Sons begins where The Good Earth ended: revolution is sweeping through China. Wang Lung is on his deathbed in the house of his fathers, and his three sons stand ready to inherit his hard-won estate. One son has taken the family's wealth for granted and become a landlord; another is a thriving merchant and moneylender; and the youngest, an ambitious general, is destined to be a leader in the country. Through all his life's changes, Wang did not anticipate that each son would hunger to sell his beloved land for maximum profit.
At once a tribute to early Chinese fiction, a saga of family dissension, and a depiction of the clashes between old and new, Sons is a vivid and compelling masterwork of fiction.

it was very good!
I liked the book a lot. I did not like it as much as The Good Earth, so I gave it 4 stars. It is very similar in style and performance and at times Sons seems a bit slow, but I didn't find myself getting bored. I didn't find myself getting overly invested either though. It was a good, solid read.
