Death of a Red Heroine
Death of a Red Heroine

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping modern Chinese detective story with cultural & political inuendoes., 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose to read this while travelling in China. It is a must for anyone familiar with Shanghai as there are many references to landmarks which bring the story alive. Although a tale, it reflects the lifestyle and politics of the day and is a page turner as the reader wants the truth to be exposed.

5.0 out of 5 stars An insight into early 20th century Chinese society., 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this while travelling through Southern China and it brought to life the dilemma facing the changing society in early 20th Century China as young people became more aware of the Western world and its different attitudes to family life and, especially, the emerging role of women. Visiting the various courtyard houses on the tourist trail one could imagine the formality of family life portrayed in the novel. Beautifully written in a genteel style that suited the era and story.

Meets my expectations. Neat, controllable, but instructions not at all clear. Must be possible for Andrew James to get this corrected!!!

They function, but not very efficiently. Probably would not have bought them if I had known this before placing order.

I bought this charger specifically to charge my iPad Mini, as it was described as suitable. It actually DEPLETES the battery when connected with the proper Lightning cable!
