Katie (ktmac_1) Not looking forward to this. I tried reading this book more than 20 years ago and did not care for it in the least. It was the only school book that I did not complete. I read the first 100 pages trying to give it a chance and could not suffer through the rest. Twenty years of aging I hope has changed my attitude and perspective. Hope I can finish it this time.

Kaye Wyly | 20 comments I hope you enjoy The Good Earth...it is part one of a trilogy which I did not know until I completed the book and one of my colleagues told me ...I enjoyed the Good Earth...a lot...hope you do too this time around...

Katie (ktmac_1) Thanks! I am going to give it a second chance. I dislike not finishing a book.

Jessica | 225 comments I remember enjoying it mainly because it was something different than I normally read at the time. I think it is more slice-of-life and maybe the reason you didn't get into it is because there isn't really any plot other than life.

Katie (ktmac_1) You know, that could be it! :)
