I definitely learned about Communist China. I also learned that my culture is so different from the author's that it becomes tedious to read about a successful physician who remains sickeningly loyal to a family that detests and abuses her. The concept of "disowning" a family member is foreign, AND the obsession with wills and inheritances.
I don't get it.

Reading this book, I learned a lot about Chinese history and culture. Though I don't often read memoirs, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It was fast paced, descriptive in the right places and especially interesting. I would recommend it for sure.
