Crazy Rich Asians

Earlier this week I finished Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan. This fictional story follows American Rachel Chu and her boyfriend Nicolas Young from Singapore. Nick invites his girlfriend to his best friends wedding back home which is to be the event of the year. Nick fails to warn Rachel about his family, friends, and their way of life. To say they are crazy rich is an understatement. Rachel doesn't realize that she arrives to Singapore with a target on her back because she is dating one of the richest and most eligible bachelors.  Quickly, Rachel is overwhelmed by the money, the lifestyle, and the old world traditions.  
I thought the book was a little slow to begin with but I eventually got into the book and really enjoyed imagining all the opulence and getting caught up in the drama.
