I heard about the movie coming out so I grabbed Crazy Rich Asians the book so I could read it first. This was a fun one to read. It took me some time to get into it, but once I was about 1/4 of the way through I finished it quickly.
It was funny, light, and had some surprises at the end. I won't rush to read Kwan's other two in this series but I'll probably read them at some point when I'm looking for easy novel reading (maybe on a beach somewhere). I definitely recommend this as a vacation/beach read.
I did have a hard time keeping up with all the characters, but realized quickly that I didn't have to worry much about keeping everyone straight and where they fit in the family tree of the main characters. The book kept up with me and I was able to move through it quickly and enjoy the wit and reading about a crazy rich world.
Literacy is a prerequisite for freedom. Read deeply. Read what matters. Build a reading list. Don't take literacy for granted.
