Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
May 2017
16 hours 3 minutes

Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians (now a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan) 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’s 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 step-daughter, 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.

I should have read the family tree at the beginning of the "Rich People Problems" to keep everyone straight. I read the first two of Kevin Kwan's series years ago but eventually figured it out. I wanted to laugh, and I was not disappointed.

I finally got on the bandwagon. After there was so much hype, I dove into this series. I do have a question, how realistic are these assumptions regarding the culture. Completely intrigued. . .

I never expected to like this book as much as I did. Fluff - yes - but with great attention to detail and enough plot surprises to keep it really enjoyable. I immediately bought all his books and none have disappointed.

Liked the book though not the narrator as much as the one who did “Crazy Rich Asians”. The trilogy of books is great.

Loved the book, didn’t love the narrator...I wish they’d kept the narrator from Crazy Rich Asians instead of changing! Great book & series!
