Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on October 8, 2016
Bought for a class, but enjoyed the reading. The book provides a lot of insight into various themes present in Chinese history, going into detail about class and social structure as well as societal pressures of the time. Shen Fu is telling a beautiful story about the life he shared with his wife, though there are times where the story is slow and a bit dry. Overall good read, and very quick to pass the time!
