    "I learned so many things about Chinese culture and traditions by reading this book. Lisa See has a way with words that makes it so easy to understand foreign concepts, and I easily sympathized with the book's characters despite the cultural and temporal differences."

    "This book was boring. I could hardly stay awake. I think writes need to understand because their stories are historical, it doesn't call for them to be boring, dry and lack substance. This book seriously shuts me down from reading any Lisa See books again."

    "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a great story that helped me pass time during my flight to China last year. I thought that the story line was very heartfelt and I enjoyed all of the characters in the story and their personalities. "

    "Though this is fiction, it shows incredible research. I often spend time in Southeast Asia, especially Thailand, which while removed from China, holds some of the same traditions. I eat up all the books on the culture, and Snow Flower is one of the better ones. However, unrelated to the book itself, is the medium; I recommend reading this on the Kindle, which allows you to see footnotes on some of the traditions which may be unfamiliar to some."

    "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan seems to be a very good solution for books set in foreign lands. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is the epitome of being set in a foreign land, as the book actually takes place in China, following the story of two girls communicating in secret via fans."

The writing style of Lisa See is imaginative and she captures nuanced and meticulous detail of 19th century China. I was amazed at the world she creates and was just drawn in to the characters and the story of the Snow Flower. Give this one a read!"

    "What an incredible read! I was very skeptical of bringing this book to my book club but we were all engrossed by the story. By the end of our discussion sessions, we were all raving about this story and would absolutely recommend it to others. "

    ""Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" was certainly best non-romance novels with female protagonists that I have read lately. It allows one to dive into the Chinese culture through the eyes of innocence. Great read for anyone who loves history or travel."
