Inhaltsangabe

Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.

When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick's formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should--and should not--marry. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich.

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.

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!

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.

Beste Sprecherin überhaupt! Wahnsinn wie gut sie die Dialekte und die schwierigen Namen ausgesprochen und gesprochen hat! Bin sehr begeistert und kann das Höebuch absolut empfehlen! Die Geschichte ist ebenfalls sehr mitreißend und unterhaltsam!
