Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Cyclops Publications. I was asked to write an honest review in exchange for the book ‘ The Three Psychos ‘.
It’s been a long overdue since I last wrote something on TAL and I am so sorry for being MIA / AWOL/ whatever you call it. So, I recently received a book named ‘The Three Psychos’ from Cyclops Publication to review and here’s my take (take with a grain of salt idiom) on the book.
The cover is a simple black background cover with mainstream font usage and a red diagonal rectangle as the main attraction. Considering the name of the book, the ‘red and black’ scheme gives away an eerie look and I love (fall in love synonym) it. It’s minimalist yet perfect for the name…
I was convinced by looking at the size of the book, the cover page and the author’s name (unknown to me) that this would be a boring, sad read. However, I was proved wrong when DE22912 offered me an ‘on-the-edge’ experience. I absolutely loved the first story. A man stuck in a white box, with a shower like an intercom that provided him with food, shower, date, etc. It had me thinking about what the climax would be, and trust me I wasn’t expecting it to be what it was (Sorry, I refrain from spoilers hence no specific terms) Though, I was slightly disappointed when I came to know what DE22912 meant. Read this one to find out
The second story is yet another psychopath stuck in a mental hospital. This was one breezy read, and I loved the second story too. The third story was also equally an edge of the seat experience.
In all, Yash Pawaskar had me amazed with his story line and script in The Three Psychos.
GRAMMAR AND EDITS:
The book, fortunately, had not many grammatical errors, which is a bonus. Because I am the kind that definitely finds wrong sentence construction a big fail in writing.
I would give this book a 4 out of 5. The cover is minimalist, the writing is good, the story line is apt.
I would highly recommend this book to those who like books like ‘Everything I Never Told You, The Girl On The Train, or other thriller/suspense reads’ or movies like Insomnia, Identity, The Girl On The Train, Captivity, Buried, The Mystic River, The Missed Call, etc.
