Eye-opening insights on the way social media compels us to feel disatisfied, perform consumerism, and broadcast it.

Also I found it interesting to hear about her conflicts with marriage and wedding. A big splashy wedding centered on the bride lures w

Great at capturing the Asian American experience and the racism experienced by Asians in the US.

The characters feel slightly one-dimensional. They each just have one major desire, and their whole life becomes consumed by the desire in an unimaginati

The Border of Paradise by Esmé Weijun Wang
"How can I have not read this book yet? It's astonishing. There are reviews that call it disturbing, but that's not my take. But then...look at my life, lol. There's a discussion to be had around what privileged society has decided isn't disturbing..." Read more of this review »

Great story with realistic characters. A satisfying story.

The only flaw is that sometimes the kids lose their temper and take unnecessary risks by insulting people.

A page turner but with many misleading clues that don't make sense in retrospect. The ending had characters acting in an unbelievable way, setting up strange scenarios.
Niniane Wang and 20 other people liked Benjy's review of The Alchemist:
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
"There are two ways to judge The Alchemist: as a work of literature and as a moral fable. Unfortunately, and despite its inexplicable popularity, it scores horribly on both counts.

I won't bore you with the plot details, but in a nutshel..." Read more of this review »

A quaint fairy tale, but all about entitlement. If you work toward your dream, you are entitled to receive it. The grand dream is... wealth and money. And the only female character has no desires of her own. Her only desire is to quietly obey her hus ...more

“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones
