Pressestimmen

“Brash and funny . . . outrageous, courageous, moving, ironic and true.”New York Times Book Review
 
“Mercilessly funny and provocative, Fresh Off the Boat is also a serious piece of work.  Eddie Huang is hunting nothing less than Big Game here. He does everything with style.”—Anthony Bourdain
 
“Bawdy and frequently hilarious . . . a surprisingly sophisticated memoir about race and assimilation in America . . . as much James Baldwin and Jay-Z as Amy Tan . . . rowdy [and] vital . . . It’s a book about fitting in by not fitting in at all.”—Dwight Garner, The New York Times
 
“Uproariously funny . . . emotionally honest.”Chicago Tribune
 
“Huang is a fearless raconteur. [His] writing is at once hilarious and provocative; his incisive wit pulls through like a perfect plate of dan dan noodles.”Interview
 
“Although writing a memoir is an audacious act for a thirty-year-old, it is not nearly as audacious as some of the things Huang did and survived even earlier. . . . Whatever he ends up doing, you can be sure it won’t look or sound like anything that’s come before. A single, kinetic passage from Fresh Off the Boat . . . is all you need to get that straight.”—Bookforum

Ich habe das Buch mit meinem englischsprachigen Buchclub gelesen und wir konnten alle nicht verstehen, warum daraus so ein Hype gemacht wird. Diese Person ist absolut unsympathisch und wird im Laufe der Geschichte noch schrecklicher. Die Sprache ist furchtbar und man kann vor lauter Antipathie auch gar nicht mehr honorieren, was er vielleicht geleistet hat, sich aus der Gosse zu ziehen und ein Restaurant zu eröffnen....

HASH(0x93379084) von 5 Sternen Profane, profound, profusely entertaining. 9. Februar 2013
Von P. Wung - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"This book isn't for everyone. I thought it wasn't for me when I first started reading it.

Eddie Huang is the owner of Baohaus, a NYC eatery that is one of the hottest places in town. This is his autobiography, the story of his evolution from a confused kids who was fresh off the boat to an entrepreneur and a food celebrity. I really like thisi book because his life experience runs parallel to mine in many ways.

There are difference though, and even though Eddie speaks from a place that is near and dear to my heart, I am from an era that is far removed from Eddie Huang's generation. Hip-hop isn't my thing and I just don't get it. BUT, there are enough commonalities so that I do get where he is coming from. We both were born in Taiwan, we both came to America as young children. We both found our way through the maze that is America. Eddie did it about twenty years after I did, and he did it with far more courage. I went through the Caucasian society by keeping my head down and working at getting better and smarter their way. Eddie did it by figuring out his way and then having the courage and discipline to stay with it. I seethed inwardly at the racial stereotyping and the inequalities inherent in America, Eddie fought those things and more. Literally.

First of all, being the only Chinese kid in the neighborhood is not a good deal. The stereotypes run rampant and people get really ticked if you don't behave the way they want you to behave. Both of us have been through all that and Eddie's stories, while outrageous sounding, smack of the truth. He is as real as it gets, even more real than anyone wants.

The other part of the growing up Chinese/Taiwanese in America is the relationships we have with our families, particularly our parents. There is some hidden genetic code in Chinese parents, they all must have learned from the same book, just like the Tiger mom's book. You never praise your kid, you never let them know just how proud you are of them. Whatever they do is never enough and they are the dumbest, ugliest, the most worthless human beings on earth. While I love my parents, nothing I ever did was right, anything that I did which did not conform to their definitions of success: good grades, assimilation, wealth, and grudging acceptance by the Caucasians. was considered not good enough. So reading that part of the book was intense and had me riveted.

As a matter of fact, this book had me riveted for a good number of instance. Eddie Huang can write, his intelligence overflows the pages. But there are numerous times when he writes in his true street vernacular, those are the times that I really could not understand just what he is saying. But his rhythm, his tone, and his style really does help me transcend the lost in the translation feeling and drives home the points that he wanted to drive home.

I think the most enjoyable parts of the autobiography for me is when he starts talking about the foods of Taiwan and his own study of those foods. His expert descriptions of the street foods had my mouth watering at the memories and his description of his own culinary adventures had me marveling at his talent.

