The book was ok but not of the compelling quality of "Becoming Madam Mao."

A fascinating story based on the early life of Pearl Buck in China, with possibly fictional characters to help tell the tale. "The Good Earth" was a shocking discovery in my teenage years, of life in China, so this was doubly fascinating. Now to read more by this American Chinese authoress.

Good ar must read for Gary

I enjoyed reading this story about Pearl S. Buck's youth and life prior to becoming a noted author and Nobel Prize winner. I found it a bit slow getting started but it became quite enticing as the story moved along.

Excellent book, I would defininetly read again. Terrific author Pearl Buck,look foward to reading more of her books,

Fictionalized account of Pearl S. Buck as child friend of completely fictional Chinese girl. Chinese girl is narrator and it goes through her whole life. Pearl S. Buck and family had to leave China in late 30's due to civil war and murderous intent toward all foreigners.
