Best Comedy Book: The Bogus Read-Review


The book is a satire fiction based on Indian politics, written wonderfully with utter sarcasm and wit, that makes it the best comic book on political fiction. Oops. Perhaps too many compliments in too little space? Same is with the book: too much brilliance in the funny scenes into fewer pages.


Divyamaan won my heart. After a long time, I am actually impressed by an author’s writing style and the simplicity with which he had put his ideas into the reader’s mind. Every single character is beautifully written and reflects the exact idea which Divyamaan wanted to convey in the first place.


Mody using acronyms, the Wagah Border scene… I can’t describe how many laughters I got while reading this masterpiece. While reading this book, I had a constant smile on my face, and I can guarantee, you too will. This book does not deserve to be missed.


There’s not a lot to tell about this. Just a few words- Awesome. Hilarious. Irreplaceable. It is the best comic book on the political theme, undoubtedly.


The narration is connecting and the language used is simple. Some prior knowledge of current political scenario will be making the read more fruitful (funny).

The book cover could’ve been better, though. Ouch.


I’d be waiting to read more of the author’s work in future.
