Buck traces the whole cycle of life: its terrors, its passions, its ambitions and rewards. Beloved by millions of readers, her brilliant novel is a universal tale of the destiny of man. Though more than sixty years have passed since it won the Pulitzer Prize, it has retained its popularity and become one of the great modern classics. 'I can only write what I know, and I know nothing but China, having always lived there,' wrote Pearl Buck. In THE GOOD EARTH she presents a graphic view of a China when the last emperor reigned and the vast political and social upheavals of the twentieth century were but distant rumblings for the ordinary people. This moving, classic story of the honest farmer Wang Lung and his selfless wife O-lan should be mandatory reading for those who would fully appreciate the sweeping changes that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese people during this century.Hide synopsis

This book was exceptionally written and easy to read. It was difficult to read, though as you delve into these characters and feel so much sympathy for them. It truly makes you realize how blessed you are, not to have to make the sacrifices that these people did. This book draws you in and makes you ask questions of yourself that may be hard to answer!
