Présentation de l'éditeur

In late 2000, a young boy in Ahmedabad dreams of owning a business. To accommodate his friends' passion, he opens a cricket shop. However, nothing comes easy in a turbulent city. To realise their goals, they will have to face it all-religious politics, calamities, unacceptable love and, above all, their own mistakes. Will they make it? Can an individual's dreams overcome the nightmares of real life? Can we succeed despite mistakes? Based on real events, from bestselling author Chetan Bhagat comes another dark, witty tale about modern India, where the author brings the ethos and isolation of an entire generation to the fore. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

The 3 mistakes of my life 16 juin 2010
Par D. Chakraverty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A word of caution: that you might find minor spoilers. The 3 mistakes of my life gives a nice perspective of life in Gujarat. The characters are three ordinary men who start a business venture and strive to make it big. They are the owners of a sports goods store. They have their own fears and philosophies in life. Omi fears he will end up being the priest of the temple. Ish fears he will never be able to live his dreams of being a cricketer through Ali. Vidya fears she will end up as one of those doctors who didn't want to be a doctor. Govind appears focused and ambitious though. The events happen amidst the Bhuj earthquake and the Godhra riots.
Chetan Bhagat's stories always involve a lot of drama at the end, and this one was no different. A fight scene at the end lasts for pages. Perhaps it is his style of writing. However this book lacks a background/characters from IITs and IIMs. Overall, it is nothing great, but definitely worth a read.

Chetan Bhagat surprised me with The Three Mistakes of My Life, I was expecting a poor book, based on reviews, but this one was markedly better than the debacle at the call center. A simple, short read. Not highly recommended, but a good read to pass time. Bhagat should NOT be the first Indian author one ever reads however.

A Walt Disney Family Film - Bollywood version 27 décembre 2011
Par Knut L. Seip - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
To give these book 5 stars is like giving a public kiss, not quite com il faut. This book is, by the way, about secret kisses. "Sometimes we kissed every time she solved a problem"(p. 197). "She" is Vidya. (She could now officially make her own decisions. Unofficially, she had done that since her birth." p.195). She is 18 years old and she is, in her way, a distant sister (sic!) of Ibsen's "Nora" or Larsson's "Salander".

I think the main message of Bhagats story is about love, friendship and loyalty in an Indian society. Plus a Greek tragedy. There are other themes as well, cricket and cricket ambitions, of course, business ambitions, academic ambitions. Apart from the kisses and their story, this book is something like a draft for a Walt Disney family film: "I only like stories with happy endings" he said (p. 256) but in an Indian version. Here, a cricket match replaces an American football game as the first test of the hero's abilities, and the hero wins- of course (and we know that the hero will win), - however, this first time, the hero is not the "I" of the story. The second test for the second hero, which is now the "I", is more like the finale of an American western film. So, how do two such stories blend? In Indian version it works well, telling something about ambitions and love, but much more about the Indian society, I believe.

So, why did I give this text four stars? I suppose it has to do with the nature of the meeting point between the author and me, as the reader. I found the text charming, there were passages that I enjoyed immensely (but I do not think all other readers will find the same passages as thrilling as me.) I realize that the text must have been written with a Bollywood script version in mind, that there are scenes and sentences that are not very innovative, "and yet..", as Professor Henry Higgins might have said. I bought the book in a small, nice bookshop in Delhi with employees sitting at their desks as in a library. It helps. And there are two observations in the text that I often return to: when I see old men reading newspapers, I recal the sentence: "Ish' dad sat on the dining table, continuing his PhD on the newspapers of India" p.195, and the second sentence I recal when I visit stores during daytime. The "I", Govind Patel, has just calculated the break even point for sales in a new shop, and thinks.. " The dull aspect of opening a shop is boredom."..and even with 20 customers a day it meant only around two customers an hour." p. 24.

Citations: "Australians give the word laid- back new meaning." P. 171. "India is not a place for dreams" (p. 115). "We locked eyes again. In an entrance exam for insolence". (p. 156). Ish and I looked at Omni for footnotes" (p. 33). "A voice in me still protested, but now the voice had no volume" (p. 185). Why do old people like newspapers so "much? They love reading news, but what do they do with it? (p. 180)

Author needs to take a refresher's course in English 30 septembre 2014
Par Spike - Publié sur Amazon.com

I cannot get over how violated and disgusted I felt attempting to get through even the first page of this book. Like an idiot, I purchased three of Chetan Bhagat's other books before even having read one of them. What a waste!
A decent read with a nice setting 31 mars 2013
Par J. Parisse-brassens - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"The three mistakes of my life" is a book by Chetan Bhagat, an author from India. Bhagat is quite successful and has written many good books. In this one he tells the story of Govind and his two friends Ish and Omi, who live in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Govind wants to become a businessman, Ish loves nothing else but cricket and Omi is just happy being with his friends. Together they open a cricket shop and become somewhat successful in their business endeavours. This is the background to the story of how they discover a young Muslim boy called Ali, who has a gift for cricket. Ish trains him hard and tries to make him an elite cricket player. But things don't come easy to any of the three friends. Govind's business dreams are shattered by a powerful earthquake, Ali does not want to relocate to Australia to become a successful cricket player, and Omi has to face the political ambitions of some family members. The politics and religious clashes between Hindus and Muslims are part of the story, and in fact, will contribute to its tragic ending. This novel reminded me of the tensions I myself felt between Hindus and Muslims when travelling through Rajasthan. The story is okay, although a bit superficial at times - and the cricket thing can be a little tedious. It's a nice story of love, passion, money, politics, and hate. Well written with fun characters, but it would benefit from more depth in its character depiction. A good read, and one in a different setting for once.
