trevelyan on March 1, 2018@murrayjames,Really fond of 活着 myself. If you want something totally different, btw, you should check out The Three Body Problem (三体) and give it a try. It's a lot more like mid-century US pulp science fiction and is not that challenging. Also refreshing since it a very different kind of read than we normally get from Chinese writers.
