A Buddha is someone who finds freedom in good fortune and bad BodhidharmaI reuested to review MISFORTUNE COOKIE for its uniue storyline an “American in Hong Kong” I am a “Haole in Hawaii” and have become fascinated with Asian culture MISFORTUNE COOKIE is the second book about Hannah a twenty something American seeking fulfillment in far flung places The first book SINGLE IN THE CITY details why Hannah moved to London and how she coped with the culture shock The second book MISFORTUNE COOKIE chronicles Hannah following her London boyfriend Sam to Hong Kong without a work visa or even a formal commitment Even though I have not read the first book the second book can be read as a standalone story The author Michele Gorman reveals the back story in the first chaptersstart uote from the bookBut she Hannah’s mother should know me well enough to understand that it’s no use trying to bully me into returning home It’s not just that I’m stubborn She fighting against an inviolable mother daughter dynamic a formula that has held though the agesNT12 LS2Where a mother’s nagging across time zones is directly responsible for her daughter’s inability to listen plus her exponential capacity for spiteful digging in of heels It doesn’t take Pythagoras to work that one outend uoteGorman has won over the Mathematician in meMISFORTUNE COOK opens with Hannah slurping noodles in Hong Kong Although Sam is based in Hong Kong he is “on assignment” to other parts of Asia Hannah invited Stacie her best friend and financial whiz to join her in Hong Kong They plan to share an apartment as Sam did not offer to cohabitate As Sam continues to “go on assignment” Hannah finds an apartment lands her dream job and meets new friends in the expat community Despite Sam's absence Hannah finds her own footing in a very foreign culture MISFORTUNE COOKIE could be described as American version of Bridget Jones or Becky Bloomwood from the Shopaholic series I am reluctant to compare one author to another as each has distinctive styles Yet these three heroines – Hannah Bridget and Becky – share the classic coming of age story Gorman hits the mark with Hannah’s insecurities in her life – she has failed at several jobs and she holds on tight to Sam as a highlight of her life Add the comedy of integrating into an exotic local and learning its guttural language – Gorman delivers a light hearted emotional rendering easy reading in the form of “chick lit”Gorman excels in capturing the magic of Hong Kong – its sights sounds smells and residents Gorman’s vividly describes the charismatic “old town” struggling to survive with the booming “new town” I’m ready to book my flight to discover how Hannah found herself in the “fragrant harbor”I reuested an electronic copy from the author for this review

Review The Expat Diaries

Casional weekends with Sam when he can get away from an unanticipated work assignment on the opposite side of the South China Sea Still she's optimistic if woefully unprepared for the intricacies of Hong Kong Stumbling through the alien city which she loves she starts to build a life for herself Thin. Misfortune Cookie is the follow up to Michelle Gorman's Chick Lit debut Single in the City Like its predecessor this novel follows the international meanderings of somewhat ditzy protagonist Hannah her varied love interests and her best friend Stacy While Chick Lit isn't typically a heavy genre and Hannah isn't a deep girl Misfortune Cookie is a cut above the typical novel of its typeOne of the beauties of the book is its less common setting in Hong Kong rather than the standard Chick Lit locale of London Gorman's descriptions of Hong Kong its culture and people are not only fascinating but also lovely The respect and understanding that Hannah gains as she discovers both her new home and her somewhat new self are appealing and help hold our interest in a way that the same character development wouldn't in a less exotic locale Hannah's glimpses into Hong Kong might not be earth shattering just as her discoveries about herself aren't but they are sweet and often lovely and they honestly and accurately evoke what it feels like to be young and struggling to find yourself and your place in a very big worldI enjoy Chick Lit and it's not uncommon for me to find laugh out loud scenes in such books Often the genre contains positively humiliating events that make us cringe as well However it is not typical in my experience to find a Chick Lit novel that will make you cry This one will The authenticity of Hannah's broken heart brought tears to my eyes and many memories to mind of my own struggles with finding love at her age Gorman has nailed it spot on and while it doesn't detract at all from the overall lightheartedness of the novel it does add a certain depth that isn't always present in the genre Because of Gorman's ability to portray Hannah's struggles and development so realistically as well as the detailed and engrossing descriptions of Hong Kong I rate this novel higher than her previous work and higher than the typical Chick Lit submission Bravo Michelle thanks for a nice trip
