Summary From The Book: 

When American-born Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country's most eligible bachelor. 

On Nick's arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers. 

My Thoughts: 

Crazy Rich Asians' summary is just some teaser for the book but the whole story is so much better. 

The front cover of the book is a typical Asian beauty look and it suits the book well. 

I will place the book under Young Adult. 

The book's point of view is mostly under Rachel but it switches from other major characters too. There are many characters in this book, I got confused during the beginning that is why the family tree at the first few pages of the book is important to guide you throughout the story. 

My favorite character is Astrid, somehow I find her issues are common among women. It is easy to relate to her. For example, she downplays what she can really do by herself because she wanted to make her man looked better than her. I just simply love her personality and character. 

The scene that I like the most is when Rachel learns about her boyfriend's true background. It was nerve-wracking. 

The title Crazy Rich Asians do not need an explanation or a hidden meaning, it is already pretty much obvious why. 

The book is a combination of romance, comedy, and drama. Get ready for the roller coaster ride. 

My Favorite Line/s:

"You might have an extravagant tastes but that's never stopped you from being a good person."
Rating: 5/5 because I do not want to put it down and I immediately bought the second book after finishing it. 

Recommendation: To those who wanted to read something that will make you swoon, cry, and laugh. Also for people who wants to learn a little bit about Asian cultures.
