Journal Entry 1 by wingcliff1976wing from Regensburg, Bayern Germany on Sunday, August 23, 2009
My mom sent this us for some pleasure reading fodder. It's good, in my opinion — less gripping and more difficult to stick with, in Sarah's. The ending struck me as rather abrupt. Still, for me, this was a valuable glimpse into the secret (to me) world of China's Cultural Revolution woven into a compelling story. Mostly, while reading it, I kept asking
Where the heck is this going?

…and now, a few months later, upon reflection, I'm starting to wonder if that was part of the point.

I plan to offer it to fellow bloggers meeting up in a few weeks in Munich.
