BOOK REVIEW:
FREE FOOD FOR MILLIONAIRES
BY MIN JIN LEE

We hope you enjoy this book review by Gunta Krasts Voutyras.

Free Food for Millionaires is a very long novel that depicts, in minute detail, the professional and private lives of a dozen or so characters who are all first generation young Americans of Korean ancestry. The story takes place in the 1990s.

The males are Wall Street types who are highly intelligent, successful, hard partying, and lacking moral fortitude. Descriptions of their peccadillos are more than any reader needs to know. Of the three prominent female characters, two of the younger ones suffer from lack of self-esteem even though they come of privilege plus have an Ivy League education. The lack of self-esteem translates into bad choices of husbands, bad personal spending habits, much debt, and much unhappiness. The third woman, who is the only one born in Korea, is older and much steeped in her ancestral ways. She is unable to adapt due to her fear and as a result suffers greatly even though she has the natural gift of a beautiful singing voice.

This book has 560 pages and is too long winded. It includes too much useless information, unnecessary detail, and overall this is not enough to keep the reader's interest or start one's adrenalin flowing. I do not recommend this book.
