    Kindle 碧奴 MOBI ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ 碧奴 pdf, 碧奴 PDFMaybe 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 bo

    Kindle 碧奴 MOBI ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ 碧奴 pdf, 碧奴 PDFA remarkable novel that is the re telling of an ancient myth Su Tong not only re tells the myth but fleshes it out considerably and yet his style is so spare and skeletal and offbeat that this fleshing out feels genuinely strange in form and thus perfectly in tune with the dead men and ghosts that are such a large part of the story who are also spare and skeletal and offbeat Even when the ghosts never appear they are constantly alluded to the threat of their presence saturates the emotions and

    Kindle 碧奴 MOBI ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ 碧奴 pdf, 碧奴 PDFA 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

    Kindle 碧奴 MOBI ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ 碧奴 pdf, 碧奴 PDFI 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

    Kindle 碧奴 MOBI ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ 碧奴 pdf, 碧奴 PDFI wasn't familiar with the myth of Meng Jiangnu upon which Binu is based As such the book didn't really resonate with me and I found it at times hair pullingly ponde

    Kindle 碧奴 MOBI ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ 碧奴 pdf, 碧奴 PDFSu Tong is the writer of the immensely depressing novel Rice which is about poor Chinese people who make each other even tormented than they already are and ends wretchedly than it begins His latest novel Binu and the Great Wall translated from the Chinese by Howard Goldblatt has much the same effect on the reader but not only due to the unsympathetic characters and unsettling plotTAXING TONE AND ODD IMAGERYThe text of the bleak and puzzling novel is made difficult to digest by odd use of tone For example Binu meets a group of aggressive women who are about to be sold as slaves in a “people market” who comment on her appearance “Look at her delicate moth eyebrows her phoenix eyes and her willowy waist a classic beauty“ p66 Here the baseness of the situation and the malevolence of the protagonists are not reflected in their language In another example Binu reminds her captor of his mother grandmother and sisters “As he cried he called out ‘Mother Grandmother
