The 3 Mistakes, is a book which has left a strong impact for sure. Nov 19, Santhosh rated it did not like it. I had typed up this nice little post on how this book was the 3rd mistake of my life, Chetan's other 2 books being the first two.
And then I realized every Amar, Akbar, Antony and their uncle had come up with the same idea. There is this line in the book: He had charisma and lunacy at the same time". This pretty much sums up the book for me as well. The grammar is crap, the plotline is nonexistent, you can write down a list of THE top filmi fundaa I had typed up this nice little post on how this book was the 3rd mistake of my life, Chetan's other 2 books being the first two.
The grammar is crap, the plotline is nonexistent, you can write down a list of THE top filmi fundaas and keep ticking them off one by one by one, and above everything Chetan doesn't know shit about cricket.
And yet you'll read it through, because it's about a world that you exist in. As with the other 2 books, Chetan comes across really well in the way he puts across what you do everyday - like what a typical 20 something would think when he's asked to stay for dinner at a friend's or how an 8yr old would behave in a cricket shop.
Like an algebra problem. It takes a few steps to get them to the point". The one thing the book could have definitely done with though is some good editing.
There are just too many anachronisms, mis-facts and fantasies in general - Aussies unbeatable in , metallica tees and incessant sms's in 90's India, "that South Indian opener Ramesh 'replaced' by Laxman in the second innings" in the Kolkata Test, taking khakras into Australia without a mention of customs Oh and hire someone who's finished 4th grade grammar while at it.
The story? It's about three yr old Hindu boys - Govind, Ishaan and Omi- opening a cricket shop in their neighbourhood along with some math and cricket coaching. The environment is a religiously and politically tense Ahmedabad. They mentor a Muslim boy Ali, a 'national treasure' who can hit any ball for 6 due to extraordinary reflexes. The Hindu-Muslim riots crash their world and the three try saving the boy from Hindu fanatics baying for his blood.
Add some 'original' content now and then - like Govind and best-friend Ishaan's sister Vidya falling in love, the Gujarat earthquake destroying their investments in a new mall, Hindutva party meetings, an Australian academy sponsored trip to Australia based on just 3 balls bowled to Ali , Govind realising his love for Vidya when he's away and is surrounded by beach babes, Omi coming in between Ali and a trisool thrust by his own father and dying, Ali taking down the last baddie by hitting the cricket ball precisely on his forehead, best-friends Govind and Ishaan dividing their shop into two halves with a divider right down the middle, and finally Govind attempting suicide.
Also throw in some passages on things that an everyday small-town school-going kid would relate to - math tuitions, tennis balls, how parents spend time and money only if it's related to studies, how nobody is allowed to follow their passions, how Australia with a population of 20 million should lose every cricket match to India's blue billion - and you have a potential bestseller. A decent read if you liked the other two.
Not great literature by any stretch but definitely captivating in parts. Did anyone else also keep waiting for handsome, blond, Aussie, "Pace mate" fast bowler Fred Li to turn out to be Brett Lee? Aug 27, Jennifer Jacobs rated it liked it Shelves: My least fav CB book!
A big letdown after 1 night at the Call center! Book had some highlights though,I after all lived through many events in this book myself like and ,that Oz India series and all. But I dunno,I just didn't like the storyline that much! Romance didn't click much either. That tour of Australia was completely out of place and not at all necessary!
Main character,a typical Gujarat Bania stereotype was okay,not great tho Girl was okay too,I liked the heroines in his 1st 2 novels My least fav CB book! Main character,a typical Gujarat Bania stereotype was okay,not great tho Girl was okay too,I liked the heroines in his 1st 2 novels much better and 2 states was the best ever Plot was so so overall just 1 star Ever read about the infinte monkey theorem? If you haven't, It says that if an an infinite number of chimpanzees were set to type at an infinte number of typewriters they will almost surely type anything, such as the complete works of Shakespeare.
