Oei Hui Lan is the author of No Feast Lasts Forever ( avg rating, 29 ratings, 4 reviews, published ).
Hui Lan's life journey was like a soap opera; full of conflict, infidelity and tragedy of life.
Her father suddenly died and left inheritance that made calamity among his 8 wives and 42 children. The inheritance that supposed to be a blessing turned into a continuous conflict that has never ceased until this very moment. A history of life that really makes us wonder whether wealth and prestige can really give one true happiness.
The exact type of book that annoys me the most. I don't know why I even bother to translate the synopsis into English. Hui Lan is the real life version of Veruca Salt. When I read Roald Dahl 's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory , the spoiled selfish Veruca and her annoying parents ticked me off so much that I actually grumbled in vain when at the end of the story they made it safe and sound with just 'simply covered with rubbish'.
What happened next with the Veruca girl was remained unknown, until this very book of Oei Hui Lan's biography is being released almost a half century later. The book is simply lousy.
I'm not sure if the story of some rich girl who spent her entire life gloating in luxury and never even appreciated it until the last decade of her life when she's old and lonely and finally realized that she's taken life and people for granted is worthy enough to be published into a book.
There are so many other great people -Indonesian, to make a point- whose life story -I believe- is much more interesting and inspiring to be packed into a book.
I can't believe the publisher actually let the book parading such a horror.
