Having said that, I found this book interesting at times, for instance: judging by theBeginning of the book, I thought I was in for a great reading experience but, then the book became involved in the minutiae of The Buda religion, and that's when I found myself skipping pages, which by the way, to my surprise did not make me loose the thread of the story. In other words, this book was way to long and while it had its moments it was not a page turner and therefore, the 3 stars.
This novel brings ancient China to life the way that I never expected English-speaking authors to be able to do.
Buy it, you won't regret it for a moment.
I read a lot of historical fiction, and there are two types of books....those you can't put down, and those that make you feel "why I am I continuing to read this when I've got so much other stuff on my Kindle". This was the latter.
