From the back I was expecting this to be a gripping and exciting love story. I didn't get that. The grand romance is actually very brief and as far as I can tell, nothing actually seems to have happened in China. What I did get instead was a veiw of China that I didn't even think would still be happening. This all happens on the year that I was born, which is only 23 years ago. I wonder if this book is banned in China? Makes me want to read more books about this sort of thing. I did enjoy this book very much even if it wasn't what I thought it would be like.
