Yu Hua ☆ 4 review

Summary ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Yu Hua Read & Download 兄弟 Xiōng Dì 104 Ing roller coaster of life in a newly capitalist world As comically mismatched teenagers Baldy Li a sex obsessed ne’er do well and Song Gang his bookish sensitive stepbrother vow that they will always be brothers a bond they will struggle to maintain over the years as they weather the ups and downs of rivalry in love and making and losing millions in the new China Their tribulations play out across a richly populated backdrop that is every bit as vibrant the rapidly changing village of Liu Town full of such live. When I first picked up this book in Chinese in China I was younger and my heart was fainter I did not have the courage to finish even the first half Years later I picked up this novel again and finished reading it in almost two separate sittings For someone who spent than a decade in China partially rural and than a decade in the US the character descriptions and actions are very much close to home and real I wish I did not have to read the final 13 of the book but that is just the absurdity and grim reality of a culture under phenomenal and even abnormal change The raw and at times explicit language used was appropriate in reflecting simple lifestyle of the suburbia animal instincts during the cultural revolution and crude behavior of the newly rich and newly corrupt Like every other period of rapid change some flourish some falter and others perish Overall the book is heavy with lots of comic relief and heart warming moments One common thread was how peaceful and even blissful death becomes in the face of life without dignity and hope people find solace and hope in death kind of reminds me of scenes from Wuthering Heights If one can no longer imbue life with purpose one can only seek to fill death with meaningOne of my favorite excerpts from the book which I m going to translate below It brought me back to my childhood when I too smelled admired and sometimes licked the precious snack swallowed my saliva before wrapping it up and putting it back without even a nibble Why is your mouth making nose soundsSong Gang chuckled I didn t eat it I m just smellingLi Baldy asked Why don t you eat it Song Gang swallowed his saliva I can t eat it it s for you smelling is enough for me I wept many times throughout the book but not as wholeheartedly as I did when reading Yu Hua s To Live Towards the beginning I was still crying about the innocence of children Towards the middle my tears carried the weight of helplessness towards Fate In the end I felt as if I was weeping for an entire lost generation This book is one unforgettable journey
