Each legend will fade over time, each will have a strong bitterness behind the setbacks, the reason is because the know how to live free and easy choice, indifference is the reason why it all came to a realization. Please do not re-obsessed with me I am only a legend, although I was reluctant, but I still say that you still remember me even though I was wandering, I'm never lonely - because of the lonely Stay with me.
This is a fairy tale, this article from

Your review caught my attention. Though I am fond of this book, I think you articulated some points that have been nagging at the back of my brain for awhile now. I'm now curious about reading Said's book. Have you ever read any of the works by Lisa See? If so, do you see some of the same flaws in her writing as well?

I've not read Lisa See, but is there something of hers you'd recommend I read?

I really relate to this review. I was even the same age when I read the novel! I adored it then, but thinking back on it I feel ashamed of my enjoyment. I think if I reread it today I would be writing angry comments all over the margins. But still, I have such a positive emotional response when I think of the book....

Lisa see is a fun read and addresses more political issues. She is a novelist however unlike Edward said. Who I would call a political scientist maybe. Or an intellectual . I liked See's Shanghai Girls but there some hard to believe plot lines and gaps as well.
