THREE MISTAKES OF MY LIFE-CHETAN BHAGAT
I have read ONE NIGHT AT CALL CENTRE by the same author, it was an engrossing one, so I bought this one, but it is a very insipid novel with no life. Characters are mere caricatures of preconceived notions going on for years---like minorities are good and poor, rightists are bad and cruel and all that. and as the main characters none of them is exemplary nor even brings an extraordinary insight into the human mind. Everything is very ordinary-characters, situations, and treatment.
So for me all in all a very boring book.,
I read it before it was made into the movie.
Sycamore Row..John Grisham.
It is about Seth Hubbard , a rich man who made lot of money but one by one lost all to his divorces and after second divorce he again makes lot of it and keeps it a secret and when he gets cancer and death is imminent, he makes a hand written will leaving 90 % of his 20 million dollar estate to his black maid, 5% to church and 5% to his brother , leaving his children totally out of it. He appoints a lawyer whom he has never seen but knows that he is an honest one among the crowd of greedy ones . and then he hangs himself leaving the details about his burial and all. Rest is all the court drama about probating the will and defending it to a jury of majority white,and finding a reason why he did it.
