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.

Funny, witty, a little bit confusing at first because there are so many names and clans. But, it worth to read. This book not, even a little, insulting to Chinese/ Asian. I admit it and just laugh at it. A very entertaining read and you can just gasp and dumbfounded, they are soo rich, soo crazy, and Asian. I recommend to read all the series.
hillarious funny book written. I loved all the descriptions of the food, from fried noodles, to dumplings and the more adventurous Asian fusion. This book is guaranteed to have you craving the best satay or banana fritter dessert. There's also the fashion, it's plastered with international designers, brand name labels and parisian elegance. Diamonds, jewellery, hair styles and expensive gowns, Crazy Rich Asians is all about opulence.
this book is really entertaining. can't wait to read the second book.
Alamak, this book is so good ( ^^ )
Seriously, Kwan really knows how to write the crazyness of rich asian people. I believe he's one of them or if he's not, then he must be a really genious writer to be able to write a funny story about them. So many character and each character is descirbed very well and trust me, reading this book will give you moreeeeeee new words to you vocabulary.
