The story was a little confusing because it kept switching from first person to third person with no warning and made some parts of the story hard to follow . Overall it was a good book and plenty of detail and it was a great glimpse into the life of the chairmans last wife. Enjoyed reading about her early begins and her fall from power after Mao died .
And a bit convoluted. Nowhere near as good as Wild Swan. Madame Mao narrator voice very annoying.
Although Madame Mao had many faults this story explains the complexity of her character so that one feels a great sympathy for her in many ways. She was a product of her time and yet she was obviously very talented in her field and was indeed very ambitious. This book also lends another insight into the character of Chairman Mao Zedong. I enjoyed the book greatly.
I love novels and I love history, so this audio book ticked all the boxes for me. The narration was excellent. I thoroughly recommend this book
