當Rachel Chu同意跟隨富二代男友Nicholas Young回新加坡時，她想像自己即將面對溫暖的家庭、溫馨的旅程以及和她有可能牽手一生的男人共度美好夏日時光。她沒想到的是，Nicholas家大得像宮殿，行程裡搭私人飛機的時間比汽車還多，而她身邊這位黃金單身漢也使她成為覬覦者最想拔除的眼中釘。
令人瞠目結舌的豪奢場景與匪夷所思的富人心態，《A Stone Boat》以小說的手法詼諧地搬演亞洲富豪的生活實況，同時也側寫出華人新舊世代對金錢與家庭觀的衝突和差異。（文／博客來編譯）
Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.
When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn’t know is that Nick’s family home happens to look like a palace, that she’ll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia’s most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick’s formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should--and should not--marry.
Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider’s look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich.
