The writing is very informative and paints an excellent picture of what people in other cultures go through when trying to survive. There are a few different perspectives offered throughout the book which keeps things really refreshing. "
- "I love family sagas books. My friend recommended to me The Good Earth. It's by Pearl S. Buck and won a Pulitzer Prize. It's a tale of overcoming all odds to keep your family safe and fed. It's about a Chinese farmer that is very poor and that just wants to do everything he can to protect and provide for his family. His struggles are enduring. It's a beautiful book that I recommend to all book lovers out there."
