    "Too many cliches..."
    What would have made China Doll better?

    The lack of the cliches. The made-up singer suddenly has an epiphany, her husband is indifferent; a love interest is flawed and tortured, a strong type... I just couldn't get past the cliches


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dina Pearlman?

    Yes. I actually quite liked her narration, minus the French accent she portrayed. Other than that, I really liked her performance.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I enjoyed the writing style... it does wring out emotions and lets you feel like you are in the settings, whether in China or in a hippie's house during the 70s.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a light read... if you want to read something light and cliched that does in all fairness raise awareness of the plight of Chinese orphans, please feel free. The cliches just wound up too much for me.
