I choose the book 'Mrs.Pollifax on the China Station' for my Book ISU for school only because I saw the book on the shelf, and couldn't find anything else. I was pleasently surprised, though, to find myself getting interested in the book nearly from the very beginning. The author, Dorthy Gilman, had obviously researched the topics for this book very well, which definatley contributed to the atmosphere of the book. Although it wasn't a book that I could say, 'I couldn't put it down!' about, I recommmend that you read it because it is a great, interesting, and fun way to learn more about the culture and people in China.

While the book was very interesting, there was far too little action, which is unusual for this series. Normally, Gilman's Pollifax books put the main character into more actively dangerous positions so I found this one to be a bit of a let down. It did do a fantastic job (as always) of bringing the Cold War era to life though. Stephanie Clanahan
