The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck

The Good EarthThe Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck is the story of the family of Wang Lung, a Chinese man living in the time before World War II. There is very little dialogue; the story is told through the thoughts of Wang Lung instead of conversations with other characters. However, the descriptions never felt boring, as can be the case with books with little dialogue. I really enjoyed the glimpse into everyday life in China at that time, but parts concerning the treatment of women were sometimes difficult to read.
