Eternal Happiness

This book was a slow read, at the beginning but in general a very rewarding one. By the end, I found myself reaching for it more and more often

I have heard the author (Rob Schmitz) a few times on Marketplace, and appreciate his tone. He realizes that, as a journalist, he impacts the situation he is in — but tries mainly to tell the story of those he interacts with. Thus, this book has very little about him and being an expat in China, and everything about a few people who live there, and their interwoven stories.

Having experienced that part of China (though Shanghai has changed by 1000% since I was last there), these were not new stories to me. But they were well-told, and engaging, and extraordinarily well-written.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review, but the opinions are all my own.
