Been long since my last book review. So here I am today with a book which I finally got to read. This one it titled The Three Wise Monkeys by Jeet Gian.
The trio – Amar, Akbar and Anthony – had no clue whatsoever about their goddammit indecisive-careers-and-indefinite-struggles.
And that was because they were born with the Peter Pan Syndrome and were simple enough to be tricked by anyone, including their mystifying girlfriends – Meghna, Farah and Sarah.
And as is the fate of all morons, they were drawn into trouble – deep trouble – of hiding crores of rupees of black money in secret offshore companies.
Will their mistake of turning a blind eye to the philosophy of ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ cost them their careers and put them in prison?
Will Lady Luck change their fortunes forever?

The cover is quite an intriguing feature about the book. It kind of creates interest as to what the storyline could be. It has the comedy/humorous aspect visible on the cover itself. So when you pick it up you know what genre you’d be dealing with.
The characters are well crafted, their descriptions are clear and the storyline is different. But as an avid reader, I wasn’t able to keep my interest intact in the book. It really has the Bollywood kind of feel to it. The comedy and the dialogues are something we’d really enjoy watching on the screen. And that may just be more fun than reading the book.
The number of characters and the way they cross each other’s paths really give you a tinge of Comedy of Errors. The story has a lot of pun (seemingly intended) and lines that strike just at the point. The book also provided an insight view of the CAs and their ways of functioning. It shows the kind of corruption and the ways we try to twist things to escape. The friendship of the three men and their tryst with destiny is really a unique one.
Overall a good read, yet I’d say you may enjoy it if you really like reading a story on the Bollywood lines. I’d give this one a 3 star!
Till I pick up and read something else. Here’s wishing you all, on the occasion of the festivities around. Stay happy and blessed!
Lots of love and best wishes.
