45: Shanghai Girls

One of the most depressing books i’ve ever read

pretty much everyone dies…

i’ve read her other book: Peony in Love, and it was so frustrating and depressing i’m just like WTF-ing the whole time.
And I know that chinese stories are all tragic. This isn’t even like Romeo and Juliet or something where at some point in the story there was happiness.

there’s almost no happiness in this entire story, seriously.

i do not recommend it unless you like that kind of thing….


im gonna watch something happy now, tangled :D

but her writing style is very smooth, very descriptive, it makes you cringe because of all the things that she describes.
this book was recommended to me by my co worker, and she really loves this author. And she’s a best-selling author, i find it hard to believe that people are willing to read about such depressing things.

im serious, everybody dies, and nothing good happened… seriously nothing

next week, Jonothan Safran Foer
