    • 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 .
    • If you are looking for a story that flows and entertains without insulting your intelligence, I recommend this book (and probably the other two in this series...I'm in the middle of the second one). Not only is the story well written and crafted, I was on Google all the time to see some of the items in the book (paintings, jewelry, locations) that I have not been exposed to. Good, fun read.
    • I absolutely loved this book and of course must start by saying that you really need to read "Crazy Rich Asians" (Book One) before you even pick this up because some of the more subtle story lines will fall flat without that back drop. Above everything else, what I appreciated the most was that this mini series actually provided resolution to the most important stories.There were some characters from the first book who fizzled away without explanation, and a couple of twists that seemed to come out of left field, but none of that changed the fact that I devoured this 400+ page book and enjoyed every minute of it.
    • What bothers me the most is Kwan's misrepresentation of academics in the books, including Crazy Rich Asians. The author romanticizes academic life too much. In the books, Rachel and Nick, tenure-track assistant professors, seem to have lots of leisure time in the summer and in the spring break. Normal academics, including tenured professor, often spend their summers and spring break to catch up with what they have not had time to finish in research or grading or to do what they want to initiate in research. Based on the behaviors of Rachel and Nick, they would lose their jobs by the end of the third year or the end of their sixth year. In the movie, Crazy Rich Asians, Rachel was wearing a tank-top to teach. She would have been warned if this scene happened at a real university.In China Rich Girlfriend, the background of Bao and his family history are questionable. It is impossible for Bao's dad to be a billionaire tycoon in China even in the 1990s because every business was state-owned. I suggest the author so some real research before putting this type of trash in the book.
