There was very little plot to this book, and much of the language was ridiculous - and occasionally too foul without need.

This was not well written. The characters were predictable and wooden. And the language was way too crude. I doubt I will read anything else by this author. I had not found her earlier books this offensive.

Absolutely awful! I quit reading at page 28, and I pretty much never don't finish a book. Characters were disgusting. I wish I could give it negative stars.

Boring, boring, boring. I waded through this book, although I'm not sure why because it was worse than the last one, which I didn't enjoy either. This one does get a plot of sorts near the end, so if you really want to read it, I suggest you skip the first 510 pages and start with Part Three. You won't miss anything.

Although it was interesting to learn about life in 17th century China, I found this book very hard to read. The style did not hold my interest, and the same information could have been conveyed in far fewer words. The plot seemed very contrived and the characters one-dimensional.

I found the jumping around in time to be very confusing. I would have preferred a straightforward time line from beginning to end. The forward and backward in time did not seem to add anything to the story line.
