how to get filthy rich in rising asia

Review: How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid is a clever book. It’s written like self-help book, but it’s actually a novel. It takes place in some unknown Southeast Asian country, where two young people are struggling to rise up the social ladder and make their fortunes. The world is a harsh place, and this book doesn’t paint a pretty picture. It’s brutally honest.

The story captivated me right up until the end, where it falls short. I won’t give away the ending, but it’s doesn’t live up to the rest of the book, which is well-written and original in style and substance.

Rating: ★★★★
