I think this would have worked really well on audiobook, because I just could not get into it. It starts off really strong with a lot of messy, messy family and personal life drama, but then it is just…so long. I don’t know. I used to love long books, but my brain just can’t. And now that I read a lot more I’m kind of in camp, “this could have been shorter.” Lately the ones I have been reading have just not been satisfying. So in all, I liked this one fine, but I didn’t love it. I know they are developing it as a TV series and I absolutely think it is perfect for that format. What the last doorstopper book you loved?
Synopsis taken from Amazon: Casey Han’s four years at Princeton gave her many things, “But no job and a number of bad habits.” Casey’s parents, who live in Queens, are Korean immigrants working in a dry cleaner, desperately trying to hold on to their culture and their identity. Their daughter, on the other hand, has entered into rarified American society via scholarships. But after graduation, Casey sees the reality of having expensive habits without the means to sustain them. As she navigates Manhattan, we see her life and the lives around her, culminating in a portrait of New York City and its world of haves and have-nots.
