    Paperback ì 糖 Epub ↠ 糖 eBookYou may wonder why such a low rating? Well personally I did not like it However before you dismiss this book as completely unreadable simply on the grounds of my rating let me first explain a little about the significance of this book and some of the others in its genre Am I making any sense? Please bear with me while I sum up a very brief history of contemporary China ‹ History blurb ›You must understand that China used to be a country that moved in cycles dynasty followed dynasty usually ruled by Han Chinese and nearly always by men but always according to Chinese traditions And those traditions go back 3000 years back to times in which Enlightenment in the West was far to be found The Chinese are proud of their middle kingdom a great country far superior to non Chinese civilizations And then everything changed around

    Paperback ì 糖 Epub ↠ 糖 eBookI think I liked not loved and hated this book at the same time It was good at the beginning and I found it quite moving The writing is like others say poetic and haunting tragic with an ounce of humour The love story with Saining to me didn't really get that old It did go on for the entire book but it didn't get old for me To me the book went downhill fast at the end with the disjointed narrating style Seems like Mian Mian didn't know where she was going with the story It got confusing at that point and I found myself jus wanting to get the book over with Anyways not a terrible read chock full of sex and drugs A good insight into underground modern chinese culture but not for you if you're looking for a heartwarming full of hope story

    Paperback ì 糖 Epub ↠ 糖 eBookThe English translation of this doesn't seem like English Look at thisBut once during a fight somebody had fired a gun and Sanmao had fainted in fear When he woke up he vowed to go straight and he took up singing songs by the Taiwan pop star Qi Tai From there he got into rock and roll The smell of air conditioning the smell of heroin real and bogus the smell of condoms the smell of blow jobs the smell of fast food take out containers the smell of frozen fruit the black and white Cantonese movies the smell of table lamps the smell of sweet rice porridge the smell of paper money the smell of the hotel manager the smell of vomit One day Little Shanghai was wandering around the hotel randomly pounding on doors and she finally pounded on mine She was holding a shiny red apple in one hand

    Paperback ì 糖 Epub ↠ 糖 eBookI love this book I find it very restful I do not like books that portray heroin addiction as heroic The persistent image of the artist as addict is a disservice to art and creativity Junkies have no imagination This book is not one of thoseHonestly heroin is nothing but glorified shitWhat makes this book appealing is the author's use of creative writing as a form of rehab Her imagination is redemptive Special praise is due too to Andrea Lingenfelter who has rendered the original Chinese into an English that is beautiful warm and poetic I like to immerse myself in it at the end of a stressful day like sinking into a relaxing bathBless you also The Book Depository

    Paperback ì 糖 Epub ↠ 糖 eBookI had a lovehate relationship with this book I often times felt like I was being dragged along through random unimportant happenings occurring in the narrator's life Right when I would feel like putting the book down for good an off the wall incident would occur grabbing my attention for the next 15 pages or so However I would eventually fall into the same feeling of boredom until the next incident occurredMian Mian's writing style was interesting and unique her lack of quotations during dialogue reminded me of Cormac McCarthy and required the reader to pay close attention to what was going on There was also a poetic and political tone to her writing which was engaging at times However the whole narrative reminded me of Kerouac's On The Road another book that I wasn't cr

    Paperback ì 糖 Epub ↠ 糖 eBookI wasn't particularly fond of this book whatsoever Going into the book knowing it was banned in China I was expecting something special What I found instead was a sophomoric sex drugs and rock 'n roll story that was dull and repetitive The racier drug laden parts of the book came across as very forced to me almost as though they were trying to be shocking The story didn't move in such a way that compelled me to read further but I did finish the book The latter half of the book was particularly hard to get through due to the switching narrators confusing me to
