Book: Crazy Rich Asians
Author: Kevin Kwan
Release Date: June 11th, 2013
A lil helpful breakdown of Crazy Rich Asians, so that other people like me who were curious about the hype don’t have to be let down by the absolute pathetic-ness that this book was.
Some white hotel dude
Felicity Young to racist dude
Nick to Rachel
What Nick SHOULD HAVE told Rachel
What Nick actually did
The entire Singapore when they find out Nick is bringing a date for his best friend’s wedding
when Nick books her a ticket in first class
Rachel when her boyfriend welcomes her to a mansion
Rachel when she finds out her boyfriend’s best friend is a millionaire
Rachel when she finally finds out her boyfriend is rich
Fransesca’s pathetic attempts to be scathing throughout the book
Rachel when all the rich people get snooty during the bachelorette party
After meeting Rachel, Nick’s family towards Rachel behind her back
But to her face
Rachel finally comes to her senses and realises that family ain’t worth it
Some more unnecessary drama
Nick finally realising his family is full of assholes
And finally- The End
All in all, the shallowly written characters, basic plot, and pretty awful writing left a lot left wanting. I still haven’t seen the movie, so I pray to god that it’s better, but ohmygod pls don’t bother with the book. It was an easy read, I’ll give it that- I breezed through, and while reading it, it didn’t seem that bad. But once I actually finished it and tried thinking about what I liked, I came out blank, so.
That’s my review! i couldn’t bother with full sentences for this one, and making a gif review proved to be surprisingly fun, so there you go! Have you read the book/watched the movie? What did you think? Tell me in the comments!
thanks for reading!
