Well, my book group loved it, and it did have a lot to talk about. I personally wonder if Wang Lung didn't suffer from some severe type of emotional disconnect; the only things he really seemed to care about were his mentally disabled daughter, and the land. Even his wives and sons seem to only be viewed as care-takers and inheritors of the land.
