Book Review: The Diary of a Social Butterfly

If you want a good laughter then The Diary of a Social Butterfly by Moni Mohsin is what you should lay your hands on. This is a difficult to keep down book filled with humor and silliness...

The book is a diary of a silly socialite called Butterfly who is completely unfazed by the happenings around her. All she cares about is her parties, get together (GT as she calls them), shopping, trips to London....Each of her diary entry begins with two contrasting headings, a political heading and another one to her own self. The constant misspellings and incorrect pronunciations in her diary are the one's to watch out for. It completely changes the meaning of the sentence and leaves you laughing out loud. I loved the way the conversations go between her and her husband Janoo...poor guy.

This is definitely a light read and will surely lighten up your mood. The book is inspired from the collection of the author’s own columns written for Pakistan’s national weekly, The Friday Times.
