This novel was fairly pleasant to listen to, but the plot and characters were pretty light weight. The book is about a young girl of Chinese descent who, through being enthralled by the promise of Chinese communism and her own idealism, decides that she will run away from home and go back to China. She ends up in a commune and reality is much harsher than her dreams.
The story slogs along and towards the end the part which should be the most exciting is given very little attention. It’s over.
The reading was okay but not inspiring. Other than that, I don’t have much to say about this run of the mill effort.
