Kevin Kwan, best-selling author of Crazy Rich Asians, is back with a wickedly funny new novel of social climbing, secret emails, 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 birth father.
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 birth father, 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.

The extravaganza moves to focus on the wealthy elite of China as Rachel meets her long lost family - and experiences a whole new spin on the rivalries of the rich and famous.
I devoured this book a lot faster than the first book, probably because there is no movie (yet) for me to constantly conpare it to.
One thing I noticed is that whilst this book retains the abundance of handy footnotes that were a staple of book 1 - they have switched from numbers to symbols in the main text and moved the footnotes from the end of the book to the end of each chapter. (This may just be a publisher difference) I preffered the number system as it was more noticable for me when my eyes were tired.
Good book though, an excellent holiday read. (Not that anyone should be going on holiday at the moment.)
The story is great, very engaging and witty from the start and very easy to get into. It’s a wonderful read for a bit of escapism and I loved the characters - they are all so well developed and there are some great bits to give you a giggle throughout the book. The story was an absolute pleasure to read and I’ve now bought book 3 in the series as I’m looking forward to seeing what they all get up to next!
If you’re looking for a bit of light-hearted escapism with a good bit of humour - definitely give it a read! :-)
It is the eve of Rachel and Nick's wedding and Rachel should be over the moon but she mourns the fact that her birth father, a man she never knew, won't be there to walk her down the aisle.
Kevin Kwan brings us another insight into the ultra rich in Asian society. I love the characters in this book and whilst I really enjoyed reading (or listening to it to be more accurate) it just lacked some clarity in certain moments.
I was looking forward to reading this after reading Sex and Vanity as it had the characters I love but it seems outrageous in the wrong ways in parts. Still an enjoyable light read but not a patch on the 1st book in the trilogy.
A continuation of the stories of the atrociously behaved Chinese families that we were introduced to in the first volume. Did not find this quite as engaging as there was less character portrayal and much more food and fashionista detail. The latter I am not really interested in, although at times the food descriptions were mouth watering.
Overall extraordinary descriptions of the extreme wealth of 'Crazy Rich Asians' with not much of a plot to hold it together.
Just worth reading for a laugh.
