Elena Yes. There are too many characters and events that would make reading the books out of order very confusing.

Sometimes you just want to read a book so entertaining like a soap opera that you can't stop turning the pages. This is one of those books.

I decided to review the whole trilogy at once because I really didn't know how I felt about them until the end. Kevin Kwan deserves a hand though for writing a trilogy that while fun and entertaining also educates us Westerners about customs, thought patterns, and history that most of us know nothing about. I really enjoyed the commentary that explain Hokkein phrases, dishes that were mentioned, songs sung at boarding schools, which schools are the best etc.

Book 1 down, prefer to see a movie about a book by first reading it. Though now I have zero interest. A classic Cinderella story though the gap of a PHD profession who acted like a 18 years old when meeting all the old riches just don’t make sense to me. How could a 30-some economist be surprised by fact that 1% of the population is controlling 60% of the world’s wealth, she should be able to make intelligent understanding and remarks of all the people and their associated companies and how they ...more

I was going to over analyze my rating but what can I say? I loved all of these books. I couldn’t put them down. Fun stories, I ate them up.

– Crazy Rich Asians is a crazy ride with a cool heroine –

I picked up the Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy craving an escape into the lives of the filthy, fabulously rich and was not disappointed! Rooting for college professor Rachel and her relationship with soul mate Nick kept me turning pages long into the night.

Rachel Chu is expecting your standard meet-the-parents trip. She has no idea that her beau is heir to one of Singapore’s biggest fortunes! After a first-class ride from New York to Singapore,

Cave! This trilogy has a high addiction potential.. I started with the first book having a little expectation, merely as an entertainment for a go-to bed book. But well, I just couldn‘t stop reading until I got through all three books within 4 days. These books are highly entertaining but not more. The lifestyles of the rich people can be quite apalling. But in the end most of the people would realize that happiness doesn‘t always come along with money.

Great fun. As a Singaporean the characters are highly relatable, many are thinly veiled personas of actual real persons or institutions.

There’s rich, there’s filthy rich and then there’s crazy rich…

You know the feeling when you finish reading a series and you immediately want to re-read it? Yeah, same here!

It’s impossible not to get sucked into this series. Crazy Rich Asians trilogy is quiet a roller coaster trip. Everything about these novels was amazing, the plot and concept, so original and fun to read, the characters (especially Nick, Rachel, Astrid and Charlie are my favorites and I could still do without Kitty Pong/Bing),

Read the whole trilogy. Some musings: 1. I was constantly hungry while reading these books. The descriptions of the food were tantalizing beyond belief. I must head for the nearest Chinese restaurant soon! 2. What a waste of money!! Twenty million for some reno, 1.5 million for some jewelry that they already have a king’s ransom of. Sure they employ one or two people to paint a ceiling but how many more could they have helped. Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are filthy rich too but they have ...more

Such a boring triology. Astrid and Charlie are the only saviors for this boring, nothing-interesting clumsy cliché series.

A lot of the designer, brand name dropping was lost on me, but a fun read. Hard to imagine people really living that way. I enjoyed the author's little asides in the notes at the end of each chapter.

mediocre, trashy fun. read for the scandal, don't read for character development or for an authentic Chinese American experience (but what do I know, I still shop clearance)

The plot was great, but I am not going to lie, I'm glad it over. Trudging through all the rich people bullshit, to get to the good stuff, was exhausting. It was amusing enough though!

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 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

“Crazy Rich Asians” wasn’t a book I would have picked out in the store to read myself; however, my mother handed me a copy at her house and said “You have to read this”! I ended up reading the whole series and finding it very entertaining. Although there are more references to name brands, designers and money in these than I ever needed to see in my life, I could totally imagine the underlying family prejudices, intricacies, and maneuverings. The books also highlight the shallowness that can ...more

I reread Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend after reading Rich People Problems largely to get the more minor characters straight and their actions. Must hand it to Kwan. He's written an entertaining and humorous saga. One doesn't find this kind of humor in books written by Asians and Kwan has an acute eye for the outrageous activities of his crazy rich Asians: who else would have get an eye job for a $200,000 dragon fish? Also like the fashion references--not the standard predictable ...more

Great ending

It’s not often I find a book I can binge-read, but I was hooked from the start of this trilogy and did not want to stop the luxurious, globetrotting, whirlwind adventure. The final saga had the same dramatic twists and turns as the first two, including some intriguing glimpses backward in time, and wrapped up each individual's story in a very satisfying way as the new generation of Singaporean power players contributed to the legacy of Tyersall Park. 4/5
After seeing the movie, I proceeded to read the books by Kevin Kwan. At times paragraphs were just promotional support for various luxury brands, but at other times the over-the-top set-ups were truly amusing. The perfect summer read.

Factually wrong in some places but a good holiday read

Nice easy holiday read but some facts are wrongly placed whether rich or not. Good efforts by the author to link up the friction

The story and drama was great but the author seemed to have trouble completing the stories. The books would end with a random scene out of nowhere to try to tie up loose ends.

It was a delightful series, I have to admit. So much so, that I am actually taking the time to review it, which never happens. Reading about people spending more money than you could probably make in a lifetime is certainly interesting, if not a little bizarre.

What I enjoyed about this series:
1. I ended up getting attached to some of the characters, (view spoiler)

All three are over-the-top delicious! The rich ARE different, and the rich are CRAZY! I thoroughly enjoyed all three. The first introduces the rich boy who takes his unsuspecting girlfriend home to Singapore when he is best man in a friend's wedding. There are several intermarried families, creating a dynasty of rich people, some of whom avoid the limelight and never discuss and try not to show their enormous wealth. Others talk only about money, clothing designers, fancy cars, staff, ...more

These books were such a fun read!!! The drama was a roller coaster ride. There were points were I just stopped and was like WHATTTTTT!!!! The drama was soap opera esque. Very funny. It really made me laugh. I enjoyed the multiple POV chapters. You get to see the story in so many POV that brings to light motivations and feelings of certain characters in relation to others that blends really well. It made me really root for characters say in book 2 that weren’t as big on my radar or I didn’t care ...more

First of all, the Asian representation. Second of all, the trilogy is absolutely hilarious. Some of the characters are so over the top and others are much more realistic. At the same time, you could see how the characters grow and change. While I tend to gravitate towards fantasy novels, I have to say these books are among my favorites. They were just so fun to read and I'll definitely be rereading them sometime soon.

I listened to the series as audio books.... The voice of the person telling the story got on my nerves sometimes. She just sounded happy all the time! The first book was definitely the best, but these books were more of something to half listen to. They were not unique stories and I kept thinking about the character's "problems" and greed compared to how the rest of the world lives. During the third book, I think I actually felt my brain disintegrating a little bit... I was by far the worst of ...more

These books were amazing-kept me engaged and interested the whole time. They're super fun and give insight into the frivolous lifestyle of these "crazy rich asians". With likable characters like Nick, Rachel, Peik Lin, and Astrid, it's impossible not to want to read more about each of their stories. I also love how this book switches between perspectives of multiple people, shedding light on all aspects of the story. And of course, who doesn't love a happy ending? I recommend these books to ...more
