Occasionally you read a book that expands your knowledge and your humanity. This book does so. Occasionally you find a book worth reading twice because the art in its writing is so fine. Occasionally you find a book worth reading twice because what it says is so important. The book is both of those things. I hate guessing what will last and become "classic" because to many great books aren't, and too many mediocre books are; but for me this book is that combination of art and philosophy which warms my heart, enriches my mind, and brings me joy. For me it is a classic.
Good: The book has a straightforward storyline plus a puzzling legality to figure out.
Better: The characters are interesting and their interactions seem real.
Best: The word and phrase crafting is uncommonly well done.
Bottom line: Come for the story. Stay for the writing.
Note: You may use Kindle’s dictionary feature much more than usual.
This book was so well written. I went on to order Becker's Chinese trilogy of books from Amazon and am now reading the last book of the trilogy. This author is an amazing, complex story teller, not to be overlooked.
I couldn't believe I'd never heard of this author. Hollywood made a movie based on this book.
