    PDF/EPUB Yan Lianke  四书 Sìshū eBook â  四书 book, sìshū pdf, 四书 Sìshū EpubThis is truly a masterpiece I bet even as late as halfway that Yan could not sustain this incredible satire Satire should be short I was wrong Instead of short this satire is simple and repetitive in very effective ways and it moves with circumstances which change slowly often seasonal just in time to keep the reader from being frustrated by this slow measured novel preserving its form as it becomes darker and darker In fact measurements are important to this novel measurements always left in Chinese which works because they are essentially meaningless Numbers are given great meaning by the characters in the novel but they actually have little intrinsic meaning This is one of Yan’s brilliant ways to characterize ideasThis is a satire on

    PDF/EPUB Yan Lianke  四书 Sìshū eBook â  四书 book, sìshū pdf, 四书 Sìshū EpubA very cleverly written book covering 1958 1962 in China the reeducation camps the shambolic uest to make steel making a village industry and the resulting faminesThe inmates have no names and are known by their occupations author theologian doctor musician The camp commandant is young uneducated and ignorant and is known as the Child There are ludicrous agreements for crop targets a joint belief that steel can be made from sand and a motivational scheme based on winning paper flowers and stars The book is one long satire on what the government did to the country My only issue was it was a bit repetitive but maybe that was part of the structure of the book to reveal how repetitive life was for those being reeducate

    PDF/EPUB Yan Lianke  四书 Sìshū eBook â  四书 book, sìshū pdf, 四书 Sìshū EpubThe Four Books is set in a Chinese re education camp during the Great Leap Forward The inclusion of both fable and satire made it difficult to determine what was realistic and what was surreal The pacing seemed off as well The first 70% of the book really drags while the final 25% flies by but covers some repulsive topics In the end this book left me with far uestions than answers I read an interview with the author that just confused me further The only takeaways I got from this book really resulted in goggling the Great Leap Forward to learn
