THREE WISE MONKEYS
Author: Jeet Gian
Publisher: Leadstart Publishing (Frog Books)
“Easy street is a blind alley”. Isn’t this true? But our ability of clear-headed thinking has been disabled by the fool’s paradise we are living in. ‘Three wise monkeys’ is a light yet relatable read that is sure to send the readers on a journey filled with bouts of laughter and realization. This tale is about love, friendship and the witty brains that can (or maybe cannot) have an upper hand over others.
The three wise monkeys (pun intended) are Amar, Akbar and Anthony, who believe in the rising of the Phoenix and live a carefree life. With humorously witty logics, these three protagonists walk on the path of love only to find more troubles. Some might say that these three get their comeuppance, some might even empathize and some might just enjoy them as characters.
Elementary and uncomplicated narration and redundancy in the description was something I despised in the book. But just like every coin has two sides, the good side or the stronger side of the book is the plot, the dialogues and the theme. It is like a motion picture playing right before your eyes. Another plus point is the suitability of the title; it has a pun in it. Since the protagonists pay no heed to the three basics of good life- see no evil, speak no evil & hear no evil, the pun in the title is too good. The blurb is just apt to disclose minute details about what is in store for the readers.
The author has done a commendable job in portraying the characters of the story. The cover of the book is catchy. However, the proofreading could have been done better.
Overall the story is entertaining and the book is a light read.
