If you could sum up Chinese Literature: A Very Short Introduction in three words, what would they be?
This is a condenced book on Chinese literature. The book itself is informative as a crash-course of many decades of literature from the Middle Kingdom, but the person who reads cannot pronounce Chinese. This leads to the problem that when you hear a new Chinese word or name, you have no idea what this word or name is (and it's very difficult to look it up), because Backman as the narrator botches all tones and prononciation. He does a fine job of reading, but I wish they would've had someone else pronounce the Chinese words.
