How can rich people have problems?


This is the final book in the trilogy that began with Crazy Rich Asians and continued with China Rich Girlfriend. Crazy Rich Asians set up the story of Rachel Chu and Nick Young. China Rich Girlfriend takes us to the next phase of their love story and Rich People Problems lead us to the end of an era in Singapore.

Kevin Kwan's writing is world class. He is witty, informative, descriptive and vibrant. I learned about more brands in this book than in the previous two. It continues the story of Rachel Chu and Nick Young after they get hitched. He also fills us in and completes the stories of other people in the first two books; Charlie Wu and Astrid Leong, and whatever did happen to Kitty Pong?

It is very modern with references to Tinder, WeChat, Instagram, and other social media. It delves into the lives of people with too much money and how they deal with them. He cites designers I've never even heard of. The digits he quotes also go next level.

No spoilers here, but Kevin Kwan finishes the story very eloquently and very well. His writing is engaging and consistent throughout these three books. I cannot wait until it's made into a movie.
