In the middle of my P.L(holidays that one gets before the exams) I get a call from my friend asking if I had purchased this particular book and if it were available around my place...There were apparently no Quality book stores in kurla where he lived (Surprising) ...No I don't have it,I said and I don't intend to buy it either...I am in the middle of my Exams dude ...Let's see, may be in june ....I can't wait to get my hands on it,he said ....Well I was glad that I had'nt Purchased it then ....I would have made a "MISTAKE" if I had :P
Ok, I have to confess that I am not a voracious Book Reader but I think Chetan Bhagat's Third Book is Average to say the Least...His Last book One NIght @ a call centre, if you ask me was a very Over-hyped Book ...It did'nt make an Impression at all...Clearly Five Point Someone is the best of them all...In this Book Religion,Riots,Earthquake...All the Ingredients seem to have been packed in,but it does lack in somewhere ...Probably another reason I did'nt like it was because I had read The kite Runner before reading this one which I wanted to read for such a long time ,but could'nt get my hands on it for some odd reason ...even if you see, The Kite Runner also Involves Afganisthan and the Taliban issues but it has a soul in it ...The relationship between the protagonist and the boy has been depicted so beautifully that it overshadows all the other happenings in the book..Sadly the three mistakes does'nt do that
A Special Mention of the Climax of this book : Well it seems A film is gonna be made on Five Point Someone by Raj Kumar Hirani...Well I guess Raj Kumar Hirani must have called Chetan Bhagat when he was approaching the end part of this book ....It comes Straight out of a climax action Sequence of a hindi Movie Flick ...One of the reasons why chetan bhagat has become so popular is because he connects with "Indian" style of reading or writing...And that am not sure is a good thing because then the Next Genaration is only going to read or write like him....The Friend that gave me a call that day is'nt a voracious Book reader like me but he only seems to read Chetan Bhagat which I think is a "BIG MISTAKE" !!!!
Hopefully he comes up with a good fourth book and does'nt make a Third Mistake Third,coz his First was'nt :)
