Praise for Crazy Rich Asians:
• "Over-the-top funny and a novelty to boot. . . . Kwan delivers nonstop hoots about a whole new breed of rich, vulgar, brand-name-dropping conspicuous consumers, with its own delicacies, curses, vices, stereotypes and acronyms." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times
• "Crazy Rich Asians is like Dynasty on steroids with more private jets, bigger houses, and a lot more money. It is the very definition of a beach read. I finished it over a weekend and by the end was longing to see the ridiculously extravagant and over-the-top world that Mr. Kwan had created." --Michael Carl, Vanity Fair

Another problem was that I quickly realized that there are only three kinds of scenes in this book that keep repeating with different characters and settings. Scene 1: a character goes to some fancy location so the reader can gawk at the luxury along with the characters. Scene 2: Characters talk about how awful Rachel is, and trade gossip we've already heard. Scene 3: a side character has a scene unrelated to Rachel, Nick, or the main plot.
