Three Thrilling Stories, One Gripping Novel.
In the first tale, a naked man is trapped inside a white box. His only company: ‘DE22912’. How long can he survive?
The second story, ‘Patient Number 9’, is about a hospitalized patient who must save Earth from an alien attack by blue pig-like creatures. The countdown has just begun.
In the third narrative, an angry sixteen-year-old gets hold of a loaded revolver and is determined to make use of all ‘Six Bullets’. And no, it’s not a toy.
The three psychos are part of a connected universe, set in a novel with innovative storytelling, witty narration and an entertaining mix of thrill, humor and drama.
A man’s incapability to be able to be out of a box, his struggle to remind him the past, the essence of DE22912 that flashes on the wall and the countdown that seems to mock him.
Number 9 who wants to save the world and his illusions, are they there for real or something’s wrong with him? A 16 year old’s determination to stop bullying and the end that doesn’t favor him.
The Three Psychos by Yash Pawaskar is truly the story of three mentally unstable people who have their minds playing games with them. Some hatch plans to escape their reality. Some are trapped inside their own brain.
The book is nothing less than a roller coaster ride, written in easy language. It picks on the veins of the human mind and weaves a story that resonates with the reader’s imagination.
All three lives are cleverly made relating to one another but the reader would have no clue regarding that until they have reached the revelation.
The simple goal of reading 157 pages makes the book a preferable pick for a lazy afternoon.

The cover doesn’t relate to anything mentioned in the book, re-designing it would be helpful .
The language used is too simple and doesn’t match the twisted plot that the author writes. Some improvement in it would surely level up the game for the reader and engage them to a great extent.
