I am so pleased with the narrator - I immediately looked up all the other books that he has read. His voice is clear as a bell and the book itself is a delight. I would never have imagined the story of porcelain being quite so fascinating and now I find myself making my way to museums to admire their porcelain collections. I've been reading along with the physical book, which is also a treat because it's broken up into small paragraphs and divided into sections by moments of history or discovery - it's like reading a travel journal.
I will certainly be reading Edmund de Waal's other book, The Hare with Amber Eyes.
What would have made The White Road better?
The "Hare" was magnetic with the draw of family, 1890s Paris, Jewish families trading grain and the artifacts of brilliant life. The White Road had no grip; no life derived from the Hare.
What could Edmund de Waal have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
History, personality, emotional investment.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
