Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.
When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick's formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should--and should not--marry. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich.

    Had promise and then it fell flat. Mainly because it ended without a well done closure story. Disappointing read.

  • Crazy rich Asians

    From Karen the epic nubblet
    A good funny book, kinda give you an idea what Malaysia and Singapore has in store for you should you ever want to go there. For the most part it makes you hungry for the food if you don't live there anymore, it makes one miss home ...
  • Breezy summer read

    From michael mccaig
    Recommended if you've enjoyed books by authors like Dominick Dunne who write about a world most of us can only dream about- the realm of the stupidly- rich. This book is a simple but frolicking mix of gossip and romance. Maybe the end is a bit forced and even predictable ( sequel anyone? ), still a great beach or poolside read. Looking forward to the next book by this author.
