    Second in the trilogy that began with The Good Earth, Buck's classic and starkly real tale of sons rising against their honored fathers tells of the bitter struggle to the death between the old and the new in China. Revolutions sweep the vast nation, leaving destruction and death in their wake, yet also promising emancipation to China's oppressed millions, who are groping for a way to survive in a modern age.

    Story

    I enjoyed Pear Buck's first book, "The Good Earth" and Anthony Heald's excellent narration so much that I couldn't wait to get right to the second book. I wish I would have noticed that Anthony did not narrate the second book. Adam Verner would make an excellent GPS turn-by-turn voice guidance narrator about five or ten years ago. Very matter of fact, robotic, and completely strips the life out of the rich characters that Pearl Buck created in the first book. It got a wee bit better towards the end, and I enjoyed the book overall, but I'll be avoiding any book narrated by Adam in future, for sure.
