The newest novel from Kevin Kwan is now out!Â Rich People ProblemsÂ follows a family dealing with theirÂ matriarch on herÂ deathbed and the supposedly massive inheritance she will soon leave behind.
There’s family drama, complicated romance, and so much more. Here’s what people think of this new read!
There is a whole lot of great drama, and definitely some laugh out loud moments… And of course, there is the luxury these characters are afforded. The beautiful vacation spots, the descriptions some times made me feel like I could be right there. – Suzanne, 5 out of 5 stars
I loved Rich People Problems, it was hilarious, outlandish and filled with entertainment. It reminded me a lot of what I loved out of Crazy Rich Asians, the bizarre antics of the Shang-Young family, the name and label dropping and all of the deliciously decadent food. – Jeann, 4 out of 5 stars
Kwanâ€™s prose is fun, easy to read and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny. Itâ€™s difficult to put down once you find a storyline youâ€™re particularly invested in… Its setting gives it a familiar Asian flavor, and Kwan provides dead-on social commentary…
He gives us a very real look at overseas Chineseâ€™s traditions and Asiaâ€™s avoidance of the discussion on mental health… To anyone whoâ€™s too keen on picking up on society references or wanting to imagine a luxe getaway before summer ends. – Vincent Ong
Kwanâ€™s prose may be plain, but he accessorizes splendidly, with detailed descriptions of feasts and mansions, couture clothing and shiny, shiny jewels. Rich People Problems is a fun tabloid romp full of over-the-top shenanigans… It delivers exactly what itâ€™s supposed to â€” a memorable, laugh-out-loud Asian glitz fest thatâ€™s a pure pleasure to read. – Steph Cha
