Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians #1)Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I heard about this novel on a book review list I’m on and decided to take a stab at it. I had just completed a pretty dense read and needed something to lighten my mind. This first book of three did the job, hands down!

I’m guessing through my own ignorance, I had never even imagined looking for a story with a funny take on the Asian experience. Through Kevin Kwan’s take, I found that his characters are relatable, hilarious and complicated.

Through this unassuming and gut-busting story, the author slowly lures you into the true essence of this book – this is not an Asian story but a human story. For that reason alone, I highly suggest you take some time to become acquainted with these characters. I promise you won’t be sorry you did!
