Publisher's Summary

Kevin Kwan, best-selling author of Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend, is back with an uproarious new novel of a family riven by fortune, an ex-wife driven psychotic with jealousy, a battle royal fought through couture gown sabotage, and the heir to one of Asia's greatest fortunes locked out of his inheritance.

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. The entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe to stake claim on their matriarch's massive fortune. With each family member vying to inherit Tyersall Park - a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore - Nicholas' childhood home turns into a hotbed of speculation and sabotage.

As her relatives fight over heirlooms, Astrid Leong is at the center of her own storm, desperately in love with her old sweetheart, Charlie Wu, but tormented by her ex-husband - a man hell-bent on destroying Astrid's reputation and relationship.

Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to China's second richest man, billionaire Jack Bing, still feels second best next to her new stepdaughter, famous fashionista Colette Bing.

A sweeping novel that takes us from the elegantly appointed 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 telephoto lenses of paparazzi, Kevin Kwan's hilarious, gloriously wicked new novel reveals the long-buried secrets of Asia's most privileged families and their rich people problems.

Great book, has it’s bland moments.

Great listen/read, I really enjoyed it. I would say I enjoyed it just as much as Crazy Rich Asians. They’re moments when the book directs its self to unnecessary detail, that led me to fast forward a couple of minutes.

The last 7 chapters was outstanding. I would highly recommend this novel.

Great finale to the Trilogy

The story was great, and although it seems to lull in the middle, just wait, because it amps up 100 fold after that. I preferred the narrator of the first book in the trilogy to this narrator though. She pronounces some words incorrectly (Bondi, and Coogee among a few others) and does not do Rachel’s voice as well as the original narrator. Overall-amazing-couldn’t stop listening!

Fabulous and Fun

What made the experience of listening to Rich People Problems the most enjoyable?

This does not disappoint as a follow up to Crazy: Kwan is the Dominick Dunne of Asia. Millionaires are now just incidental to be important Billions are a must!!! Looking forward to the film adaptation - so much fun!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rich People Problems?

Secret Tunnels

Have you listened to any of Lydia Look’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great

Who was the most memorable character of Rich People Problems and why?

Kitty - she is the other Mrs Grenville!

Cheesy and Funny and the PERFECT Summer Book!

I've read all of Kevin Kwan's books, and this one is as equally funny and entertaining as the first two. Of course, they're all kind of silly but entertaining nonetheless. (I see many parallels between the book and my real life as an Asian American woman!) The narrator really brings the story to life.

Couldn't put it down!

I finished this book in a week! the grandmother is petty in a way that I live for! the story doesn't go where you think it will. And the narrator does a great job of distinguishing the many, many characters.

I highly recommend this book!!!

Not as good as the first

Too much time on less than endearing characters. But vivid and descriptive like the first one.

Kwan does it again!

The next installment in a great story of family, culture, and traditions often unknown to the Western world. Kevin Kwan does a great job of weaving so many individuals' stories into a great tapestry. At times it can be hard to keep up with exactly which character is being discussed but it doesn't take more than a moment or two to catch up. Lydia Look's narration does such justice to the story and her great talent for making subtle shifts in her voice helps listeners follow along on when there are often many characters in one scene. Hope this isn't the end of this family's story, looking forward to the next book from Kevin Kwan for sure!!

Fantastical life

Would you consider the audio edition of Rich People Problems to be better than the print version?

I always love audio versions but wished the narrator knew correct pronunciation of many foreign terms

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The only extreme reaction to the whole series was sheer disbelief of that degree of wealth - that by the end billions were so meaningless, designer brands so cheapened and family dynasties more important than love or achievement. That said the whole series was so fun - to hear how the elite few live, spend their money, to dream of weeks in Paris while haute couture dresses are made and to salivate over their meals.

Any additional comments?

It really irks me when narrators mispronounce names. She should learn that the George V is not George 5 but George Cinq. And Nessun Dorma tune is not as she screamed.

Pretty good

the second book was the best . This book was good I'm glad I read it /listen to it . We're at the credit . Get you a nice long story to listen to . I found myself even wanting to Google these people because they were so well-rounded . I think the plot could've been a little more robust

Rich Asian Series

I thoroughly enjoyed the story telling of this series of books--funny, light and entertaining summer read. I must say, however, there were many cringeworthy moments when the narrator mispronounced names and words. This is an easy fix with some Google research. This totally bugged me.
