    1. Avoid this book. Period. It's a sweetishly dull, predictable, all good vs all bad story.Before I rant some more, let me confess that my utter disappointment also stems from the high expectations I had from this book and author. The reasons being:-Dollar Bahu is one of the many acclaimed books from the award-winning celebrity author Sudha Murthy-This story was also made into a TV serial-Sudha Murthy's achievements as a young engineer at an all-male Tata factory is one of those popular inspiring f [...]


    2. its sadly true how Dollar Bahus steal the show by their cheap gimmicks and the dedicated ones are shunned. its a quick read more like our serials on TV.


    3. The story is simple but has realistic effect of how value for money than relations affects a family and how it can have its repercussions on relationshipsThe story starts with the POV of Chandru who loves Vinuta. But he decides to pursue his career when he goes America. He earns dollars and never bothers to tell Vinuta about his feelings. However when he decides to tell her it was already too late as she had already married Girish, a bank clerk, and coincidentally Chandru's brother. The story do [...]


    4. Candid and unembellished. Sudha murthy's writing comes straight from the heart ( not the brain, some might argue :) )It is worth the tiny quantum of time it takes to read through its 140 odd pages. Odd being the key word there!! Where some would say the book shows everything in plain black and white , I feel Sudha has done her job well by presenting raw facts in front of the readers and leaving the judgement in their hands. After all, different people give different weights to priorities in life [...]


    5. Very interesting insights into American and Indian culture, but it reads a little like a fable with a moral at the end.



    6. A quick and light read. The book synopsis gives you the story outline and the story flows as expected with no surprises, twists or impressive characterization. The message comes across but it would have been more interesting had there been some depth. With such an ordinary story at hand, the author could have afforded to break the stereotyped characters. I mean why should women, mother in laws in particular, should always be the ones proud about their children being abroad? Why not men, the fath [...]



    7. Depiction of Typical Scenario in most households -Having an NRI Bahu. But typically showing NRI Bahu in a negative shade and Indian Bahu in a goody role was predictable.


    8. I had gone to Sirsi in Karnataka to attend a wedding and borrowed Dollar Bahu by Sudha Murthy from the bride-to-be and could not keep it down till I finished it. I came back home and bought one for myself because I felt that I could read it again. The characters were very lifelike and this seems to be the story of every Indian house where the child who earns more is treated better then the one who earns comparatively less. It is the story of a middle class family headed by Shamanna, a Sanskrit t [...]


    9. This was a simple story but one that really touched me. The journey of a person who has escaped the grasps of severe poverty in her childhood is suddenly flooded with bundles of money when her eldest son finds a job in the U.S.A. That is why she holds him and him wife, the 'Dollar Bahu' is very high regard; neglecting her poor, hardworking younger daughter-in-law since she works as a teacher at a mere government school. Entranced by the charm of the U.S. dollar, the peace of mind of her family s [...]


    10. I was looking forward to this book but my enthusiasm dampened just 30 pages into the story.The simplicity of the language was agreeable but the plot is trite. A vicious mother-in-law, a submissive daughter-in-law with hints of spineless men scattered all over the plot were the recipe for the story. I was so desperate for a twist in the tale, in a bold sort of way, that I continued reading but all I got in the end was that the dollar – not greed, not inconsideration, not lack of self-respect or [...]


    11. Sudha Murty, one of my favorite writer, not one of, but the most favorite you can say.Her lucid and narrative way of writing fascinated me from the very beginning. I almost savored all her knitting and with a great satisfaction i can preclude that she can be truly a writer of all time and all generations, everyone can definitely appreciate and enjoy her writings. Dollar Bahu, is a fiction based on a simple and narrative story of a girl Vinuta, who is very honest in her approach, principled and m [...]


    12. This would probably be the first Sudha Murty book which lacked the enthusiasm that holds the content together. In fact, the content gets too cluttered, confusing and hurried up towards the end. True, the book more looked like a fable with only shades of black and white, leading to a conclusion left open-ended for the reader to cook up. The brief read would surely compel you to put it down after initial 50 pages giving in to the predictable end, but love for the author might drag you to the last [...]


