NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A Good Morning America Book Club Pick
 
The author of the New York Times bestselling phenomenon Crazy Rich Asians takes you from Capri to NYC, where Lucie Tang Churchill finds herself torn between two men—and two very different cultures.

On her very first morning on the jewel-like island of Capri, Lucie Churchill sets eyes on George Zao and she instantly can't stand him. She can't stand it when he gallantly offers to trade hotel rooms with her so that she can have a view of the Tyrrhenian Sea, she can't stand that he knows more about Casa Malaparte than she does, and she really can't stand it when he kisses her in the darkness of the ancient ruins of a Roman villa and they are caught by her snobbish, disapproving cousin Charlotte.

The daughter of an American-born Chinese mother and a blue-blooded New York father, Lucie has always sublimated the Asian side of herself in favor of the white side, and she adamantly denies having feelings for George. But several years later, when George unexpectedly appears in East Hampton, where Lucie is weekending with her new fiancé, Lucie finds herself drawn to George again. Soon, Lucie is spinning a web of deceit that involves her family, her fiancé, the co-op board of her Fifth Avenue apartment building, and, ultimately, herself as she tries mightily to deny George entry into her world—and her heart. Moving between summer playgrounds of privilege, peppered with decadent food and extravagant fashion, Sex and Vanity is a truly modern love story, a daring homage to A Room with a View, and a brilliantly funny comedy of manners set between two cultures.

Great ReadGreat romance full of drama, adventure, grief, and of course a great ending!.Score: 5/5

BlandWas not up to par with previous works. Lucie was annoying as she could not make up her mind about the simplest of things. Really disappointed after the other books. Before I buy another, I’ll pre-read for free..Score: 1/5

Fun, fun, but differentIt was super fun, but not quite Crazy Rich Asians fun. Just seemed to try a little too hard. Lucie was also a little boring, just saying..Score: 3/5

Enjoyed from Beginning to EndI laughed out loud. I empathized with the characters. I had a hard time putting the book down. I’m so glad I bought this book. Enjoy!.Score: 5/5

E.M. Forester Rip-OffI was very disappointed in this book. Although it’s supposedly an update to Room with a View, it’s very original. Even the characters names are the same. It’s so close to the plot of the original, that there are no surprises. The book is full of detailed and boring descriptions of conspicuous consumption at its most vulgar. For one who is a true fan of the original Room with a View, this is a sad and tawdry little rip-off of a charming and beautifully written classic. I won’t be reading anymore of Kevin Kwan’s silly novels until he learns to create plots and characters of his own, instead of cannabalizing the work of true artists..Score: 2/5

Meh...Understandably anything following the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy would be a hard act to follow, but I have to admit I’m disappointed in with Sex and Vanity. It’s SO similar to A Room With A View; it doesn’t feel like a new or remotely original work of fiction... merely just a 21st century update. I love Kevin Kwan but this book left a lot to be desired..Score: 3/5

Fun read!Enjoyed this latest book—a modern take on Pride and Prejudice..Score: 4/5
