Reviews of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles
1. Rating 4.5/5
Toward the beginning of today, I had the delight of completing Jennifer Lee’s charming book The Fortune Cookie Chronicles.
What a book! It takes the peruser actually around the globe to respond to the enduring inquiry of where fortune cookies genuinely originate from. (I won’t ruin it.) But it’s not just about fortune cookies, gee golly – it’s an assessment of the historical backdrop of Chinese cafés (of which there are more in the United States than there are McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King joined); Powerball victors (one year, there were ~110 Powerball champs who got their fortunate five-of-six numbers from fortune cookies); and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Elegantly composed and connecting with, the book pulled me in from the earliest starting point. However, I was snared – I couldn’t stand by to return for additional.
I will say that it was somewhat longer than I expected, coming in at 291 pages – yet I hailed just quickly around 2/3 of the path in. There was sufficiently new and diverse material to keep me drawn in, and Lee worked superbly at hovering back to the underlying premises of the book, strikingly the fortune-cookie root situation and the Powerball numbers.
2. Rating 3.5/5
A fascinating authentic and sociological take a gander at the Chinese café in (for the most part) America and somewhere else. Amazing! I adapted some new things about the Chinese café business, for instance, the colossal “tremendous clearing house” sort of system to secure positions in Chinese eateries for Chinese outsiders and what numerous Chinese need to experience to try and get to America. Some compensation as much as $60K just to arrive (for the most part for “charges”). Whenever I sit in a Chinese café to eat I will do as such with an alternate point of view and with a valuation for the individuals who are attempting to serve/set up my supper.
However, I just give it 3.5 stars essentially because occasionally it didn’t hold my advantage and a portion of the sections could have been altered down yet at the same time a decent, illuminating read. Goodness, one reaction of the book, you will long for Chinese nourishment like there’s no tomorrow! I purchased take-out cashew chicken at 9 pm just because I couldn’t stand it any longer!
