Got the book delivered on time as well as it was a new book..not 2nd hands :-)
Very good service and excellent price.....the cheapest ever found......I'm very happy with INFIBEAM :):)
it is a must read.. very entertaining one... read this one when i heard about the controversy of a great bollywood blockbuster 3 IDIOTS... but ya seems alot like the book.. they are very similar dialogue, almost the same dialogues.. but there are some minors changes though... about the book, a good entertainer.. i am a very slow reader, but i completed this in just 2 days, that is one of my record reads.. i rush through books for 2 reasons... 1. they must be boring, so i want to get out of it fast.. 2. they must so interesting, i cant resist reading it fast.. this book is definetely comes under the latter category.. joyful one.
Chetan Bhagat has proven him time and again with all his books that no writer can better relate to masses than him.i had read FPS about 2 year ago and at that time i did like it but after watching the movie three idiots i read this book again and to be honest to u i found the book is better anyday.its has much better humour,story and logics which probly missing in the movie.
it's a great reading,meant for common masses, an eye opener for parents not to thrust their dreams on children & for youngsters to follow their dreams with open eyes & minds like the THREE IDIOTS in the book
