    Some plots entice through sheer exoticism Here, the Chinese born, American raised playboy author takes us through an Odyssey of Chimerica, where he joyrides the turbulent opportunities known only to the savvy few who have mastered both English and Mandarin, and embraced any of the money making pathologies that abound in each land and in his case China His journey winds through staid professionalism as an attorney, then to the weighty uncertainties of a start up food delivery service All the while the reader is immersed in an hilarious, raunchy education in idioms, cultural norms, and how to acquire opium in a country not shy about executing drug traffickers Eventually, his numerous Faustian bargains send him into the clutches of a Chinese prison, with its own hierarchies and protocols The author s charm, a great adaptation in the various intrigues he participates willingly or otherwise, is also evident throughout the book This is a great glimpse into a rare creature.

    i managed thru the first half of this book in a day, but it took me a while to finish it, especially as i skim parts of the prison diary which felt like ages hmmm i guess the symbolic nuances of that part sorta work, eh having lived in beijing, and frequenting the sanlitun area often my office was in the sanlitun area , i found zz s story interesting because it captured the pace and dynamics of life in sanlitun different from my perspectivezz gave me an insight to life the way chinese people westernized chinese people see it it s something that i ve always felt was missing in my life during my 3.5 years stay there at least, reading the book has made me wanna go back there again and re live some of my life there, of course thru a different perspective

    Based on the cover I knew going into this book that I would be reading a memoir by a grade A douchebag ZZ never fails to talk about how many women he s slept with, his great education, his fantastic job, his money and so much But beyond the bragging, I got quite a bit of insight into the way modern China works If your yuan fen isn t on your side and you re not able to secure enough guan xi, you re probably in a bad place in China I also learned a variety of interesting curse words like wa cao ta me de I will not translate that and got a look inside China s kafkaesque prisons And hey, it seems like ZZ actually learns some valuable lessons by the end of it.

    An entertaining story following a Chinese born, raised in America, lawyer who ends up emigrating back to his country of origin to try his life there.Along the way he gives up his high paying lawyer gig with an international Wall Street firm to open a food delivery company in Beijing.Along the way he is arrested for smoking hash that happens to have opium in it, which from the Opium Wars, is not tolerated in China.His journey takes us to a Chinese prison and expands upon the details of life s true existence while talking with and living next to fellow countrymen who have a much different existence than the priviliaged Americanized individual in their presence.

    Picked up this book as an extra on my last trip to the library Didn t even realize it generally revolved around drugs which is a great indicator of how square I ve truly become in my old age Burned through the book over the course of the weekend, it is very readable While most of the action takes place in Beijing and the protagonist is a native son , I couldn t help but remember a lot of my exploits in Hong Kong and find similarities Ah, how I miss the good old days.

    Picked up this book in a bookstore in Suzhou and it was about the only book in the whole store that did appeal to me And it was all about China so high on my list of priority of books to be read So it kind of was waiting there for me

    This was a great book to read while actually in China It was a neat way to view the differences between the US and China through a Chinese perspective Also gave me greater insights into some policies and histories of China, specifically regarding the Opium War.

  8. says:

    I have no idea how true this book is but I sure enjoyed it I enjoyed his insights on his journey to Chinese manhood.

  9. says:

    Great for some adventure and risqu reading, as well as some cultural immersion, but the reading IS edgy and angled towards commercial literature.

  10. says:

    Not as good as I hoped it would be I expected a lot insight into modern Chinese urban and youth culture.
