Okay, this book is not happy. However, there are some really moving scenes and I think it gives a good description of a very different culture. However, I don't know that this is always positive, because it's so different than our current American culture it can leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. Still, if you don't try to judge the Chinese too harshly based on our standards, I think that you can learn a lot from this book.
