This perfectly titled audiobook will immerse listeners in the misadventures of an Indian American family and have them rooting for each member to find happiness. The ensemble of narrators give flawless performances. Vikas Adam sprinkles a dash of humor into his expressive tones to portray the overbearing but oddly sympathetic father, Suresh, whose search for love after divorce takes an unlikely turn. Deepa Samuel captures ex-wife Lata's resentment over her lengthy arranged marriage, while conveying her joy at her new life. Their adult daughter Priya's affair with a married man is depicted with nuance by Mehr Dudeja. Shahjehan Khan's easygoing intonations help listeners invest in son Nikesh's struggle to settle his relationship with the mother of his son. M.J.
