Crazy Rich Asians
By Kevin Kwan
A hilarious and heartwarming New York Times bestselling novel—now a major motion picture!
“This 48-karat beach read is crazy fun.” —Entertainment Weekly
When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.
On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.
A fun read!5By jacques_a_ditA good, quick read that can take maybe a day to get through if you are a fast reader. Simple dialogue and quirky romance that makes it the perfect beach day book! Would definitely recommend this book to a friend.
Crazy Rich Asians5By Mentor TravelReally nice book to read a bit mindlessly. Keep reading til the end that’s when it gets good. Overall I’d recommend it.
Not as expected2By Love, life, and pinterestIf you are looking for a story about a couple falling in love and fighting for it, this is not it. I think the last couple of chapters were the most interesting, but it is still anticlimactic with no real point to the book. I chose not to read on to the next book. It was not to my taste at least.

Fun, but....3By Hows of KardsI don't have a problem with the book being light and airy. The writing is a bit stilted, but that doesn't bother me, either. I didn't buy it because I thought it was going to be a retelling of Genghis Khan as told to Shakespeare. I was looking for a frothy read, and I found it. What DOES bother me is that the footnotes are placed at the END of each chapter, not on the same page as the words or phrases they elucidate. The elucidations do me no good at all! If the footnotes MUST be placed at the end, maybe it would be better to at least repeat the word or phrase in question to remind the reader which one it is?!
Can’t believe this is a movie?1By namethatgameI read this because my book club selected it, but I can’t believe they’ve made a movie out of this? Nothing unique or original. A bad soap opera only more trite, shallow and predictable!
Great Read!5By LuvliLadiLoved better than the movie. But the movie is phenomenal!
