A great insight into the Taiwanese identity during recent history Jan. 13 2012
By Timothy M. Durkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book tells a compelling story mirroring the question of the Taiwanese identity during very turbulent times as the island finds itself transitioning from a part of China to a part of the Japanese empire and enemy of China, and then finally to an ambiguous state after the defeat of Japan in WWII.
Awesome June 25 2014

Truly a aamazing piece. The authors style is perfect because it adds to the characters without using detail, it's how Zhuoliu Wu writes at times that captivates you.

Also the characters are amazing and I felt so connected to them. I felt that I was growing older as I was reading it, that I was there with Taiming.
