Audiobook is narrated by Simon Vance. I bet if I read it it would get three stars. I gave The Samurai's Garden three stars. How many would I give "A Hundred Flowers" if I listened to it with Simon Vance? I might test this!

Simon Vance could nudge you a bit, I'm guessing. ;)

Chrissie It would be interesting to see how I would react to it!

It certainly would! This story is missing something for me. I love her writing, but I should have been more moved by the story than I was.

Remember, though, it is all about the people, the relationships, and light on the historical detail. You won't learn much about the Cultural Revolution or the "Hundred Flowers" Initiative (or whatever it's proper name was).

Chrissie I have pretty much given up the idea of reading this book. I don't want to choose a book just because it has a good narrator!

I have to get used to people's shelving systems! When it popped up in the feeds, I didn't realize it meant you had "demoted" it to just "maybe" status.

Same thing happened yesterday when a friend moved a book from "currently-reading" to "to-read" shelf. I thought she had added the book!

Chrissie The worst new "improvement" at GR is the position of the box where you add a new book. Many times I have added books already on my shelves.
