Book Three of the Crazy Rich Asians Series


When Nicholas Young hears that his grandmother, Su Yi, is on her deathbed, he rushes to be by her bedside—but he's not alone. The entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe to stake claim on their matriarch’s massive fortune. With each family member vying to inherit Tyersall Park—a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore—Nicholas’s childhood home turns into a hotbed of speculation and sabotage. As her relatives fight over heirlooms, Astrid Leong is at the center of her own storm, desperately in love with her old sweetheart Charlie Wu, but tormented by her ex-husband—a man hell bent on destroying Astrid’s reputation and relationship. Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to China’s second richest man, billionaire Jack Bing, still feels second best next to her new step-daughter, famous fashionista Colette Bing. A sweeping novel that takes us from the elegantly appointed mansions of Manila to the secluded private islands in the Sulu Sea, from a kidnapping at Hong Kong’s most elite private school to a surprise marriage proposal at an Indian palace, caught on camera by the telephoto lenses of paparazzi, Kevin Kwan's hilarious, gloriously wicked new novel reveals the long-buried secrets of Asia's most privileged families and their rich people problems.

You have to have read his two previous books in order to understand the final chapter of this family! Loved the footnotes, specially the ones explaining Asian values.

Last updated on 07 May 2017 I would like to thank NetGalley, Doubleday Books, Doubleday, and Kevin Kwan for the ARC of "Rich People Problems" by Kevin Kwan for my honest review. The Genre of this book is Women's Fiction. Please note that this is the third book in a series of books by the author. I have not read the other two books. Kevin Kwan describes many of the locations in Asia, as well places in the rest of the world in a delightful, easy to visualize paradise. He describes the beautiful shades of water and landscape in such an alluring way. I appreciate the way the author describes Tyersall Park on 64 acres in Singapore, and the interior designs, as well as the architectural designs in other places. The characters are described as complex, complicated, competitive, greedy, vain, manipulative, jealous,secretive and rich. There a few characters that have integrity and flaws. The author describes all the materialistic fashions, jewelry, cars and design houses with a "NAME" that costs a fortune. Many of the characters are portrayed as shallow, and visit plastic surgeons, and live to get more and better than the others. There is jealousy and revenge. Kevin Kwan writes about Asia's most prestigious and wealthy families. Many have fortune and wealth and fancy titles. Su-Yi, the powerful and wealthy Matriarch is on her deathbed, as close and distant relatives congregate waiting to see who will inherit Tyersall Park. At the same time, the author describes the toxic relationships of various relatives and characters. Traditions, religion and expectations are discussed. This was an intriguing read, and I would recommend this to those of you that have read the other two books in the series. I would rate this book as 3.5 stars. Happy Reading!

Meh. 2.5 stars. This book mostly wraps up loose ends. I was hoping for something over the top that would match the conspicuous consumption of the first two books, It turns out that you can get your pet fish a face lift for $30,000, but that's about the only new offering on that front. Reading the first book, I thought, "Who knew there were so many people designing expensive clothes?" By the time I got to the third book, my reaction was "Whatever". It was only at the very end of the book that I realized what an awful character Astrid had been throughout. She embodies the conspicuous consumption, groveling filial piety and child abandonment that characterizes these people. You might as well enjoy the guilty pleasure one last time if you've made it this far, but don't expect a lot.

Deception, conniving, deep secrets, wild acting out and nasty scandals round out the truths revealed in this final installment of the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy. The satire was just as bitingly funny as the previous books, though in this installment I would say a bit more subtle. In a nutshell, this book focuses on clan members vying to stake their claim on their ailing matriarch's fortune and reveals just what some people can be capable of doing to get their slice of the pie. Recommend reading if nothing more than to learn how everything turns out.
