I only get through on the first 60 pages and I don't like it at all. It is like cheesy Hallmark movie in a book. The plot sounded very intresting when I boughtet however, I am so sad it turned out to be this.

I really REALLY wanted to like this book and for the first 100-150 pages I did. And I know so many people love this novel. But it was somehow over compleceted yet not so detailed. The smaller twist has no indroduction and it's like 5 pages. Zetain is not so likable for me. It so black and white and I would not call this feminism. And don't know if I will read the second part.

It's been quite a few months since I 've read Pearl S. Buck. This book has a few short stories and most of them is very interesting. Mostly about the ,,old China" and and the ,,new China"

It was on my TBR list for a long long time and my Russuan language teacher insisted me to read it and it was amazing. Such a beuatiful tale and I learnt so much about Russian folklore and many new words.

I honestly did'nt really enjoy this book. There is a very few Agatha Christie's novel I do not like.

Ps. Now, after I read about this a bit more I got to known this was written for stage. It makes sense now.

The Last Empress | Anchee Min

This is the second part of Empress Orchid. I felt so sorry for Jehonala, she was so lonely but so strong. I don't know what she really was in real life because I've read very mixed opinions about her but in these books she is more positivish.

Empress Orchid | Anchee Min
post image
Pickpick

A real life story of Chine's last empress. I already have read a book about her by Pearl S. Buck but that was slightly different. It is the first part and it was good, very interesting story. I think my problem was again the translation, the script had no life in it.

Well, I was very curious about this book but I am kind of disapponted. First, the cover is awful. Second, the translation isn't very good. But it was published in the 80s.
I really want to live in Thule but the women-man role and stereotypes was very black and white. However, this is a first part of a trilogy and as I read it is better in the end but I will not read it.

I usually don't mind 1000 pages long Stephen King novel but I was really strugaling with the last 100 pages. But it worth it and He is very excellent to write about ordinary people and how easy to manipulate them.

A quite good Second World War story from Pear S. Buck. But again, somehow I could not feel the deepness of the situation.

It was so so so good! I never heard of this until I found it in the bookstore. It was advertised for those who love The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. Yes, it is quite similar but from a different perspective.

Ruthiella I read this as a teenager and loved it (and the movie too). 6mo

It was such a emotionally complex story. I could not blame anyone what they did because they were forced by their emotions. And I am so glad it was a happy ending I was so afraid it won't be.
