I've listened to many books now, and this one is utterly unreadable for people that are not familiar with Chinese names. You'll be lost by the fourth hour of listening.
I know little of Chinese history, and was excited about this book. However, I only listened to five hours before I gave up. I don't know enough to comment on the accuracy of any of the statements, it may be that Mao was really as evil they portrayed him, but it felt like slander and character assassination to me.
This biography needs a preface to explain the translation, of if it was written in English, to say a little about the author. My next sentence will explain my problem with Mao The Untold Story
Moreover, this book, which is written is a way such as I can not concentrate, is torture to read.
There are plenty of sentences like that in this book. And some really funny miss-used words too. I have never seen a house with motley brick walls, but I would like to.
