    "Certain to inspire discussion about freedom and justice.&q

    "Certain to inspire discussion about freedom and justice." Yes, as for those beautiful pastries and flower stitched clothes: Which peasant under feudal china could afford anything else except mudpies and the little rice that the land owning lords left for them? The Chinese revolution and subsequent cultural revolution is one of the most amazing developments in human history. The first time that the majority of working people rose up and attacked all things contrary to their class interest, symbolic of their thousands of years of silent indignation and subordination to kings, royals, monarchs, masters and capitalists. It is too bad that human society developed into classes as a result of undereducation and animal instincts, but at the rare revolutionary moments of history when the systemically suppressed masses rise up and demanding before their bourgeois rights of freedom of criticism and freedom to exploit, the right to self-determination of labor, production of all working people and the freedom to partake in society and its riches, created by themselves.

    Great insight into the Chinese cultural revolution.

    This was interesting, very easy to follow, and has some emotional events that take place. It is interesting to see how strong Ling is in the situations that she encounters. A quick read and well worth it.

    Great Connection to the Chinese People who experienced the Cultural Revolution

    After studying China's modern history in political terms, this story was captivating as it brought me more understanding of the people's livelihood at the time and how it was affected. The novel was written in a way that the emotions of the characters could be felt. Stories like this help me learn more about the time period in a compelling way, especially when they are written as good as this.

    I Loved This Book!

    I thought this novel, despite its size, was a fabulous read. It shows the view of a young girl(Ling) in the time of the Chinese Revolution. Ling is the daughter of two doctors. When Mao Tse Tung enters Ling's life everything she loves begins to go away. When they take away her father Ling is brave and starts standing up for what she believes is right. Although I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read it, i especially recommend it to 11-13 year olds or people who are interested in the Chinese Revolution.

    A Child's View of Communist China

    This is a gripping tale of an 8-year-old girl¿s experience during China¿s Cultural Revolution. With this book set in the 1970¿s, both of Ling¿s parents are doctors and she has a wonderful life style. When Comrade Li moves into the building and occupies part of Ling¿s apartment, her world is turned upside down. The Red Guard invades her life and the lives of innocent people around her, taking away all types of personal and intellectual freedoms. Ling also has a very frustrating experience in her school life because of the Mao regime. Students who read this story will develop a better understanding of communist China and a person¿s will to survive.
