I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
Great book. Really insightful, just how different one provincial culture in China is different from another. Also shows that no matter how terrible we may find it here in the US, there are still places where arranged marriages, child abuse, and plural marriage are not so distant memories.
