the corpse walker
It isn't entirely what I had expected it to be-- I knew it revolved around interviews but I hadn't exactly expected it to just be one interview after another after another, and that made it a little hard to keep track of (not only the stories but also the people and topics). Regardless, it was really interesting. I think it goes without saying by this point that I'm always extremely interested in learning about Asian cultures, but I've never read much about more modern-day China, so this was a really eye-opening read.
It's very raw. The topics and people throughout the book aren't only intriguing, but some of them are heartbreaking and almost unbelievable. I've learned a lot about a part of China I really hadn't known before.
