A very interesting that provides insight into the lives of Chinese people from many walks of life. I don't know much about Chinese history but now I would like to know more. The stories of some of these people will shock Westerners. ( )

A very interesting book, that makes many different voices from within all corners of China heared (well, read in this case).
Stories told by many ordinary Chinese, that usually go unheared. And especially that majes them so interesting.

I wouldn't be me, if I didn't have one or two favorite stories. One of them is Staying a Widow. The book mentioned in that story Love must not be forgotten by Zhang Jie is a book I also read and liked.
A bit longer, but equally interesting I think is Builder. And the last I will mention here is On the Road, that is for completely different reasons very interesting.

To all people who are interested in China and its people(s), I recommend reading this book! ( )

Powerful. Compelling. Little snapshots into private lives that open up a world. Highly recommend this book. Wish it would have gone on for many, many more pages. ( )
