really liked it

Oh this is such a sweet novel! It was very enjoyable and fast read. I was more than once burst out laughing in the public transport! But humour is not everything and even not the main thing. This is story about extraterrestrial difference between two cultures told in very original (and undoubtedly very funny) way. Also this is story about love, its different forms and how love means one thing here and something very different somewhere else, even the word “love” doesn’t have the same weight here and there (I must say I prefer Chinese meaning).
There are numerous little pearls in this novel and if I start naming them there will be no end so I’ll leave you to dive into this linguistic, culinary, emotional, sexy, philosophical … implosion between these lovely covers.
