    Synopsis
    Rachel and Nick have been dating for a while and this summer he wants to take her to his home in Singapore for a friend’s wedding and to meet his family. While they think nothing of spending the summer traveling together, his family, who are “crazy rich” (seriously ridiculously rich) are worried that Nick is going to propose to someone who they have not vetted and is not from a “good” family.
    Review
    I started this book thinking it would be about a ton of stereotypes blah blah blah. And that it would be a fluff read – it would take me just a few days to get through a beach read. Alas, I was wrong, but in a good way. I was totally entertained and wanted to read more for multiple reasons. One, Kwan describes some of the houses/treasures of the homes so well that I could imagine just how they looked and it was amazing to be able to see this almost panoramic view of these people’s homes. Two, the characters were well written and entertaining. The only thing I had trouble with was keeping track of who all was who (and thus the family tree in the beginning of the book that I referred back to often once I had “met” so many people).
    I’m currently waiting for the next book (China Rich Girlfriend) to be available from my library. I totally wanted to roll right into book 2 but I’ll have to wait a bit.

    I had not heard of this book until I was at a family gathering. We got to talking about favorite books and one after another my cousins began saying
    “Crazy Rich Asians.” I had to get this book based on their recommendations. Without giving away too much, this is a fun look into the super rich Singaporians and their eccentric ways. I laughed my way through and when I heard it was being made into a movie I knew I would have to go see it.

    NOTE: Do NOT skip the footnotes on each of the pages, they bring a little more understanding and a lot more laughs!

    Sort of the Singapore version of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, this is a quick, fun read. I immediately followed it with the sequel, China Rich Girlfriend, and then the last book, Rich People Problems. Clearly, the series is addictive! Kevin Kwan writes in a breezy, humorous style which is easy to digest. Supposedly, he is familiar with the super rich Singapore society, so I take it these may really be basically true stories. This extremely wealthy society is introduced to us through the eyes of a middle class American Chinese girl, and the story is told through the viewpoints of the main characters, each appearing in succession in short but succinct chapters. I hated the materialism and one-up-manship indulged in by the women (mostly), much like the social positioning of the society matrons in our own Gilded Age – the Vanderbilts and the Morgans, et al. (Why are women so cliquish and competitive with one another? It’s high school all over again!) But in all fairness, some of the characters did have meaningful jobs. Kevin Kwan does a good job of humanizing his characters by showing us that they too have problems. Apparently, money can’t buy everything – although it can buy a lot. At the end of this first book, I found I was really glad not to be a part of this society. There is something repellant about that level of self-indulgence. But I was still interested enough in the characters to continue the series. That was partially because they did have problems, but mostly because of sympathy for the American Chinese girl caught up in this world. The series was a fun read. Word to the wise – study the family trees before starting to read. It is an extended family with several branches and keeping the characters straight can be confusing.
