The Three Mistakes of my Life
"The Three Mistakes of my Life" is the third novel from India's new reading sensation Chetan Bhagat and to me his best effort. Bhagat needs a special mention for making India read like never before.
In his new novel Bhagat follows his usual racy style of story telling. It keeps you engaged and you feel like finishing of the novel in a few sittings.
This time Bhagat has broaden his horizons and tackles socially relevant issues. The plot is based in Gujrat (the state in India which was in the news for all the wrong reasons in 2002) and revolves around the lives of three friends. How they build their own business and how India's national obsession (read cricket) changes them as individuals is the central theme of the novel.
Bhagat is getting better with every novel. "The Three Mistakes..." like his previous novels brings joy to reading. And that is Bhagat's biggest strength!
