How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia summary Ë 8 Mohsin Hamid ↠ 8 review summary Ø eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Mohsin Hamid N by the forces that careen their fates along How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia is a striking slice of contemporary life at a time of crushing upheaval Romantic without being sentimental political without being didactic and spiritual without being religious it brings an unflinching gaze to the violence and hope it depicts And it creates two unforgettable characters who find moments of transcendent intimacy in the midst of shattering change. Even as I rate it I sorta feel like a dick As far as prose is concerned I m really into the concise yet rich thing Hamid is doing hills fulla gold and it was nice learning a little something about Pakistan beyond the things I ve gathered up from Homeland episodes I also know that when the president says Pakistan it sounds like he s making fart noises or maybe attempting to inflate a balloon So Now I know than thatNot into Hamid s use of second person The conceit of the book is that you are you but you re also the writer who is talking to you about you about him at a remove but straight to you about you to you but also about him who is you andstuff I could continue with the commas Please don t read me wrong here I love metafiction the whole uestioning the process of writing via the writing itself pulling the audience in and implicating them in the succession of events etc I mean I m a Charlie Kaufman kinda girl if ever there was one and I could just about recite several of his movies to you from top to toes Unfortunately this novel s faux self help structure fizzled out within each chapter so uickly for me that I actually forgot the title of almost every section before I was even finished reading it which to be fair could honestly be half to do with the fact that I m an idiot I mean yeah the events in those sections were relevant to the titles of those sections but so what I was too busy engaging with the story to even bother considering the structure much which is strange for a structure centric piece of work I guess I just felt it was unnecessarily gimmicky which is almost an unfair thing to say given that his writing is so strong and he obviously doesn t beat you over the head with said gimmick or again I probably would have remembered the section titles but still Even now I can t stop asking myself why Why no character names no place names why this Saramago y use of generalized distinguishers which worked well in Blindness but didn t sit uite as right here Why metamess it all up The few things that bothered me about it did so not because they were obtrusive or insulting to the intelligence but because they just seemed unnecessary Almost like he wasn t confident enough in the narrative he had forged to let it just be which is unfortunate because it totally could have rested on its laurels And that s the thing I really want to get across is once you wade in past the shallow end the water is really nice I mean I saw the ending coming from a thousand miles yonder but that can be satisfying sometimes right Life doesn t only have to consist of wrong turns and cliffhangers yeah Sometimes you just need the catharsis of a Six Feet Under finale Basically I probably will read something else by this guy because most likely all my complaints will be non issues while the praise worthy elements ideally remain present That is unless every book he writes is a pretend self help book which is an insane thought that I m assuming has no basis in realityIn case you re wondering why I even picked this up in the first place if I m crabbing on its basic structure let me clarify I read this for a first time ever in real life book club and being that I found a few pretty paramount elements of its intrinsic design to be bothersome I was not looking forward to self identifying as the prickly one right from the start Fortunately and not the discussion uickly devolved to a wine slugging flurry of mixed conversations about matters both book and non between readers of the book and nots and sortas almost like Sylvester McMonkey McBean had plowed through starring and unstarring all the bellies to pure chaos so much so that I eventually found myself sitting outside in the dark talking to a grade school bully about I dunno child rearing or some shit She had not read the book and I know zero about children Bizarre and blurry though the events may have been I look forward to the next read and I m glad I had this strange little reason to read this strange little book Please let me reiterate that the writing was uite excellent the content sprawling and intriguing the cultural elements engaging etc I cared This is the nicey nicest kind of 3 stars and may even wake up one morning and find itself a big ole 4 Just not this particular morning because I m feeling like Jerks Mcghee the aforementioned wine being unrelated By which I mean directly related