Sadly,the same cannot be said for the bard Bhagat,as his works are so brilliant in their shittiness,they should probably be declared a marvel of quantum mechanics. The story Quite simply, Three guys download a cricket store. It collapses in an earthquake. Boo hoo. Writing The writing is truly divine. The lovemaking scenes beneath the "tanki" have been written with such eloquence and grace that George RR Martin allegedly shed a single tear while reading this masterpiece. He has decided he will quit writing since he obviously can never hope to match the standard set by Bhagat.
Seriously though,you will probably find better writing in my passionate essay "Why girls are icky" written in the third grade.
Bhagat, for the love of humanity,call this farce off,write an apology note,and get a job. I doubt he would though. He probably cannot spell apology. Dec 29, Saritha rated it it was ok. I'm not a major fan of Chetan Bhagat, but I had to read this book because there's a movie being made, based on it.
But I can begin to see why Bhagat is so popular. It's written for easy transition into screenplay. Hopefully, I'll like the movie, Kai Po Che, better - the casting is perfect going by early reports This story has three very distinct characters, perhaps a little unidimensional Govind is the businessman type, Omi is the god fearing type and Ish is the cricket-crazy one. Omi, in par I'm not a major fan of Chetan Bhagat, but I had to read this book because there's a movie being made, based on it.
Omi, in particular, seems least defined, although he does play a major part in the way things pan out finally. His transformation in the way he regards his uncle is too soon, too quick and since the story is from Govind's point of view, not quite given the breathing space that it could have had. The last section is breathless, racy and efficient but I would have liked some more depth.
Would have loved the book to have been a little longer.
But yes, there are insights that I loved, but not enough to make me pick up another Bhagat. Unless, of course, there's a movie in the offing. Apr 13, Navdha rated it did not like it Shelves: Why even bother with this book? Why even tell us a story which sounded like the script of a bad Bollywood movie?
I mean, the title makes you actually worked up thinking what those colossal mistakes would be? Doesn't it? But after you're done with, forget the feeling of disappointment, but think about feelings of complete frustration.
Why you might ask? Because you'd be frustrated at yourself for giving this book the time that it didn't deserve. Just watch another movie, where a guy wants to star Why even bother with this book?
Just watch another movie, where a guy wants to start his business and not do college, because he wants to follow his dreams. He works hard and earns enough money to download a decent shop space but because his luck is all fucked up, an earthquake crushes all his dreams in the debris.

Then I don't really remember what happens cause it isn't too significant but he falls hard for his best friend's sister whom he tutors. Just ugh!
Downright, clicje and boring. It's supposed to be bro-code among guys that their sisters will not come under the evil crutches of their guy buddies. So when the protagonist does just that and goes out of the way to hide it from his best friend, you know their friendship is going to be doomed.
Cliche alert: Best diaper buddies losing their forever friendship because of a girl. Ahem, and they also have sex during the so called math or whatever tuition classes, when the so-called best friend is right outside the other side of the wall!
Oh the girl was tutored alright. Just not the way her big brother wanted her to be. So in the end, some messed up shit happens. If I recall correctly some kinda riot.
Oh did I forget to mention about a kid who is trained in cricket by another friend of the protagonist? His story is what you call a story to tell. So I guess this kid also got involved in the religious riot and then in the middle of all that crisis, the best friend finds out about his sister and the serpent.
He then punches him and then there are some words said and then the guy commits a suicide.
The 3 Mistakes of My Life
Tries to commit a suicide. Doesn't die. And the story ends. Oh and what happened to the kid?
I don't remember. Feb 10, Nemo rated it it was ok. After reading it, I would not advise anyone to read it. WOW, is that his first mistake, I thought, Gmail doesn't allow underscores, when will he learn. Anyways, I continue to read it, and marvel the way the number 3 crops up again and again in the book: Anyways, the book lacks a single plot line. It doesn't at all appeal to me at any point. Its just the story of one boy, sometimes interesting, but mostly you would bang your head to the book, and think: Overall the book feels incomplete in a way, I don't expect after 2 books.
I am no fan of him, but i expect something more from the alleged "Best selling Indian Author" as said by New York Times. Beautiful story. This book is quite similar to Revolution Govind is so perceptive and focused.
