L'ho scelto perché mi ha subito incuriosito la trama ed ero curiosa di sapere come si sarebbe potuto portare avanti una storia così . All'inizio è stato abbastanza leggero, poi pian piano è diventato il protagonista lo struggimento d'amore che porta alla morte e poi oltre . E' profondamente interessante per capire le credenze religiose, le usanze e le tradizioni della Cina del 1600 e in parte di quella attuale.
Una bella scoperta. ( )

An interesting premise with mediocre execution: The Peony Pavilion tragic-romance opera is the instigator of female longings and ambitions in 17th century China, at a time of political upheavals and mayhem. The central character's romantic encounter is gripping and engaging, and coincides with her intellectual awakening. This momentum is interrupted when [SPOILER ALERT] the main character dies about one-third into the book. Unsurprisingly, having a dead main character slows and drags the rest of the novel, which wallows too much in Chinese ghost-conventions and becomes almost a paean to female masochism, sinking into high-faluting whining about how no one pays attention to women. There's a valid point to be made, but it's made at too great length and insistence. It's the same problem I have with Virginia Woolf: Get over it already, lady. Stop complaining and start working -- as a writer. ( )

I am glad that I listened to it rather than read it. I enjoyed the beginning because of the historical background for that time period and the one before. I have read a lot about foot binding so I already knew many details about. The play that was given as a 16th birthday present, I was also familiar with. But the main character's story was incrediably tragic and could have been prevented. From the time that Peony kept her eyes when she had a chance to see her betrothed, I knew that it would be very difficult to listen to the rest of the story.

I made it to the end but it was depressing that I could never listen to it again. The author wrote beautifully but I would not attempt this book if you are depression prone. ( )
