    "After reading this book, I realized the reason why this book is considered a classic, and why it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1931. It's an honest story that goes directly to the point without airs or graces, providing a great portrait of Chinese culture prior to the revolution."

    "I remembered reading this book in high school, and I wanted to give it another go. I'm so glad I did! 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."
