In February of 2022, Ash Whatever uploads the first video in her Eat the Rich series on YouTube—a cooking tutorial featuring tacos de lengua made from the tongue of morally corrupt televangelist David White. Over the next six months, the menu grows with more videos and more victims, kick-starting a revolution that gives a voice to the working class.

But how far is too far?

Shelves: five-star-reads
An insanely unique book with a message that the world needs to expose its ears to.

‘Eat the Rich’ is a movement initiated by a mysterious serial-killer who prefers to go by Ash Whatever. She hunts down racist and nefarious rich reprobates who have gathered their wealth by exploiting the general people. In Ash’s videos, the victims end up being cooked and devoured by her. And no matter what, we are urged to stay hungry.

‘Eat the Rich’ cries out the words concealed in the depths of our oppressed hea

In a world very similar to our own, a technologically disguised vigilante known as Ash Whatever releases a series of mysterious YouTube videos in which she claims to be kidnapping, murdering, cooking and eating despicable members of the uber-rich (some of whom may seem a little familiar). The tutorials quickly make their way around the internet, and the potentially fake videos are revealed to be very real as notable billionaires begin disappearing. Told through Reddit threads, YouTube transcript ...more

Each The Rich is such an attention grabber from the first page. I read the whole thing in one sitting, unable to put it down. This rarely happens for me. I love the unique way it is written, utilizing different perspectives (alt right to extreme left) through different social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, etc.) in realistic portrayals.

I was really surprised by how good this book was. At first glance, you’d think this was a crime book, murder it’s main topic. Instead you get a uniquely written book about a vigilante/serial killer/don’t know how to describe her, written purely by narrative and comments in a MSM world. I was engrossed from the start. I won’t spoil it, but the last chapter really reached out to me. Masterful...truly, a real surprise find.

I’d definitely read it again, and would highly recommend it to my friends.

What a powerful and utterly unique story this is. This book grabs your attention within the first couple of pages and you get totally absorbed until the end. A thought provoking piece of prose showing the power of the internet for both good and evil. Brilliant, a must read.

I received a copy of this from Voracious Readers for free, in return for a review only. The opinions in this review are my own.

This was the 2nd book I've read from Voracious Readers and my favourite so far. The premise is intriguing, I was hooked by the first course, and read it page to page within an hour. Liked it enough to go back and see if I'd missed any clues or surprises that showed the ending coming.

This is definitely an author I will put on my look out for list. I'd recommend reading

So unbelievably weird but in the best possible way. I love the way it was written, with the segments from various social media platforms. Couldn't put it down, definitely recommend this book. ...more

I read this all in one sitting. The setup of the writing is amazing and helps the story flow. Ash is a very different character from most books I've read. I really liked this book, the idea of eating the extremely wealthy to start a revolution is a weird idea but it works. I loved reading how each chapter changed with the progress Ash was making and how people started to react to the episodes. A great read. ...more

This is Rough

Wow! This is definitely politically inflammatory as well as explicit in certain parts. Male readers will have a hard time with the third part, FYI. For satire, this is rough. There are parts that are funny, and the unique premise is that a female serial killer is taking people she considers to be true rich fat cat villains who stomp on the lives of those less fortunate.

She, Ash Whatever, produces a live video cooking show, called Eat the Rich, in which she outlines the many crimes

I truly enjoyed the "recipes" and why each was chosen for the individual. That was humorous. The comments tacked onto the end of each recipe would have probably been better in paper form. They didn't transfer well to digital. I skimmed most after seeing they were social media/video comments/reddit/whatever grabs of arguments between zealots and "woke". But the history of why each was chosen, the recipe choice and the ability to research each person yourself made the book very intere

I throughly enjoyed this book! Andrew Rivas offers a unique approach to a serial killer storyline. As a reader you are instantly disassociated from the main character Ash, as the only connection formed is through the point of view of watching her videos. The aspect of Andrew Rivas’ writing I enjoyed the most, was the layout; all of the events are told through YouTube videos, YouTube comments, tweets,

I applauded the author's creativity. This isn't the genre I usually read but it grabbed me from the very first page. Fans of Stephen King would appreciate this book as it was dark and realistic, very similar to what's happening in the real world.

The author was smart to include the social media in the book. Social media is part of our lives now. It's very powerful and it can be used easily to create a storm.

Review through Voracious Readers Only

A very clever book by Andrew Rivas. Some very relevant topics in today's society especially as I watched a documentary last night about the opiates addiction in the US. I just read that chapter yesterday afternoon. I had no idea. It was so 'now' with its reddit threads and hashtags. I was a little confused when they started but it simply just worked.
Ash is a very awesome character although I questioned her mentality at times. I have to admit the questions r

Pretty interesting and unique concept for this book. It’s sad coz it’s true.
I liked it more up through chapter 3.5.
Beware it can get gross but the character stories will remind you of someone in the world with similar profiles.

But it was interesting to hear about how villainous the ultra-rich can be, and hopefully it would begin to make people question how they accumulated that amount of wealth in the first place.

Not Impressed

It's the Blair Witch Project Internet style where you read only the videos, chats, streams, and news headlines. It's boring, and I found myself skipping through. The most entertaining part was Peeps streaming to find the bodies, but it was so anticlimactic. I'm glad it was a free book. The idea was cool, and the subject intrigued me. The delivery wasn't that great though.

Really interesting book, not just in its content but how it is structured. It felt more like a documentary than fiction, with the viewpoints of various onlookers to the main events commenting, reacting, etc.

Very clever, and I wonder if Rivas stands behind the idea of the 1% needing to redistribute their wealth and power.

I got this free in exchange for a review from Voracious Readers.

Found it quite a gripping and fast paced story that was easy to get through - hence why I managed to knock it off in one day! Though, at times, the Twitter feeds did go on a bit long. Interesting idea certainly.

Not for the faint

Interesting read. There were things I enjoyed and things I didn’t. I’ll start with the latter: the format of the stats and citations aren’t appealing to a digital read. I did enjoy the little back stories that accompanied each meal. I enjoyed the author’s witty banter. I liked the creativity. I will say it’s not for the faint of heart.

I was intrigued by the concept. It's an interesting take, but I was quickly reminded of why I usually don't read comment sections. It's a little -too- real. The ending also seemed a bit of a stretch, but it was a quick read. ...more

I really enjoyed this book, you don't really want to agree with what he does, but more why he does it. Trying to explain without giving anything away lol if you like hannibal lecter and dexter, this is probably the book for you.
Read this really quickly and I only do that with books I enjoy

Relevant Satire!

Cleverly entertaining at the beginning, mirroring today's recent politics and unbelievable supporters of childish narcissism! Initially quite entertaining but too redundant to continue more than 50% of the book.

It captured my attention from start to finish. Never a dull moment from the hilarious yet gruesome human cooking tutorials to the commentary from different corners of the internet that really sold the immersion. I felt like i was actually there, online, watching it all unfold. Somehow turned soul crushing reality’s of today’s world and vicious murders into a hilarious and entertaining read. I hope for a sequel to feed my appetite lol. However, probably needs a few trigger warnings in the beginni ...more

I received this free complimentary book from viscous readers only. i am not going to give this book a rating but I will say that I DNFed it. It's certainly different than any book I've read. There are episodes, which are videos that you are reading instead of watching, and then there are comments at the end of each one and then you read another video and so on. It's a different style that I, personally, did not care for. Also if you're tired of covid and don't want to even read anything that mig ...more

This was an interesting read but I had a hard time getting used to the way it is written - like reading social media comments. This is probably because I am not big into social media. Overall it was fast paced and captivating
