The Good Earth - Pearl Buck

The Good Earth (Enriched Classics) The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
I've been wanting to read this book for a long time and I'm so glad I finally got around to it. Books about China are always favorites and this is probably the best I've read. It was written in the 1930's and shows that people are people wherever and whenever they live. Pearl Buck did a great job developing a wide range of characters that could be placed in any book about a family rising from poverty to wealth. The complicated interplay between family members kept the pages turning.
