    Epub stockpm.pro ä Little Gods Kindle É little book, gods download, Little Gods eBookThank you to NetGalley and HarperCollins Publishers for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest reviewI have a lot of complicated feelings about this one which always seems to be the case with three star books Little Gods features three main characters who are all connected to a fourth character Su Lan; their perspectives combine to create a portrait of her Zhu Wen lived in the same building as Su Lan in Shanghai and helped her raise her infant daughter Yongzong went to school with Su Lan and later married her leaving her on the day of their daughter’s birth And Liya is Su Lan’s only child who spent most of her life in America but returns to China with her mother’s ashesThe characters were easily what I liked best about this book; they were complex and realistic and sympathetic and flawed I appreciated the deep dive into the three main characters’ lives Over the course of this short book I came to understand their histories m

    Epub stockpm.pro ä Little Gods Kindle É little book, gods download, Little Gods eBookMeng Jin’s debut novel Little Gods is such a gorgeously constructed story It’s built on a sturdy frame decorated beautifully but it will have some readers scratching their heads saying but what is it? What does it mean? And that is to say that it is mysterious clever thought provoking and may leave you with several uestionsSu Lan is a brilliant physicist with an eye always to the future Liya is gifted with language and searches for answers about her mother’s past That’s all you need to know about this novel It is the marriage of science and language the meeting of past and future And though this novel featured less hard science than I’d expected up until the final moments it never ceased to be intelligent Eually the lush language and the perfectly joined story elements came together into a story was that altogether very
