Review: The Three Wise Monkeys

Author: Jeet Gian
Genre: General Fiction
Rating: đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«


The trio—Amar, Akbar, and Anthony—had no clue whatsoever about their goddammit indecisive-careers-and-indefinite-struggles.

And that was because they were born with the Peter Pan Syndrome and were simple enough to be tricked by anyone, including their mystifying girlfriends—Meghna, Farah, and Sarah. And as is the fate of all morons, they were drawn into
trouble—deep trouble—of hiding crores of rupees of black money in secret offshore companies.

Will their mistake of turning a blind eye to the philosophy of ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ cost them their careers and put them in prison?
Will Lady Luck change their fortunes forever?

Cover Review: 

The cover depicts the three wise monkeys with all their apparels, consisting of guns and gold and stuff. The cover is quite colorful and contrasts nicely with the title.

Book Review:

The Three Wise Monkeys centers around the topic of black money and how all sections of the economy are busy in hoarding it. It depicts the struggle of the three monkeys a.k.a Amar, Akbar and Anthony, who try to stay honest and ethical in their work, but then have to choose between money and ethics...Of course, it's easy to guess what they choose...

The writing style of the novel is very simple, and yet interesting. Not being a commerce student myself, I found some parts and words that I couldn't understand and wished that the author had written it a little more in layman's terms.

Another thing-that bugged me- I noticed is that the author makes a lot of comparisons. It's okay upto an extent, but 2 comparisons per page gets tiring.

Other than those few minor things, the dialogues are full of jokes, sometimes funny and others not so much. 

All in all, it was an interesting and entertaining read and despite it's faults I still enjoyed it!
