An epic story of agrarian China.
A really different world than the one I know, but certainly familiar in a few ways. Very absorbing story.
Very good Chinese story of peasants, hardships, and love.
A Pulitzer Prize Novel
Though written by a white woman, having lived many years in China, I suppose she was familiar enough with her subject. I would be curious to know what the kind of people she wrote about, thought about what she wrote about them, were it possible.
It is interesting to read about a foreign culture, though it be frustratingly different from the way you were raised. In the protagonist, Wang Lung's eyes, when his wife bore daughters to them, it was considered bad luck, and they were even denoted as slaves, and indeed many were often sold into slavery when the family was poor. Maybe it's only what poor Wang Lung deserves, when chances occur that transform him from a poor farmer with a former slave for a wife, into a landed, rich man with endless cares, who is forever worried with troubles, when he only wants to enjoy his riches. White woman writing an Eastern culture or not, Buck has valuable lessons for her readers.

Pearl S. Buck's epic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of a China that was -- now in a Contemporary Classics edition. Though more than sixty years have passed since this remarkable novel won the Pulitzer Prize, it has retained its popularity and become one of the great modern classics. "I can only write what I know, and I know nothing but China, having always lived there," wrote Pearl Buck. In The Good Earth she presents a graphic view of a China when the last emperor reigned and the vast political and social upheavals of the twentieth century were but distant rumblings for the ordinary people. This moving, classic story of the honest farmer Wang Lung and his selfless wife O-lan is must reading for those who would fully appreciate the sweeping changes that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese people during this century. Nobel Prize winner Pearl S. Buck traces the whole cycle of life: its terrors, its passions, its ambitions and rewards. Her brilliant novel -- beloved by millions of readers -- is a universal tale of the destiny of man.
