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.

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.
