    Description

    A hilarious and heartwarming New York Times best-selling novel - the basis for the acclaimed major motion picture!

    "There's rich, there's filthy rich, and then there's crazy rich.... A Pride and Prejudice-like send-up about an heir bringing his Chinese-American girlfriend home to meet his ancestor-obsessed family.” (People)

    When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.

    On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

    Terribly performed accents/pronunciations

    The narrator’s accent is terrible and distracts from the enjoyment of the book. It would have been more believable if the narrator could more accurately (or at least more closely) say the Chinese words and better execute the accents. As it is, it is annoying and distracting.

    1st Chapter, can't stand narration AND I'm asian!

    This would have been a great a book to listen but I am now just going to read this book.

    What didn’t you like about Lynn Chen’s performance?

    exaggerated

    You're better off reading this light-hearted romp

    What disappointed you about Crazy Rich Asians?

    The narrator may be Chinese, but she fails to imitate the Singaporean accent, nor does she pronounce the various Cantonese, Hokkien, or Singaporean words correctly.

    I obtained a physical copy of the book, and there are many useful, entertaining footnotes that have been omitted in the audiobook.

    Worst Narration Ever

    The attempts at accents are so bad that in addition to being annoyingly distracting the delivery rarely matches the context of the dialog. Add to that vocal fry and.. cringing experience.

    Narration is horrible

    What disappointed you about Crazy Rich Asians?

    I had a lot of difficulty getting through the narration of this book. I speak Chinese and know how the asian dialects sound; the narrator obviously does not know either. It was painfully annoying listening to her attempts to mimic the accents and the language -- it was downright insulting at times. Her British accent was fine but anytime she tried to speak with an accent or use the Chinese words, I cringed and unfortunately, it ruined the book for me. I think I would have enjoyed the book much more if I had read it rather than listening to the narrator.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The general story is interesting.

    How could the performance have been better?

    A narrator who actually spoke Chinese and could mimic the accents, without being insulting

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story kept me going or else I would have given up on it after the first few chapters.

    Entertaining, Fun Listen

    If you could sum up Crazy Rich Asians in three words, what would they be?

    Worth the Credit!

    What other book might you compare Crazy Rich Asians to and why?

    This book is totally entertaining, and it is all about money, eye candy, jet setting and living LARGE! It's not deep but that's ok - it's entertaining, and the family dynamics among the crazy rich are interesting. I also liked the love story story between Rachel and Nick. I liked both characters and was rooting for them throughout the book. This book is a little like Devil Wears Prada in tone and absorption. Again, not deep but very very entertaining.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Rachel Chu deals with the fish incident. She takes the high road and I admired her for dealing with the non stop backstabbing and gossip. She was the recipient of some serious mean girl action.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really enjoyed this book - it's the perfect beach read type book.

    Any additional comments?

    I hope to see more Kevin Kwan audio books in the future!

    Just Okay

    I purchased this book because it had a pretty good rating, although I must say I was disappointed. The writing itself was great as it really painted a picture of the characters and places. But the story was lackluster, and the characters rather boring. It was honestly a little hard to get through. The only time my interest was peaked was in the final few chapters. The performance was great, but overall the book was just okay. Not something I would recommend. It is also supposed to be made into a movie, which hopefully will be better.

    Thanks,
    Just Being Honest

    Terrible narration

    What would have made Crazy Rich Asians better?

    The narration was stilted and did not match the time if the book.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Lynn Chen’s performances?

    Not with the same narrator

    Annoying Narration

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Narrate the book without the exagerrated accents so we can hear the words clearly. The constant shifting back and forth of accents and voices made it difficult to follow the dialogue.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lynn Chen?

    Anyone incapapble of doing "chinese" accents. The accents in a different light could be thought of as offensive stereotypes.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no

    Terrible narration. Read the book instead.

    The story is fine but the narrator is appalling. She can only do the American accent. The rest l, British, Australian, Chinese Singaporean are terrible, most ending up sounding exaggerated and strange and even Indian at times. Pronunciation is also appallingly bad. For a book that has such particular language and terms, one would think that it is imperative to find someone who could actually get it right. Even French terms are so terribly mangled, it sounds like you're listening to Siri. This is a travesty, making the whole book unbeatable to listen to.

    fantastically written, not spoken well at all

    the speaker has a pleasant voice but often emphasises incorrectly and gets accents completely wrong. Not saying its easy, but its a shame as this is the only thing that stops this audiobook from being a masterpiece!

    I recommend reading the book.

    I enjoyed listening to the story eventhough the narrator's pronunciation of local words were frequently inaccurate. With so much details in the book, I could imagine that reading it would be even more enjoyable.

    the nuances the movie misses are in the book

    Great book, it gives you a picture of Singapore that is truly decadent. the characters develop beautifully through the book. Some of the accents that Lynn Chen tries for some of the characters are a bit awkward and don't quite work.

    Quite alright for a rainy day

    Over all it’s a nice story with occasional portrays of the Asian family minded mentality, which is a refreshing and much needed angle. However it also draws a picture of a supposed materialistic and slightly vulgar part of society and whilst listening I have often felt that the characters and the writing style of Kevin Kwan wants for elegance.
    The voice or the narrator, Lynn Chen, takes some getting used to, especially with one of the protagonists, who is supposed to have a British accent or when she pronounces anything in French.

    Unexpected

    I was looking for an easy read. At the beginning it was just that. Then however, it got really interesting. Good storyline, non-predictable story!

    Very entertaining and catching story

    A funny story with a moral told in a authentic chinese way. If you know a bit about China, Malaysia and have maybe been there you can relate to the different places, foods, way the natives talk and their ethnics. I had fun listening to this book and like that the narrate seems to be Chinese herself and gets across the dialect very well. Contrary to other reviews I do not think that words were mispronounced.

    So Chinese

    The story may be a bit exaggerated but for somebody living in a Chinese environment as non-Chinese, it is very entertaining. The speaker fits well.

    sorry, it I couldn't stay connected with this book

    It didn't capture me. I kept loosing concentration. The voice was slightly monotonous. To be honest I fast forwarded. Bored to hear about fashion. story was weak. such a shame. Because I usually lovely audio books.
