Journal Entry 1 by italianeowyn from Prata di Pordenone, Friuli Venezia Giulia Italy on Wednesday, April 07, 2010

Ogni libro, ogni volume che vedi possiede un’anima, l’anima di chi lo ha scritto e l’anima di coloro che lo hanno letto, di chi ha vissuto e di chi ha sognato grazie a esso. Ogni volta che un libro cambia proprietario, ogni volta che un nuovo sguardo ne sfiora le pagine, il suo spirito acquista forza...

Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down it's pages, its spirit grows and strengthens…

L'ombra del vento // The Shadow of the Wind, Carlos Ruiz Zafòn

Thanks very much for the book, italianeowyn! I love Xinran's writing :) Thanks also for the other goodies: bookmarks, pens, keyring and some flowery thing that had broken on the way... A lovely package :)

Journal Entry 5 by wingAnnimanniwing at Espoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Wednesday, February 23, 2011
This is a heartbreaking account of the lives of women in China and, as always, Xinran writes in a touching, engaging way. Recommended reading, absolutely!

Next off to Chania as per request.

Thanks so much! After reading one book by Xinran, I've been wanting to read this too!

Journal Entry 7 by wingChaniawing at Kokkola, Keski-Pohjanmaa / Mellersta Österbotten Finland on Wednesday, August 24, 2011
I have been reading several books about China during the past few years and the more I read,the more I want to know. This one was very special - because of just like the front cover says : Hidden voices...
This is an eye-opener in a way, but sadly I can't say I'm really surprised. I loved this book, it is well written, not over-sentimental. Can't wait to read more books by Xinran.

"Hidden voices" is just what this book is. Hard reading, not any easy book.

Next to arjamaaria. I can't say "Happy reading" in this time.

Book was very good and horrid in the same time. But I'm very happy i I read it. Because I know nothing about life China before that.

The book arrived on Friday last week. I'm joining the Finnish ABC-challenge with this "x" - author :)

Thanks, arjamaaria!

Journal Entry 15 by Ametisti at Nurmijärvi, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Monday, June 04, 2012
I read the book in two sessions; had to keep a couple of weeks in between. The book was brilliantly written so that when the horrible descriptions of the womens' experiences really got to you, then the author turned the focus into something else. As a reader you had time to recover and be prepared for the next horrors.

As a book this is brilliant. I have had enough of the genre for a while, I've read a few books on Chinese women in the past couple of years. I need a break :)

This book may go to Gambia school library project, or as an offering at the Finnish forum. I haven't quite decided yet.

Thanks for sharing this book!

Thank you for the book Ametisti! :)

Journal Entry 18 by MiuM at Kaarina, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Tuesday, April 11, 2017
How heartbreaking stories. This is an interesting book, even though it always makes me sad and depressed to realize the wrongdoings and evil in the world.

Journal Entry 20 by wingpippiswing at Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Sunday, May 07, 2017
Since it's short stories, I'm taking a chance with Xinran... As I told MiuM at the meet-up, Asian literature tends to have a little too melancholic undertones to be uplifting or refreshing reading. Instead it leaves you with a bitter undertaste that you just can't shake off. But, life has to have its harsh lessons as well.

Picked up at today's London meet.
Lovely to meet you, pippis.

Journal Entry 22 by wingrahar109wing at Ash Vale, Surrey United Kingdom on Thursday, January 24, 2019
What sad stories. I knew life in China could be hard, especially during the Cultural Revolution, but I'd no idea things had been so dreadful for some women. A very sobering read.
