Rich People Problems

Rich People Problems (#674) is the concluding volume in Kevin Kwan's Crazy Rich Asian trilogy (Soon to be a major motion picture according to the cover flap!).  I have mixed emotions about this.  On the one hand, I've enjoyed this dishy glimpse into the private lives of the Asian point-oh-one per centers so much, but on the other, I am sorry to see it come to the end.

Kwan does do a good job of tying up the loose ends here, and most of the parties involved in all three books do seem to get what they deserve, good or bad.  What more could you ask for?  Top designers, beautiful clothing, incredible meals, elegant homes, private planes - it is fun to dream about what that kind of life must be like, but reading Mr. Kwan's novels do make you wonder if it really is all that's cracked up to be.  Alamak! as the ladies here would say!

Spoiler alert:  Tyersall Park is included in the happy endings after suitable anguishing over its fate!

Can't wait to see the movie.  They can't possibly make it as glamorous as the books, but it will be fun to see the producers try!  Now if only they served appropriate food along with the movie...
