Pyjamas are Forgiving by Twinkle Khanna




There sitting on that porch, that light-eyed man, a pitta like me, was my ex-husband and that woman whose inner element I was unaware of, unless bitch is accepted as an undiscovered fourth dosha, was his young wife.
In the serene sanctuary of Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa where food is rationed, sex forbidden and emotions centered, Anshu meets someone familiar and deeply unsettling – her ex-husband. Bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas Are Forgiving confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers.


Having read all the other books by the author I really had high hopes with this one and read the whole book with much anticipation. The cover is incredible and really adds on to the whole look with the white cover. The title of the book is marvelous and relatable to everyone as we all really like being ourselves into the pajamas and pajamas never judge.

As far as the content is concerned the plot line chosen was overall fine but somewhere in the execution it didn’t touch hearts like it always does. The humor always was on point and you will definitely get to learn many new words in the book. The first few pages of the book really holds you through after a while you lose interest in the story. The story revolves around Anshu’s emotions and the ashram she is in Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa . Pace of the book is slow. Not a page turner after a while.

Characters failed to put a mark over the story. The author tried to touch upon the #metoo movement. The dialogues seemed bland. The book is a one time read. Extensive detailing could have been cut off but overall an okay read.

overall -3/5
