'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 jet set; 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.

3.0 Crazy Rich Asians
Contemporary romance isn’t really my cuppa, but this was enjoyable. I didn’t have as much trouble keeping track of all the characters as I feared I would (I admit, I’m daunted any time there’s a family tree at the start of a book), and yet I felt like I could have done without some of the family sub...

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleI watched the movie adaptation a while ago and enjoyed it well enough so I figured the audiobook would be worth a read. The book started out well enough. I really enjoyed the descriptions of the food. Everything sounds so tantalizingly delicious. Howev...

Ah, the lives of the obscenely rich and famous! The wealth described in this book was sure to make even the most content of us wonder what it would be like to be THAT stupidly rich and never have to worry about losing sleep over an unpaid bill. Or maybe it was just me, ha! I really liked Rachel and ...

I really wanted to see this movie and decided to read the book first (and of course go see the movie!). So, this is safe to say a book review and a little bit of a movie review too.

4.0 Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan - My Thoughts
What a fun read! Lots of buzz about the movie and then the book went on sale, so how could I resist, even though it's not my usual fare. I will admit that I spent a lot of my reading time with a recurring thought of "Really? Is this for real?" going on in my mind because the book seemed to me that...
