Book Review: Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan.

Crazy Rich AsiansCrazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Though it lacked an elegant writing style, Crazy Rich Asians was funny, thrilling, and some what suspenseful. It could have easily been a Chinese or Korean drama. The characters were at first pretty 2D and Rachel’s boyfriend Nick was too perfect. It took nearly half the book to find a character flawin him. Though character development was slow, it did progress faster towards the end. I really enjoyed the detail the author gave about how these rich people lived their lives. Everything from their fancy hand bags to debates over the best coffee (seemingly best in Australia).

The side characters give the story its charm and appeal while the main characters are relatable and easy to like given the antagonists. There are a few twists and turns in the plot, but mostly it’s hilarious fun. I haven’t had a book make me laugh in such a while. Great read and can’t wait to start the next book.
