Found this book again recently while sorting through my cupboard. I had picked it up at a yard sale and forgotten about it. I've started reading it and so far have found it a very enchanting and readable tale. Will update when finished.

Just finished this one (actually I finished it last week but forgot to journal it). Beautifully written, poignant funny. I would heartily recommend it. The ending took me by surprise, which for me is also a joy.
I will seeking a good new home for it now.

My review for the other copy that passed by:
"It seems I'm into books on re-education at the moment, this is already the second book in a row that is about the Cultural Revolution, enemies of the people and the attempts made to re-educate them.

I liked the book. How the boys bend themselves in many shapes to get the suitcase filled with forbidden books that Four Eyes is hiding... And how they (or, more in particular Luo) is trying to impress the little seamstress with the books, the stories and how he tries to make her 'less peasant'. How that works out was an unexpected turn for me, and I don't think the boys would have thought of that either..."

Thank you Boekentrol for this book which arrived on Friday, but the post office was closed when I got home and also closed on Saturday due to the celebration of our Constitution (which was signed on 17 May 1814).

I'm looking forward to read this book.

A beautiful, little book. Easy read, enjoyable characters, and I learnt something! What more do you want in a book?
Now I need to dig out a book by Balzac, as I have never read anything by him.
