Book # 5 "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress" by Dai Sijie

I'm writing this months after I read the book and I don't remember all the details. I do know I found this really interesting. I had to keep reminding myself it takes place in the 70s because the living conditions the main characters live in seems to primitive by our standards.

I did enjoy the book and I always love books about the love of books. The theme of using the banned books to survive the conditions the characters are forced to live in rang very true to me.

I think when my quest is over this will be one of the books I'll revisit to remember the small details I can't seem to remember now.
