EBOOK or PDF China Rich Girlfriend author Kevin Kwan
Here was eual arts drama gossip and brand name droppings but China Rich Girlfriend is just absolutely tabloid material Some SPOILERS of course For starters Kevin Kwan turns his two main characters Rachel and Nick into two dimensional beings who just exist in the book to give us a better than gossip column eyes into the lives of China s Fu Er Dai children of billionaires and Guan Er Dai children of oliticians There was so much he could have done with the China setting olitics at The Art of Mary Beth Edelson play not just in upper society but Communist Partyolitics and how it affects the lives of China s upper crust or address the tension between the Overseas Chinese and Mainlanders or if he wants to be really superficial what it means to be WeiboWechat famous vs just Instagram blogger famous He even had the typical stepmotherbastard daughter lot to work on But instead he gives us Paris Hilton style tabloid stuff Yawn Boring I skipped through most of their story It s bland story wise unless you re in it for the brands And then there s the two other subplots Astrid s marriage and Kitty Pong s transformation which were definitely interesting story wise but which he also failed to fully develop Astrid s trying to overcome the monster and Kitty s rebirth lot The bad thing is Kevin Kwan setup the stage for their troubles and conflicts but never really dives deep on their low moments and their eventual transformation All of these happens behind the screens and that s what makes the book sooooo lacking Kitty represents a lot of things upstart gold digging starlet mainlander trying to fit in with the Straits Chinese who have a lot of Motivational Perspectives on Chronic Pain protocols she s not aware of I d love to know how she eventually gets accepted by society given her undignified background There s Corinna but that didn t really end up in anything And Astrid s love story with Charlie Like I mean come on After all that drama we just suddenly read that they re now finally together Where s the retribution for Michael That takedown would have been so awesome to read about So yes this book is disappointing If you want to read about tabloid stuff it is very entertaining But if you care aboutlotlines then repare to feel the lack of it China Rich Girlfriend should have been 100 ages longNo lie this is basically a short story that has almost 300 None Like Him: 10 Ways God Is Different from Us (and Why That's a Good Thing) pages of filler NONSENSE FILLERFor example no one can enter a room without Kwan describing in agonizing detail everything about what they are wearing And not just a normal description of their clothes oh no The color and texture of the fabric where the fabric was bought by the designer where the designer grew up and what the designer s nana fed them for breakfast when they were 3 And speaking of what they ateOhmyfuckinggod With as much and as often as they ateIn real life these characters would be unable to leave their homes without the help of firefighters and a crane Every day all day long it seems as though they are stuffing their faces with the most delicious insert random food here before jetting off on alane to shovel MORE food *Into Their Hand On *their mouths Hand on Bible I gained lbs just listening to what they ate Possibly the only other times I ve read about cuisine was when I opened a mother fucking cookbookNow there were several interesting stories happening among the characters really Although I found the view spoiler oisoning hide spoiler Another fun soapy trifle of a novel I wish these books had just a bit ambition Mostly it s extravagant descriptions of extravagant wealth with a glimmer of lot loosely holding everything together The absurdity of Crazy Rich Asians is dialed way up for this second book in the series It s just beyond But again lots and lots of fun 35 Stars Definitely not as good as book one but "IT WAS STILL WORTH THE READ REVIEW TO COME "was still worth

but then a few minutes later I d be living for the drama These books are addicting and that s about all I can say I don t think Kwan is articularly skilled "as a writer He is still using slurs the c word toward Chinese "a writer He is still using slurs the c word toward Chinese the r word comparing neatness to OCD Neither the lot or the characters are well developed in my opinion It would be great as a character driven novel if any of the characters had a Black Women in White America personality Rachel and Nick specifically are so bland They get along with everyone no matter the circumstances while trying to hold moral superiority over them for being not like the others Rachel is nearly murdered and didn t react whatsoever She did have one fierce moment at the end but just like in book 1 these two main characters don t really shine until the end They are observers than activearticipants in the story I did feel connected with Astrid Michael seemed to have a complete
