The only regret I have is why didn't I read it earlier. When i started off reading it i got mixed. Jan 11, book review of chetan bhagat's book 3 mistakes of my life. work done by: Monik hirpara this book is all about friendship, lovestory, best.
It is against the protocol. Eventually, of course, Ish finds out, and sees it as the ultimate betrayal. It's not business as usual with the business, either. Govind has grand ambitions, but there are some forces that can overwhelm even the best laid plans. The triple-whammy that hits the three friends is a devastating earthquake, the attacks on New York and Washington D.
Among the side-adventures in the novel is a trip to Australia for cricket purposes, of course , and their host asks them what the national obsessions in India are: 'There's a lot of people.

And there's a lot of obsessions. That's the problem,' Ish said.
And them together, even bigger,' I added. Religion and politics and the tension they create figure prominently in the story.
Omi's family is politically involved, and militantly Hindu-nationalist; among their pet causes is the row over the temple at Ayodhya. Meanwhile, Ali's father is a sensible secular Muslim -- and neither the secular nor the Muslim identity find much favor among the militant Hindus.
There's too much of unnecessary emotion, unrealistic action and what's more we are supposed to believe that the book is based on a real story. The book is so contrived, melodramatic, unoriginal and boring that it reminded me of the bollywood flicks In this book, the author has put everything, which sells it in India-Cricket, religion,Communal riots,politics,love, aspirations, misery, sacrifice s ,the Earthquake in Gujarat etc etc but it is a poor mix of all these potentially winning ingredients.
Book Review: The 3 Mistakes of My Life by Chetan Bhagat
The book is so contrived, melodramatic, unoriginal and boring that it reminded me of the bollywood flicks. And i don't think there is any point talking about characterization.
There is hardly any. This book is supposed to inspire the youngistan's of Hindustan. If ever a day comes when i have to draw inspiration from Mr. Bhagat's books,then God save me.
Got it. Not all the books are meant to be intelligent and original. Some like this one are just meant to be page turners. But do i find it a quick read?
Yes, but still it is not a goodread but a painful one. So what are The 3 Mistakes of My Life?
Against my better Judgement, borrowing a Chetan Bhagat's book from my friend on his insistence. Reading the book. Bothering to write a review about this book. View all 7 comments. Mar 23, Archit Ojha rated it liked it Shelves: No doubt that his debut was gripping and the movie a phenomenal one. The second one dipped starkly in quality. This salvages his track record in the status quo. In my humble opinion, I will say that I am glad that he found his mojo back with the 3rd one.
Perhaps the best book of the author. The cricket backdrop amalgamated with the riots and the flurry of emotions pulsating between the trio of friends - well, yes it is quite a book! The character sketchup was lucid and the story moves with a great p No doubt that his debut was gripping and the movie a phenomenal one. The character sketchup was lucid and the story moves with a great pace. Ali is someone that ignites the melodramatic emotion needed to make it a hit.
The love affair like there always are.
The religious riots that are too perennial. Cricket is a religion in India.
Interlacing this all, Mr. Chetan Bhagat emerged with a nice one! Ah, well it is the perfect recipe for a bollywood flick. But that did disappoint on more than one level. Still I will remember this as a book and not as a script. View 1 comment. View all 11 comments. Dec 28, Deepak rated it did not like it. I definitely made a mistake reading this one.
The first book, "Five Point Someone" was pretty impressive, or so it seemed to me, owing to the fact that I am in the process of becoming an engineer so much for the illusion! Judging from the first two books, I did expect unrealistic twists, but this one has certainly superseded its Chetan Bhagat is back with his 3rd book, "The 3 Mistakes of My Life".
Judging from the first two books, I did expect unrealistic twists, but this one has certainly superseded its predecessors in terms of absurdity. Here are a few points which I would like to highlight: Bhagat makes it a point to include a love-making scene in each of his books. What are we supposed to draw from this? What's more, one can't digest the location of these scenes. With your professor's daughter in the professor's house or your best friend's sister on the terrace of the friend's house and this time, the friend is watching a cricket match downstairs plus the girl's parents are also in the house!
One finds it difficult to relate to the incidents as they occur throughout the book, especially the entire saga of happenings that takes the three friends and the twelve-year old 'gifted' cricketer Ali to Australia. It seems all too weird on part of the protagonist to make a suicide attempt three years after the actual drama is over. And still more eccentric to have e-mailed his suicide note to Chetan Bhagat!
Lastly, what the protagonist admits were his mistakes, hardly seem to be mistakes at all. The Bhuj Earthquake destroying his store was not a mistake. And sleeping with his best friend's sister - well I don't know That's all I remember right now. View all 3 comments. Jul 03, Anupama K. Mazumder rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I have just finished reading the book, and am still overwhelmed by it. I love Chetan Bhagat's ability to connect with his reader, his simple language flow just grips you I found his choice of women to be of just one type Neha of Five Point Someone and Vidya of this book are exactly similar.
The hero is always in a group of 3 friends One more point I would like to add. The mistakes the narrator talks about are not really such big ones.
Anyone would act the same way he did in his situation. I could sympathize with the character fully.
Sep 27, Samir Dhond rated it did not like it. One of the most disappointing authors and of course, the book is trash. I just do not like Chetan Bhagat's writing. The lesser said, the better. Jun 04, Rhea rated it did not like it. The 3 Mistakes of MY Life: View 2 comments.
