From the bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians (Now a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE) comes a deliciously fun story of family, fortune, and fame in Mainland China.
Book Two of the Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy
It’s the eve of Rachel Chu’s wedding, and she should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond, a wedding dress she loves, and a fiancé willing to thwart his meddling relatives and give up one of the biggest fortunes in Asia in order to marry her. Still, Rachel mourns the fact that her birthfather, a man she never knew, won’t be there to walk her down the aisle.
Then a chance accident reveals his identity. Suddenly, Rachel is drawn into a dizzying world of Shanghai splendor, a world where people attend church in a penthouse, where exotic cars race down the boulevard, and where people aren’t just crazy rich … they’re China rich.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Hand-pulled noodles topped with lobster. Diamonds the size of meatballs. Enough luxury brand names to fill a penthouse apartment. A department store’s worth of snarky putdowns and high drama. Like his bestselling debut, Crazy Rich Asians, Kevin Kwan’s second novel is delirious fun with a side of nighttime soap opera. While China Rich Girlfriend revolves around the same characters as the earlier book—primarily NYU professor Nick Young, the scion of one of the wealthiest families in Asia, and his American-born girlfriend, Rachel Chu—anyone can jump right into this modern-day farce and have a ball.

I am just halfway to the book and unfortunately i cannot finish it as i have to go to sleep. But so far i am very amused and happy with the story. Not a boring page yet...and i cant wait to finish it all tomorrow.
The narrator pronounced half the things wrong in French and English. She couldn’t pin one English accent down properly and it was too difficult to listen to. I couldn’t help but cringe when she would be in and out of an accent in a sentence and then say five things incorrectly. She even said a word in French wrong that the way she pronounced it meant something else with alarming meaning.
Easy and entertaining read
I actually like this sequel better than the first book in the trilogy. There was more action and drama in this book and I liked that it was a quick, easy read.
