Format: Hardcover
About a year ago, I started to listen to audiobooks as another way to "read" more. The selections I usually make in this category are books that I think are probably really good but that might take a bit more effort to read. That it, they are of a subject matter of which I know little, are really thick, and so on. Shanghai Girls is about two girls living a wonderful life in Shanghai before their father gambles away their futures and they enter into arranged marriages and move to the United States. I learned a great deal about China and the Chinese way of life and experience of moving to America in this book. The story itself was very, very good. I was engaged right from the very beginning to the end - and, in the end, I wanted more. I don't know that there will be a sequel of any sort, but there is still a lot more story that could be told. I really enjoyed the writing style - the story just seemed to flow with the right amount of detail while, at other times, longer periods of time could be covered more quickly. I will definitely seek out other books by this author to learn more about China and a Chinese experience of which I know very little.

This was a surprising book. I read it for my book club and did not expect to enjoy it so much. There is so much detail and as disturbing as it was, I found myself riveted. A great read, includes some history and leads you right into the sequel, Dreams of Joy.

After a two wee trip to China reading this book has brought me back. Set in early 1900's you learn about the culture and traditions that are so important through two young women who have lost everything but survive. I would suggest this to anyone even if you have not traveled the Asia.

Format: Paperback
Strong sisterly bond ties this book together. Even though their bond is strong, I find them missunderstanding eachother until the very end of the book. Tragity and misfortune falls onto them so abruptly into their carefree lives though they bravely move forward into a hopeful future. The perception of the characters change throughout the novel,which I found, made the story intresting. Although it is not my favorite one of Lisa Sees' novels, it was still an enjoyable read that takes you back to a place and time where you have never experienced before.
