Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

New York Times best seller.

Nicholas Young's grandmother Su Yi is on her deathbed. While he rushes to be by her bedside, he's not the only one. The entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe to stake claim on their matriarch's massive fortune. With all parties vying to inherit a trophy estate in the heart of Singapore, Nicholas' childhood home turns into a hotbed of sabotage and scandal.

Taking us from the elegantly appointed mansions of Manila to the secluded private islands in the Sulu Sea, Kevin Kwan's final instalment in this irresistible trilogy reveals the long-buried secrets of Asia's most privileged families and their rich-people problems.

I never wanted it to end!

I loved every moment of these three books. Incredible characters, entertaining multi-perspective story arcs, thoughtful insights into the human condition, and to top it all off, impressive narration that brought the stories to life.
Thank you so much for a fantastic journey!

Enjoyed

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to these characters lives over the past three books. I am so glad this one was written as it added details and endings that were wondeful.

Absolutely Fabulous Read

All 3 books were fantastic. Tons of twists and turns that made it hard to put down. Such a great ending to the series that I was sad it had to end. The narrative was awesome funny, believable and well suited that made the story come to life.

Enjoyable

Always curious learning about how others live. However, even after Crazy Rich Asians, I still didn't quite get it. Some of these characters are not just detestable they are truly loathsome and it's their oblivious irresponsibility that partly makes them so. Having said that though, overall this is a thoroughly enjoyable book. It is handled well and gets better the further you get into it as there is some historical accuracy and solid research evident which is a really fascinating glimpse on a dark period of history. There is a lot of good humour but the uptight overmoralistic attitudes and hypocrisy (and vacuous bitchy gossiping) really does wear thin after a while. The narration isn't perfect, but it is far from a disaster. If you can overlook a few mispronunciations and the necessary footnotes (which didn't bother me at all tbh) like me you'll note that Lydia Look really does an excellent job with lovely smooth transitions between characters. Overall this is a worthy spend.

Brilliant

What an entertaining adventure through the lives of people so wealthy they get plastic surgery on their fish. Jane Austen meets modern day Singapore. Can’t wait to read the next instalment!

Entertaining narrator and great story with twists

Expressive and entertaining narrator. Some mispronounced words though - like French and Filipino place names. The writer does give an interesting introduction and inspiration to visiting Asia. Comes with a happy ending with a fun twist. I hate unresolved unhappy endings.

Great story and superb narrator

I love the storyline, and Kevin’s character development skills are excellent. My top compliment however goes to Lydia Look, whose brilliant narration made listening to the book a delightful experience.

Loved this series

I devoured all three books in this series in less than a month. I absolutely loved them! This was my least favorite of the three but I still really enjoyed it. Only complaint: wish we had seen Carlton more! I absolutely loved him after China Rich Girlfriend, and I really missed Rachel this book. Still, I think it was a great ending for the series. I will definitely check out Kevin Kwan's other books.