Ish has a intrepid personality though he is a bit fierce occasionally. But I wish he was a bit more considerate about their future. Omi was a good friend regardless of his vapid behavior. What happened with Omi was despairing.
His tragic demise was unexpected. Therewithal everything they did to support Ali was fascinating. To have a selfless mentor like Ish is a blessing. Plus they rushed in to decisions too fast. Ending was good: May 31, Sundeep Supertramp rated it it was ok.
First book of Chetan Bhagat 's which I felt boring The prologue of the book was so interesting and I couldn't control from completing the book in 2 days ya, it is a fast read for me.. But after reading this book, I felt the fourth mistake is me reading this book.
It was so boring. But, the book was not so bad. The story had more twists then any B-grade Bollywood movie.. Not so up to Chetan's level ya, he has some level in my view Sep 19, Mohit rated it did not like it. I have read five point someone. It was a ok type.
But this book is total waste of time. I don't know about Chetan, but reading this book was definitely the biggest mistake of my my life. Dec 22, Akshat Solanki rated it liked it. After reading the previous reviews, I understood a fact that Goodreaders don't like CB more than 2 stars.
Hahaha, it's a true fact. I justify 3 stars for this book in the following manner. The movie was good, I watched the movie solely for the reason I liked this book. It could have got better by cutting the useless After reading the previous reviews, I understood a fact that Goodreaders don't like CB more than 2 stars. It could have got better by cutting the useless scene with Ishan's sister. Sep 01, Rajashekar rated it really liked it Recommends it for: At first, I would like name the Main characters which this novel contained of.
The Narrator of the story is govind, Vidya who is lover of him and sister of Ishaan who gives up his entire career only for cricket and OMI the son of the Priest in Nana Park Temple, also best friend of both of them. And a child character which turns story into different twists is ALI. Bittoo mama and Parekhji psychos of religion. Coming to Govind patel, he is a great businessman who converts every incident to mathematical terms.
He loves business and wants to earn crores of money through. For that he approaches his Ishaan and friends to be his partners. They agree with him and start a cricket business. As he thought, everything comes to him. You could experiment like this with different parts. Whatever impacts you most — not intellectually — when you read a certain thing, maybe you have goose pimples on your body — take that part and read it a few times. Keep it in your mind.
Ask someone else who has not read the book to hold the book between their hands and just sit. They may be able to just repeat the passage that you read without opening the book, because certain parts of the book are like a yantra. Many books are made like this to some extent.

(3 Mistakes Of My Life) (Gujarati Edition) By (Chetan Bhagat)
He is the narrator of this story and the one who makes the titular "Three Mistakes". During the course of the story he falls in love with Vidya, Ishan's younger sister for whom he is a private tutor.
Govind is the one who looks after the financial part of the business as he has good business sense and mathematical skills. Ishaan Ish: He is a big cricket freak and also a patriot at heart. Ishaan has been the best cricketer in his locality and school. He suggests the name of their business as "Team India Cricket Shop".
He helps Govind's business by organising daily cricket coaching camps. He has a younger sister, Vidya, about whom he is quite protective. When he discovers that a boy named Ali is a very talented batsman, he decides to go any length to give Ali proper training. Ishaan usually looks after day-to-day shop activities as he has genuine interest in anything cricket-related.
His family enjoys great respect among the people. Through Omi's parents and maternal uncle who own few shops as a part of the temple trust property , they readily get a place to start their business. He is a rather dumb boy and has not many dreams, but likes to concentrate on having a healthy body.And his mastery over language was such that he wrote it in the form of formulas, in such a way that no scholar would ever be interested in it.
This salvages his track record in the status quo. It was so boring. Hopefully, I'll like the movie, Kai Po Che, better - the casting is perfect going by early reports This story has three very distinct characters, perhaps a little unidimensional Govind is the businessman type, Omi is the god fearing type and Ish is the cricket-crazy one.
Some of my favorite business quotes come straight from Napoleon Hill. He is the maternal uncle of Omi. He helps Govind's business by organising daily cricket coaching camps. Bothering to write a review about this book. I have read five point someone. I have to do my little brother's homework, and many more things that are more important than reading and whining about this book.
