Synopsis

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.

This was such a fun book to read while on holiday. I read it so quick. I enjoyed the characters and the crazy way the rich Asians act. I really enjoyed the way Rachel and Nick really appeared real. Great book to escape with.

Crazy Rich Asians is a must read on any beach vacation! It's a funny, light-hearted book that will delve you into the world of the elite in Singapore. The talk about food itself will send you on a trip to Singapore to try all the dishes they argue about in the book. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a funny & easy read to entertain themselves on vacation!

I was very amused when I read about the locations in Singapore mentioned in this book. I'm pretty familiar with the way locals argue over food!
