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 formidabl...

Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians #1) Reviews
I'VE BECOME OBSESSED WITH THIS. Crazy Rich Asians is so fun, entertaining, and wild. also ANGST. i love it so much.
This is the most fun I've had reading a book in a LOOOOONG time!!
First off, I will protect Rachel Chu (the MC) with my life. She is amazing, and I wish she got more page time. Across the board we get some great character development, and in particular I loved watching Rachel assert herself more and more over the course of this book.
The middle dragged a bit for me, but it was still pretty fun. The final third, however, was a WHIRLWIND and I loved it.
At times the descriptive paragraphs co ...more
Pure dramatic fun.

I didn't know much about this book save it becoming a movie. When I saw the trailer I was hooked! I listened to the audiobook sample it sealed the deal! I am happy to say that I enjoyed this!
Rachel and Nick have been dating for two years. Nick asks Rachel to come with him to Singapore for his best friend's wedding. Rachel agrees. Little does she know that Nick is one apart of the one ...more
4.5 stars. Easily.
This was pure escapism at its finest. Charting the lives of the Chinese super rich through the eyes of newcomer Rachel, boyfriend Nick and his various family members, this was a wonderful bit of writing that instantly transported me into another world. With backdrops such as Singapore mansions, private islands, luxury chartered planes and the wedding of the century, everything felt so over the top and luxurious. It’s a world I cannot begin to imagine inhabiting, but I really f ...more
The review below covers the first two books in this series. There's not really any spoilers, its more an overall general impression, so you should be fine. But just FYI.
Review originally appeared on my blog, Shoulda Coulda Woulda Books.
I've run into some great writers lately, which means I've been reading fewer of them. No sooner do I discover them than I tear through as much of their catalog as I can, immediately. Maybe it's just that I'm getting pickier and it's harder to find books that f ...more
This is soap opera light literature. It’s fun and easy, a beach read. However, someone picked this for our book club, and I’m wondering what the hell there is to discuss.
While Nick is an only child, this book encompasses his extended family. Keeping track of all the names and relationships can be a bit of a challenge. I almost wanted a scorecard. Nick works as a history professor in the States. Most of his family either doesn’t work or “works” for the family business and one of the interesting ...more
Lest you be confused, this is not a book about crazy [comma] rich Asians. This is a book about crazy rich Asians. As in, stupidly, stupidly wealthy gazillionaire Asians. I had read an excerpt in Vogue, and it seemed like it might be good, fun summer reading, filled with fashion and snobbery and such. I am a lover and regular devourer of US Weekly, who loathes the fact that I do not come from a ton of old money, so this seemed right up my alley.
When I ...more
