This is an excellent read. It is hard for Americans to realize what the Chinese people went through with Mao as their leader. I enjoyed the entire story and the writing was superb. I watched the movie after reading the book and would recommend reading the book even if you saw the movie.

It was very interesting and presented the life struggles of the people living during the Mao era. It was insightful from the perspective of the peasants during that era. It would make a great book discussion book.

This is the true story of Li Cunxin, a young boy growing up poor in China. He was selected to attend the Beijing Dance Academy and study ballet, eventually becoming a great dancer. Given the opportunity to train in Houston, Li Cunxin realized that much of the information he had been taught about the United States was false and that U.S. government officials weren't out to convert him to Western ways. Li defects to the U.S. by marrying another dancer. There is quite a bit of interesting information about the Cold War in the story, as well as heartfelt family snippets about Li love for his parents and brothers. A moving autobiography.
