I slumbered onto one of the loungers & turned to the page where I’d stopped...
Eldest sister Eling, popularly known as "the one who loved money”; Second sister Chingling married Chinese leader Sun Yat-sen & was known as "the one who loved China"; Chiang was "the one who loved power".
They each played a major role in influencing their husbands, which, along with their own positions of power, ultimately changed the course of Chinese history. Although the novel's somewhat interesting, there're lots of dates & names, like I’m studying history back in school.
I struggled to finish the book as quick as I could as I’m eager to lay my hands on my next – The Lost Symbol. Dan Brown is one of my fave authors & I’ve read all his books. I’ve waited for the paper back for a year now & finally got it. Hardcover books are really not meant for a languid person like me, I just don’t have the strength to hold it for long. Then again, I wonder where I get all the energy to carry my shopping bags.
I’m really excited & can’t wait to start my new book. Has anyone of you read The Lost Symbol? Share with us some of the plots but wait, don’t divulge too much tho.
