I just don t know about this one I get what the author was going for, the whole spiritual journey letting go enlightenment shebang, but wow what a disjointed downer And for some odd reason this book kept reminding me of Good in Bed and I ve decided there should be a sub class of books, REALLY fiction Not to be confused with Mom Fiction, REALLY fiction are books where the plot just keeps spiralling down until you find yourself saying, Really, insert author s name here , was that necessary

The character is well written and her plight sympathetic but the bizarre series of events that makes up the plot is one big pile of WTF.
When a lady commented to Lucky Boyce, You are lucky today, you escaped miraculously Lucky simply said I am Lucky Everyday Can a name make you luckier than others What we get to see of Lucky s life can never be called a lucky existence As an outcome of her bitter divorce she was forced to flee from Mumbai to New York leaving behind a trail of bitter memories a business which she had nurtured with her sweat blood She tries to start afresh in New York and starts teaching Yoga to prison inmates but [...]

Lucky Everyday is a philosophical novel about the crooked path toward spiritual enlightenment The novel begins with Lucky volunteering to teach yoga at a men s prison In a swift move backward in time, the reader learns about Lucky s previous relationship with a pseudo boyfriend, Amay, whom she wishes she had married and her disastrous marriage to Viki, the glamorous businessman who wanted a traditional wife that Lucky ever would be.In a series of seemingly random yet intricately interwoven even [...]
What was it Chick lit about divorcee who rebuilds her life after her crappy marriage falls apart Sort of, only in this case Viki got India and Lucky was exiled to the US I ve heard of custody battles but this is ridiculous Or maybe it was a book about finding enlightenment through yoga and a lot of misery There was mystery Mystery and suspense, also some courtroom drama Lucky Everyday hit all these genres I DID like it, but every once in a while I got whiplash when the plot style changed directi [...]
Enjoyed the book very much I liked reading about the Indian culture Asia and how the women there have the same ambitions, wants and needs as we do in the US One of my favorite parts was reading how the main charachter dealt with her emotions around abortion She was asked at the end of the book if she was worried about what people would say adding that the character had an abortion and she said that in India society does not make it their business, it is unspoken that what is chosen for themselve [...]
I enjoyed the story, but I m guessing the author s first language isn t English because while the story plot ideas thoughts were great the writing lacked depth and creativity and it read like the first draft of what with better writing and flushed out scenes could have been exciting, even gripping But instead it didn t make much of an impact But while the writing style annoyed me, the story held my interest.
Maybe I m just in the wrong mood to read this book, but I saw nothing new or insightful about it I actually gave up after about 50 pages life is way too short to read books that don t capture my attention by then I didn t care about Lucky, or her yoga class, or her failed marriage So much of this is subject matter that has been written about over and over again that to make it worth reading, it has to be fresh and add something I just didn t get that from this book.
Really was entertained and read to finish upto 3 am I also enjoyed the yoga bits and since I do yoga it is so motivating to read the effects Lucky could not have been so successful without a strong body that yoga provided her with Overall I am so impressed at the way my attention was rapt and such an unusual book
Wow, this book will give chartered accountants a whole new profile Competently written, the most interesting parts of the novel examine the culture clash between india and America Alas, the author seems keen to burden her heroine, Lucky, with as many calamities as possible, coming up trumps pretty well all the time.I wonder how difficult it is to get into an accountancy course
This is an amazing insight into looking beyond the controlling circumstances to see the view from the mountaintop and change directions Spirituality has many faces but its effect is the same a liberation from the bindings, release of energy and potential The story here is intriguing and I just could not put the book down but the lessons hit home
I never would have picked up this book if I had not seen it recommended on the Bikramyoga website Initially I thought it was a marketing scam, but the book was actually very good I particularly enjoyed the ending
I liked it Having worked with D.O.C and a yoga enthusiast the references were sometimes off but it was still enjoyable I didn t care for the affair and I m really confused by the ending Did she live Did she die I can t tell.
Truly worth the 99 cents I paid for this book on clearance I was surprised how easily I was able to get into this story of a women whose life has been been through the wringer and back again Her strength was inspiring I would def suggest it to friends
This was a very good, light reading kind of book I have been studying world religions this semester, and Lucky is Buddhist, so it was nice to read about her meditation and beliefs The ending was a little dry, but supposedly there s a sequel coming.
I have really mixed feelings about this book The writing is nice and I like the characters, but at a certain point the amount of awful crap happening to this intelligent, hardworking, kind woman starts to feel too unrealistic, yet it s still utterly depressing.
I read this book when I was taking a lot of yoga classes It was a good book but kind of hard to get into and a tad far fetched.
interesting view from an Indian born English writer, with cultural twists nice plot and easy read
Enjoyable and could not put it down Great and entertaining
I can t believe I finished this book It was like a bad accident that you can t look away from.
Surprised at the ending and lesson
This is a not to be missed novel I enjoyed the characterization and the plot that kept me up late in the nigh till I turned the last page One of those books I will refer too always
I came across this book at the local library and I really enjoyed it.
INSPIRING and AMAZINGA novel not to be missed
Fabulous read Really inspires the female spirit and the need to never give up, no matter what life throws your way
I was gripped by the journey that Lucky endured I loved the ending which made me contemplate As a student of yoga this book was inspiring I look forward to readings by this author.
This was a great book I especially loved the ending it reallyallowed me to use my imagination about what happened to the maincharacter Great read
I really enjoyed this She definitely is not the Luckiest of people but that is life Which is part of the point Very good read
