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.
I still really enjoyed this book. It was a fun read for my beach vacation, but I cannot say that I am keen to revisit this series. I would love to see what Kwan can do with a new set of characters.
