Editorial Reviews

Review

"A Trip to the Hardware Store & Other Calamities" is a book of short stories that reflect on Venkataraman's family, some of her quirks, and ideas. I love love loved this book! I felt like I was listening to a dear friend talk while I was reading it.  "Where Did the Time Go" was very heartwarming. "Beyond Belief" was very cute and had a really charming dynamic between husband and wife. I really feel she saved the best for last though. "High Finance" was my favorite. It showed such a wonderful family bond. I really like Venkataraman's writing style. She conveys so much heartwarming emotion without spelling out what she wants you to feel. This is a great read. I would recommend it as a purse book. Stuff it in your purse and pull it out and read it in line at the bank, or in the waiting room at the pediatrician. It will definitely bring a smile to your day." ~Reviewed by Ginna Lamkie for Readers' Favorite~

"This collection of humorous essays captures snippets of real life. From the hardware store trip, to debt collection, to a failed dinner party, and the finance among friends, these little stories provide amusement." ~Dab of Darkness Reviews~ 

"If you listen to this one while you aredriving, be careful!  The stories will have you laughing so hard that youare liable to close your eyes at the wrong time."  ~The News in BooksReviews~
  
"The author did awonderful job of bringing out the humor in life. My favorite was the firststory about her dad who tried but didn't know how to do home repairs. This bookwill make you smile and even laugh. I will read more by this author." ~Haley, DRCPromotions Review Team~
