SynopsisRachel and Nick have been dating for a while and this summer he wants to take her to his home in Singapore for a friend’s wedding and to meet his family. While they think nothing of spending the summer traveling together, his family, who are “crazy rich” (seriously ridiculously rich) are worried that Nick is going to propose to someone who they have not vetted and is not from a “good” I started this book thinking it would be about a ton of stereotypes blah blah blah. And that it would be a fluff read – it would take me just a few days to obtain through a beach read. Alas, I was wrong, but in a amazing way. I was totally entertained and wanted to read more for multiple reasons. One, Kwan describes some of the houses/treasures of the homes so well that I could imagine just how they looked and it was awesome to be able to see this almost panoramic view of these people’s homes. Two, the characters were well written and entertaining. The only thing I had problem with was keeping track of who all was who (and thus the family tree in the beginning of the book that I referred back to often once I had “met” so a lot of people). I’m currently waiting for the next book (China Rich Girlfriend) to be available from my library. I totally wanted to roll right into book 2 but I’ll have to wait a bit.
I had not heard of this book until I was at a family gathering. We got to talking about favorite books and one after another my cousins began saying"Crazy Rich Asians." I had to obtain this book based on their recommendations. Without giving away too much, this is a fun look into the super rich Singaporians and their eccentric ways. I laughed my method through and when I heard it was being created into a film I knew I would have to go see TE: Do NOT skip the footnotes on each of the pages, they bring a small more understanding and a lot more laughs!
Kevin Kwan's writing style is very entertaining, and he also describes everything in so much intricate detail that it basically forms a picture in my e level of wealth he depicts is unfathomable, and several of the characters are people I would never wish to meet in my life... ;-)However, I enjoyed reading this book, and I already started his second book "Rich China Girl".Definitely a fun summer read.
How intelligent was I to buy the trilogy all at once!!!!! I finished this book latest night and enjoyed it so much that I closed one book and immediately went to the next book to continue the story. It is totally entertaining though slight wonderful and might not be enjoyed if you are struggling financially because everything is decadent. However, the customs of the old timers are not fresh to any one's culture. As the author states, they are beyond rich or super rich, they are CRAZY RICH. His knowledge of the very best means he did a lot of research. There is also a story line that intrigues you and keeps you reading. He was clever to shuffle the chapters so you hold getting pulled into another narrative. I totally recommend this book.
Sort of the Singapore ver of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, this is a quick, fun read. I immediately followed it with the sequel, China Rich Girlfriend, and then the latest book, Rich People Problems. Clearly, the series is addictive! Kevin Kwan writes in a breezy, humorous style which is simple to digest. Supposedly, he is familiar with the super rich Singapore society, so I take it these may really be basically real stories. This extremely wealthy society is introduced to us through the eyes of a middle class American Chinese girl, and the story is told through the viewpoints of the main characters, each appearing in succession in short but succinct chapters. I hated the materialism and one-up-manship indulged in by the women (mostly), much like the social positioning of the society matrons in our own Gilded Age - the Vanderbilts and the Morgans, et al. (Why are women so cliquish and competitive with one another? It's high school all over again!) But in all fairness, some of the characters did have meaningful jobs. Kevin Kwan does a amazing job of humanizing his characters by showing us that they too have problems. Apparently, cash can't buy everything - although it can buy a lot. At the end of this first book, I found I was really glad not to be a part of this society. There is something repellant about that level of self-indulgence. But I was still interested enough in the characters to continue the series. That was partially because they did have problems, but mostly because of sympathy for the American Chinese girl caught up in this world. The series was a fun read. Word to the wise - study the family trees before starting to read. It is an extended family with several branches and keeping the characters straight can be confusing.
I loved this books, it was fun to read and funny too and very interesting I wouldn't place it down. It is well written and the author really explains the Asian culture of being a Singaporean, the Chinese culture, being a mainlander, how the family dynasty works and wealth passed down to first born sons. This book is to become a film and I can't wait to see how closely it comes to the book and which actors are hired to play the characters in this book as there are a lot of over the top characters. The wealth of these people is just jaw dropping This books, without saying too much, is about a very, very, wealthy family and the son, from Fresh York, who brings home for the summer his American born Chinese (ABC) girlfriend who has no idea the wealth her boyfriend's family comes from. What's amazing about this books is how the author, adds footnotes as the end of each chapter to explain culture differences, slang language, foods eaten, etc., and flow charts showing the various family dynasties. A must read.
