Journal Entry 1 by winggoldenwattlewing from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Friday, October 09, 2020
Few books have had such an impact as Wild Swans: a popular best-seller which has sold more than 13 million copies and a critically acclaimed history of China; a tragic tale of nightmarish cruelty and an uplifting story of bravery and survival.
Through the story of three generations of women in her own family – the grandmother given to the warlord as a concubine, the Communist mother and the daughter herself – Jung Chang reveals the epic history of China's twentieth century.
Breathtaking in its scope, unforgettable in its descriptions, this is a masterpiece which is extraordinary in every way.

Donated to the little free library in Narrabundah, ACT. Thank you.

Journal Entry 2 by winggoldenwattlewing at Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Saturday, November 28, 2020
A superb read; it was interesting and informative, telling, from the personal perspective of three generations of women - grandmother, mother, daughter/author - the history to the communist revolution in China. It gave me so much more perspective and information of the history than I was aware of. (Although I was not completely ignorant of events.) The cult of Mao. I couldn't help myself, but kept comparing it in my mind to the cult of Trump. What if! But there are more checks and guards these days - fortunately, and free elections (although I struggle to use those words with the US Electoral College). Barbaric, awful times. Poor people.
A very good read.
