    From within the hopelessness and terror of China's Cultural Revolution, Dai Sijie has fashioned a beguiling and unexpected story about the resilience of the human spirit, the wonder of romantic awakening, and the magical power of storytelling. "An unexpected miracle," raves the Los Angeles Times Book Review, "a delicate, and often hilarious, tale."

    What made the experience of listening to Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress the most enjoyable?

    The wonderful narration as well as the flow of the story made the book the most enjoyable audio book i own.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I woud have to say the narrator, as he was realistic, down to earth, and in touch with the situation without being -in- it. It made the book realistic, as well as pleasurable. It avoided the dreaded "me me me" aspect that so many fiction books have today.


    Which character – as performed by B.D. Wong – was your favorite?

    Luo, as the satirical tone carried through very well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I cried.
