Book Review:
The Old Man of the Moon by Shen Fu

Title: The Old Man of the Moon
Author: Shen Fu
Published: 1809 (as a part of Six Records of a Floating Life)
Language: English
Pages: 64
Rating: 2/5

This is the story of a man, the deep love he has for his wife and their marriage.

As this is such a short book, it's hard to really write a comprehensive review without giving it away.

Quite simply, this didn't strike a cord with me. I didn't feel compelled by much in it other than the writing, which was pretty good. I wasn't connected to any of the characters, and I found it rather boring. I get that it's sort of a quiet tale, but it just didn't do anything for me.

I suppose I would recommend it if you want to give this author a shot, just to see if you like the writing style.
