5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting from Page to Page!, 4 Nov 1998
By A Customer
An absolute and thoroughly interesting saga and drama of the sons of Wan Lung. The book mostly follows the life of the departed son, Wang the Tiger. His mission is to have his own army and a son of his own. Pearl S. Buck skillfully details Wang the Tiger's desires, emotions and thoughts. Wang the Tiger removes his son from his sisters and mother to ensure the lad's education and guidance & preparation to follow Wang the Tiger's footsteps. This book is as excellent reading as "The Good Earth" and completely to the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome epic of struggle and famlies, 26 May 1998
By A Customer
Buck does an excellent job of providing a story of how men's inner desires and outer actions mold their lives and affect others. The sons begotten by Wang Lung the Farmer continue their lives giving us a window on this period in China, but the motives and events are universal.

4.0 out of 5 stars sad/excite/wanton/distaste/love, 17 Feb 1998
By A Customer
always realistic and warm in the sense that you are close to a family. The struggle of the grandson is very much like the inner battles wang lung had to contend with in the first book. love is always found and always conquers.

This review is from: Sons (The Good Earth Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
A worthy member of the trilogy. I had problems with the download at first and thought I was going to miss out on this one. But a thorough re-charge of the Kindle ( and a bit of a rest), and there it was!A wonderful read.

This review is from: Sons (The Good Earth Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
Having loved the Good Earth I was looking forward to reading the other two parts and this, the second book in the trilogy was nearly as good as the first. Worth reading if you enjoyed the original.

second in the trilogy and very good story....Buck describes well from her first hand experience of living in China. The reader is drawn in to another world.
