The Three wise Monkeys by Jeet Gian - Guest Review by Samprikta

Modern Indian literature seems to be still stuck in the romantic yet typically humorous genre of writing. Jeet Gian decided to step out of the stereotype and write 'The Three Wise Monkeys'. The entire book adorned with puns and metaphors and triple meaning words!

The story is about three extremely principled guys, Amar, Akbar & Anthony (yes, I know. The movie) who are cheated on by the shrewd world at all stages and struggle with their life, love & MBAs. They are nothing like Gandhi's Ideals and the title acts as a pun.
The plot is solid. You may at a forwarded point in the story feel like the author has introduced way too many characters but he managed to weave them all together in an effective way. The execution of the novel is almost perfect and I can say that he is the best Indian Comedy Writer. I bet he wrote a script for Kapil Sharma.

The cover is...well, interesting. The ordinary Indian public is reminded of Gandhiji's three monkeys whenever they see three monkeys anywhere.
See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
This actually has a reference in the story.
How? Come on, readers find it out!
This is an excellent job at writing. Kudos to the author and I award 4.5 stars for this amazing tale!
