“Flashy, funny... Delicious, the juicy stuff of classic high-society drama... Rich People Problems is a fun tabloid romp full of over-the-top shenanigans, like a society party brawl that ruins both a Ramon Orlina glass sculpture of the hostess’s breasts and ‘a special pig that had only eaten truffles its entire life and was flown in from Spain...’ A memorable, laugh-out-loud Asian glitz fest that’s a pure pleasure to read.” —Steph Cha, USA Today
“I gobbled all three volumes of Kevin Kwan’s gossipy, name-droppy and wickedly funny Crazy Rich Asians trilogy as if they were popcorn. (Really fresh, still-warm popcorn, with that good European butter… but I digress.) The novels, set among three intergenerational and ultrarich Chinese families and peppered with hilarious explanatory footnotes, are set mostly in Singapore but flit easily from one glamorous world city to another… Irresistible.” –Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times
“Kevin Kwan has done it again. The mastermind behind the delicious Crazy Rich Asians series has drawn a cult-like following with his extravagant tales of Asia’s upper echelon. He’s back at with the series’s final installment, Rich People Problems (rest assured, it’s just as enthralling as the trilogy’s first two volumes).” –Isabel Jones, InStyle
“[A] hilarious family drama… This delightfully wicked family saga will have you laughing over your summer daiquiris at the long-buried secrets of Asia’s most privileged families and their rich people problems.” —Redbook Magazine, “20 Summer Beach Reads to Stock Up On Now”
“There are a lot of lines in Kevin Kwan’s forthcoming novel Rich People Problems that will make you both roll your eyes and chuckle at the pure absurdity of the characters… Pure entertainment. Think: Bravo’s ‘Housewives’ but with a lot more money and, as a result, a lot more drama.” —Taylor Bryant, Nylon
“Thank god for Kwan... In Rich People Problems—Kwan’s third installment in his Crazy Rich Asians series—even more insane family hijinks unfold when greed and jealousy get fortune-hungry schemers up in a wild tizzy. Catch up on the whole saga before the film’s release.” –W Magazine

As the story resumes, beloved matriarch Sun Yi falls ill, and her large extended family flies in from around the world, although it remains to be seen whether they arrive out of filial obligation or because they hope to inherit Tyersall Park, the family compound. Let’s be honest with each other: it’s mostly the latter.
Tolstoy said that “each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way”, and this is certainly the case. Prepare yourself for over the top antics as everyone vies for a portion of the estate- never mind that Sun Yi has not actually passed away yet.
Rich People Problems capitalizes on the key points that made the first two books successful: name-dropping of designer brands and mouth-watering descriptions of food. There are several different storylines happening simultaneously, but of course, they all center around the aforementioned soap opera antics.
I would recommend Rich People Problems. I would suggest reading the first two books before tackling this one so that you have a full appreciation of the family dynamic and the numerous ensemble characters. This is a light book (with the exception of one plotline) and it was a fun read. The end of the book leaves the possibility for another entry in the series- perhaps in 2019?- one can only hope! Even if this is to be the end of the series, I am looking forward to the Crazy Rich Asians movie!
I received a digital copy of this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I purchased my own copy because I liked this book so much.
The story focuses on the trials and tribulations Astrid Leong is going through as she attempts to divorce her husband Michael while keeping alive her new relationship with Charlie Wu. It also focuses on Nicholas as he wonders what he should do now that his Grandmother has fallen ill. And we get a lot of attention paid to the Shangs, some attention on Rachel's brother, a good deal of attention on Kitty Pong and Oliver and almost no attention on Rachel. It seems Rachel's story was mostly done so we don't focus on her too much. That's a pity because she was an amazing artistic creation and I would have loved to see more about her. And that's why this book only merits three stars. All in all, it's a weak conclusion to the trilogy.
For me, the best part of the book were Su Yi's WWII flashbacks. If Kwan doesn't want to continue this story then I hope he would write a story about Su Yi. She has always been amazing and now she sounds even more intriguing.