Sell Me in a Sentence: If Gossip Girl was set (mostly) in Singapore, focused on adults, and written ort Summary: Rachel Chu is invited by her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, to his hometown of Singapore to attend his childhood best friend’s wedding of the century. Nicholas’ extensive family enters the picture and all Rachel’s plans for a chill summer vacation go to : One of the reasons I think I like this book so much is that I love the “middle class person is exposed to high society life” trope beautiful much in every book or film - unless it is overdone or rings false. I wonder if this is also real of a lot of people, whom like me grew up lower middle class. We know that rich people have the same issues as us; that as a million fables have taughts us, cash can’t buy happiness. But it’s always fun to have this socioeconomic immersion.Even if this book wasn’t so glamorous, name-dropping everything from the top, private, Christian, elementary schools in Singapore to unique edition Birkin bags, the writing is top notch. Not only does Kwan deliver on his wry observations, but he is witty and shrewd. Flip begin the book and turn to one of his footnotes - no matter the chapter I’m sure it’ll either give you a laugh or provide you with some insight on Southeast Asian culture.I think this is a amazing book to read when you’re more busy, because it’s simple to remember the details, yet each time you pick it back up your sucked right into the story. I already own the sequel and am looking forward to reading it once I obtain through some other TBR books.
I originally thought this would be full of stereotypes and scenes where I would cringe, but instead it turned out to be a thoughtful yet comedic pageturner that I couldn't place down. The fact that there was not only drama from Nicky's family and their wealth, but also from Rachel's background as well had me on the edge of my seat. The balance of likable and unlikable characters created me really have fun the story and always have someone to root for. Kevin Kwan did a really amazing job of making fun of his characters while subtly making his insights throughout the story. Considering I had to read this for a class too, this was definitely the most enjoyable needed reading I've done!
Not sure if this is really how crazy rich Asians live and think but it sure was entertaining. Even the ultra rich have issues! Excellent for long vehicle rides or busy moms. If you have to stop reading it's simple to pick up where you left off without feeling lost. I love all the annotations that support explain some of the language and lingo. You consistently have to refer to the family tree posted in the beginning of the book to hold all the relatives straight but that's what created it interesting. Each family had their own story while still connected to one another throughout the book.
Crazy Rich Asians is a novel that exposes the lives of super-rich ethnic Chinese, especially in the hothouse environment of Singapore. It is a lifestyle most can neither imagine nor (after reading Kevin Kwan's book) aspire 's a amazing old fashioned love story set in an wonderful jet-set world. The author is from the milieu he so well describes. This is a amazing read, especially for those of us needing diversions!I need to read the sequel and/or see the upcoming movie.
The True Sex Pistols. Bart Tare (John Dall) had a fascination with guns from an early age, even getting sent to a reform school at the age of 14 for yet another gun similar incident. Back home now as an adult, after a stint in the army, he falls for a sharp-shooting carnival girl called Annie Laurie Starr (Peggy Cummins) and promptly joins the act. But after a fall out with the boss, the pair hit the street and turn to a life of crime; with Annie particularly showing a thirst for gun-play. No doubt inspired by true life outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, Deadly Is the Female (AKA: Gun Crazy) is as amazing a "doomed lovers on the lam" picture that has ever been made. It may be a "B" film in terms of production, but no doubt about it, this movie is stylish, crafty and also very sexy. Directed by the unsung Joseph H. Lewis, it's based on a story written by MacKinlay Kantor that was reworked by Millard Kaufman (AKA: the then blacklisted Dalton Trumbo), into one that links sex and violence whilst simultaneously casting an eye over gun worship and its put in the American method of life. Dall & Cummings looked on the surface an odd pairing, but under Lewis' direction they go together like gun and holster (ahem). He is well spoken, almost elegantly fragile with his musings, yet underneath there is still this twitchy gun fanatic. She is savvy, almost virginal in sexuality, but ultimately she's a wild cat who's practically un-tamable. The work of Lewis here should not be understated, check out the quite sublime continuous one take bank robbery. While marvel throughout at his long takes, use of angles, deep focus and jerking camera movements; all of which dovetail with our protagonists as they go on their nihilistic journey. But perhaps his master-stoke was with his preparation strategies for his two leads? Sending them out with permission to improvise, he fired them up with sexual pep talks, and the result, in spite of the inevitable "code" restrictions, is a near masterpiece, a real genre highlight, and a movie that continues to influence as much as it still entertains. 9/10
