did not like it
Read in November, 2011

I really wanted to like this book. I'm familiar with the rape of Nanjing and wanted a more personal perspective. This wasn't it. Did anyone else find the narrators word choices jarring? It seems to me that a supposedly educated woman in a university setting would not have such an apparently low class vocabulary. I just couldn't get beyond it to appreciate the story.
