Book Review: The Three Wise Monkeys - Jeet Gian

The Three Wise Monkeys Jeet Gian

The Three Wise Monkeys by Jeet Gian is a novel that tells of the daring journey of three guys against the storm of their lives and the author allows us to see the values of friendship, betrayal, loyalty and love in its various meanings, weaving them with the contempt for treachery, with no shortage of twists and action, seasoned by reflections on the meaning of good and evil in the contemporary existence.

There is no hero without sin and cannot stumble, and in a time like the present, when there are most beloved antiheroes, it is pleasant to discover Amar, Akbar and Anthony, who are three pure spirits, embodied with their disarming innocence and purity. They were unable to adapt to the cynicism and the pettiness that dominate around them, who could be tricked by anyone, including their mystifying beautiful girlfriends Meghna, Farah and Sarah, whose selfish convenience and duplicity leads to subtle deception that brings misery to the poor guys.

The whole novel revolves around the trio in a world of hypocrisy and deceit, where no one will be saved from this evil as they are drawn into deep trouble after hiding black money in secret offshore companies that becomes the key that opens the doors of the future, to events that will change the lives of all the characters. The finale offers many unexpected twists despite the irony and sense of humour that pervades the whole work, and even moments of emotion.

The author demonstrates incredible ingenuity in outlining fascinating characters, who are mysterious, but always deeply human and real and develops the characters of Amar, Akbar and Anthony that look like the edge of reality, who at times are whimsical, fickle, and wild with absurd contradictions, but always true to themselves and their own convictions. So idiocy becomes synonymous with them, with the naivety and innocence.

The wonderful, brave and courageous characters are unforgettable, from mainstream to outline, who appear real and well inserted in a plot by no means trivial, as everyone does their part, and do finely as well, with strong sense of humour, but not without some little defect that makes them human in every way.

The plot is bursting with life and is adventurous and daring, and has everything you look for in a swashbuckling book, where you will find courage, self-sacrifice, the great friendship of the protagonists, intrigues, secrets, and women to love with not only pure action, but romance and even tragedy.

The reading seduces us with scaffolding solidity with the elegant style and charm and is really smooth, simple and straightforward with no unnecessary digression, and, despite the length, the book spins away like a dream where you can laugh, you can cry, and also have all the fun in the world, and you get to the end without even realizing it.

The reading is certainly among the most vigorous, colourful and uninhibited as the author captures the tumultuous dynamics of the dialogues and the slight but quick way to tell as he knows how to handle the weapon of few suspense’s and the reader will always be left excited and provoked with joyous delight.

What gives the novel with an enduring and universal pleasure is the sense of camaraderie and generous friendship that runs through it, where friendship is not expressed in words but in action that is seductive, charming, exciting and full of life in a text that with pleasure and pleasantness, leaves the reader inexhaustible in a compelling story sustained and enriched by a good narrative rhythm that immediately involves the reader.

I find it hard to make the idea of feeling aroused by this reading, as I can compare it to thoughts of the mind in a train when you look out the window and look out to the fragments of memories that fade and change with the fleeing landscape and there remains only the pleasure of memory, and so for these pages, intrigued me like a spider web that quickly disappeared.

In conclusion the story should definitely be read that has reflections of how often the goodness in the world is confused in stupidity, and unlike other novels here there is the final redemption, where love wins everything against crime and punishment. If you want something original, you find it here and that's nice when an author knows what he is doing with hundreds of pages that you would like to read in one sitting.
