Crazy Rich Asians - Kevin Kwan

Crazy Rich Asians, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: I became aware of the book after seeing the movie trailer.

The Characters:

Nick, Rachel, Aramenta, Colin, Astrid, Parents, Aunties, Uncles, Other Friends and Cousins, A Porn Star and I think some digintaries

Seriously there were several thousand characters in this book. It’s crazy. (see what I did there)

The Story:

This read started out a little slow for me. The part of the book where you are meeting new characters kind of overshadows where the story is going. However once we cross that bridge the book becomes much more interesting. I loved Rachel and Nick, even if I hated Nick’s family and family friends treatment of Rachel. These ladies that used their bible study time as basically gossip and plot time tickle me.

The lavish lives these characters live are amazing and I think I would quite enjoy the next story in the series.
