I’m reading a book called “ Wild Swans” about 3 generations of Chinese women during the turbulent 20th century- its enthralling and can’t?

Put it down!!! Has anyone else read it? Ok so I put it down for a few minutes to write this , but I’m getting right back into it

    Great book, I think it has become one of the stock supplemental reading texts for Chinese history courses.

    Yes, I've read it, some years ago and still vividly remember it. It would make a great movie !

    Yes, lots of people have read it, that's why it's still so popular decades after first publication.

    It's an eye-opener for people who don't know anything about China.

    It was a must-read (for women at least) when it came out in paperback in the early 90s. I read it before I went to China and it was fascinating to read about the Cultural Revolution, something that had been going on (largely unreported) through my youth.

      As a guy I’m loving it also. My grandmother was half chinese so it kinda resonates

    I read it many years ago not too long after it was first published, so maybe 1992? It's still in my bookshelf. :)

      It’s a great book, paints a historical snapshot of the Japanese occupation and really takes you into the period
