it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction
Read in September, 2010

I'm not big on mysteries but this one caught and held me. The settings were interesting--the working-class end of Beijing and the lesser cities of China. The main character is a female vet of the current Iraq war who came out with a pile of emotional disabilities plus a bum leg--not the sort that gets much attention. It's an interesting look into the controls used in modern China to keep a lid on too much "togetherness" (a contradiction in a Communist society?) and the downsides of the art and online gaming worlds.
