Sarah Broadhurst's view...

If you are into designer labels, jet set lives and the uber-rich, then this glamorous tale has a nice twist in so much as it’s all based round a wedding in Singapore which is estimated to cost 40 million dollars! It is indeed ‘another world’. We have a Chinese American girl, a little out of her depth in this vulgar, opulent world, trying to make a bit of sense of her life. It’s satirical, fun, highly improbably and good escapist stuff, o.t.t. and crazy indeed.

If you like Kevin Kwan you might also like to read books by Jackie Collins, Candace Bushnell and Jo Reese.

Synopsis

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and 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 she is about to encounter the strangest, craziest group of people in existence. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian jet set; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money - and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich.
