Song of the Silk Road (2011)
language
English
3.1 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: A great idea that suffers from poor execution. I've read Yip's previous novels so I am used to her writing style which can be off-putting for some. I enjoyed reading about Lily's journey on the Silk Road. I was engaged and curious about her journey and the tasks she needed to per...
Petals From The Sky (2010)

English

review 1: Although the book was well written I don't have any background knowledge in Buddhism, Chinese art, or poetry and I couldn't relate to the main character at all. At times, the story reminded me of a Victorian historical romance. I chose to read this novel because I thought that Me...
Skeleton Women (2012)
language
English

review 1: A young woman is trained from childhood to be an assassin and a spy. She infiltrates one rival gang to help the other out, and becomes infamous in Shanghai as a skeleton woman, one who will cause many to die for her. I rather liked Camilla's POV, as she slowly came around to real...

language
English

review 1: Edit: I was too nice in my review because its too easy to criticize this book but now I think I should - the main character, Xiang Xiang, is often fickle, arrogant, spoilt, selfish and shallow - some of this may just be due to her culture rather than personality, what she's been ...

review 1: Where do I start? I love to read Chinese historical fiction, but this doesn't actually seem to be the focus of the book. I stopped reading this just about as soon as I started. Thankfully I read the reviews of the book to see that my suspicions of this not being a good book we...

review 1: Sexy and provocative! A young lady in New York gets a mysterious offer for millions of dollars if she fulfilled the wishes of a mysterious aunt. Her aunt wanted her to retrace her own travels along the Silk Road. Lily travels to China, where she complies with her aunt's bizarre a...
Płatki z nieba (2011)
language
English
3.02 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Certainly not my favorite book of all time. Mainly, the main characters don't resonate well with me. I appreciate the author's portrayal of the search. The main characters are all seeking Zen mind, and don't seem to realize how disconnected they are from themselves and one anothe...

review 1: Peach Bloosom Pavilion is the story of Xiang Xiang and her journey into life as a famous courtesan. The book was recommended for those who enjoyed 'Memoirs of a Geisha', but while I did enjoy the former, I found little joy in this read. It some parts of the story seemed predictab...
