This is a fabulous story - extremely well written but should not be abridged. I would have given it five stars had I listened to the entire book. It needed the extra flesh.

The Narrator was awful. Some of her voices sounded like 'Yoda' from "Star Wars"... To me it ruined the story. This is one of the few times that I really liked the movie more than the book.

I had read this novel many years ago and needed to re read it to lecture about it. I loved it. It contains so much information on Chinese culture post WW2 and how our context impacts on not only our own lives but our children's lives, especially how behaviours and habits in our relationships can be intergenerational. After listening to it I also revisited the movie and it too is great. I want my adult daughter to read it now. So much to learn from this novel and so much to enjoy. The narration was very realistic and added to the sense of empathy the characters evoked in the listener.
