    Engaging but ultimately unbelievable

    This story, sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, includes many of the same characters, two years later. It is a compelling, gossipy story that is hard to put down, and it has quite a different perspective from what I'm used to reading. Without telling too much of the story, the book still focuses on Rachel and Nick as the carriers of the storyline (and to a lesser degree, Astrid and Michael). However, what made each of these characters sort of unique in the first book all kind of disappeared in this book. Rachel, often complimented for her "being so different from the other girls" and "being so American" in this book doesn't come off as a convincing down-to-earth Californian New Yorker, rather a slightly different Singaporean; Nick never really does come across as the "Duke" that he is said to hold himself like; the forces acting on Astrid to change don't really match the tremendous change that her character seems to have gone through (or maybe her character never was properly established in the first book?); and Michael becomes irrational in a way that doesn't support the concept of him as a successful business person. I understand that this book is supposed to show how money changes people over time, but in the end, the characters evolved from somewhat understandable people into people convenient to fit the story. I liked the story, but there is more to be done in the development of the characters and explanation of how they change with the world that is constructed for them here.

    Excellent

    Enjoyed it even more than Crazy Rich Asians which is really saying something. Good story, fascinating information, written in an interesting and easy read style. Humorous. Love it. Want the third book - really, really soon.

    Super fun

    A fun summer read! Worth reading the first book to start as it inroduces rhe characters. This is pretty salacious but total page turner.

    Great read!

    It's quite catchy, and very easy to relate to, being Asian myself! I liked the end, it all comes together, but I still wish I could read more about Nick and Rachel!
