When I saw my brother post on Facebook that he’d bought this book in the airport on his way to Hong Kong for his summer internship I rolled my eyes and said “Of course he bought that book. He thinks he’s a rich Asian and our family is definitely crazy.”
When he came back from HK and gave me the book demanding that I read it I happened to be between Regency Romance boxed sets I keep buying for my Kindle on Amazon for the week and decided what the heck, let’s do this. I brought the book with me on my cross-country train right this fall and since then the book have been passed through no less than 5 other people and all of them have absolutely loved the book (myself included). The demand to read this book has risen so high I’ve had to order additional copies in time for Christmas.
So here I am, hawking this awesomeness here to all of you. Even if you aren’t some form of Asian descent I’ve been assured you will like it as well. There have been confirmed rumors of a movie version forthcoming so you’d better read it now if you want to be cool ahead of the crowd. We’re also super looking forward to the sequel coming out in June 2015.
“Crazy Rich Asians” by Kevin Kwan (I’ve never seen this alternate view on Amazon before… Good to know the book is the right size to fit in your personal item for air travel)
