Journal Entry 1 by maroula on Sunday, December 07, 2008
Loved it, loved it, loved it! This book is an emotionally gripping, roller-coaster ride through the lives of three fascinating women. This is without doubt one of the best books I've ever read and it can be considered as a pretty amazing history lesson too! It is a powerful, haunting story that takes you through act after act of what human beings are capable of doing on this Earth, sometimes in the most brutal fashion.Based on the lives of three generations of women, it starts in turn of the 20th century China, when the Qing dynasty was starting to crumble and that way of life was coming to an end, taking you through the civil war, Mao coming to power, the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution before ending in the 70s when the author leaves for Britain.
