This book is broken down into three key sections and the thoughts within are organized as such. The first section refers to a commentary on China. Here, readers will find the thoughts of a man who is not always at peace with the decisions of his country. Chun gives readers a glimpse at what his reality is and how he feels about this. He dabbles with philosophical ideas and his views on them. The second section is a commentary on Islam. Chun is not pleased with how things are developing around the world and within China on this subject. The final section is a commentary on Western and other countries. As a writer from a western country, it is interesting to see how others perceive my country from a completely different perspective. By sectioning off his thoughts like this, Chun makes it easy for readers to get into a flow.
As the author is Chinese and has limited English skills, by his own admission, grammatical and spelling mistakes are expected. It can be difficult to read this, however, because of how the translation was done. There is no flow and sentences can feel choppy and uncomfortable. Chun’s thoughts on western countries are fairly archaic. His thoughts on gender roles and how the world can resolve its incessant need to keep fighting itself are also alarming. There are several passages in the book where Chun makes reference to how men and women should treat each other and what Japan can do to be seen in a better light from his perspective.
If anything, Century Sentence by Xu Xue Chun is an exercise in seeing how a citizen of a country as large as China views the world around him. The thoughts are fairly well organized although the translation could use a bit of work. It is an exhausting read, however, and not one that would be easily recommended. This book could be useful for those who are studying international societies or for people who are looking for a wildly different perspective on world cultures.

4、Trump opposes immigration and drug traffickers, not racism
5、The antagonism of Western society comes from the collapse of the free market economy
6、The Syrian president supports the "Muslim ban" because of their country's sufferings
7、Other countries in the world should properly learn from China's reform
8、Biological evolution is unscientific, but the creationism is correct
"Outside of work, I am a senior internet commentator, which is also called cynic-er. I have voiced thousands of articles in the internet since 2004, most of which had been deleted by the internet manager due to one reason or another. Although my articles were deleted because of their inappropriate things, I still think that my articles have influenced the political layout and development of China and the world."
I too am a "senior internet commentator"! I submit this Amazon review as evidence.
Truth in advertising, though; the author's ignorance and xenophobia is certainly a ready supply of "inappropriate things." Paging an Internet Manager.
