Mingzhi is born to be a mandarin: as the formidable Master Chai's first grandson, his life is mapped from the moment of his birth.

But as the foreign devils begin to encroach on China, Mingzhi is torn between two cultures; he must make his choice between the past and the future.A sweeping story of rebellion and discovery, Little Hut of Leaping Fishes traces one man's journey to find a life of his own in the slipstream of historic change.… (mer)

This book I bought because of the intriguing title and because it was reduced in price. (If I didn't like it, not much harm would be done, was my idea back then.)

It has been sitting on my shelf for quite some time. After the initial interest there were so much more books that were interesting too and kept creeping in front of this one.

But now I've finally read it and, I must say that I like it a lot. For me it gives a good idea about how life was in the late 19the century in China. Family traditions, rules, a touch of politics, machinations, hope, love, cheating, addictions, it is all in here. As I name them, it indeed is a lot for not such a big book.

I like the main character, loved to follow him on his route through life. Too bad the book ends where it does: I would have loved to read more about him. ( )
