Product description

Product 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.

'Crazy Rich Asians is an unputdownably funny, original, modern novel. An outrageous satire of the Asian squillionaire set, this book is like a Chinese Dallas meets Pride and Prejudice. The combination of gold homewares, couture, private jets, absurd social rules and snobbery is utterly hilarious. I actually couldn't put this book down to eat or to watch Downton Abbey.' - Plum Sykes, bestselling author of Bergdorf Blondes

Really only 3.5 stars but worth the read to see how stupid society can become.

I first saw this book at the airport and loved the title. Crazy Rich Asians was at first a little tricky for me to navigate because there are lots of families, lots of relationships and lots of designer names to juggle, but once I got the hang of who was who and the translation of every day phrases, this book was awesome. Great story, funny, sad and if there is any truth in the pages, definitely crazy.
I'm a white girl who lives in a city filled with Asians, and after reading this book I feel like I understand a little more about their culture. At least the wealthy, jet set, maniacal family culture of the crazy rich. Nice one Kevin. You write beautifully.

A novel that truly made me belly laugh. The silliness, the mockery - it was OTT at it's best. I loved the characters, the parodies, it was just all delightful. Have completely recommended this book to others as a non-serious but highly entertaining laugh! More encore more!

A fun read about totally unbelievably rich Asians. There were some funny sections. There are also really well written characters. Family relationships are put under the spotlight by a group of super rich families spread around the centres of successful Asians. (HK, Singapore etc). The judgments made on women's jewellery, clothing etc are probably found in any group but I don't know any one who thinks you are slipping down to poverty if your fortune goes under the $1billion mark. I hope they were discussing things in Singapore dollars but I wasn't sure.

The book was called a comedy in one comment I read. There is so much more to it than this. Take away the incredible wealth and we have a story of families every where. Mothers wanting to arrange good marriages. Girls being catty about a new group member. Business deals to make a quick profit. Every one trying to impress the others with their success in life. Sounds familiar? It is.

The premise for this dizzying ride of a novel is a guy from Singapore who works in New York wants to take his girlfriend home to meet his family. He doesn't think it's important to tell her that his family is crazy rich.

This is a fantastic fun novel!

This was a great read that immersed me into the life of the rich and famous in Singapore. I want to go and visit Singapore now! Each chapter revolves around one character and you just wanted to keep reading to find out more. I couldn't put this book down!

Crazy, OTT, secretive families, show offs, arrogance, snobbery its all there. Flying private planes like they are public transport. Trophy shopping, wonderful descriptions of food, insights into the mindsets of Asian parents, the real estate market in Singapore. A great story about Nicholas taking Rachel home to meet Mum, except she's not there! She's run off with her friends to do a spot of shopping and to get the low down on Rachel's background from a private detective. Fantastic read, highly recommend it.
