Description

Yet when a chance encounter with charming, wealthy entrepreneur Eric Deng offers her a glimpse of an exciting, limitless future, Andrea decides to give Mr. There were times when I really didn't like her, and at other moments, I found her utterly relatable and charming. And that sometimes the person you've been waiting for may just be the one that is right in front of you. I am unfortunately not familiar with the Singaporean culture so I loved getting a little glimpse at the family at the beginning, it really made me understand better the pressure on Andrea's life. Additionally, I've learned a lot from the heart-to-heart talks between Andrea and her closed ones when she decided to break free from family restraints and job pressure.

But let’s talk about something I do appreciate: desperately-seeking-grandchildren Mama Tang, my favorite character in the book. A lush portrayal of Singapore life filled with vibrant characters and a lovable leading lady readers will root for. This book didn't grip me straight away, as the first half of the book was very slow and painted the main character as quite unlikeable but the second half was almost like a completely different book.He has a habit of saying annoyingly posh things like “loo,” and he’s tall and conventionally, boringly attractive (golden‑brown skin that will turn ashy if not moisturized, maple‑colored eyes framed with such thick eyelashes he’ll definitely have droopy eyelids one day, a rakish mop of silky black hair that will most likely never make it past his forties, and, if I’m held at gunpoint, a rugby player physique, but only like a so‑so rugby player whose favorite food is tacos). She is the author of bestselling romcoms Last Tang Standing (2020) and more recently, Lucie Yi Is Not A Romantic (2022). They promote this book under the tag line Bridget Jones meets Crazy Rich Asians and I think that is A PERFECT description of this book. I loved a glimpse into similar struggles with dating but in a unique setting and cultural background that I know very little about. She’s also self-loathing, and engages in the kind of casual fat shaming that would be right at home in Bridget Jones’s Diary.

However, the pace really picks up in the second half, and I really enjoyed it from then on—and was sad when I got to the last page.After a promising beginning focused on family strife, Last Tang Standing turns its attention to Andrea’s love life, and that’s where it fails to deliver. Beyond that, there were some unforgivable bits that sucked away all the enjoyment that I had for this. Lauren Ho's Last Tang Standing is marketed as Crazy Rich Asians meets Bridget Jones's Diary, and that is in fact correct, dear readers!

That was annoying because this is a traditionally published book and it is not an ARC, so you expect a certain level of quality from books of this nature. Andrea also doesn't expect to find herself laughing and hanging out with her office mate, Suresh, who is her top rival for the position of partner and enjoying it more than every date the apps have matched her with. There's a paragraph about her having nightmare's about telling her mother about getting Bs on exams that I related to considerably.
