posts on 4/10/2006 12:07:17 AM I have a same background and a contemporary as the author. I used to be intoxicated with the Balzac's novels. Reading Mr. Dai's novel brought me back to the dark and savage times in China (1966-1976). At that time the southlands and southlands teenagers became victims from Mao's politics. They had no school to go and no any recreation. The only way to quench their thirst is to read the banned novels which are west classic in Chinese translated. In this novel the details and particulars described vividly and exquisitely. By my experience, when I was too young to understand the real world at that time, I dreamed in my ideal realm, far away from the real world. I confess that the power of the west literature influence on me for a long time in my life. . Therefore I am not wondering that the wrenching conclusion: seamstress pursuits a beautiful dream of her city. At the end I would like to recommend the novel as deserved.

Lincoln posts on 1/20/2005 12:27:39 PM How does the author's use of point-of-view add or take away from the story? It seems logical that the story be told by one of the boys, as it is their thirst for and discovery of the books that propells the plot. What if the headman told the story? What if the point-of-view was third person omniscient?