In the end, I think this is a book for the open minded. I don't think the average Food Network groupie would get into the cultural analysis inherent in the book. Many Chinese people would be horrified at some of young Eddie's adventures. It certainly won't make Chinese parents happy. In the end, Eddite Huang's honesty and straight as an arrow attitude is very attractive and makes for great reading."

HASH(0x933790d8) von 5 Sternen Bold, irritating, at times illuminating and opaque 29. März 2013
Von Samuel Dram - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This was, when I finished it, clearly a 2-star book. That was 2 weeks ago. Then I had to go back to it a few times and reread some parts over again. Now as I write this review I've got to give it 3 stars just for the amount that it questioned my own assumptions, and I'm bordering on 4 stars for it's boldness and originality.

Let's get it out of the way first - Huang uses numerous subculture references - basketball, comic books, rap, fashion - to the point where you might have a hard time understanding what is going on. That's the point: he's not going to spell it out for you, he's going to talk to you like you already know what's going on. And if you don't know already, he's not going to take the time to explain it to you. You catch up or get lost in the dust.

And there are long passages about his "rough times" getting into fights with frat boys, petty larceny, and selling weed. His wild days don't seem as wild to me as they do to him.

But some of the things he writes about - growing up with an Asian face in America, using food to tell a story, why "fusion" food is almost always dangerous and disingenuous, trying to find out who you are when everyone else is forcing you into an answer you might not like - are really powerful and interesting. Few people are writing about some of this stuff, and it's impossible to ignore him or write this book off.

I may not have understood everything in this book, but I got the sentiment, and I think we'll be hearing about this book and Eddie Huang for years to come.

HASH(0x93379510) von 5 Sternen Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir 5. Dezember 2012
Von Beth Cummings - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Being from the northern plains (fly-over country to those from the coasts), I was not aware of Eddie Huang or his Baohous restaurant prior to reading his memoir. Now I wish I lived closer to New York City so that I could taste a sample of his signature bao. I did know what they were (Taiwanese/Chinese meat in a bun) before reading the book, and his sound scrumptious.

Eddie Huang is the son of Taiwanese immigrants who struggled as many do to acclimatize and succeed in the United States. His father eventually put together enough capital to open and steakhouse and the family (parents and three sons) moved rapidly from poverty to wealth in Orlando, Florida. In the book Eddie describes the difficulties he had trying to find a way to fit in - a Chinese boy with a love of hip-hop and Taiwanese food. Eddie spent his teen years trying to live the gangsta lifestyle which eventually got him into trouble with the law. His parents sent him back to Taiwan to try to get his act together.

Eddie Huang is a very smart guy - both street smart and book smart. He learned from his past, went on to college and then to law school, making his father very proud by passing the bar exam on the first try. All set for life, escept that Eddie hated the legal life. He wanted to open a restaurant that would fill both a hip-hop need and a desire for authentic Taiwanese food. So with encouragement from such Food Network notables as Guy Fieri ("Diners, Drive-ins and Dives")and Anthoy Bourdain ("No Reservations")who he met through a cooking contest, Eddie moved ahead with his passion. It was an instant success and seems to be going well. He also writes a food blog and has several videos on his website that document much of what he has written in the book.

I enjoyed the book immensely. I found Eddie to be a fascinating character. However, readers should be forewarned; Eddie writes with passion and street language, so there are words and phrases that are both unfamiliar to those who don't get into hip-hop and many words that would be generally called gutter language. Nonetheless, I would happily recommend "Fresh Off the Boat" and wish Eddie Huang continued success.

Fresh Off the Boat starts with a refreshingly humorous tone and, at times, I actually laughed out loud. However, after the first third of the book it's all up hill reading. Eddie forgets to write for his reader and the book devolves into hip hop speak or slang that I didn't understand. He writes with plenty of raw language that gets old. Eddie also discusses things like what kind of tennis shoes to wear, hip hop fashion and selling drugs which I found boring. At the end, when he finally decides to open a restaurant, I found myself asking is it because he loves being a chef or is he simply doing it to make money.

HASH(0x93379e94) von 5 Sternen Missed opportunity to say something worthwhile 13. März 2015
Von Rowing gal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I usually love books that expose me to other cultures and experiences. I didn't care for this one. I wasn't turned off by language as some others seem to be, but I was turned off by tone. Rather than giving the reader insight, it's merely a personal success story written in a "I'm too cool for you" tone. I finished it, but I don know why.
