The Bitter Earth is a return to The China Pandemic's beginnings. The first half is the tale of what actually happened in those early days - the panic that ensued.

I felt this book was rushed to wrap up loose ends just to leave room for another book. I cant wait for it though!
I enjoyed this series. The characters were very likeable and well developed throughout the series. I would have loved to have more detail on some of the character relationships. There were a lot of time spent on some of the relationships at times and left you wanting more but then one book ends and there is a time jump and you are left with a lot of questions.
The way she wrote these books made you think about their situations and how they fit into this world.

The story was okay. I think the main character could have shown more emotion or could have been developed more. Some other parts of the story were there should have been anger, sadness, confusion it was just missing. It wasn't the narrator that was lacking in translation it just wasn't there in the words. I have read other books by Hankins this one wasn't one of the best. On to the next.
