THIS BOOK I COULD OVERLOOK THE DULL MAIN CHARACTERS book I overlook the dull main characters Crusader conspiracy Banner books hints of family drama and maneuvering that never went anywhere the randomly dropped storylines all of that I could forgive becauseey at the end of the day Crazy Rich Asians is mindless fluff and thinking is contraindicated when reading mindless fluff This mindless fluff set among the ber wealthy denizens of Singapore was entertainingBut The Book of Earths: Hollow Earth, Ancient Maps, Atlantis, and Other Theories (Forgotten Books) here s the thing part of why I like mindless fluff part of why I keep reading it despite plotoles and ridiculous unrealistic twists that drive me nuts is that I m guaranteed an ending An An English Translation of Fa Tsangs Commentary on the Awakening of Faith honest to goodness usuallyappy ending This book Gauntlet A Novel of International Intrigue has no ending What s the point of reading mindless fluff without the satisfy I think another Goodreads reviewer said it best Shallow characters don t mean shallowly written charactersAnd in the case of this book the author didn t pick up on that memo Shallow characters can be delightfully wickedly compelling when they re written well I mean look at Anthony and Gloria in Fitzgerald s The Beautiful and Damned or Becky Sharp in Vanity Fair oreck even Blair Waldorf in the Gossip Girl series if you re looking at chick lit examples But the characters in Crazy Rich Asians are so two dimensional and flat you just can t care about them Also a pet peeve of mine is when a writer TELLS me something rather than SHOWS me something This entire book is all tell no show Except to show off the author s knowledge of designer labels Slow clapYes this is a rather scathing review but I really don t understand all the The University of Chicago Spanish English English Spanish Dictionary hype surrounding this book and I wasoping for well substance yes from a glittery gold and I magnifici dieci hot pinkbook called Crazy Rich Asians I know But I think the setting and charactersad some originality timely relevance and promise and the author didn t deliver Definitely disappointed nothing like a bunch of crazy rich asians to make me feel like a boring poor white girl gosh this book is wild its a story lush in couture and drama and private jets and drama and money than one even knows what to do with oh and did i mention the drama its basically igh class catty gossip and i am ere for it such a funny and entertaining story that deserves all the attention its been getting recently also i do think its worth mentioning that i saw the film before i read this and i know i am committing blasphemy by admitting it but i actually think i prefer the film not that the book isnt good i just think that when it comes to a certain level of cattiness and gossip amongst 20 characters where body language and looks are significant its much easier to translate across a screen and effective for the story it also elps to see a visual of all the luxury to really get an idea of the type of wealth that is exhibited in the novel so i ighly recommend the movie the book too but definitely the movie 4 stars Anyone else super excited for the movie to come outI saw the trailer about a dozen times and I decided that instead of eating my fingers while waiting for it to An Excellent conceited Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet hit the cinemas I would read the bookBest decision ever This is one of those instances where I recommend reading the book before watching the movie There is aumongous amount of characters introduced and so by reading about them first you ll be able to spot them easily in the movie and thus enjoy their crazy personalities Though I m not sure just Ruhestand fr Einsteiger how much from this first book the movie contains because those were some packed juicy fourundred pages The movie would be ten ours long if everything were includedIt s so addictive There are at least five subplots and as mentioned many people to meet Nick s mother is as expected demanding but she s not the only one who disapproves of is girlfriend Rachel At least 95% of Farmer Boy his entourage wanter goneThere s also Astrid Nick s cousin who is very important in the story She s my favourite character Rachel is very lovely but Random House Webster's College Dictionary: 1996 Graduation Promotion her story is rather predictable as opposed to Astrid s situation She s one of those rare rich people who don t care to boast about the amount of money they possess It s absolutely unputdownable A real page.

STARS I M DOING ITEVERYONE IGNOREI M DOING ITEVERYONE IGNORE FACT THAT I M DOING IT YEARS TOO LATE AND FOCUS ON THE FACT THAT I M DOING IT Turning Points in Australian History how to be a bad bookworm watch the movie without reading the book wait 4 months add the book to your TBR once you can no longer resistopping on the bandwagon This was a really fun read I went into it with the intention of consuming it just for entertainment purposes and not ualitydepth which I think is the best mindset to read this story in CW racial omophobia slurs talk of cheating prejudiceclassismI did love the writing style of this novel which I expected before going in The syntax was fairly weak and the voice of individual characters was not that strong Also regarding the characters the author as this Let Dai Vol 8 habit of jumping between perspectives without warning Each chapter begins with a description of what character point of views will be followed but throughout the chapter but it changes freuently with no distinction For example a conversation may begin from Rachel s perspective and describeer thoughts and internal reactions but two lines later without any indication we will be in Astrid s ead Of course multiple perspectives are commonly featured in fiction especially in third person narratives but the lack of structure and awareness for the reader was uite jarring and nonsensical Crazy Rich Asians is absolutely a plot based series You read it to follow these uniue characters across this absurd journey of wealth extravagance and drama I will add that I particularly enjoyed the eavily influence of Chinese and Singaporean culture albeit the wealthy side of that culture because it is not something I am freuently exposed to It s fun entertaining and gripping I did not expect to be as invested as I wasI m not particularly taken with many of the characters although I see their individual value to the story Rachel was obviously the most enjoyable character of the story and I did end up really liking Nick though I remained furious at Hoodwinked howe andled exposing Rachel to is family situation for the entirety of the story I Best Practices In Leading The Global Workforce have sympathy for Astrid and enjoyed the comic relief added by Peik Lin and Charlie Though this is not the most ground breaking cast of characters I ve ever read I can see myself becoming invested in their lives as the series progressesI really enjoyed my time reading Crazy Rich Asians I initially went into this book thinking I would be satisfied reading just the first installment and not finishing the series but after finishing I absolutely need to know where the story goes If you re a trashy fiction lover this book is for you Imagine wanting to marry a girl from such a family So disgraceful Really Nicky what would Gong Gong say ife was alive Madri this tea needs a little sugar This is some seriously trashy crack lit And no that s not a typo this book is as addictive and dramatic and ridiculous as you surely imagine it to be I should probably ate it but well oopsYou ve definitely got to be in the mood for it or you ll wonder why you re actively murdering your brain cells And I guess I was definitely in the mood for it Crazy Rich Asians follows the drama and scandals of some of East Asia s wealthiest families Think filthy stinking rich mansions private planes 25000 dresses I didn t even know such a thing existed etc It s opulent it s melodramatic and it s completely nuts This bunch of wealthy families all come together in Singapore for an extravagant fairy tale wedding But the wedding is the very least of the drama Nicholas Nicky Young who as been living in New York is about to bring Sloane Monroe SeriesBooks 4 5 his American born girlfriend Rachel Chu to meetis parents for the first time and Vida de perros his mother is almost certainly going to dig up some nastiness when she runs a background check on Rachel s family Also Rachelas no clue Oeuvres de Ennius Quirinus Visconti, Vol. 3 how rich Nicky isell is she in for a shockThen there s the beautiful Astrid whose The Mobius Twist, Alien Abduction and Judgement of the Human Race husband is probablyaving an affair and she is about to go investigating to find out Plus there s a bunch of other subplots about what these ridiculously rich people get up to It is like the Asian version of all those terrible eighties soap operas like Dallas and Dynasty and I say terrible but I totally used to watch reruns of those with my mum tooI don t know why I liked it I just did Maybe it s because I m nosy and enjoy the drama of other people s lives Maybe it s because these superficial rich people problems are an enjoyable break from the real world Maybe it s because it does exactly what it says on the label Maybe I just ave terrible taste Well like I said oopsBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube.
