Rich and Pretty: A Novel by Rumaan Alam

I’ll get right to the point: I didn’t understand this book. I spent the whole book trying to figure out what the story was. I didn’t. More than that, I read this book after reading A Little Life and I don’t remember the characters’ names. I don’t remember much about them except they were 30ish and living in Manhattan when the book started and it follows them for several years.

I think it’s a story about how friendships evolve. I think.

So that it’s. Short and sweet. It’s not that it’s a bad book. I just don’t get it. I wouldn’t tell you not to read it but I’m also not going to recommend it.
