The Three Psychos is a suspense thriller, where three stories are inter-related. Three stories of suspense and intrigue. So first, let me list the good points.
Unlike most debut authors who go for romance, Yash went for a thriller.
Unlike most new authors flooding the market, Yash writes really well- his prose is crisp, grammar is good, style flows.
I like how he experimented with first person narration, in the form of a tryptich.
The plot is original, and very interesting. It develops in a way that keeps the readers hooked. I did not feel like putting it down for a second.
The characterization is amazing. I could empathize with Alex, Amol and the 16 year old boy- all of them were imperfect, but relatable and real.
The pacing is good, and the way each chapter ends on a cliffhanger is a fantastic idea.
The climax is also very satisfying.
I only wished the book was better edited. There were small grammatical errors throughout- not a big deal, but since the writing is so good, I expected the manuscript to be more polished.
But all in all, I really loved the book. I wish to read more by the author in the future!
