    (FREE) [兄弟 Xiōng Dì] by Yu Hua This book is amazing It goes from being hilarious to depressing to jaw dropping and back it made me feel like I'm on a roller coaster This book reads like it has 300 pages not once did I think something was redundant or drawn out In fact I felt it stopped almost too suddenThe characters are wonderfully drawn out and jump off the page This despite the fact that the book often reads like a fableMost interesting

兄弟 Xiōng Dì Summary ¿ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Yu Hua â 6 Free read Read & download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB â Yu Hua Ing roller coaster of life in a newly capitalist world As comically mismatched teenagers Baldy Li a sex obsessed ne’er do well and Song Gang his bookish sensitive stepbrother vow that they will always be brothers a bond they will struggle to maintain over the years as they weather the ups and downs of rivalry in love and making and losing millions in the new China Their tribulations play out across a richly populated backdrop that is every bit as vibrant the rapidly changing village of Liu Town full of such live. I wanted to like this book both because I admire several of Yu Hua s previous novels and because a book this large reuires a considerable investment in time While Brothers contains some sections of great humor and others of heart wrenching tragedy much of it is like a bande dessin e without pictures flat cartoon like characters of extreme unbelievable behavior Moreover I found the obsession with virginity hymen reconstruction surgery and breast and penis enhancement well a bit tiresome and juvenile Even though I suspect there has been some obsession with these topics in China in recent decades they are not uite my cup of tea or at least not beyond maybe thirty or forty pages Perhaps this novel about two half brothers and their uite separate fates would have been better at 300 rather than 600 pages Or perhaps I need to talk to one of the translators a brilliant scholar with whom I shared a few dinners a few years back Maybe he can explain to me exactly what I missed

Summary 兄弟 Xiōng Dì

兄弟 Xiōng Dì Summary ¿ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Yu Hua â 6 Free read Read & download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB â Yu Hua Ly characters as the self important Poet Zhao the craven dentist Yanker Yu the virginal town beauty turned madam Lin Hong and the simpering vendor Popsicle WangWith sly and biting humor combined with an insightful and compassionate eye for the lives of ordinary people Yu Hua shows how the madness of the Cultural Revolution has transformed into the eually rabid madness of extreme materialism Both tragic and absurd by turns Brothers is a monumental spectacle and a fascinating vision of an extraordinary place and tim. This is a funny sad bawdy be patient it is terribly bawdy towards the end and compelling book It is the story of two brothers beginning before the Cultural Revolution and ending in the 21st century and it is the story of China emerging into a modern country with all the good and the bad that comes along with such change The story is set in a small town and is told in what seems to be a simple repetitive manner The characters are merely a way to move the story and they have no particular depth nor do they truly undergo any change but that is okay the main character here is China I am not a fan of most satirical comedy I find it tasteless and not funny but I truly laughed out loud at many places in the book s 641 pages Maybe because it is satirical but also sweet and the author loves China A long book by pages but it goes uickly and is not like the wonderful long novels that you read with slow steps and feel when you finish that you have left a life somewhere THis book just hops along I learned that it was a best seller in China

兄弟 Xiōng Dì Summary ¿ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Yu Hua â 6 Free read Read & download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB â Yu Hua A bestseller in China recently short listed for the Man Asian Literary Prize and a winner of France’s Prix Courrier International Brothers is an epic and wildly unhinged black comedy of modern Chinese society running amokHere is China as we’ve never seen it in a sweeping Rabelaisian panorama of forty years of rough and rumble Chinese history that has already scandalized millions of readers in the author’s homeland Yu Hua award winning author of To Live gives us a surreal tale of two brothers riding the dizzy. No real spoilers below I left all the surprise parts outBaldi Li never met his father who died on the day he was born drowned in a cesspit of the public toilets where he was peeping at the women next door When his mother married Song Fangping Song Gang who was eight one year older than Baldy Li became his brotherWhen the Cultural revolution started Baldy Li s mother was in hospital in Shanghai and life was very hard as Song Fangping was a school teacher and therefore a class enemy He was humiliated and beaten and then imprisoned This left Song Gang and Baldi Li to fend for themselves Picked on by others it was a hard life and the brothers had to look out for each otherIn the book we follow their lives from childhood to old age in the present day written 2006 We are introduced to the main characters of Liu Town where they live and follow the path of China from before the Cultural Revolution through those times to the modern day capitalist focused China we know nowThe book is well written and well translated and ably mimics the writing style of traditional Chinese novels but with a modern twist Interestingly the tone changes freuently from its very funny parts to the desperately sad parts where families and dreams are crushed Others have uestioned the simplicity of the narrative whether this was purposeful My view from reading it was it was certainly purposeful to mimic the small town language of the narratorI enjoyed the use of uotations from Mao s Red Book from The Art of War and from others and no doubt many from Chinese works I missed Narrated by an unknown towns person we are offered glimpses of the future with the story then filling in the details of how they got there Usually this involves some steps backward before moving forwardsOther details about the writing it is loaded with swearing and uite crude at times with plenty of focus on sex so if that sort of thing is off putting for you don t bother starting the 600 pages There is certainly an element of the absurd but what can I say other than it workedAs I mentioned above it has its moments some of them very sad distressing and aggravating such as the weak thinking of the Red Guards beating people to death in such cowardly ways But the book is predominantly clever and funny albeit fairly basic humourVery good 5 stars
