I really enjoyed Lisa See's ancestor's story of their arrival in California. So I was anxious to read her latest book, however, it isn't something I would recommend. Her obsession with the woman's plight in ancient China interferes with her ability to tell the story. I have stopped in part 4 and am not sure that I will finish it.
The story is just so repetitive and boring that I can't believe I managed to finish it. I figured out the big groom mystery right away. If you are expecting something as good as Memoirs of a Geisha, you will be very disappointed. Very little story, very much whining.
