Read full description of the books:
After reading The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck I decided to read the second book in the trilogy, Sons. It's a romantic and adventurous novel that gives a better glimpse into Chinese culture and traditions.
After Wang Lung's death his sons reunite and plan their future with his estate. The youngest son, Wang the Tiger, returns from his long journey with an army from the south. As they all secretly plan in their minds what they will do with their money and land Wang the Tiger has no plan for lands or money, he will become a great lord of war. The story takes you through his perilous journey, which includes fighting a great enemy and the tragedy of love. With Buck¿s remarkable descriptions of the beautiful Chinese lands and people, she makes the story even better. What amazed me most about this book was how Pearl Buck brought many real life situations in to a story that seems so unreal.
She writes about love, suicide, and loneliness which are one of life's most difficult situations. All of the characters were unique in their own way. Wang the Tiger was a man of honour yet lived a life of shame toward his father, son, and himself.
I liked the book because of the way it expresses each of the character's feelings. Wang the Tiger is completely different than any of the other characters. In this book Pearl S. Buck demonstrates bthe power of women and the weakness of men in many ways. The war related scenes in the story makes the book seem more realistic and interesting.
I recommend this trilogy to all ages because it is a great way to learn about Chinese culture. I've developed a great respect and interest for the Chinese traditions. This book just helps us understand Chinese culture more. Pearl S. Buck once again creates a fabulous tale of love, tragedy, and war. Sons is a true page-turner and not only is it an amazing book, but it is a classic.
