I finished Rich People Problems, the third book in the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy by Kevin Kwan last night. I loved the first one, and enjoyed the second, so I was excited to read this one. It took a little bit to get back into all of th characters, but yesterday, I read for several hours wanting to finish it.
Nick Young is back as the main character and he goes back to Singapore when his beloved but estranged grandmother becomes very ill. Of course, the rest of the family descends on the house as well in an attempt to gain some of th inheritance. Once she dies, the real drama begins as the family begins entertaining offers for the palace-like home. Nick feels a sense of duty in wanting to preserve the home instead of selling it off to developers.
The crazy characters of Nick’s extended family were easily the best part of the first two books and they don’t disappoint here. A movie based on the first novel is currently in production and I can’t wait to see that as well.
