Packaged together for the first time, the internationally bestselling Crazy Rich Asians series reveals the outrageous world of high net worth society with humor and heart.

New Yorker Rachel Chu does not know that her loving boyfriend, Nicholas Young, also happens to be Singapore's most eligible bachelor and likely heir to a massive fortune. So when she agrees to spend the summer in Nick's home, her life unexpectedly becomes an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers. And that's all before she discovers the true identity of her long-lost father . . .
KEVIN KWAN is the author of the international bestsellers Crazy Rich Asians (now a major motion picture), China Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems. Born in Singapore, he now lives in New Mexico.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Sassy and Fun I loved the movie so I decided to read the books. Although the books differed a bit from the first movie; I hope there will be more movies to go along with the book trilogy. They're sassy and fun to read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It may be Cliché, but that's a-okay! I picked up this book because I saw the film and really enjoyed - and can I just say the book blew me away! I read all three before drafting my review and I'm still full of so many thoughts that I don't know where to begin. Critiques are as a good a place as any to start I suppose. 1. Kwan talks about the clothes, food, and decor a lot! I realize this is to show the crazy rich-ness of the characters but it got rather repetitive to read dress descriptions over and over again. 2. While the footnotes were very interesting and I loved all the facts and translations, the footnotes did bring me out of the story. I got frustrated having to scan down to the end of the page or chapter to see what something meant. 3. Some parts of the books are filthy! Some of the language used was harsh and NSFW, which I wasn't expecting. This isn't really a critique, just more of a warning - if the c-word makes you squirmy this may not be the book for you. 4. The point of view changes rapid fire, which can get a bit confusing. Along with the crazy family tree, keeping track of all the characters was tricky. I wish Kwan had included a family tree or relationship guide in the front of the book to refer back to. Now, to end on a high note. Here's what I loved! 1. The characters were amazingly diverse. While pretty much all the characters were Asian, they were each different and unique. They were not stereotyped or turned into a joke because of their Asian-ness. 2. I was consistently on the edge of my seat! I could not put the book down, I was so excited to read what was going to happen next, what crazy things these "richer than god" people were going to do next. While some of the subplots weren't the most interesting, the main plotlines were interesting enough to keep me reading the more boring parts. 3. Kitty Pong. I didn't think I was going to like Kitty, but I was blown away by this character. Not in that I liked her per say, but that I was fascinated by what she was going to do next. 4. I was left wanting more. Enough said. 5. The time between each book (2 years) was a really cool choice made by Kwan. I didn't think I'd like that, I didn't want to miss out on anything that happened to these characters but Kwan executed this perfectly. All in all, the Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy was a fantastic read and I can only hope that the film franchise (though already taken some liberties) will hit the mark. (First all Asian cast in 25 years, sort of a big deal). As always, the book was better than the film, so give these books a try. They're definitely a fun and wild ride!
