    Description

    The 3 Mistakes Of My Life is a book that revolves around three young lads and their ambitions in life, as well as the events that pose a threat to their relationship with each other.

    Summary Of The Book

    The 3 Mistakes Of My Life revolves around Govind, Omi, and Ishaan. Although they have different personalities, their love for cricket unites them. They decide to start a shop that sells cricket-related items. Omi’s father is a priest at the temple, and has a great deal of influence there. They then decide to launch their shop in the commercial premises of the temple. Among the three, Govind is the most business minded, as he and his mother were left to fend for themselves when his father left them. He desires to become rich, and also attributes his business-mindedness to the fact that he’s a Gujarati, who are known for good trading.

    Ishaan is the most fond of playing cricket, and decides to help a young boy who wants to land a spot in the Indian Cricket Team. Ishaan’s sister, Vidya, is determined towards making something of herself, as she’s tired of their financial status. She is currently gearing up for her medical entrance tests. However, she is weak in mathematics. Ishaan requests Govind to tutor his sister, as Govind is good at math. However, as time passes by, the two fall in love and try their best to hide it from everyone, especially Ishaan.

    The three are very close to each other. Things take a turn with the horrendous earthquake in Gujarat, the Godhra incident, and the riots that followed. This book revolves around the three mistakes made by these young lads, what they are, and the way it alters the course of their lives and that of those around them. The 3 Mistakes Of My Life was greatly appreciated by its readers, and was adapted into a movie titled Kai Po Che!, which was released in 2013.

    A good value for money book - Buying it will NOT be a mistake of your life

    When i read other reviews about this book and also enquired with my friends, they were not very happy about this book but when i read this book i felt the same language which we are used to from Chtan's books, yes it is no where near to his works like "Five Point someone" or "2 States" but it isnt bad either, the way he gives background to each character and ties up all the loose ends together is what i like in this book as well, it also touches a few sensitive aspects of Gujrat but also expl...

    A good sleeping pills from Chetan Bhagat

    Opting to read this book, trusting the author Chetan Bhagat was one of "My Mistakes in Life" !
    I waited and waited, slept a number of times over the book, hoping that there will be a better turning around !!
    Boring, Tiring... unable to express my disappointment !

    Bhagat's Worst!

    Even considering that Chetan Bhagat is not a great artistic writer, but is a author who appeases the masses, this book touches the lowest depths of literary mediocrity. The book starts promisingly but then veers towards the plot towards plain stupidity and at times makes B-grade bollywood movie plots look better!
    This is certainly not what one would expect from the writer of a cult book like the 'Five Mistakes Of my Life'. This book was certainly a blunder in Bhagat's repertoire !

    Very good read...

    I finished this book in a week. I started reading this book with slow pace. But as I finished reading up to 10 chapters I could not resist the temptation to finish. it It's a very good story about a person who wants to be successful in business and how his life takes unexpected turns...I particularly like the last 5 chapters which have many twists...Overall excellent read...

    Pathetic...

    I had really liked 5 point someone and Two states from Chetan Bhagat.. But this book is nothing close.. it even has a lot of grammar mistakes throughout..
    The characters in the book are not people I would like to relate to either.. and random stuff keeps happening without much sense at times..
    Just wanted to finish off this book quickly so that i could get on to the next one.. which i could, thanks to its small size..
    I regret buying this one..

    The three mistakes of my life

    Unfortunately and sadly, the FOURTH mistake of his life.

    A very very disappointing book.
    Over hyped and overrated.


    Chetan Bhagat can do much much better than that. Too many expectations from him.
    :)

    chetan bhagat should stop writing

    only mistake of mine was to read it .i believe that chetan bhagat should stop writing n star doing some spritual work n put an effort to achieve purity of mind,because its better for a guy to buy alcohol than to buy his book.

    Buying it is a MISTAKE!

    I expected a lot from this one, but a sheer DISAPPOINTMENT is what I get in the end. I didn't expect this one to be more like a 'bollywood-masala' movie going on. Romance, Religious-riots, Cricket, Drama, it all seems like a boring crap going on.

    Not so up to Chetan's level

    First book of [author:Chetan Bhagat|61124]'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)...
