Book review of "3 mistakes in my life"

With huge expectations I grabbed the third book by the author Chethan Bhagat titled " The 3 mistakes in my life" within weeks of its release. Here is what I felt about it.

What I liked
  • The book is written in typical casual Chetan Bhagat style which makes the reading a wonderful experience.
  • The characters are next door characters to which we can easily relate.
  • The way Chetan describes certain events and characters is absolutely mouth watering. We somehow start aspiring if we could be there in that situation.
  • IT surely makes a compelling read. It is undoubtedly a book which cannot be put down before finishing.
Now to what I did not like

  • Just to sensationalize things certain characters and events have been penned. That looks amateurish.
  • It is like a typical bollywood movie with doses of romance,action,humour and even it has characters traveling abroad. It has long drawn action sequence as well.
  • The flow is not natural at places.
Overall, it surely is a good read but I found it to be no where near five point someone by the same author.
