Empress Orchid
by Anchee Min
Buy book: $14.87

“Empress Orchid" is the story of a fascinating, strong-willed woman who for generations has been vilified as a grand seductress and murderer. Min draws a vivid portrait of a flawed yet utterly compelling woman and, through her life, of the world of the Chinese court and the sexual and political lives of the royal concubines.

Enjoying this book

I am really enjoying this book. I tend to like books written in the first person since it makes the book more personal. I feel like the author is talking directly to me. I also like fiction where I can read a good story but also learn something interesting. The author is doing a great job on both those points. I will be looking for this book in the library.

I reserved this book after reading the first paragraph of the email. Then I devoured it in two days. I love novelizations Asian histroy (current or ancient) and this book was no exception. Abrupt on the ending but a good read.
