Crazy Rich AsiansCrazy 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 seasonWhen Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend Nic I think another Goodreads reviewer said it best Shallow characters don't mean shallowly written charactersAnd in the case of this book the author didn't pick up on that memo Shallow characters can be delightfully wickedly compelling when they're written well I mean look at Anthony and Gloria in Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and Damned or Becky Sharp in Vanity Fair or heck even Blair Waldorf in the Gossip Girl series if you're looking at chick lit examples But the characters in Crazy Rich Asians are so two dimensional and flat you just can't care about them Also a pet peeve of mine is when a writer TELLS me something rather than SHOWS me something This entire book is all tell no show Except to show off the author's knowledge of designer labels Slow clapYes this is a rather scathing review but I really don't understand all the hype surrounding this book and I was hoping for well substance yes from a glittery gold and hot pinkbook called Crazy Rich Asians I know But I think the setting and characters had some originality timely relevance and promise and the author didn't deliver Definitely disappointed

WRONG Nick just so happens to be heir to an obscenely large fortune the kind of rich that are so rich that they don't even acknowledge that they have money But they do And they have money and the money they have is a lot From private jets to houses that are like palaces Rachel Chu is about to have a surprise of a lifetime especially when she meets his family “I criticize you when you’re wearing something that looks so cheap It’s a disgrace to me” Rachel Chu is so NOT what Eleanor Nick's mother expected for her darling son Rachel is ABC American born Chinese she works for a living and above all she's not even richSo naturally Eleanor assumes that Rachel is after Nick's money And if there's one thing that can be said with absolute certainty Chinese mothers are not afraid to get their hands dirty to protect their children “You love your children so much you do everything to try to protect them and they don’t even appreciate it” Meanwhile Rachel slowly settles in becoming friends with Astrid Nick's cousin and most popular girl on the island and meets Eddie another cousin who flaunts his moneyAs Rachel and Nick adjust to the Singapore society the sharks are circling “What is this Harry Potter?” Nick sniggered “That’s what you just sounded like Yes I am aware that even now dark forces are trying to sabotage me Every Singapore girl knows that if Rachel snags a proposal from Nick there goes their chances with the most eligible bachelor on the island And if there's one word to describe Singapore girls when they are threatened it's ruthless “I’ve had enough of being around all these crazy rich Asians” Ultimately I enjoyed this one so much It was a bit difficult to jump into this book such a large revolving cast of characters but once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed everything about this book Everyone was obscenely and hilariously rich Their personalities were so over the top and yet completely believable Eleanor in particular was an absolute hoot She was that perfect btchy mother who protected her son despite all evidence to the contrary Rachel's character played well as the straight man of the skit she felt very down to earth without overplaying the homegirl card I definitely feel like I would have reacted the same way as she did in just about ever situation And Nick with so many vivacious characters around him he didn't really stand out I felt somewhat ambivalent towards him he was sweet and a bit clueless but not particularly gripping I loved all the side plots and petty gossip there's nothing I love than a scandal playing out in the juiciest way and this one was no exception He would never give up trying He would take an impossible situation and make everything possible In short utter brillianceYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
