Yep, you read that right.
Made it about 200 pages in. I can’t do 560 pages of this, this will send me spiraling into a depression. For what Kuang is doing, speaking as an African- American female who studied Mandarin for over 10 years, this is amazing. The takes on racism and translation are accurate, genius. The footnotes? She nails it.
However, this book is making me hate reading cuz it’s just depressing to me.
I’d rather concentrate on other books in my TBR. I may pick this up at a later date.
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