    13. Dollar Bahu is a story about the 'Big American Dream' and its impact on Indian families. It could be the story of any average Indian middle class family and hence many people can relate to it. Sudha Murthy's simplistic presentation makes it even more relatable to the ordinary or occasional reader. All the characters are real and no wonder the story comes from Mrs. Murty, who, being associated with one of the big IT firms in India, must have closely observed numerous instances of the power of the [...]


    14. Simple way of writing A nice fable but most of the people, sentiment are a common occurrence in India. Gouramma is everywhere in India and there is nothing wrong in that. The people and sentiment of those from USA also resonate very well. As many Gouramma that many Jamuna


    15. The book could have been a 3 or 3.5 The story is realistic enough But a little too plainly good vs bad. I guess the point was driven across clearly but not a readers read and the irritating mother in law was too infuriating for me to appreciate the message of the book :D


    16. A quick & pleasant read!Book is also an eye opener especially for meThe best part of the book is its narration, keeping the story short, sweet & simple.Characters are well defined and maintained throughout the book.Best quote: Grass is always greener on the other side!


    17. Dollar Bahu By Sudha murthy is an amazing read it really connects you. The plot is interesting you will never feel bored or tired of reading it. The agony and pain of a wife, a sister in law and a man is portrayed very genuinely I personally loved this book for its simplicity and warmth.



    18. Very well written book.From an Indian perspective the pros and cons of living away from homeland in the US is very well brought out





    19. Dollar Bahu*, by Indian philanthropist Sudha Murty, is an engrossing story about how wealth and status changes the way people treat others. Vinuta, a young and beautiful teacher at a school, gets married to Girish, a clerk at a bank, and also the son of the Sanskrit teacher at her school. At first, Vinuta is comfortable at her new home, with a loving husband and wise father-in-law, though her sister-in-law and her mother-in-law, Gouramma, can be irritating sometimes. All seems well, until Giris [...]


    20. This review first appeared in satyasurya.wordpress/2010/ I read the book “Dollar Bahu” yesterday , and like the previous 3 books of Sudha Murty , I was able to complete it in a day. Rather I should say I was compelled to complete each of these books on the very day picked them. Sudha Murty’s works are always a pleasure to read, nice books with beautiful plot and strong messages. After reading “Gently falls the Bakula ” my expectation was that this book would also have some thing on rel [...]


    21. Introduction: I am sure if you will read one book of Sudha Murthy you will definitely going to read other books as well. This was my third book of Sudha Murthy. This book simply explores how human give importance to money but bot a human being.Plot summary: The story depicts a middle aged man named Shammanna who believes on moral and his wife Gouramma who is a homemaker and believes in lavish life. They have three children Chandru, Girish and Surabhi.Chandru who is an engineer went to Dharwad fo [...]


    22. कहा जाता है कि श्रीकृष्ण जी के मोहक मुरली-नाद से आकृष्ट होकर सभी गोपियाँ अपना काम अधूरा ही छोड़कर भागी-भागी आतीं थीं।उसी तरह अमेरिका दुनिया के सब राष्ट्रों को आवाज़ दे रहा है कि सारे बंधन तोड़ [...]


    23. "फार विचित्र आहे हा देश! ते एक रंगीबेरंगी कोळ्याचं जाळं आहे. तिथं नोकर्या आहेत, यंत्र-तंत्र आहे. सुख संपत्ती आहे, डॉलर्स आहेत. आपली माणसं त्यातल्या कशाला तरी बळी पडून तिथं येतात - पण माघारी जायल [...]


    24. This story revolves around a mother-in-law who wants everything but at the same time doesnt even want to lose anything.She has 2 sons, one of them a very simple guy who lives along with his parents and the other son who is so adored by his mother for fulfilling her wishes of having soemone from the family go and study abroad and earn money in dollars rather than Indian Rupees, So the simple guy gets married to a very beautiful yet simple girl who was previously been liked by the other brother be [...]
