Description

A hilarious and heartwarming New York Times bestselling novelnow a major motion picture!
 
“This 48-karat beach read is crazy fun.” —Entertainment Weekly

When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.
 
On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

    If you are looking for a story about a couple falling in love and fighting for it, this is not it. I think the last couple of chapters were the most interesting, but it is still anticlimactic with no real point to the book. I chose not to read on to the next book. It was not to my taste at least.
  • Amazing!!

    I don't have a problem with the book being light and airy. The writing is a bit stilted, but that doesn't bother me, either. I didn't buy it because I thought it was going to be a retelling of Genghis Khan as told to Shakespeare. I was looking for a frothy read, and I found it. What DOES bother me is that the footnotes are placed at the END of each chapter, not on the same page as the words or phrases they elucidate. The elucidations do me no good at all! If the footnotes MUST be placed at the end, maybe it would be better to at least repeat the word or phrase in question to remind the reader which one it is?!
  • Can’t believe this is a movie?

    I read this because my book club selected it, but I can’t believe they’ve made a movie out of this? Nothing unique or original. A bad soap opera only more trite, shallow and predictable!
  • Great Read!
