As usual, Bryce has written another interesting novel about a point in history that is fascinating and has allowed another set of characters to survive by their natural intelligence, and kindness to fellow man. I enjoyed learning the history of the Pacific campaign of WWII, also. I highly recommend this book.
didn't find the characters engaging. I really didn't care what happened to any of them.
absolutely, I already have. Really a creative story line, good characters, and great performance. It was a book that both my husband and I enjoyed.
The creativity of the work that Daniel has created.
no I have not.
I love learning about the Chinese culture of the time and how entertaining Bryce and his team of researchers make the story. I don't often listen or read books twice but this will stay in my library...who knows maybe I will.
"Chairmen Mao", she reminds me of so many matriarchs I have met
I Can't recommend this book enough. A book that teaches you the lessons of history while being highly entertaining is very rare. This is true historical fiction.
In keeping with Courtnay's usual style of a downtrodden person who triumphs in the end, this was good but not as good as Brother Fish and Power of One. It was nice to have a female main character for once but I do think he writes better from a male perspective.
I read Barra Creek and enjoyed it ever so much more. The characters in this book weren't as interesting.
