I read about 50% in earnest before I started to skim the pages In the beginning I found this book uite enjoyable but I soon found myself very frustrated with the main character Binu A lot of terrible things happen to the poor woman but she was not prepared at all for the journey she was taking on so I found it very hard to sympathise with her

Summary Ó eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Su Tong

Knopf Canada welcomes one of China’s most acclaimed and bestselling writers–author of Raise the Red Lantern–to the list with a fascinating retelling of a magical story–already an international bestseller in China and Europe Through Binu’s extraordinary story Su Tong illuminates one of China’s most mag. Maybe it's because I'm an ugly American but I didn't like this book I'm giving it two star because of the wonderful writing in the beginning and in other places so it's two stars for styleI knew about this legend before I picked up this book so I wasn't coming into the story as a total know nothing I also haven't read anything by Tong before and in all fairness I should point out that I haven't read much in the way of Chinese literature In truth part of the problem I had with this book could be due to translation issuesThe first 80 pages of the book are pretty good Tong does a good job setting up the whole myth It's true Binu feels like a type than a person but sometimes that works in book I liked the frogBUT and this is a little bit of a spoilerThings go wonky There really is no other word for it There is this huge okay not huge but it felt huge section where Binu faints and then gets sexually molested While I can understand this would undoubtably occur because of a the male dominated culture b she's traveling alone Tong's description lingered way too long on some aspects of it almost as if he thought the reader would get some type of happy out of it Now this could be a translation issue; I haven't read enough by Tong to know It however put the reader in an uncomfortable position of voygeur It was strange The reader wasn't put in the view of the victim but almost in the view of the molestor It also didn't help that some of those molestors were young boysI almost put the book down but I prefer to force myself to read things that make me a little uncomfortableSadly the book never seemed to get uite back on track to the end Binu starts on a journay yet the trip is described in jumps Some things just seemed put into the story for no good reason It also feels like Tong takes a story for women and drags it kicking and screaming into a story for men I know it sounds sexist but that's what it feels like

review 碧奴 by Su Tong

碧奴 by Su ToIcal myths In Peach village crying is forbidden But as a child Binu never learnt to hide her tears Shunned by the villagers she faces a bleak future until she meets the man she will marry iliang A few years after their marriage iliang disappears Binu learns that he has been transported hundreds of miles and force. A wonderful myth but this retelling of it lacks energy I don't know if the fault for this lies in oversentimentality on Su Tong's part or through some less than insightful translation but this uickly became very skimmable unlike Su Tong's other books I would recommend easily Rice or Raise the Red Lantern over this one
