    Wild Swans Three Daughters of China Free read ´ 100 Wild Swans Three Daughters of ChinaAt first I did not want to voice my opinion of this book since it cut so near to the bone and was such a profound shock to read in 1993 It was however the first book after reading Isabelle Allende that kept me awake for several weeks afterwards No other book ever managed to achieve thatIt certainly is a depressing book no beating around the bush about that but also such a courageous introduction to a life of people shut away behind the veil of communism My overall impression of the book was that it must have been eually painful for the author to write it as it was for her family three generations of women to endure the horrific takeover of Mao Tse Tung in China As with all Commu

    Wild Swans Three Daughters of China Free read ´ 100 Wild Swans Three Daughters of ChinaSimply put “Wild Swans” is a poor man’s Life and Death in Shanghai Reason being that that while the initial chapters about Jung Chang’s grandmother are informative and interesting as it gives us a peek into the life of people in Pre Communist China; as the book progresses Chang’s ignorance as she was a little girl at that time about the events happening around her becomes a permanent annoyance I am not saying that Chang was still ignorant about what happened in China during the “Great Leap Forward” and “The Cultural Revolution” after she grew up; she definitely knows her history but it seems that she has tried her level best to hide that in her book She would write something like My dad was very sad about the things that were happening in China but for me it was very difficult to understand it at that
