Fun read, Cinderella meets West Side Story in modern day Singapore among the richest of the rich. Except the reality is far more complicated, when old values which seemed to stand up to the test of time does not, and new values which seemed impossibly vulgar at first turns out to be the more honest and sincere. Some of the characters and dialogues seem too simple and a tad cheesy, but that's okay. The author's deft comic touch and his ability to poke fun at both sides is what sets this book apart.
Fun, romantic and sad tale as two young Asian couples faced extreme social pressure and obstacles in their matrimony. Enjoyed the descriptions on the audacious clothing, food and homes of the ultra rich Chinese descendants of old family fortunes in Singapore. Love the ending love story of the third couple and possibility of happiness for two young couples ahead.

Crazy Rich Asians
I'm currently listening to this audiobook. It's funny and rich in character and relationships, but there are so many characters it's a little confusing at this point.
Crazy Rich Asians
This book is a treat with an scintillating analysis from an insider of the intensely wealthy world of the Chinese millionaire set. Grounded in actual settings in Asia with references to global travel, high fashion and snobby upperclass attitudes of contemporary Chinese high society, this book is a slice of delicious fun. Recommend for any beach bag as perfect light read!
