Introduction

Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians, is back with a wickedly funny new novel of social climbing, secret e-mails, art-world scandal, lovesick billionaires, and the outrageous story of what happens when Rachel Chu, engaged to marry Asia's most eligible bachelor, discovers her birthfather.
 

     On the eve of her wedding to Nicholas Young, heir to one of the greatest fortunes in Asia, Rachel should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond from JAR, a wedding dress she loves more than anything found in the salons of Paris, and a fiancé willing to sacrifice his entire inheritance in order to marry her. But Rachel still mourns the fact that her birthfather, a man she never knew, won't be able to walk her down the aisle. Until: a shocking revelation draws Rachel into a world of Shanghai splendor beyond anything she has ever imagined. Here we meet Carlton, a Ferrari-crashing bad boy known for Prince Harry-like antics; Colette, a celebrity girlfriend chased by fevered paparazzi; and the man Rachel has spent her entire life waiting to meet: her father. Meanwhile, Singapore's It Girl, Astrid Leong, is shocked to discover that there is a downside to having a newly minted tech billionaire husband. A romp through Asia's most exclusive clubs, auction houses, and estates, China Rich Girlfriend brings us into the elite circles of Mainland China, introducing a captivating cast of characters, and offering an inside glimpse at what it's like to be gloriously, crazily, China-rich.

Discussion Questions

Suggested by Members

Several characters portray themselves as altruistic, but actually have hidden agendas. Discuss some of these situations.
In your opinion, Did Roxanne take actions on her own, or was she follow directions of her employer? Were Collette's actions to protect Carlton any worse than those of his mother?
Carlton had wreckless immature behavior as the story began. Did he redeem himself to his father? Did he demonstrate greater maturity by the end of the story? Do you think Rachel will get sucked into the Crazy Rich lifestyle?

  "Crazy Detail "by ccroft78248 (see profile) 08/12/15

This was an interesting book with an over the top look into the Crazy Rich World of jet-setting people from Asian countries. It is difficult to get through all the detail, but the last chapters are full... (read more)
