Narrated by Anthony Heald.
I’m at a loss of what to say here.
I don’t think just telling you what this book is about will capture the awe which might describe my reactions. I think that this might be one where all description will fall flat. Like comparing a TV view to a real view of a mountain or a beautiful sunset.
The real thing is just better. If I were to describe this book, I think I would risk making the book sound dull.
There’s a life force to this book that a review can’t capture.
Does this mean that I am going to recommend you run right out and read it? Nope. You’ll have to take the risk by yourself. But there is SOMETHING. Something to this book that is just impressive beyond knowing it is about a Chinese farmer’s life.
Did I like this farmer dude? Nope, not really. He had his moments but mostly, he was just a man. Now his wife? SHE WAS INCREDIBLE. Hellz yea, cuz she was a WOMAN.
Ok, that’s all I gots to say. But there is so much more to this tale, I realize.
We will discuss this in our book club at the end of the month. So far, I think everyone has liked it.
I know I was surprised to like it so much.
Click on the image above to go read about the book if you must have some kind of plot synopsis, etc. Even better, click on Nymeth’s review and read all the comments (Just click here.)
I am very glad to have read this.
This concludes this audiobook review post.
