Kiran’s narrative is as easy as ever, the language excellent, without being highbrow. I have been reading Kiran’s blogs for years now, and her books have the same sense of innate humor, which make them such a good read.
When I met Kiran recently over a lunch she hosted, everyone had the same question – had she actually been on a cruise before she wrote the book? It was a reasonable question, and, it is only when you read the book, that you realize just how impressive her research has been, that she has written about the cruise in such amazing detail, without ever being on one! I haven’t been on one either, but her descriptions of the rooms, of the cruise experience, of the sites they stop at, are so realistic and well written, I found myself wondering if I could ever write about a place so well, without actually going there!
Overall, All Aboard is the kind of book I pick up when I am between books, and want a good, but easy read, to help me relax.
Meanwhile, I am looking forward to her next book – Karmic Kids – the story of parenting nobody told you! – which is based on her blog… the one I have been reading for years, even before I met her!
