Jin Xing is a former prima ballerina, one of the brightest stars of the Shanghai Ballet. But her journey to international fame was fraught with difficulty, because Jin Xing was in fact born a man.

I was looking forward to reading these memoirs, but although it was a quick read, it left me a bit disappointed. I thought the story was a bit too superficial and lacked depth and character. Maybe the original language it was written in (French) is a bit more insightful...
I still liked the story.
Now reserved for a sweepstake.

Oh, I'm the decoy :) Book arrived while I was on holidays, than you!! Not entirely sure if I've already read this (or just several other Shanghai-related memorials) but we'll see when the time comes...

Released 2 yrs ago (1/3/2020 UTC) at Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Jin Xing has an interesting story to tell, but unfortunately doesn't write about it quite as well as one could hope... and she's certainly not too modest when describing her incredible looks and talent :D Also, some parts were a bit confusing, like bits of Chinese/army bureaucracy that an outsider doesn't necessarily get without more thorough explanations. But it's an entertaining read about an important topic, glad I got the chance to read it.

The book moves on again as part of Global sweepstakes :)

Received in the mail as part of the Global sweeps!! Not read this before so I'm interested to discover the story!!

Interesting story, but comes across as a little bland..... "superficial" has been used in earlier reviews and I'd agree with that. Doesn't have much in the way of depth ....... but a very easy read.

I did not have a clue about who is Jin Xing so this read came as a total surprise. Quite interesting as far as the Chinese culture and the process of gender change operation are involved, but the book is definitely lacking of depth and impartiality.
