5.0 out of 5 stars English Patient pales 8 Feb 2008
Format:Hardcover
I can only applaud the comments above. After seeing the film, with Jennifer Jones and William Holden, I knew I must encounter the real Han Suyin. Her descriptions of life in China and HongKong after the second world war are poetic. With her, we reverance the beauty of nature. Her relationship with Mark Elliott is profound - two committed, discriminating individuals find joy in each other, amidst cultural difference and societal prejudice. These lives are real, on a profound level.
For a panoramic view of history of equal beauty and pain, to know that people can feel as these two people feel, there is nothing like this volume. The human journey is reaffirmed.

5.0 out of 5 stars REAL LOVE AND HEROES 29 Jan 2007
Format:Hardcover
The feelings this book transmitted were at times so strong and alive I had to stop reading. It's a story of a kind of people I sometimes think don't exist anymore: vitally alive, poetic, whole and absolute. Set in Hong Kong, it is a story of a beautiful and tragic love, and a photograph of the situation in China in 1949-1950, crucial years of the communist revolution. This book gave me, a European who has never travelled to Asia, an insight into the Chinese culture and has made me curious to know more. Highly recommended read.

I read it years ago and wanted to read it again. When I came across Han Suyin's obituary it reminded me of her style and how much I had enjoyed her.
