Read in July, 2009

The third book at the China that never was. Interesting, but somehow lacking some of the strength you may find in the previous books. Also, the initial lyricism of Bridge of Birds is hard to find here but for some excellent parts. This is something you already noticed on the second book The Sory of the Stone, but here it is clear.

In any case, you cannot avoid to be dragged to the China that never was...
