I read this book a few weeks ago, and I keep thinking about it. It has so many of the things I love in fiction - setting so well described that I can feel the breeze, characters so authentic I've known them forever, and a story that won't quit. Add to that Liu's lyrical prose and the historical context, and you've got an unforgettable and important story. I'm really glad I read this book.
