Me pareció bastante interesante. Pero sentí que la "legibilidad" no era lo que necesitaba para calificar el libro con 4 estrellas (como en "Realmente me gusta"). Una desventaja para mí en mi lectura fue que no No tengo suficiente familiaridad con ese período de la historia china y los nombres chinos desconocidos fueron discordantes para mí.

Stones was critically acclaimed, a best seller, and Oprah selection (the latter two probably redundant), but I didn’t get around to it until I’d read her latest, and critically acclaimed, Children and Fire, which I really liked, but probably would have skipped if I’d read Stones first. Not that I didn’t come to like it, but it took a loooonnnng time. They overlap a lot in time, place, characters, and even themes (esp. how ordinary Germans acted while the Nazis took over), but Stones is slow and Dickensian in scope, while C&F was spare and much more focused on a few individuals. I’m bad with names, especially foreign, and as usual had a hard time keeping track of who was who, esp. when references were far apart. And it seems like everyone in the village had a part to play, large or small. Birth, death, life, loss, love, hate, revenge, forgiveness; it’s all there. Read it if you’ve got lots of time to spare
