Not a Great Book
Apr 08, 2014 11:34 AM 24272 Views



The story revolves around three students at IIT. Alok, Hari and Ryan. They are thick friends, but do not have any common attributes. Each character is different, have different objectives and strengths and weakness. The story is told mainly by the POV of Hari and it narrates their four years in IIT and how they overcome their weakness and obstacles but still stick together and graduate from IIT.

I just wanted to read the novel to see what similarities it has with the movie 3 idiots. It seems that around 20% of the book has been used in the movie. It is sad to see the Director not giving credit to the author in the movie. :( It is not a very serious novel, but is very fast paced. I finished it in 2 hours. It is a light read, without any boring details, which just makes you retrospect on your college days memories. I liked the characters and the narrative and some light humor tags itself along the way. There is not much in terms of the plot, if you are looking for it. Overall, I would give it a 3/5.

Verdict: A good read especially, if you have been a college graduate at some part of your life and want to cherish the memories. If you are a serious fiction aficionado, then this book is not for you.
