#BookReview ; The Three Wise Monkeys by Jeet Gian

The trio—Amar, Akbar, and Anthony—had no clue whatsoever about their goddammit indecisive-careers-and-indefinite-struggles.
And that was because they were born with the Peter Pan Syndrome and were simple enough to be tricked by anyone, including their mystifying girlfriends—Meghna, Farah, and Sarah. And as is the fate of all morons, they were drawn into

trouble—deep trouble—of hiding crores of rupees of black money in secret offshore companies.

Will their mistake of turning a blind eye to the philosophy of ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ cost them their careers and put them in prison? 

Will Lady Luck change their fortunes forever?

The Three Wise Monkeys is the second novel of Jeet Gian. The author is a chartered accountant & founding partner of JCA Consulting Group based in Dubai (U.A.E.) , he lives there with his family.

The story is about our 3 protagonists Amar, Akbar & Anthony (don’t worry it has nothing to do with the 70’s movie) & their journey as accountants along with their girlfriends but what’s most important thing to mention about them is that they’re completely losers trying hard to make their way & in their quest to succeed they face different things which even we see in our real lives, corruption, black money, tax havens, etc. To enjoy this get it right now.

The author is a chartered accountant himself so he knows how the rich manages their unaccounted money, that’s why he has been successful in writing a story around this issue & accompanying it with humour has only elevated the plot. The witty & funny dialogues will surely keep the readers entertained. I believe the book should’ve been made a little bit more compact since readers might lose their focus in some parts of the story, also the editing could’ve been a bit better. The language used is simple while the cover & title are nice too. It surely is an enjoyable read.
