Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
The book was fascinating. An interesting description of a little known (in the west) period of chinese history.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Lin?
Almost anyone, I think. Ms. Lin puts a heavy, portentous emphasis on almost every other word. It's intolerable, and it makes the book pretty much unlistenable. The READING DESTROYS all PLEASURE in the BOOK. You get the point.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Painful to listen
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I could not get more than a couple of chapters into this. The narrator is truly awful, and makes the entire book unlistenable. It's a shame, because the subject is very interesting.\
