This was an excellent book that showed the effects of the 'Cultural Revolution' from the perspective of individuals. The book does not cover the movements in an overall view but keeps with the viewpoint of the individual. I think it would help to have a basic understanding of Chinese history during this era, to fully appreciate what is going on in this more detailed and finer viewpoint. Liang learns of the contradictions in this "socialist" society. He does not demonize the Chinese people but shows how they struggled in creating a new society. There are many powerful images of his personal relationships. The main theme I picked up on was how misguided policies fostered a corrupt culture that was exploited on the ground level, often by people who thought that they were doing what was best for their country.

I loved this book. I had to read it for one of my college classes and wasn't too excited first, but it ended up being one of my favorite memoirs I've ever read. It's very well written and had no trouble keeping my attention throughout. I would definitely recommend this to read, as it will really open your eyes to the real life of someone growing up under Mao.

While I spent years to study European Nazisms and Communisism, I had never been exposed to the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Liang Heng's account left me speechless, in tears and amazed. Beautifully written - crude and thruthful.
