The fertility of the Deol family – they reproduce faster than any other species known to mankind For four years now, Mona and Ramit have done the unthinkable and remained childless. Of course, that also means that they’ve battled that one question day in and day out: ‘Koi Good News?’ It doesn’t matter that they have been happy to be child-free – they are married; they are expected to make babies.

This story is so hilarious!! I was laughing my heart out while reading it.
Mona and Ramit as characters are so realistic and super adorable, they are like any other person we meet everyday! Their insecurities, thought process everything is so natural and relatable.
The Side characters, like both the mothers, Mona’s younger Sister, Ramit’s and Mona’s Glitzy Neighbours shined like diamonds. Zareen has definitely done a commendable job in portraying the characters
Zareen’s Narrative style is flawless. Also the fact that you are so involved in the story your emotions will fluctuate, while Mona’s and Ramit’s fluctuates.
This book is definitely not a thought provoking, life changing or a mind grinding book. But is definitely a funny take on the Indian society and Indian customs.
