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. It seems the entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe, ostensibly to care for their matriarch but truly to stake claim on the massive fortune that Su Yi controls. With each family member secretly fantasizing about getting the keys to Tyersall Park--a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore--the place becomes a hotbed of intrigue and Nicholas finds himself blocked from entering the premises.

Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to billionaire Jack Bing, finds a formidable opponent in his fashionista daughter, Colette....

Rich People Problems (Crazy Rich Asians #3) Reviews
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 boo ...more
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 romps were "divine", and I'd like to savour another ...more
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 Rache ...more
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 more and more compli ...more
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.
Sukaaaaaaaaa, duh bakalan kangen dong karena udah tamat, tapi puas lah sama endingnya 😂
Kalau buku pertama lebih ke pengenalan karakter, buku kedua mengupas keluarga Rachel (yg bikin aku ngefans berat sama Carlton!), buku ketiga ini membuktikan betapa pentingnya pohon keluarga di awal halaman. Karena memang membahas mereka dengan cukup detail dan tentu saja Tyersall Park.
Aku senang harapanku terkabul! Charlie dan Astrid adalah pasangan favorit di serial ini! Dan tentu saja mendapat jatah yang ban ...more
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 Yi’s background and Tyersall Park itself. Kwan’s descr ...more
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.
