One big disappointment - cheesy storyline, characters were predictable and lacked any nuance. Only listened till the end because I paid for it.

Too much time on less than endearing characters. But vivid and descriptive like the first one.

love love love this series, wish there could me more. good performance by narrator as well
Brilliant story and characters. I get into the stories at the first few chapters and have not stopped to listen since.
Lydia's narration really brings the characters to life. Kevin Kwan did not disappoint with the storyline, i just could not get enough of this book and found myself making excuses to continue listening to the book... even sat in the dentist chair listening to it while i got a filling done!
What did you like most about Rich People Problems?
I come from a Hong Kong background and moved to an English speaking country a decade ago. I find the characters' personalities and absurd beliefs about socio-economic statuses relatable. Although I am not anywhere close to being crazy-rich, or know anyone personally who does, the characters do reflect the stereotypes across several Asian cultures, which has never been portrayed in any Hollywood nor Asian movies before. In truth, some Hong Kees hold high opinions of themselves. Racism based on 'skin shades' exist among Asian communities. Judgements are weighted heavier on money wealth, success, and beauty, over personality and kindness. I have always listened these kinds of gossips among my extended Asians families. Overall, I enjoyed the three books very much. Lydia's performance made it extra entertaining! I'm looking forward to CRA movie coming out!
