I loved this book. The scope of it surprised me with its look at history, culture and day-to-day life. You certainly can't understand everything about China by reading a couple of books, but this book and Hessler's River Town have made China a little more accessible for me. The narrator, I believe, did a great job. He sounds like a native english speaker reading for other native english speakers.
First of all, I love Laurie King's writing and Jenny Sterlin is a remarkable actor. But I must admit, my mind wanders when listening to Oh Jerusalem. It's not the slower pace. I'm almost halfway and I still don't understand why Sherlock and Mary are wandering around Palestine. I feel a little lost. The book hasn't captured my interest....but...I will finish it. The Russell series is wonderful and I feel it's important to tough it out.
