  • Not my style Sep 22, 2011
    by Patricia M

    I have read several of Ms. See's other books, and I really liked them. This one I just couldn't get into - the storyline was not what I had expected.

    I would like to read her new book however - I enjoyed her "Shanghai Girls".

    The selling experience was a definitely good experience, and I would like to do business again with this seller. I have not had a chance to read the book yet, but as soon as I can I will.

    LIsa See the auther of Peony in love tells an amazing story about Peony, a chinese teenager who was to be married. Falling in love was a lot of the chinese girls dreams when the parents shatter it by making an arrangement marriage. I kind of hate it that she died and had to watch her love with other women. Peony died before she got married so as a custom in china they were not to make offerings to the maidens that were not maried yet, so therefore they remain with the human but invisible.A sad story to read too.

    Peony in Love by Lisa See is the first book I have read in such a long time, which transported me to another time and place. Lisa See sweeps you along into the life of Peony and her culture, rituals and beliefs of ancient China. Lisa See's Peony In Love was the first book by the author which I had read, but after doing so, immediately read two others.
    I don't wish to give too much of the story away, it is in the unexpected where you find the most delight of this book. If you want to be immersed in culture different from your own, be swept up in a heart wrenching romance and carried into another world ... Peony In Love is the perfect vehicle to get you there !

    IF YOU'VE EVER REALLY BEEN IN LOVE, YOU'LL ADORE THIS BOOK. YOU CAN REALLY RELATE TO THE CHARACTERS IN THIS BOOK WHILE STILL FEELING LIKE YOU'RE IN A FAIRY TALE; BUT WHO REALLY KNOWS.? CAN WE REALLY SEE OVER OUR LOVED ONES AFTER WE DIE?!

    I DIDN'T WANT THIS BOOK TO END. AS THE MAIN CHARACTER MEETS UP WITH RELATIVES LONG GONE, SHE GOES ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY OF WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO EACH OF US, THE INTENSE LOVE YOU FEEL FOR THAT SPECIAL SOMEONE. I LOVED THE ORIENTAL RITUALS AND CUSTOMS THAT WERE A PART OF THIS GREAT STORY. YOU TRULY BELIEVED IN ITS' MAGICAL POWERS.

    A VERY UNIQUE STORY, NOT TO BE MISSED!
