Description

A hilarious and heartwarming New York Times bestselling novelnow a major motion picture!
 
“This 48-karat beach read is crazy fun.” —Entertainment Weekly

When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.
 
On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 15, 2013 – Kwan s debut novel is a fun, over-the-top romp through the unbelievable world of the Asian jet set, where anything from this season is already pass and one s pedigree is everything. When Rachel Chu s boyfriend, Nick Young, invites her home to Singapore for the summer, she doesn t realize how much gossip she s generated among Asian socialites around the world. To Rachel, Nick is a sweet, intelligent history professor and the first man she s imagined marrying. To the Asian billionaire set, he s the gorgeous heir apparent to one of China s most staggeringly rich and well-established families who virtually control the country s commerce with their ancient fortunes. As soon as she steps off the plane, Rachel is ushered into the opulent world of castle-like estates and mind-boggling luxury. As if the shock of realizing the scale of Nick s wealth is not enough, she must also contend with a troupe of cruel socialites who would absolutely die before they let Singapore s most eligible bachelor get snapped up by a no-name ABC (American-born Chinese). There is also Nick s family his imposing mother, Eleanor, who has exact ideas about who Nick should be dating; his beautiful cousin Astrid, who the younger girls dub the Goddess for her stunning fashion sense (she was the first to pair a vintage Saint Laurent Le Smoking jacket with three-dollar batik shorts ); and Nick s cousin, the flamboyant Oliver, who helps Rachel navigate this strange new world. A witty tongue-in-cheek frolic about what it means to be from really old money and what it s like to be crazy rich.

Customer Reviews

All Style, No Substance

Very little happened in this book, and it was quite shallow. Lots of descriptions of the crazy culture of rich Asians, which was interesting, but got tiresome after awhile. So many minor characters, it was hard to keep track. It was a good sleep aid - put me to sleep in a few minutes almost every night!

Painfully two-dimensiona

It seems that the author spent more time researching designer names than considering readers might want more character development or, heaven forbid, a bit of texture to the plot.

So so

A very lightweight story from a below average writer.
