Interesting book so far. I picked it up last night to help me fall asleep after watching multiple episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it's good, though I only got up to the point where I learned that the Chinese character for "home" is derived from two characters meaning "roof" and "pig", which in turn came about from those ancient Chinese people who were lucky enough to raise pigs and not be itinerant and therefore had a roof over their pigs and therefore had a home.
