Kim in Appalachia Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 I saw it was short listed for the Booker award, and it caught my interest. I read a lot of different types of books, and I do enjoy historical fiction. I was a bit put of by one review that said it had a lot of brutality which distracted from the story. Since I read The Song of Ice and Fire last year, I know I can handle brutality, but still the review made me nervous. Anyone read it? What did you think? I'm looking for someone to convince me this book is worth buying.;) Our library didn't have it, so it will be a purchase. It does look good. I've been waffling about what to read next. I have Perdido Street Station sitting on my shelf, and I've also been wanting to read Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World (which I would have to buy too). But I saw The Garden of Evening Mist mentioned this morning and it caught my eye. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
