* China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan

Even by the minimal standards of beach reading, China Rich Girlfriend is amazingly thin. It starts out like People on steroids, with a dozen brand names to describe each protagonists’ outfit, and the private jets, jewels, and out landing lifestyles carry it for the first few chapters. After that, the spoiled (adult) kids and their decadent parents got a little less interesting, even in a voyeuristic mode. The best part for me was the Chinese New Year’s party centered on fondling and wearing the party giver’s astounding jewelry collection. Hilarious, but pretty early in the book…
