbai. Non fiction Pages: All the Mr. Credit to her to quote her own examples, shortcomings to make it more relatable and non preachy. There are numerous books on relationship, yet it made me curios because of its uniqueness , practicality and advises which no one gives you Though at times there are repititins and whole book could be lil compact, but I felt a tinge when it finished A must must gift as wedding gift to newly weds.

Book: Spouse-The truth about marriage

It has covered beautifully everything , be it dealing with much hyped MIL, long distance, family rituals, sex, hobbies, children, parties The filmy headlines certainly add interest Most of the advice is what your grandmom's will give you, yet author tells at the same time how to walk out with head held high if things are not going anywhere It is a perfect mix of grandmom's nushkha and modern suggestions I wish books like these will create more openness and while toiling for the search of perfect partner, people would have realistic expectations from marriage as well More such books are needed, one of the most socially relevant books I have read in recent times I was never a fan of Shobhaa De but somehow I was just mislead by title and read it.

My biggest mistake ever. According to me Shobhaa De just presents any topic in very very shallow manner in her typical sarci saucy language. The book is yes, about marriage, and non fiction , she's largely written about her own "perfect" marriage which is not too exciting , society gossip about her friends and acquaintances I didn't really care for the tone of the book which as I said, felt like sympathetic scornful mockery of women and men in bad realationships.

I liked the way she started chapters with a song , yes, even if it was corny and I really liked the fact that she touched upon ALL aspects of an urban Indian marriage. So don't pick up this for advice. It's just a long compilation of essays on various aspects of married life in India written in shobhaa's typical sarci saucy style. It's not that bad also, just OK but I didn't see the point of reading it.

I read this while I was going through a divorce and the number of things that rang true were amazing. She has great insight. See all 7 reviews. Would you like to see more reviews about this item? Go to Amazon. I might have a bit idealist view of relationships but this is utter mockery of a marriage and most of all her husband.

Feb 16, Surya Pemasane rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: First of all, I want thank to Shobhana. She changed me lot and lot. She is really very cute in briefing each moment.

You know what If she is ready to adopt me, I am ready. She knows what child want, She knows what husband want, she know what others want and the main thing she knows what she really wants - These are the big things I have noticed in this book. Valuable pointers to married people Never thought I will ever read Shobha De I certainly got few tips May 21, Bima Choudhury rated it it was ok. I could personally relate to some of the situations which she explained but was equally disappointed by the remedies offered A lot of "Gyan" difficult to digest!!!

Jul 23, Sashikala Devalikar rated it it was ok. Nov 29, Poornima rated it really liked it. A practical, no-nonsense guide on how to handle a modern marriage. A bit dated now as was written nearly 14 years ago, but sensible in many ways.

Nov 15, Manpreet rated it really liked it. A decent read. Not all books of Shobhaa De are intelligent and insightful but this one is different and catches your attention. The title suggests it's a self-help book but it appeals like a biography with situations pouring out wisdom for the reader. Narrating your own life candidly requires a lot of courage. Shobhaa De has done it well. Would like to read it over again after every 4- 5 years.

The gyaan in the book has no shelf life. Nov 12, Anushka rated it it was amazing.

I really enjoyed this book, an eye-opener about marriage, love, what it takes to make it work. Interesting to gain personal insight into the private life of Shobha De, Stardust journalist: P and see that our problems are in fact universal. Shobhaa De's advice on marriage is insightful and intelligent.

Even though the book was published 10 years ago, it's relevant today and will be for ages to come. The format and style of writing was easy, keeping the reader engaged. What honestly surprised me though was how traditional her outlook is! Her projected personality is so different from the one that comes out in this book! Definitely worth reading for married couples of any vintage.

Mar 28, Vinod Jayachandran rated it it was ok. This book is on same line with Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus but still far from close competition. Lot of repetition and written with really very well do and rich family back ground in mind, many cases, its hard to co-relate with your current situation. Apr 11, Kavitha rated it really liked it Shelves: Normally not a huge fan of Shobhaa De, but this is one different book.

Not much of a self-help book, but this provides insight into Indian marriage.

Can be a bit of a drag but worthy of a read. I like her examples and how she has covered almost every aspect of Indian marriages.

Better than what I expected from Shobha De, lots of sense and some absolute non-sense especially about stuffs not to share and being on your own most of times and having an agreement paper on it! Overall a decent book. Feb 04, Nisha rated it did not like it. Well, addressing all the issues central to an Indian marriage!

A pinch of drama, a scoop of facts, a sprinkle of exaggeration and lots of De masala You read her or discard her but you simply can't ignore her! Jul 07, Sheokhanda rated it really liked it Shelves: I read this book by accident but I must say that she talks wisely about marriage. She narrates her incident and those she knew in order to tell how not have a married life. She also gives an insight into how marriage should led. Interesting and wise words, one time read.

Book Review: Spouse-Shobhaa De

Jul 04, Namrata Rao rated it it was ok. It is a good read. There are a lot of things that makes sense but there are at the same time, lot of things that you wouldn't readily agree with. It is not for serious reading but it is one of those books that you will just pick up to amuse yourself and have a smile throughout while reading! Nov 30, Mihir rated it liked it. Filled with many real life experiences.
