Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic!

Great read, I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Exciting, eye opening and sexy...

Loved it

Amusingly funny and culturally eye opening. Just downloaded the next book. Looking forward to it.

Terrible Narration

This narrator is horrible. I understand it's helpful to animate the character but there is such a thing as being too animated. She makes every character sound like a Disney villain. I have met many asians, including from Singapore and no one speaks like that, almost like a caricature. I wonder if Chinese Singaporians would be offended if they heard this audiobook. The book itself is what I would file under beach reading, but the narrator ruined it for me.
