This is the 5th Bryce Courtenay book that I've read. My only critism is that the book ended and I won't spend more time with "Brother Fish" and Jimmy. I felt the same about all the others too. His writing is magical and the stories and characters beautiful. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book.
This autobiography about Li Cunxin's life is much more than a story about an incredible ballet dancer. Life as a peasant under Mao and the propaganda about the Eastern world is simply unbelievable. You don't have to know anything about ballet or to even be interested in ballet to enjoy this beautiful story. It was simple yet powerful.
