With each family member secretly fantasizing about getting the keys to Tyersall Park--a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart o...

    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 ven...

    Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan is a 2017 Doubleday publication.Hilarity and intrigue merge to create yet another wildly entertaining installment in this fabulous series!As with the previous installments, a little time has elapsed, meaning there have been a few changes since we last touched base with all these zany characters. Rachel and Nicholas receive word that his grandmother is suffering from congestive heart failure. As the family begins...

    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...

    An amazing end to a really wonderfully charming and hilarious trilogy.

    Rich People Problems is the third installment in Kevin Kwan's humorous series titled Crazy Rich Asians. This one was less funny and more emotional but it was still an amazing read just in a different way. Lots of resolution, some things coming full-circle, plenty of surprises for both the reader and certainly for the characters. It was an excellent addition (and ending, I think) to the series. Note: This series must absolutely be read in order. C...

    This was my favorite of the 3 books because by this point I was invested in the characters due to sheer exposure from binge reading.The first 2/3 or so would have easily been 4 stars if that was the end of the book, but then it continued to drag on and I started to feel myself not caring about the outcomes anymore. The drama was the same ol same ol, especially between Kitty and Colette and omg I was sick of it.Although a fun peek into the world o...

    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 more reviews!What do you do when you’re outrageously rich and you...

    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 serie...

    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 more time with them. Overall, more emotional, with more 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 fa...

    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 more adventures. The r...

    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 more about Su ...

    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 sever...

    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 th...

    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 a...

    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...

    Brilliant wraps up the trilogy. I swear, every single fabulous character gets a satisfying conclusion to their story arc! I am absolutely holding my breath and crossing my fingers that they make movies of the entire trilogy (I think they said they were going to . . . ?), because that would be fantastic!

    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 more about Su Yi (Nick's grandma) and all of our faves, but the rea...

    Loved it! So sad the series is over. I can feel a reading slump coming.

    Fast paced, but still fun and a thrilling conclusion to the series. I felt a little dirty after reading this series, like one does after watching crap tv for a while, but I still couldn't put it down. I did like the ending - no wonder they are making a sequel to the movie.

    You can read all of our reviews at https://reallyintothis.comHappy 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 t...

    I figured I'd get around to this book eventually and when I ditched another audiobook right before a flight, it was the right time for a book I knew would be fluffy and reliable. A solid entry in the series, with piles and piles of soapy plot twists. By now I'm used to the descriptions of clothing and cars and private jets. I liked the Su Yi secrets and the way the family came together again. I admit, I could keep reading a new entry in this seri...

    All of these uber-wealthy families always look down at Middle and Lower Class. Most assume that Money can buy happiness, then follow in pursuit of happiness. Happiness and hard work is the journey, wealth is the destination. Some say wealth may lead to freedom, freedom to purchase, that is. Paparazzi and Reporters and Gossip Magazines trail you like your shadow, leaving you no freedom at all. This book reminds me of the stubborn, gossip fed, and ...

    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 i...

    3.5 StarsFor me, this book ranked in-between the first and second. It had a good overall story arc but it also dragged. It did wrap up nicely. I would still like to see what happens after the wedding. I want to see the families reaction to Rachel being pregnant. I would like to see Rachel and her paternal family actually hangout in a situation not so dire. I would like to see Rachel actually teach bc we literally never get too. I would've liked t...

    I didn't want the book to end. I want to spend more time with these amazing and hilariously over the top characters. I enjoyed learning more about Su Yi in this one. This is the perfect summer read. Thank you to Doubleday for sending me an ARC.
