If you haven’t heard of Kevin Kwan and Crazy Rich Asians well it’s time you did. Kevin Kwan, is the best-selling author of Crazy Rich Asians (soon to be a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan). Kevin was born in Singapore and has been living in New York’s West Village since 1995.
His latest book, Rich People Problems is the final book in the trilogy. You met the Youngs, Shangs, and other elite families through the eyes of American-born Rachel Chu in Crazy Rich Asians in 2013. In 2015 Rachel’s world turned upside down in China Rich Girlfriend, first marrying the love of her life, Nick Young, then finding out her biological father is actually pretty filthy rich, too. All three a hilarious read, a comedy of manners for this shrinking world.
So whats next for Rachael? The good part is that you don’t necessarily need to know all the details from the previous book to get yourself all ready for Rich People Problems, but we strongly suggest that you go pick them up because this will be the most side-splitting and satisfying trilogy you’ve ever read.
When Nicholas Young hears that his grandmother, Su Yi, is on her deathbed, he rushes to be her bedside along with the entire Shang-Young clan. Everyones under one roof to stake a claim on their matriarch’s massive fortune. Nicholas’s childhood home now turns into a hotbed of speculation and sabotage. This hilariously funny novel takes you on a cultural journey from the mansions of Manila to the secluded private islands in the Sulu Sea, from a kidnapping at Hong Kong’s most elite private school to a surprise marriage proposal at an Indian palace, caught on camera by the paparazzi.
Fans of Kevin would want to read this in one sitting and series newcomers would want to read them all! You are guaranteed a laugh riot!
