Summary Red Poppies A Novel of Tibet

Read & Download Red Poppies A Novel of Tibet Þ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook CutoE tra rivalità familiari lotte di potere amori e sconfitte la storia della dinastia diventa allo stesso tempo la storia del paese e del tramonto di un mondo Un paese fiabesco e lontano da ogni stereotipo in cui bellezza e violenza si uniscono in un nodo inestricabile crudele e affascinant. My copy it is 2002 edition of the english translation has 433 pages not 448It s a really fun book At first I was enjoying it mildly At a certain point the characters and story really captured me Takes place in Tibet in the decades leading up to the communists taking over China It tells a very interesting story of what life was like in Tibet what the customs were and what people were like From the point of view of a member of a ruling family The men of the ruling family get to sleep with all kinds of women which is kind of obnoxious It tells some interesting history I m glad it pretty much stopped short of Red China period because stories about Red China tend to be so depressingI really don t think I started this book on January 2nd Oh well what can I do I need to start keeping better track of when I start and finish books At least I know I finished this one on January 19th

Read & Download Red Poppies A Novel of Tibet Þ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Uesto romanzo forse il primo esempio di realismo magico tibetano è per il suo paese uello che i romanzi di Gabriel García Máruez sono stati per la ColombiaThe Los Angeles TimesNel Tibet dei primi decenni del Novecento dove il potere è detenuto dai pochi signori feudali che controllano la c. Red Poppies by Alai is an interesting piece not least because it is one of the few literary works that has passed the censors of China to make it s way from Tibet to the western world Because of this I have suspicions that the writer who is Chinese though has Tibetan heritage portrayed the Tibetan people within the novel in a way the censors would approve ofThe story takes place in twentieth century Tibet and the narrator is the second and youngest son of a Tibetan warlord the Maichi family He tells us with nearly the first sentence of the books certainly the first paragraph I don t recall the book is somewhere in the house but I am lazy that he is an idiot Everyone thinks so His older brother the heir his mother his nanny who is also his first lover his father everyoneHowever it became apparent to me pretty early on that the narrator is not an idiot at all he s actually very perceptive People only think he s an idiot because he sometimes says things that are socially and politically inept The plot follows The Idiot s moves and sexual exploits his good and bad fortune as his father falls ill The book is filled with hinted magic or magical realism Think One Thousand Years of Solitude by Garcia Maruez so the magic could be coincidence but could also be magicThough the book is interesting I also feel like it dragged on a bit Certain things were brought up throughout the book that I thought would have a profound impact only to be cast by the wayside later An interesting read if you re interested in what kind of literature makes it past the Chinese censors but not my favorite read of the year that s for sure despite the book being deep and nuancedIf you re interested in this book check out your local bookstore please please please before looking on
