China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan

China Rich Girlfriend: A Novel - Kevin Kwan

There really are too many storylines for me to write a coherent description. When I requested this, I didn't realize it was a second in a series. If you haven't read Crazy Rich Asians yet, go and read it before starting this. If you don't you'll be completely lost. I went back and read CRA, loved it, and was very happy to already have this on hand. 

 

China Rich Girlfriend picks up the stories right where CRA ends and introduces a few new characters. Kwan's writing style and characters are enjoyable. These books do technically have main characters, but most of the POVs get equal time. Kwan was able to make each characters distinctive and unique. In a book with so many characters, that had to have been quite a challenge. Do you watch K or J Dramas? If so, you'll be used to the over the top corniness and drama that unfolds in this book. I think that's why I loved it so much. This isn't my normal genre, but it sounded just like a K-Drama in book form, and it did not disappoint. 

 

A few of the POVs were left with a unfinished feel to them, and that is what keeps me from giving this four stars. If a third book or novella comes out to tie up the few loose ends, I will definitely come back and up my rating for this title.
