Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
Crazy Rich Asians obviously didn't appeal to many people and some found the display of wealth a bit too difficult to stomach. Those who had visited Singapore found some of the descriptions true to life and enjoyed taking the cultural bits, others disliked the footnote heavy format so didn't enjoy the asides so much. While gossipy and introspective of the matriarchy he lived in these 'Austinesque' plot lines didn't appeal to Austin fans who felt it didn't live up to the writing style.
Of the 10 people who had read the book the total score was 50, highs of 8 and lows of 2 it got an average of 5, possibly one of our lowest scoring books yet.
