"This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic tells the poignant tale of a Chinese farmer and his family in old agrarian China. The humble Wang Lung glories in the soil he works, nurturing the land as it nurtures him and his family. Nearby, the nobles of the House of Hwang consider themselves above the land and its workers; but they will soon meet their own downfall. Hard times come upon Wang Lung and his family when flood and drought force them to seek work in the city. The working people riot, breaking into the homes of the rich and forcing them to flee. When Wang Lung shows mercy to one noble and is rewarded, he begins to rise in the world, even as the House of Hwang falls" -- from publisher's web site.… (altro)

This book has a huge emotional connection with me. This is the first book , I read along with my mother, discussing its nuances and progressing as the character progresses.

Why is it beautiful?
Cause it is extremely simple to read. It does not bombard you with difficult sentence structure or very uncommon word.
The story seeps into your thought process.
It shows two sides of the same coin and it mesmerized me as a little girl.

I disliked this book a great deal when I read it for a high school English class. I read it again as an adult to see if life experience would improve the appeal of this book. Nope. Still loathed it. Perhaps it was a recent escape from an abusive relationship that tainted my perspective, but reading this twice in a lifetime was enough for me. ( )

This is another book for our work book club- and it was a really good read. I can see why it won the Pulitzer. I'm glad I read it. However, its not one I want to read again.

On the top, its a simple book about a farmer trying to survive with the bare minimum. The farmer seems satisfied, but on a deeper read, he wants more. With themes of family and cycles, doing whatever it takes for survival vs honor, its not so simple.

At times, its seems too simple. For example, its missing the larger community, and how Wang Lung and his family interact with them. The story also skips years, with only a mention of ages (eg the oldest son wants to marry). This is intentionally vague by the writer, but at times, a bit jarring for a reader.

And last, this is not an easy book to read. Its simply written, but it deals with themes of starvation, survival, and all that comes with this. ( )

I can see the objectively good literary technique in this, but I utterly hated reading it because it's so relentlessly bleak and the protagonist is so horrible. The only main characters I found bearable were O-Lan and Ching.

I loved it. Offers a complex, engaging portrait of a life not only away from the mainstream of history where I live, but away from the mainstream of its own country as well. ( )

...This was what Vinteuil had done for the little phrase. Swann felt that the composer had been content (with the instruments at his disposal) to draw aside its veil, to make it visible, following and respecting its outlines with a hand so loving, so prudent, so delicate and so sure, that the sound altered at every moment, blunting itself to indicate a shadow, springing back into life when it must follow the curve of some more bold projection. And one proof that Swann was not mistaken when believed in the real existence of this phrase was that anyone with an ear at all delicate for music would have at once detected the imposture had Vinteuil, endowed with less power to see and to render its forms, sought to dissemble (by adding a line, here and there, of his own invention) the dimness of his vision or the feebleness of his hand.

He had no articulate thought of anything; there was only this perfect sympathy of movement, of turning this earth of theirs over and over to the sun, this earth which formed their home and fed their bodies and made their gods. The earth lay rich and dark, and fell apart lightly under the points of their hoes, Sometimes they turned up a bit of brick, a splinter of wood. It was nothing. Sometimes, in some age, bodies of men and women had been buried there, houses had stood there, had fallen, and gone back into the earth. So would also their house, sometime, return into the earth, their bodies also. Each had his turn at this earth. They worked on, moving together — together — producing the fruit of this earth — speechless in their movement together.
…he said nothing still, she looked at him piteously and sadly out of her strange dumb eyes that were like a beast’s eyes that cannot speak, and then she went away, creeping and feeling for the door because of her tears that blinded her.

Wang Lung watched her as she went and he was glad to be alone, but still he was ashamed and he was still angry that he was ashamed, and he said to himself, and he muttered the words aloud and restlessly, as though he quarreled with someone, “Well, and other men are so and I have been good enough to her, and there are men worse than I.” And he said at last that O-lan must bear it.
My house and my land it is, and if it were not for the land we should all starve as the others did, and you could not walk about in your dainty robes idle as a scholar. It is the good land that has made you something better than a farmer’s lad.
