Heads up: I love this book! When I first read the summary of the book I thought that it was such a cliché story but in the end I really enjoyed the story!
Recently, I was in a vast E-Mail conversation with someone because of boring money/tax stuff. This person was a bit incompetent and not really helpful but it was me who needed help from the person. After all, it is the job of the person to give this service of helping out.
Can you belive it? I review a different book than the Clifton Chronicles! Today I want to review a historical novel (sorry, I love this genre the most). I read this book in German but since there is an English version available, I will write my review in English.
In the end, what matters?
[Hold your horses! I don’t want offend anybody! I state my perceptions and experiences! I just know a few Chinese people personally, so my remarks are not representative!]
Here are 5 cultural differences that I witnessed being with a Chinese man for almost four years. Maybe I will write another version of this article focusing on differences in relationships.
1. Sense of Community
I noticed that many Chinese people are rather egoistic when it comes to the environment or empathy.
As I get older, I find it more and more difficult to not take things too seriously. There is more pressure and you are responsible not just for you, but also for other people. At some point, decisions seem so set in stone. If I am going to decide for option A, there is no turning back (or you can turn back with a great loss of time and effort).
(This review will be in German because I couldn’t find an English version of the book and I don’t know if there even is going to be an English version…)
Das ist der erste Krimi den ich seit einer langer Zeit gelesen habe. Wenn ich Krimis lese, dann Schwedenkrimis! Den letzten Schwedenkrimi den ich gelesen habe war die Millennium-Trilogie von Stieg Larsson (definitive Leseempfehlung!). Als Abwechslung zu meinen normalen historischen Romanen, musste ein Krimi herhalten!
