This book is a series of short stories, all reflections of lives of those who live in China. The scope of the stories is really broad, and I really enjoyed learning a little more about the culture, customs and personalities of China’s everyday people. I am not usually one to choose, or attempt to read, short stories. However, I had the chance to read this in an ARC copy, and jumped at the chance. China has always been of interest to me, and this was a chance to learn just a little bit more about it.
