--Janet Maslin, The New York Times "It's impossible not to get sucked into this satirical novel about the jet-setting lives of an enormous busybody family and its infinite Louboutin collection."
--Glamour "There's rich, there's filthy rich, and then there's crazy rich. . . . A Pride and Prejudice-like send-up."
--People "If this isn't the funniest book so far this year, it's up there. . . . Kwan, who grew up in Singapore, skewers his subjects deftly, stylishly, and completely--but with heart."
--The Denver Post "Deliciously decadent. . . . This 48-karat beach read is crazy fun. . . . [Read] Crazy Rich Asians, on an exotic beach in super-expensive sunglasses."
--Entertainment Weekly "An unputdownably funny, original, modern novel. . . . I actually couldn't put this book down to eat or to watch Downton Abbey."
--Plum Sykes, author of Bergdorf Blondes
"Rachel's squeaky-clean naiveté is a clever foil to the intricate workings of the high-glamour Asian set around her. Chinese on the outside but all-American on the inside, she allows us to see the myriad nuances of intra-Asian culture that the novel goes to great lengths to show."
--Tash Aw, NPR "Rollicking. . . . A lively, generous story of shallow extravagance and human devotion."
--The Boston Globe "Original and fun, Crazy Rich Asians is quite a roller coaster trip. I loved it!"
--Jackie Collins, author of The Power Trip
"Delightfully soapy. . . . [Crazy Rich Asians] eats its chiffon cake and has it too, simultaneously tut-tutting many of its characters for their vapid materialism while reveling in the milieu's sybaritic excess."
--The Wall Street Journal
"As spicily adventurous and lusciously satisfying as the renowned Singaporean street food Kevin Kwan's characters argue over; hot and sizzling, like the best satay, and dreamily transporting, like everyone's favorite dessert--goreng pisang. Feast on this outrageously funny and insightful novel of modern manners, and enjoy!"
--Lisa See, author of Dreams of Joy and Shanghai Girls
"[An] instant favorite. . . . Opulence and zaniness reign."
--O, The Oprah Magazine "Like Dynasty on steroids with more private jets, bigger houses, and a lot more money."
