7 Reasons To Read ‘The BNO – Sex, Life and Hookah’
Manoj Jain's 'The BNO - Sex, Life and Hookah' is a book on human relationships and sexuality. It tells a story of eight friends, who meet once in a while for a night out.
The BNO looks at how the lives of eight relationships get affected by a casual night out. From the lonely housewife to the travelling businessman, the book delves into the very private lives of married couples and how a single night can alter all existential equations.
The book sketches the urban Mumbai life in a dark marking pencil. Desperation, frustration, despair and lust lurk around. It doesn't read like a book, rather a diary of a horny teenager. While Jain has supposedly missed out on the literary charm, the book definitely succeeds in haphazard chronicling of events of men. The fast paced novel also qualifies for a comfortable read. Just a word of caution: This is certainly not for women with feminist bent of mind.
Here are 7 major quotes from the book that make the book a one-time read:
