A viral Books Rich People Problems Sometimes the best antidote for the craziness of the world is reading a wacky book. (It leaves my head clearer than drinking would, anyway.) Kevin Kwan's Rich People Problems, the third in his Crazy Rich Asians series, was just the ticket. Campy, a bit melodramatic, and utterly outrageous, Kwan's tales of three generations of Chinese families, set mostly in Singapore, provides a hysterical glimpse into how the ultra-rich live."Peel away the veneer of wealth and sophistication and you'll find extremely provincial, narrow-minded people. The problem is that they all have too much money, and it's come so easily to them that they think they're bloody geniuses and so they are always right."Su Yi, the matriarch of the Young Family, is on her deathbed. She has a massive fortune, capped by Tyersall Park, a 64-acre estate on prime land in Singapore. While Asian tradition would usually expect Su Yi to leave the estate to her eldest son, Philip, many believed she'd bequeath it to his son, her favorite grandson, Nicholas. But Nicholas has been estranged from his grandmother after she voiced her disapproval of his marrying Rachel, whom she viewed as a common Chinese girl, so he hasn't been home to visit her in several years.With disposition of Su Yi's estate in question, her entire family heads to Tyersall Park to hopefully get into her good graces (and perhaps move up a bit in her will) before she passes. Her eldest daughter, Felicity, knows that she'll probably get the short end of the stick because of her gender, but she has bigger fish to fry—her daughter Astrid is scandalizing the family with her relationship with her college boyfriend Charlie Wu. The family never thought that he was good enough for her, even though he is a self-made technology tycoon now, they don't want the two to get together now, even though both are on the verge of divorcing.Another grandson, Edson (Eddie) Chang, has also come to be with Su Yi, with his family in tow. Eddie is the most status-conscious of any of the family members—he always has to be sure people know he's wearing top-of-the-line designers, the most expensive and unique shoes (one pair needed to be dyed multiple times, so they took weeks to be ready for him), and the most luxurious of luxury timepieces. He is bound and determined to finally get the respect he believes he deserves, and if that means keeping others away from his grandmother until he wins her over to his side, so be it.While Nicholas says he doesn't care about the estate and doesn't want to revisit the hurt his grandmother caused, he realizes he needs to say goodbye to her. (Plus, his high-strung mother insists about five times a day, when she's not interrogating him and Rachel about when they'll give her a grandchild.) His return home dredges up some resentment (especially with his cousin Eddie), but spending time with Su Yi and other family members reminds him of the importance of family, but reinforces how smart he and Rachel are to live in New York!Meanwhile, former, umm, actress Kitty Pong has finally gained some status with her marriage to China's second-richest man, Jack Bing. But her quest for respectability keeps falling short, as she can't seem to reconcile her schizophrenic tastes in fashion and decor with what is expected of someone in her position. Even worse is the fact that she is convinced her stepdaughter, fashionista-turned-attorney's wife Colette, is trying to upstage her at every turn. No matter how hard she tries to stand out, Colette seems to be in her way, despite her sudden passion for the environment and no-frills fashion."Scientists talk about how we inherit health issues from our parents through our genes, but we also inherit this entire lineage of fear and pain—generations of it."Rich People Problems is quite funny as it chronicles the over-the-top behavior of these people as they battle for an inheritance, social acceptance, love, and most of all, more money. Kwan imbues his book with painstaking details (even his footnotes are hysterical while also being informative) and a litany of designers, couture, and descriptions of food sure to make your stomach growl quite loudly. Even the characters' names are amazing—my favorite is probably Scheherazade Shang, or Harvard Bing, the infant son of Kitty and Jack. The visuals Kwan's imagery conveys are eye-popping, and some of the dialogue is campier than any soap opera diva or villain's.Like many, I've occasionally thought about what life might be like if I didn't have to worry about money—what I would do, where I would go, what I would spend it on. But the amount of money the characters in this book throw around (one character gets an eye lift for a rare fish to make it look younger) is unfathomable, which makes the book so much fun to read. A true guilty pleasure. See all of my reviews at http://itseithersadnessoreuphoria.blo....

  3. I received an ARC of Kevin Kwan s Rich People Problems from Netgalley and Doubleday in exchange for an honest review.In this third installation, Kevin Kwan brings back the magic I felt China Rich Girlfriend was missing Although to be honest, I could still do without Kitty I did not like her in the second book, and still felt like she was mostly unneeded mainly because there are so many great characters in the book who could have used the time given to her Back to the great parts of this book I c [...]

  4. I loved Rich People Problems, it was hilarious, outlandish and filled with entertainment It reminded me a lot of what I loved out of Crazy Rich Asians, the bizarre antics of the Shang Young family, the name and label dropping and all of the deliciously decadent food Full review to come Actual Rating 4.5This review was originally posted on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews What do you do when you re outrageously rich and you re part of the most powerful, influential families in Asia You [...]

  5. Wow, Kevin Kwan has done it again I knew he would I had VERY high expectations for this book and they were exceeded so so far This book is full of unexpected plot twists, hilarious and outrageous moments, and had characters I could relate to even though I can t even imagine being 1 100 times as a rich as them Truth is, Asians esp Chinese still have their cultural roots, most of which I could 100% relate to and that s why I love this series so much The storylines get and complicated and in my m [...]

