5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely engrossing, 2 May 2010
This review is from: Factory Girls: Voices from the Heart of Modern China (Paperback)
I bought this book on a bit of a whim to have something to read while on a holiday visiting family. I will admit that beforehand I knew almost nothing about contemporary China, and also didn't really have any interesting. I can't stress enough how engrossing this book is - beyond any educational level it is extremely well written. I had to ration how many pages I read a day to make the book last the duration of the trip - could not get enough. The people and situations are fascinating, and it really feels like you're getting to glimpse into a world you otherwise wouldn't. I can't recommend this book highly enough, it sparked for me a major interest in China, and it has done the same for everyone I have told to read this book.

i did not like this book at all and expressed that, because it was so so annoying to read, amost every page is repeating itself, i ve given this book only one star, unfortunately amazon site choose not to publish my commentary , it is not fair play from them ,because they must leave all customers express their opinion , even though it would be negative
