Overall an engrossing story, that piqued my interest in learning more about the British settlements in China before World War II and the opium trade. At times I found the main character to be a bit immature and idealistic, but I suppose that is how anyone would be had they suffered a similar fate. I did feel the ending to be sort of a cop out, and would have liked to have seen more development of the story during the war years, but for the most part I enjoyed this book.