  6. I ve loved this series, primarily because it is outrageous, funny and over the top New money, old money, extravagances beyond comprehension combined with family rivalry, secrecy and love stories delicious Add that it is centred in Singapore, provides reams of cultural education as a serious side dish to the funky fun, and the series was simply a treat of entertainment and novelty I hope that Kevin Kwan leads readers on adventures The romps were divine , and I d like to savour another

  7. I m so so so so so sad to leave my friends in this series I didn t want this book to end so I could spend time with them Overall, emotional, with backstory than the first two and we really sunk into the spirit of the characters and the elements that make up the glue that holds the family together Ugh, I m obsessed If I had to rank the three, the first one is my favorite, followed by this one, and the second is my least favorite But they re all wonderful.Something to make note of was that ther [...]

  8. Rich People Problems is a fabulous read Kevin Kwan s witty writing and highly entertaining characters make Rich People Problems so much fun to read There are A LOT of characters to keep up with, but once I had them all straight again I didn t want the book to end Kwan is a master at depicting familial relationships, and with everyone descending on Tyersall Park, there is much family drama to be had I really enjoyed learning about Su Yi s background and Tyersall Park itself Kwan s descriptions o [...]

When Su Yi, the matriarch of the Shang, Young and Leong families is affected by heart problems, everyone rushes to see her While some are there to say good bye, the rest are there after one thing only Tyersall Park Tyersall Park is a grand mansion on sprawling property in Singapore that currently belongs to Su Yi Being a prized estate, everyone is wondering who will inherit it Meanwhile, Nick has not seen nor spoken to his grandmother Su Yi since he announced his intentions to marry Rachel Now, [...]

  10. You can read all of our reviews at reallyintothisHappy Reading, friends totally meant to have this review ready 2 weeks ago when Rich People Problems was published, but you know what I wasn t finished reading it I ve found that when I am Really Into a book, it takes me a while to finish it I feel like that s opposite of a lot of my reading friends The thing is, if I m Really Into a book, then I want to savor it, stay in the story make it last That s exactly what happened with Kevin Kwan s third [...]

  11. WHAT a whirlwind You guys, I cannot recommend this series enough, and this just might be my favourite book in it.Rich People Problems is OUTRAGEOUS, and outrageously funny It s got scandal after scandal, and Kevin Kwan has MASTERED the art of ending his chapters with a shocker, so that it is physically IMPOSSIBLE to stop reading this book until the very end.It was great to read about Su Yi Nick s grandma and all of our faves, but the real scene stealers were the anti heroes or the straight up v [...]

  12. A disappointing, bloated mess The book starts off promising enough, with 3 tongue in cheek anecdotes about rich people problems , but then it totally veers off course Part 1 is almost unreadable, as it tries way too hard to recapture the perfect blend of snark, humor, and ridiculousness of Crazy Rich Asians The whole book is a hot mess with so many plot holes and unnecessary story lines I m glad to have finished the trilogy and know how it all ends, but the Kitty vs Collette story line is just t [...]

  13. More like 2.5.I didn t find this book nearly as entertaining as its predecessors Not sure if the novelty s worn off or what, but it just seemed a lot idk, tackier than the others The constant footnotes got pretty annoying did we really need that whole spiel about Jon Snow It felt like there was just so much name reference dropping, but the names and references seemed less impressive than before.Nick and Rachel, having been the focus of the first two novels, were reduced to secondary characters R [...]

  14. 4.5 THANK YOU NETGALLEY FOR PROVIDING ME WITH AN ARC Now that I think about it, I realize that it s a bit weird that I ve never talked about one of my favourite series Written by Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Asians depicts the crazy adventures of the extravagant Chinese elite Admittedly, the set of three books is not for everybody Think of it as a mashup between Gossip Girl and 90210 where the cast is in their early 30s and instead of hanging out in Barney s or Nordstrom, do their shopping between Chi [...]

  15. Spectacular fun A book that you cannot help but be entertained by due to the richly engaging and extravagant characters This book will leave you reeling from the laughs and the realization on how the other half lives.

  16. I didn t want the book to end I want to spend time with these amazing and hilariously over the top characters I enjoyed learning about Su Yi in this one This is the perfect summer read Thank you to Doubleday for sending me an ARC.

  17. While there were definitely a couple things I could really do without anti blackness, a dig or two at biracial kids this series has been really good at owning what it is The satire is biting and so very funny, and the emotional beats feel true and honest I ve really enjoyed walking with Rachel and Nick as they navigated this world of excess and entryways, and I m sad that this is the end of a series that has distracted me from the crap that s going on all the time.

  18. I loved this trilogy It was just so much fun from start to finish I will miss all the wacky antics of this large family, but I m grateful for the peek into their lives that Kevin Kwan showed us.

  19. While I breezed through the first two novels in Kevin Kwan s trilogy can I call it that , this one was harder to sink my teeth into There are still many positives I really enjoyed the added focus on the history of the Shang and Young families, which did a lot to redeem some of the less agreeable characters throughout the series namely, the matriarch of the Youngs, Shang Su Yi In general, Rich People Problems reversed my opinions of several main characters, as well as a few supporting ones Kwan c [...]

  20. In the third installment of the Crazy Rich Asians series, we find that the matriarch of the family, Su Yi Young is on her death bed and her relative will stop at nothing in order to get the most coveted prize of her estate, Tyersall Park Tyersall Park is a sprawling compound that is the most valuable piece of real estate in all of Singapore Will the family be able to put away their differences long enough to agree Thank you to NetGalley and Doubleday Books for the opportunity to read and review [...]

  24. Shang Su Yi is on her deathbed, and Tyersall Park is on lockdown Having read and enjoyed the first two books I could not WAIT to sink my teeth into the exploits of my favorite family The first two books had such spot on characters that I still remember fondly By the third book, Nick, Rachel, Astrid, Charlie, Kitty, and Ollie had started to feel like old friends and frenemies By the third chapter, I am hoping for Astrid s happy ending and wondering if Nick and Rachel will ever reconcile with Nick [...]
