This is a China seething with desire, engaged in a slapstick fight with its past, and hell bent on the future. Inside the Red Mansion is the first book to capture the giddy vibe of contemporary China and its darker vulnerabilities.
"By turns delightfully surprising and slap-across-the-face sobering....This must-read, can't-put-it-down tale shows the China only hinted at on the evening news." (Publishers Weekly)

Good story, solid audio production
What made the experience of listening to Inside the Red Mansion the most enjoyable?

None in particular.
Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?
All were OK.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
The Chinese government's level of reaction to its runaway economy, in contrast to the old-school form of centralized planning and top-down controlling from the communist-Mao-era that seemed to dictate the future of the country.
