I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

I wasn't overly fond of this book. I know culturally Chinese women were sorely undervalued in decades past and I'm intellectually aware that was the norm accepted by all. That being said- I am too American to read something from a Chinese man's point of view without being disgusted and disenchanted by him. I thought the main character was self righteous, selfish, and immature even in his years as a very old man. If this were a movie I would wait for it to be on cable and even then I would only watch it if there wasn't any better options.
