Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians, is back with a wickedly funny new novel of social climbing, secret e-mails, art-world scandal, lovesick billionaires, and the outrageous story of what happens when Rachel Chu, engaged to marry Asia's most eligible bachelor, discovers her birthfather.       On the eve of her wedding to Nicholas Young, heir to one of the greatest fortunes in Asia, Rachel should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond from JAR, a wedding dress she loves more than anything found in the salons of Paris, and a fiancé willing to sacrifice his entire inheritance in order to marry her. But Rachel still mourns the fact that her birthfather, a man she never knew, won't be able to walk her down the aisle. Until: a shocking revelation draws Rachel into a world of Shanghai splendor beyond anything she has ever imagined. Here we meet Carlton, a Ferrari-crashing bad boy known for Prince Harry-like antics; Colette, a celebrity girlfriend chased by fevered paparazzi; and the man Rachel has spent her entire life waiting to meet: her father. Meanwhile, Singapore's It Girl, Astrid Leong, is shocked to discover that there is a downside to having a newly minted tech billionaire husband. A romp through Asia's most exclusive clubs, auction houses, and estates, China Rich Girlfriend brings us into the elite circles of Mainland China, introducing a captivating cast of characters, and offering an inside glimpse at what it's like to be gloriously, crazily, China-rich.

4.0 YEARRINGS?!?!?
This isn't really a review. It's a comment about the narrator, Lydia Look. There are certain things about her narration that I enjoy, but one thing that drives me crazy is that she pronounces "ear" "year"--and in this audio narration, there were multiple references to YEARRINGS. YEARRINGS?!?!?!? ...

5.0
Utterly pleased with this second installation in the crazy rich, fickle and idiotic people series. Once you get used to the ludicrously lavish and indulgent world the characters live in from the first book, it's so much easier to see and enjoy their lives as almost normal. Almost. There are still so...

Crazy Rich Asians, Book 2 I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series The Characters: The cast of this book is legion, just like the last one. Though we do spend time with Rachel and Nick, Astrid, Michael and Colin, Charlie Wu and newcomers Carlton and Colette. The Story: I’m not sure we...

4.0 Fun with a side of crazy...
This is probably more accurately a 3 1/2 star book but I found myself very invested in the subplot concerning Astrid and Charley (in large part because they're being played by Gemma Chan and Harry Shum Jr. in the upcoming movie) and even when the story does go entirely off the rails it's at least en...

4.0 Returning to the playground of the wealthy in China Rich Girlfriend
While I enjoyed the book and the antics of these beyond wealthy beings who exist like mythical creatures for me, it didn't grab me as much as Crazy Rich Asians. I enjoyed picking up with these characters and glad to see where Rachel and Nick were at. I didn't mind that they mostly functioned as a le...