Dec 13, Ankit Agrawal rated it did not like it. A lot of hype is there about Chetan Bhagat and his books. But I would say Chetan Bhagat is no writer.
He doesn't know to write properly. Books beginning are great, character introduction is awesome but, story is funny and seems to be good but the end is so pathetic and senseless that it leads nowhere and ruins the whole interest.
As far as this book is concerned I think it was a waste of money for me. Some areas of the book are so senseless and nowhere related to real life.
Its like paying Rs. I always heard good Chetan Bhagat but I have not been impressed by any one of his books and 3 Mistakes of My Life is the worst of them all. For a writer who has written his 3rd book it is really pity on him to write a book like this. Simply Waste of Money and Time for the readers I would say. Sep 14, Rishab Arora rated it did not like it. Jun 26, Rhea Routray added it Shelves: All right.
This one review, then it's over.
I would never commit mistakes like Chetan Bhagat. This one would be a jewel in my shelf of Epitome Of Bad Writing. Okay, I would have given it 0 stars out of five, but Goodreads doesn't allow me that.
So I better chose to be content with one star. Well, let's not mess with the thing. The biggest mistake of Chetan Bhagat: Bad plot, poorly developed characters, unpredictable moods, and that thing I think was very exaggerated: Look, I am just 14, so I don't have want to say about the things written in this, what do I say, trash.
I have said this and would say it again: I hate Chetan Bhagat. So please. I am going to write some crap from this book trash. And I don't want to call them spoilers although i have hidden them for the self proclaimed Chetan Bhagat fans who haven't read the book because nothing can spoil an already spoiled book trash. I noticed her dress. She wore a new purple and white bandhini salwar kameez today.
Her necklace had a purple teardrop pendant and matching earrings.
She had freshly bathed. Her hair smelt of a little bit of Dettol soap and well, her. Every girl has a wonderful smell right after bath.
I think they should bottle and sell it. I was rolling my eyes when I read this one. The voice inside my head resounded once again, I hate Chetan Bhagat. I am not interested in knowing how that half headed girl looked, what she wore that day, how her hair smelt, how she had matched her dress with purple teardrop pendant and matching earrings.
I have to do my little brother's homework, and many more things that are more important than reading and whining about this book. I just have one advice: If you want to save your time, and money. And once again, I Hate Chetan Bhagat. May 29, Sandhya rated it it was ok. The best selling feature of a Chetan Bhagat book is its readability. In a world where one is constantly striving to find time, it truly matters when you can actually finish reading a book withen a couple of hours.
Also, when he isn't getting too filmy and over-the-top, Chetan actually manages to hold a story well enough. The former especially works as an excellent satire on the education system I thought. Chetan's third The best selling feature of a Chetan Bhagat book is its readability. Chetan's third book, the just-launched Three Mistakes Of My Life starts off in the same effective manner as his earlier two books, but unlike the other two, this one starts to appear too far-fetched towards the middle and then just irrevocably falls apart in the end.
The story recounts the life of three youths, Omi, Ishaan and Govind trying to make a life staying in small-town Gujarat. Given Govind's business acumin and Ishaan's love for cricket, the youngsters decide to open a shop that sells cricket goods. Omi's family helps them to get a rented place outside a temple, and soon enough the place is a hit with the locals. Chetan's biggest strength as a writer is his ability to create interesting settings and situations.
And that's true of his latest book too. Moving on, Ishan takes a great liking to one of the local Muslim boys, Ali with a 'magical' ability to smash the ball for a six each time. Living with the regret of making it himself, Ishan decides to train the year old. Strangely, the lad himself is least interested in cricket but Ishan and his friends take it upon themselves to not only train him free, but even endure great pains to take him all the way to Sydney at the suggestion of one of the Australian players.
There, Ali is offered a contract on the condition that he become an Australian national only to have the year-old spout dramatic lines such as, 'Does that mean I cannot play for India?! Then I don't want it! This is where the novel begins to disintegrate and goes on to become embarrasingly over-the-top and melodramatic.
As long as the author only incorporates the Gujarat earthquake and how it brings down the hopes of one of the novel's lead character, Govind -- Chetan's attempt at infusing a natural disaster with the personal is acceptable.
The 3 Mistakes of My Life
But it's hardly likely that both the Godhra episode and the following riots would again have a direct bearing on these very characters. The last few chapters especially go out of hand.
One knows Chetan's a big fan of Bollywood and believes that much like a Hindi film that must have action in the end, a novel too must have its share of blood and gore to make it wholesome enough.
First of all, Bollywood itself is moving away from formulaic fares so Chetan's jumped in a bit late here. Secondly, there is no emotional resonance or reasoning to any of the violence that takes place in the temple, with the Hindus trying to attack Ali with Ishan and others trying to save him. It's never clear why these youths are fussing over Ali so much. There's only one explanation given - that he's gifted.
Why would anyone in their right mind take him all the way to Australia or give up their life yes, one of the youngsters dies trying to protect the boy! Full Name Comment goes here.

Comments 1. The Three Mistakes of my Life is, for the most part, young-lad-lit, a YA novel content with limited ambitions, trying to convey some sincere messages but entirely lacking in subtlety or finesse.
