What other bonds do they share, and how are they revealed? Dec 29, Nikhilesh rated it did not like it.
Almost Single is singularly awful: The book has no perspective to offer about urban working women. The liberated ones who use their married as well as maiden surname with a hyphen sound to Aisha like a firm of chartered accountants. Written by Aingle Jhamb.

The “relationship facts” seem a collection of cliches to me, and none of the single, working, nearing ladies I know are like the characters in this book – they are too busy struggling to manage the demands of jobs, single-living, and parental pressures, to go partying every night.
