It became an object of balzax, almost. The novel has been translated into twenty-five languages, and finally into his mother tongue after the movie adaptation. What next, little China?


I liked the cover a lot, by the way. This book was only so-so. Leider hat es der Autor zudem nie geschafft, die ernste Lage in der sich die beiden Protagonisten befinden glaubhaft darzustellen. I loved the premise. The impact that these books have on the characters’ lives, however, is difficult to understand.

I should have loved this. There’s not much to really say, except that it’s about these two teen friends who have to be “reeducated” but the reeducation doesn’t seem serious as they can travel around to other villages, steal forbidden books and read, as well as go to movies to become the village storytellers.
