There is not even enough information for readers to fill in the gaps on their own. They steal a suitcase filled with classic Western novels from another man being reeducated, and decide f enrich the seamstress’ life by exposing her to great literature. The English translation released in is titled Mr. Apr 20, Christian rated it did not like it.

There, he acquired a passion for movies and became a director. Can someone please let me know what audience you think this is suited for.

After his return, he was able to complete high school and university, where he studied art history. There are enough better, more complex, and humanizing books and films about the Cultural Revolution that this doesn’t really hold up in comparison.

Ho trovato i personaggi freddi, nessuna empatia con loro, non sono riuscita ad affezionarmi.

Nor is it possible that adjusting the time on one enthralling looking clock from the city would confuse villagers into thinking that their city transplants didn’t have to work that day. Part of me wanted to credit the book for creating a condition of clarity in a contradiction or dialectic, as the surrealists apparently tried so hard to do.


He even alludes to some physical problem–as though he were injured on the job and left disabled–but he does not describe any injury nor does he cindse handicapped during the rest of the book. How did this thing become an international best seller and get rave reviews?! It gave me a reading list of canonical Western texts without showing what it is that makes these texts so powerful.

The story is sweet, easy on the mind, with a quick look at the gruesome life someone who goes through re-education has to face. He doesn’t care about her education, he doesn’t want to turn her into a better, brighter version of herself. He has also created Ma and Lou as the means for books to reach the seamstress, and having done so, cared for them no longer, and if the reader has gotten invested, too bad. There’s not much to sartz say, except that it’s about these two teen friends who have to be “reeducated” but the reeducation doesn’t seem serious as they can travel around to other villages, steal forbidden books and read, as well as go to movies to become the village storytellers.

Balzac And The Little Chinese Seamstress

Is the author trying to show that the individual autonomy Westerners value so greatly is a double-edged sword? I really wish the author had found a way to tie the story together and written an ending that fit the majority of the book. This was in fact just one-third of the book. A quick description of this book Communist China, remote mountain villages, the power of books sounds fine.

Jan Edmonds I’ll check out the movie. Maybe because it was originally French and the current average French person and I don’t see eye-to-eye on matters of taste? Before turning to writing, he made three critically acclaimed feature-length films: Got tedious pretty quickly. She actually could have been a lot more interesting had the author bothered to exert himself with her development.

Do you think it is appropriate or is the romance a little too much? Thanks for telling us about the problem. Combine that with a cliched and unimaginative view of canonical art, a dreadful third act, and a completely unnecessary temporary shift in narrative voice, and you get an awful, awful book.
