Well-narrated audiobook (although be warned the narrator changes for the second book). This is the perfect beach read for summer: light, fluffy and gossipy. Kwan has excellent character-building, though, and the plot is meaty enough to leave you satisfied at the end.

"Finish your chicken nuggets. Don't you know children are starving in America?" Amusing bias from many directions in this story. Lots of loose ends, so I am looking forward to listening to the sequel, as well as seeing the movie, which to date is in post-production. Probably a chick flick, depending on how the screenplay alters the book. Ms. Chen did a great job reading, imitating voices, and speaking Asian dialects. I'm still trying to find out what "ah la mah" means. It is spoken often, the way English say "oh my gawd" with a snooty "can you believe it" attitude. Quick read.

Weak ending. Many loose ends....it's unfinished work.

Kind of slow at the start, but heats up later on!

This is an enjoyable beach read--not a lot of depth, but not so dumb that it kills the fun. I liked reading about the romance & conflicts between people in a long-term relationship rather than a couple who just met for a change. Talented actress Lynn Chen, the audiobook reader, brings the characters to life and makes the humor sing. I definitely enjoyed her rendition more than I would have if I read the book on my own.

Scads of fun. Thoroughly enjoyable as a light chick read. It took me a while to warm to the voice of the reader, but eventually I was seduced. The Markham Public Library copy of the talking book had no issues with skipping, etc.
