The book: Soldier & Spice: An Army Wife’s Life by Aditi Kumar Mathur



The gist
: A working Delhi girl gets married to an army officer. This is her take on the fauji life


One-line review
: Fun and quite funny, Mathur’s got most facts right (I know because I am a fauji brat)

Read it if you like: The self-deprecating humour in Bridget Jones’s Diary

But caution: The writer seems too starry-eyed (that’s possibly because she isn’t a fauji brat herself)

The best line: Apparently officers are not ‘men’. Officers are ‘officers’
