3 mistakes of my life by Chetan Bhagat

The third book by Chetan Bhagat seems to be better than the past two. You can catch a free excerpt at his site. The book is based along the lines of his first book "five point someone" in that it revolves around the lives of 3 friends. Each one has a dream, to make it to the national cricket team, to be a businessman and not to end being a priest(being a priest is not that bad---is Chetan against religion--may be not--but he sure seems agnostic).

The book follows the lives of these 3 Gujarati's through the earthquake, through the Godhra Carnage and into the present(2005 AD). With an unusually dark beginning just like 5 point someone, the book begins with a suicide!!. The book appeals to the masses :) as the 3 friends could be anybody, not just IIT'ians.

The story is continous except for the wonderfully bizzare beginning. We dont get the idea that Govind Patel is a big fan of Chetan. So its kind of surprising that he sends the letter to Chetan in the first place. Apart from such to good to be true situations... the book is a good read.
