It was well -written and I did like the characters.
4/5 "A Pocket Full of Dharma" by Paolo Bacigalupi - Great worldbuilding; recognized a lot of elements of the modern China I know in here.
Also liked that the author left it up to us to figure out if the "good guy" is actually "good" or if the "bad guy" is "bad."
