Five Star Billionaire is a dazzling, kaleidoscopic audiobook that offers rare insight into the booming world of Shanghai, a city of elusive identities and ever-changing skylines, of grand ambitions and outsize dreams. Bursting with energy, contradictions, and the promise of possibility, Tash Aw's remarkable new audiobook is both poignant and comic, exotic and familiar, cutting-edge and classic, suspenseful and yet beautifully unhurried.

I did not expect to enough this book as much as I did. I did not quite like there ending but it reminded me of the Japanese style novels that don't really spoon feed an ending to you.
The narrator was very good. However, I do feel that he should have invested a little more time perfecting house pronunciation of colloquial Chinese and Malay words. There are many apps and websites that can assist IBM this age and time.

Editor or Publisher maybe mentally ill writer
Would you try another book from Tash Aw and/or Robertson Dean?
No. It looks like the editor or publisher did a hatchet job on the story line. It was told so disjointed. Some good information, but inserted in the wrong place at times. Some one should have proofed the story line. It was poorly put together? The writer is unstable like Justin and Yum yum!
Has Five Star Billionaire turned you off from other books in this genre?
What genre? Historical, philosophical romance, really!
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robertson Dean?
Dean was working with what was there. I would not have published this in the current state of continuity.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
There were some very valuable life lessons, but the story line did not flow. I had to replay it several time because I did not know what the dam subject line was.
Any additional comments?
