Emma Deplores Goodreads Censorship Daughter of Fortune, while a good book, isn't about China. It's set in Chile and California.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Technically, that's what most Listopia lists are, Mysterious Scent.


message 4: by Hermien (new)

Hermien I've been led up the garden path by a few "best" listopia lists now and ended up reading some very disappointing books. It has made me a very wary of them and I have stopped looking.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I always look to see if a book I'm not familiar with has got many ratings, particularly if it's got more votes than ratings, which always makes me suspicious of a voting campaign and possible sock-puppetry. Some people try to game the system.


message 6: by new_user (new)

new_user Well, you can always start your own. "Better written books about China" or "Informative books about China" or "Authentic China," etc.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed, for not being about China:

Daughter of Fortune, by Isabel Allende.


message 8: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Turner I'm finding that a great many people put books up on list's such as this when they clearly have not read the book. I would like to ask them, "WHY?!!". I was just reading a review for a book by John Hersey called The Wall when I saw it was put on the "books about China" list. THE WALL IS ABOUT THE WARSAW GHETTO AND HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH CHINA OR THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA!!! What's even more laughable is that on the cover of said book there is a swastika flag with the usual red background on the cover, which doesn't exactly scream China. People that just vote any book onto these list's for the sake of doing it are ruining the credibility of the list's and taking a bit of the enjoyment out of these list's.


message 9: by new_user (new)

new_user That's the problem with crowdsourcing. Mention the books, Christopher, and a librarian will delete them.


message 10: by Richp (new)

Richp Christopher did correctly point out The Wall (Hersey) is not about China, and it is still on the list 23 months later.


message 11: by Shereen (new)

Shereen Please remove The Ghost Bride. It's set in Malaya, not China.
