    • Another hit from Kevin Kwan. I've read his Crazy Rich Asians books and this is the continuation of the story. There are many characters in his books but he does a great job with explaining their life story, their family and wealth they come from and their buying histories, crazy money flying around with no buyers remorse when your worth billions! Even though many may stereo type Asian people, especially the woman, the women in Kevin Kwan's books have very strong personalities which I thought funny and enjoyed reading about. You will laugh out loud at the things these characters do in the books especially the mothers of the young adults, just funny how they try to manipulate their lives. Great books, you won't be disappointed. And again, loved the footnotes as the end of each chapter explaining the Chinese/Singaporean culture and differences.
    • Very fun summer read! All of the characters in the first book, CrazyRrich Asians, and the continued nicely into this book. It is what I would call a beach read and sometimes that's all you want. It is what I would call a beach read and sometimes that's all you want I don't want to come away with his knowing that I would like to go to Asia and how beautiful all of these places sound . Also I live in an area where there is not much Chinese food so it makes me crave all of the things that I missed from where I lived before .
    • I rated this book based on how engaging and fun to read it was. It's not my usual deep philosophical tome but having grown up in the Philippines , I did have many Chinese friends and was raised by a beloved Chinese amah. I love their culture and respect for family. This book shows a very extreme culture within that people who embody the notion that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    • I LOVE this series and cannot wait for the third book to come out. When I read the first book in the series it took me a little while to adjust to the writing style of the author before I started to really love the characters and the plot. The books don't necessarily have an ending, it's more of a continuation and makes you want more. Kwan thoroughly thought out the characters and you can't help but fall in love with Rachel, Nick, and of course, Astrid (!). The second book was laid out a little differently style-wise than the first but it's easy to adjust since most of the characters are the same but there are some plot twists and new characters. Overall an awesome read!
    • I thought this was better than the first of the trilogy (Crazy Rich Asians... which I also loved.) The drama started right away and you were quickly transported into the luxury scene of some of China and Singapore’s most elite families. This is a perfect beach read. Also great any time of the year if you’re just looking for something fun and entertaining. Be sure to read the whole trilogy!
