    Story
    (13)

    In September of 2005, the Peace Corps sent Michael Levy to teach English in the heart of China's heartland. His hosts in the city of Guiyang found additional uses for him: resident expert on Judaism, romantic adviser, and provincial basketball star, to name a few. His account of overcoming vast cultural differences to befriend his students and fellow teachers is by turns poignant and laugh-out-loud funny.

    John S. says: "Not quite his target audience I guess"
    "Narrator was lacking!!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. I love Chinese culture and this was well written and from the heart. But I did not like the narrator. Voice did not fit the age/image of the writer. Was he chosen because of his Chinese? I would have preferred to read the book.
    I have recommended that they read the book.


    What other book might you compare Kosher Chinese to and why?

    Too many!


    What aspect of George Backman’s performance would you have changed?

    The whole thing!


    Could you see Kosher Chinese being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Movie maybe (but it would probably not be a box office hit!)...not a TV series


    Any additional comments?

    Have been to China and could relate!!!!
