Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
Just couldn't get into the story even though it sounded fascinating in the description.

Wild Swans - Three Daughters of China
Detailed yet very readable true story of three generations of women and how the Communist and Cultural Revolutions in China during the late 1940' through the 1970's affected their lives and their families. I would like to read another book by Jung Chang.

Chinese young women
Excellent for those who love history and would enjoy the revelations of the power that women can weld.

Really good story
I learned much from this book about growing up during three eras in China. It was so well written that I will now read this author's book on Mao.
I highly recommend this book.

Read this book!
This historical retrospective records the lives of three generations of Jung Chang's family. It documents the Chinese Revolution and Mao's dysfunctional dictatorship. With China's impending rise to world dominance, this important work is a must read.
