    The Barbarians are Coming ePUB ↠ The Barbarians barbarians book, coming mobile, The Barbarians kindle, The Barbarians are Coming ePUBAll of the main characters in the book were completely unlikeable which made it hard to finish the book The main character’s loathing of his Chinese background seemed especially forced he constantly has to remind the reader of how much he hates himself to the point where his redemption at the end comes across as contrived 3 stars instead of 1 because the writing was beautiful and the author is obviously a talented writer

    The Barbarians are Coming ePUB ↠ The Barbarians barbarians book, coming mobile, The Barbarians kindle, The Barbarians are Coming ePUBThis is a very iffy 3 star as I just couldn't feel empathy for any of the characters Interesting take on the culture clash of immigrant parents and American born son I found it very hard to follow the father's relationship with Lucy his American wife just too unrelatable for me The Chinese culture was uite interesting and I enjoyed the male point of view

    The Barbarians are Coming ePUB ↠ The Barbarians barbarians book, coming mobile, The Barbarians kindle, The Barbarians are Coming ePUBThis is one of those hidden gems This book is difficult to read because it is so ugly brutal and honest No character in this book is very likeable with exception to the children But I feel the author poured his heart into this book maybe wrote from personal experience This is an exceptionally realistic look into Asian American culture particularly the ABCs American born Chinese or first generation kids with immigrant parents The protagonist is male He is a professional chef a job which obviously confuses and infuriates his parents Even so though he finds himself falling almost willingly into the stereotype of the effeminate Asian male in order to win over his clients He falls for an all American blondie with the successful TV producer dad who manage to turn him into yet another Asian stereotype the lisping goofy TV nerdy chef Yet in his narration the protagonist clearly knows he's being played but for sake of marital harmony and career h
