    Memories of the Old Peking has to be one of the best memoirs I have ever read link to the English translated version of the book from the viewpoint of a little girl who lived with her upper middle class family in Peking now Beijing at the turn of the century it contains six moving elegantly written short stories about the innocent joy of childhood; the loss hardship and sadness of life I read this masterpiece as a child and the remarkable unforgettable illustrations really do help me to get lost in the bygone Old PekingFor a memoir about the author's own childhood the messages beyond the stories are surprisingly mature; plus there are uite a number of heartbreaking moments in the stories for example view spoilerthe abused Chinese opera singing girl the mad woman and her lost love the young man who might be forced into burglary for the sake of his younger brother the tragic backstory of the author's nursemaidand last but not least the sudden death of the author's father hide spoiler

    I read this out of a task set by my Mandarin teacher right after finishing Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and the Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown To be frank I disliked the slow pace of this book in comparison to the drama and intensity I familiarized myself with previous reading I was even kind of dreading it I trod on regardless And here I am Touched to the core lying with a face streaked with tears I wasn't expecting to identify with the author's childhood as it is apparent that we are the products of different eras well I'm 16 Yet Lin's writing one of such simplicity is so powerful She writes like a seagull flying across the sea a sea so blue the young Lin in the book wouldn't be able to distinguish from the eually blue sky gracefully sliding over the surface of the glittering water She writes with such elegance and innocence and I who knew so little about appreciating was resenting how she buried the clues to the ending so carelessly I was constantly going oh my goodness you're so predictable and every time I was surprised by how each chapter is drawn to a close to different extents Old is gold Just as they always say Love it Reminds me that my faith in my culture can always be restored through books like this Cheers
