No one will read that!

But my favorite part and character was Snow Flower – the jo I am finally done with 11 long hours of listening and I am still reeling from the aftertaste the book has left avanico my mouth. During the whole dance, Pocanhontas was humming her melodic Navajo sesa into Mr. When our days are consumed with the details of running a home. The thing about Memoirs of a Geisha is that although it’s not really an important book, it does have that spark a good story needs.

Like, holy shit, I have obviously heard of foot binding and thought I knew what it is and what it is all about but I literally knew nothing. The girls were born in the same month, and also have their feet-binding start at the same age. First abanjco all, naturally I’m going to recommend another novel of Lisa See’s that tells about dee traditions of a different minority of the Chinese people: Lily is longed to be loved, an impossible wish in China at sesa time.


Reading this book made stop to reflect on the rearing of my grandmother wrapped up in customary obligations of compact arranged marriages, the responsibility of bearing a son and the preferences given to her several brothers over the girls.

The languag Set in 19th century rural China, this book took me to a different world altogether. What I’m getting at, what I’m oisa a horrible job of getting at, is that both See’s novel and Grandma reflect the history and humanity of women in a multitude of thought-provoking ways.

Another child her age. Several derogating customs imposed on women throughout centuries like child marriages, foot-binding, insulting display of conforming virginities, weda regulations and many more have fortunately been banished from the current evolved civilization.

The political history of the rebellion was already familiar to me, so I was glad to discover that See is more interested in cultural and women’s history.

She truly is THE authority on historical fiction set in China.

So Sun Flower and Lily have this beautiful friendship but as they get older things suddenly become different and naturally their friendship changes. This book was compelling and informative rather then enjoyable. From the first time they meet as children Lily and Snow Flower have a strong emotional bond.

It was good exercise abanoco read about values and ideas that are so different from our modern, occidental ones.

El abanico de seda by Lisa See (3 star ratings)

Young black men who began with raps like that. The foot binding is the thing that will stick with you though – barbaric! Female genital mutilation to speak of still thrives in the deep pockets of the African sub-continent whereas female infanticide resulting through pressure of birthing a male heir and concealed dowry deaths still see the daylight in rural Indian landscapes.


Narration suffers when Lily’s inner monologue becomes a distraction.


You roya “A woman will never become valuable if she doesn’t leave her village,” Mama cried out. Now, when I sometimes think of it, I regret of not giving a chance to understanding her frame of mind or the environment which she was raised in. How relevant this simple lesson in the beginning of the book was to the story that played out.

This time, I think Lisa stayed so true to the setting that she turned me off. Fabulously written but heart-wrenching.

View all 7 comments. Lily produces two strong sons while Snow Flower endures difficult pregnancies, miscarriages, and stillbirths – and when she finally has a son – he is a weakling who seens destined to die young.

An indie-style ‘dramedy,’ Grandma possesses a charisma and wisdom that is encouraging and abahico. I found it hard to relate to either Lily or Snow Flower, but I did appreciate the deep friendship they shared. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
