Crazy Rich Asians

Kevin Kwan
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.

Really fun, very quick read. There were some pretty confusing parts, but as you get going, it’s easy to figure it out. The ending was super cute, but this story was crazy.

I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would when it first came out. As with other people's reviews, the title put me off the book. But new reviews coming out right before the movie was released made me want to try it. I enjoyed the quirky characters and situations, as well as the commentary on manners and cultures. Don't expect to get resolution at the end of the book though; it sets up the next one in the trilogy.

It's a quick read and I really couldn't put it down until I finished it.

a take on Pride and Prejudice within Asian community.  Very entertaining, the definition of a perfect beach read.

A nice, lighthearted, funny romantic comedy. Didn't blow my mind but it was pleasant all the same. Asians just wanna be featured in silly stuff like the rest of us.
