In One Day We'll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter, Scaachi Koul deploys her razor-sharp humor to share all the fears, outrages, and mortifying moments of her life. She learned from an early age what made her miserable, and for Scaachi anything can be cause for despair, whether it's a shopping trip gone awry, enduring awkward conversations with her bikini waxer, overcoming her fear of flying while vacationing halfway around the world, dealing with Internet trolls, or navigating the fears and anxieties of her parents.
Alongside these personal stories are pointed observations about life as a woman of color: where every aspect of her appearance is open for critique, derision, or outright scorn; where strict gender rules bind in both Western and Indian cultures, leaving little room for a woman not solely focused on marriage and children to have a career (and a life) for herself.
With a sharp eye and biting wit, incomparable rising star and cultural observer Scaachi Koul offers a hilarious, scathing, and honest look at modern life.

So here's the thing...
Overall, it's a great story; it really opened my eyes to prejudices I never gave much thought to. Being the daughter of immigrants and also having immigrated to North America from overseas, I could also relate to some experiences and thoughts. HOWEVER, Scaachi's voice was so dull and monotone that, were the story uninteresting, I would've returned it. Memoirs don't need to be read in such a dull manner -- listen to Kevin Hart's for inspiration.
