Definitely Crazy, Definitely Rich, Definitely Crazy Rich
June 29, 2017
Rachel 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” family.
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 get through a beach read. Alas, I was wrong, but in a good 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 amazing 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 trouble 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 many 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.
