 Mao's China thru 4 generations

The author's life takes you from her birth in a privileged family in Imperial China, though the civil war, revolution and Japanese occupation. Mayhem and political supidity reign thru great swathes of this tale. Her dislocation and enforced travel around a China in turmoil makes an absorbing narrative. Truly an education that shows us a world from a prsonal perspective that is poorly understood in the west.

 Stunning

This book is superb. It's a big old beast at 720 pages but you will fly through it. Fascinating and beautifully written. Please read it!

 Brilliant Insight into Jung Chang's life

Wild Swans - Three Daughters of China by Jung Chang is a book about three generations of one family. The grandmother is a warlord's concubine. The mother is a young idealistic communist, both her and her husband are members of the Communist Elite and this book features their ordeal during the cultural revolution.
Chang (the daughter) was briefly a Red guard,she has also been a "barefoot doctor", peasant,steel worker and an electrician.
The book is also a record of Mao's impact in China.

This book is an unusual window into the lives of three women throughout the history of China. This book if gripping, at times moving and in parts even uplifting. It details the cycles of violence and drama that is endured by her own family and millions of others too.

 An enduring novel you won't forget

The hefty size of Wild Swans put me off for years but I whizzed through it. A truly inspiring true story of three generations of women living through the Communist revolution in China. The courage and willpower shown through extremely hard times will stay with you long after you've finished it.
