A Laughter Riot through and through – Page 6 And Beyond: Let’s stir the pot…

A hilarious and refreshing read.

I am always delighted to read books from a different genre. It is very rare that a precious gem lands in my hands. And I’m lucky enough to say that Hureen Gandhi’s book is that precious gem.

Publication Date: October 1st, 2018

Publisher: Notion Press

Page Count: 283 pages

Opening Sentence: First thing first, to my friends and families: please don’t get misled.


In modern day America, amidst the contentious presidential election campaign of November 2016, immigrant author Hureen Saghar Gandhi finds that humor is the only way to keep her family and her friends’ spirits high. Living a fast and furious life in Northern Virginia, surrounded by quirky characters, she decides she has no choice but to weave them into her satirical anecdotes in her book: Page 6 And Beyond. This book will have you laughing out loud as she embarks on a spy mission to bond with long-lost childhood school friends on a sensational WhatsApp column; fulfill her bucket lists; chronicle encounters with her kids, and challenges; relate her childhood escapades; relive her misadventures in the Nordic region; and supply readers with extraordinary stories of her friends living in different continents.


When the Author Hureen approached me for her book ‘Page 6 And Beyond: Let’s stir the pot‘, I had never thought this to be a hilarious ride to the nostalgia lane kind of book.

The book ‘Page 6 And Beyond: Let’s stir the pot’ begins with a disclaimer Rating the book ‘PG 40’ (Don’t take the disclaimer seriously), and the way the characters were introduced, were show the setter. And the beginning of the book set the pace of the whole book.

Hureen’s first book is a hilarious sort-of memoir. It’s extremely funny with several laughs out loud lines and stories. Hureen’s book turned out to be light-hearted, big-hearted and funny. While it took me only 6 hours to finish, I’m happy and highly embarrassed to admit that it had me laughing out throughout.

So what’s to love about ‘Page 6 And Beyond: Let’s stir the pot…’, besides everything? For starters, how Hureen just narrates the story (and by the story, I mean everything from Creating a WhatsApp group to bring her widespread friends from around the world closer, to her trip to Burhanpur, India’s Venice) like it is. She’s got a strong funny bone in her, and you can feel it in your laughter. The book is a perfect blend of bubbly, snarky, honest, and sheer fun. And I really loved how the Author described each and every character, it had me in stitches.

The narration was exceptionally good. The story revolves around past and present in Hureen’s life, transitioning smoothly. This book is funny, of course. But it’s also candid and, at times, heartfelt. What I loved most about this book is Hureen’s voice can be heard through the whole thing. That’s not an easy thing for an author to do, but you feel as though Hureen is sitting right beside and narrating these stories to you personally

So yeah, it’s brilliant. It’s hilarious. JUST GO READ IT ALREADY! haha

I give it 5/5

About the Authors

Hureen Saghar Gandhi

Hureen Saghar Gandhi lives with her husband and their two wonderful daughters in Northern Virginia. She savors her ever-growing collection of memories from her travel escapades and meeting people all around the world. Her passion lies in capturing the moments (that may get lost in time) through her camera lens. And recently through her writing, she humorously brings to life her fond memories.

In the present day, she works as a stay-at-home mom, a professional photographer, and leads the Page 6 column in her school’s WhatsApp group of fifty-two classmates, all in that order, and don’t let the book mislead you otherwise. Her other talents extend to being a gardener, a chauffeur, a cook, a therapist, a preacher, a travel agent, a match-maker, and other wide-ranging skills that she keeps adding on with each passing day.

She claims to have discovered her funny bone when her kids were born. This was the only way she thought she could have survived to be a stay-at-home mom. However, the writing bug didn’t kick in until she started leading the Page 6 column in her WhatsApp school group. Page 6 And Beyond is the result of her ironic and funny observations of leading the PAge 6 column of her old school’s WhatsApp group. She further capitalizes on her life experiences ranging from her coming from a nuclear family into a joint family, living in three different continents – Asia, Europe and America, and the preachy ways of raising kids in a country different from her country of origin. Her writing explores her day-to-day encounters with various characters from all walks of life where their idiosyncrasies are playfully distilled into a comical brew.
