Zarreen Khan's My Best Friend's Son's Wedding is a hilarious and heartwarming book about friendship, love, belonging, loss of a loved one, family drama, and socialite drama. The story is narrated by Kittu, who is best friends with Minty Sood, who is technically the daughter-in-law of the Sood family, but has always been their adopted daughter after her husband Sunny Sood died after three months of marriage.
In her younger years, Minty had been a single parent and had led a lonely life. She is more than happy to be married again, but is hesitant about the timing. She does not want her son's in-laws to think she is unreliable because she wants to get married at this age. As Minty is torn between her newfound love and her responsibilities towards her son, her best friend Kittu jumps in to guide her through this roller coaster ride.
As Kittu narrates her friend Minty's story, she adds her own perspective and funny one-liners to make for a complete laugh riot. In addition to the humor, the close-knit family also impresses the reader, despite the story being set in the background of wealthy business families. Even Minty's son Parth appears mature and sensible in contrast to the young characters we see today. As the reader reads, twists are thrown every few pages, especially the identity of Miss Muffet, which remains a secret.
The narration style was easygoing and interesting. Each character is relatable and is portrayed well. All those types of characters can easily be spotted us. Also, I appreciated the way the author portrayed Minty's friendship with her best friend.
