Description

A hilarious and heartwarming New York Times bestselling novel—the basis for the acclaimed major motion picture!

"There's rich, there's filthy rich, and then there's crazy rich ... A Pride and Prejudice-like send-up about an heir bringing his Chinese-American girlfriend home to meet his ancestor-obsessed family.” –PEOPLE

When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.
 
On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

Look for Kevin Kwan’s latest novel, Sex & Vanity!

    I wish I read it before the movie! Either way both were well done in their own ways, and of course with the book coming first I can’t be disappointed! Such a great story! Time to start the next!
  • !Amazing book!

  • Boring

    I now know more about fancy designer labels, five Star restaurants and grand living than I know anything about the characters in this book. I could only read on chapter a day because the book is so boring. You can’t keep track of who’s who and the main characters Rachael and Nick are drowned out of the story because of all the explanations of house Rich the families are. I don’t even want to read book two because book one already ruined my passion for reading.
  • Great read

    Lots of fun—great beach/plane reading. It’s similar to the film, but many of the characters have a much fuller backstory in this book.
  • Funny and entertaining!
