Crazy Rich Asians
Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan
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.

Cute, superficial, light “read”. Not really my thing, but I thought I‘d step out of my comfort zone a bit. I haven‘t seen the movie yet (I know, I‘m way behind on movies), but I‘d like to check it out to compare.

A little chillier this morning, could have used a nice hot cup of coffee to accompany this outing. That is okay though, the kids are playing and I am reading about the wedding of the year. 💍👒💎

It's time for the next discussion question!

Discussion question 2: What does Rachel‘s view of Asian men reveal about the complications of growing up Asian in America (p. 90)? How does Kwan use humor to make a serious point here and in other parts of the novel?

#crazyrichasiansbuddyread

Cheshirecat913 The whole thing seems so foreign to me in general because finding the right match that my family approved of was never a thing for me. It sounds exhausting the way it was presented in the book. 5d
AnneCecilie I‘ve returned the book to the library so I can‘t go back and check the page, but throughout the book I feel that Rachel having grown up in the USA doesn‘t understand things in the same way as her mother and best friend when it comes the Nick. Family and who they are seems to matter a lot more in Singapore than the USA. 3d

Rachel and Nick is going to Singapore for the summer when Nick‘s best friend is getting married. At the same time Nick want to introduce Rachel to his family. There‘s just one problem: Nick‘s family is filthy rich and it‘s old money. Will his family and friends accept Rachel?

I had some trouble getting into this story and there‘s so many characters to remember. By p70 I didn‘t care about any of them. This might have something to do with how ⬇️

AnneCecilie long it had taken me to read those pages. Over the weekend I read the rest of the novel and got completely sucked into it. Know I really want to know what happens with these characters in the next books. Since they‘re not at the library, I have to buy them. #CrazyRichAsiansbuddyread 6d
4thhouseontheleft I had a hard time keeping track of the many characters at first too. Glad you enjoyed it in the end! 6d

2019 Book 24: One of the few times I‘ve watched the movie before reading the book... I liked this book a lot although found myself a little annoyed with all the designer names and brands. I definitely couldn‘t live to only care what other people thought of me. Great story about a place I don‘t know much about, so I feel like I learned something and expanded my horizons a little. I think I‘d like to visit Singapore someday. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Question 1: Does Nick‘s description—“It‘s like any big family. I have loudmouthed uncles, eccentric aunts, obnoxious cousins, the whole nine yards” (p. 67)—match the way most of us view our own families? Why doesn‘t he tell Rachel more about the background and status of his family before their trip?

Comment below with your response!

MaleficentBookDragon We all think our families are crazy, but I really didn't buy that Nick thought his was just like everyone else's. Especially after living his low key life in NYC. I think he didn't want to scare Rachel away, but in the end actually made it more difficult for her. 1w
Cinfhen I think this is a universal feeling despite background, race, religion, culture. We can all relate and find commonality but Nick was intentionally downplaying his family wealth. Part humility/ part self preservation ?!?? I totally agree with @MaleficentBookDragon in trying to shield Rachel he set her up. 1w
AmyG I agree wih @MaleficentBookDragon and @Cinfhen as we all have family members who fit all those descriptions. People are people and it‘s universal. But yes, Nick had to know Rachel would be ahocked to find out how rich his family was. He inew she came from nothing. He shoukd have prepared her. But maybe he thought if he did, she wouldn‘t have gone with him that summer. @cinfhen How is your husband? Hopefully all better. (edited) 1w
See All 7 Comments
4thhouseontheleft I agree with @maleficentbookdragon & @cinfhen we all think our family is crazy, esp when we compare them to the outside persona many families show to the world, that can be vastly different from the inside persona. I was frustrated with Nick at the beginning when he didn't tell Rachel more, but I think he was so happy in his bubble and finding someone who loved him for himself & not his family's wealth, he was afraid to burst that bubble. 1w
AnneCecilie I agree with everything that has been said so far @MaleficentBookDragon @Cinfhen @AmyG @4thhouseontheleft But I also have a feeling that Nick doesn‘t know how to tell of his family fortune. (edited) 1w
Cheshirecat913 I will jump on the train and agree with what has been said previously by @MaleficentBookDragon @Cinfhen @AmyG @4thhouseontheleft and @annece, Nick is use to his family and down playing his wealth like he was taught. How do you really prepare someone for that kind of wealth? Even if he told her, (which I would have wanted a warning like Asteid told him to so), it still would have been overwhelming to actually experience it. 1w
jpellet Every family has its “stuff”— in one way or another! As others have said, how can you prepare someone for what they are about to experience when meeting your family? Especially if they are as extravagant as Nick‘s family. If he had tried to prepare her by divulging more info, would Rachel still have gone to Asia? 6d

This was a fun romp! It‘s actually the type of book I usually hate: over-the-top, vicious, drama-ridden chick lit. But I really enjoyed it, & have to purposely refrain myself from immediately picking up the next one!

I love Kwan‘s writing style, and appreciate this is written by a Singaporean, who understands the nuances present in the novel between mainland & overseas Chinese, new vs old money, etc. And the food! 🍲 😋 #crazyrichasiansbuddyread

I love June mornings! When it‘s still cool enough (and I have more free time) to spend a few hours on our back deck barefoot, in a tank and sweats, reading and enjoying nature. It‘s only 70F, and we have baby finches in one of our birdhouses right now. They just hatched a few days ago! 🐦 🐣

Ironic mug choice too, as I head into Maya‘s last 3 days of elementary school, I unknowingly grabbed the mug from her Montessori preschool. 🥰 #booksandtea

Funny and fascinating. The Singapore old-money, super-rich Chinese subculture is something I knew nothing about. I loved reading a fun novel about it, written by someone who grew up in it. Entertaining and well-written, a fun, fast read. I‘m currently reading the sequel, and enjoying that too.

I'm not great at picking up satirical humor in books, so perhaps this just wasn't quite right for me. Rachel Cho goes to Singapore with her boyfriend expecting a nice wedding with his friends and meeting his family. But what she doesn't know is his family isn't just well off... they're absolutely crazy rich, and they probably won't approve of his American Born Chinese girlfriend.

One of the rare occasions where I went movie AND THEN book. I loved the film, the book a tiny bit less. It went a lot more in depth into the relationships between the characters and how chaotic they were. I loved the humor and all of the footnotes and all of the different personalities. The ending is fantastic and it‘s a worthy read. Are the sequels worth picking up?
