Book Review: The Three Psychos by Yash Pawaskar

The Three Psychos

Author: Yash Pawaskar
Publisher: Dimple Publishers
Rating: 3/5

We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It's a death trap.

~Anthony Hopkins

The human mind is a difficult labyrinth. Once anything goes inside, it is difficult to put that thought aside. ‘The Three Psychos’ is a fictional novel mystery and thrill as its major elements. The book comprises of three different stories having a common link – the human mind. The first story deals with the mental torture the protagonist has to go through because of his deeds in the past; the second story narrates the story of a patient who is under treatment for his mental illness and the third story describes the mindset of an exasperated teenager who is determined to utilize the six bullets in the revolver. The ingenious story-telling and the wise plot-line do the trick and make the story interesting.

The layout, font (size, style), indentation, text alignment and the content presentation is fine. The author has successfully portrayed the emotional turmoil- right from the bright side to the dark one. The stories are divergent in the beginning but the climax forces them to converge at a well-thought juncture. The author has successfully proved that it is our mind that holds the storm by the hair. Given to its power, it takes a lot of courage and will to argue the toss.

The lucid language and the short narration made the reading fast-paced. While reading, the readers will surely experience it in form of a movie because the characters will come to life and the scenes might be imaginable.

The foremost drawback in the book is the layout. With the insufficient information in the blurb, the expectations are set on the lower side of the scale. The cover also fails to impress.
Overall, the book is a result of a well-sought plot.
