I've been meaning to read this for ages, so I'm with you!


I've got this - one of my charity shop buys, bought out of curiosity, but still unread. I've picked it up and made a start several times and failed to make any headway whatsoever... maybe this will spur me on!


I'm in. Both my libraries have multiple copies. I have, of course, heard of the book before, but was never inclined to read it. So this will be an adventure. I look forward to it.


Looking forward to reading this again! Read it as a young teenager!

This has been on my "meaning to get around to it" list for ages as well. Looking forward to it!

I will gladly re-read this book, having loved it the first time around. (Will read it as soon as I locate it in my bookshelves, that is.) I will also read "Pearl of China", by Anchee Min, a novel based on the life of PSB which, says, "brings new color to the remarkable life of Pearl S. Buck." Since I know exactly where that book is, maybe I should read it first for background.


Looking forward to this and my copy is 'on order'. Earlier enthusiasm to read FLW, failed miserably I'm afraid, have decided not to join up with you all, but see you all at the end of next month if not before, Happy Easter to everyone on Cornflower


Interesting choice, I've fancied reading this for a while after seeing some positive reviews online.
