I was completely swept up in this book that bridged from colonial times up through martial law and into democracy in Taiwan... And also wound to Berkeley, California. I've never been to Taiwan and now am interested in going. This book gave such a rich experience of its history, expressed through the lives of many compelling characters.
The narrator is fallible – we see that – and yet we stay with her, chagrined sometimes at what she's doing but also understanding it. I especially enjoyed all the sensory details in the novel. The writer takes time to depict just what the narrator is feeling in her body and experiencing in her surroundings. It makes the book so lush.
I listened to this book around the house and while driving in my car, and it was something I wanted to return to as much as I could. Highly recommended.
