Thoughts on Crazy Rich Asians?
Lots of fun! Great satire with some well-drawn characters!
Tried to like it but truly not worth my reading time
I loved it! I listened to the audio while reading the book and then watched the movie. Fun!
I enjoyed it. I’m getting ready to start book 3.
How was book 2?
Cotton candy read, fluffy and fun but not much substance. I realize it’s the first of a series but Kwan did a poor job with the ending, imo.
I really enjoyed it. Going to read book 2 soon.
Loved the whole series – not a literary masterpiece but a very enjoyable read.
Didn’t read the book but the movie was lame.
Book 2 was ok, book 3 stupic
The audiobooks are entertaining. Reminds me of Bonfire if the Vanities.
Read all 3. Loved the first one the best. Drama filled fun
Delightful and fun! I haven’t read the book yet but I enjoyed the movie.
Just started this book today!
A fun read!!
Am still on hold at my library
I thoroughly enjoyed. In line for the next one
We liked it
Cute, light read. Sometimes one needs that.
I couldn’t get into it. I made it about ten pages and realized I just didn’t care about the society drama that was being set up to unfold.
@Emily I don’t mind society drama, it just has to be well written. Think Sense and Sensibility
@Emilie I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I’ve never reas Sense and Sensibility. But I do think your right, the writing style makes all the difference sometimes!
@Emily just to give you a feel of Jane Austin, this is from Pride and Prejudice, which has a better first page … “IT is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.”
I thought it was a great escapist novel that was decently written and taught me a little about a world and culture I knew nothing about. I like the occasional book about the rich and carefree.
Loved all three! A fun read – not impactful, thought provoking or deep, but just any easy and entertaining escape from all the drama of real life…
Fun, light-hearted, engaging and easy to read. I finished the series in about a week or less.
Yuck. Couldn’t finish. Garbage.
I liked it
Fun. Still have the third in the trilogy to read, but I liked the first two.
Silly but fun! Compulsive reading!
Hate the writing. Couldn’t get past the second chapter. “So and so said ___, while wearing ___ because s/he felt ___ due to years of ____”
I liked the movie.
I haven’t seen the movie yet but I loved the three books.
As usual, IMHO, the book was better than the movie.
Total guilty pleasure! I binge read all three books in a week.
Thanks for all the comments guys, interesting to hear everyone’s thoughts. I just finished it. The story line wasn’t too bad but yeah, I didn’t think much of the writing. Very much from the tell don’t show school, and way too many descriptions of opulence, although I will give the benefit of the doubt and assume that was an intentional style choice, to highlight how much the characters thought of their own wealth!
Loved it and I thought the movie was even better. I’m reading the second and will read the third next.
