I liked it. It had a different feel to it than the usual novel of that era. The writing is spare but good - that appealed to me. It gave me a sense of the place, people (Brits in Hong Kong) and attitudes both pre-War and post. Different but worth reading.


I just read about the Piano Teacher in todays NY Times Book Review. I've added it to be reserves list at the library. Thanks for posting about it.


I left you a award on my blog.
Check it out.


I really enjoyed this book. The two love stories intertwine primarily as a way to tell the first love story. The writing is beautiful and I thought that most of the characters were very well written. I recommend it, particularly to those who enjoy historical fiction.
