The patriot : a novel
It ends on a note of uncertainty and hope, with the Chinese army being nearly destroyed and the main character, a Chinese man, leaving his family safely behind in Nagasaki to continue fighting the Japanese occupying his country. Pearl S. Buck ends many of her books on a tragic note, and because the dark cloud of the bombing of Nagasaki hangs over the story, in a way she unwittingly does so with this one as well.

Jan 15, Spencer rated it it was amazing Shelves: pearl-s-buck.

I found the book very interesting and love learning the traditions the countries used Pearl S Buck always seems to be able to draw me into her books and keep me stuck in one from the time I open it until I flip the last page closed. I found the book very interesting and love learning the traditions the countries used to have and maybe still do I am not sure. I believe she is referring to the Wang family that was in The Good Earth. I am not for sure about it but it cannot just be a coincidence that Pearl just slid the name in there.
Anyways I thought it was a nice little Easter Egg that I noticed. Jul 21, Lisa rated it really liked it. I picked this book up at the library, not knowing anything about it, but found it to be so very interesting! The author's name seemed familiar, but I can't honestly say why. I really like historical fiction, so this was great, but I really don't know much about this time and setting, so I want to learn more now! The book starts in Shanghai in and covers the next 12 years of the life of Wu I-wan.

Once again I have been moved by the conflict between one's spouse and children and one's parents and culture. I cannot determine what I would do in the Patriot's position; I am only grateful not to have to decide as yet. My native land is the United States of America, and while I believe it is the best place for me, I'm not sure if I would follow the current regime in all things.

At what point does the government diverge from the nation? May 27, Cindy rated it really liked it. I'm never disappointed in a book written by Pearl S. I'm so glad I picked it up at the used book sale! This is the story of a young Chinese man who is sent to Japan after his father learns that he is a revolutionist. He comes to love a Japanese woman, marries her and has two sons. He is conflicted but realizes he must return to China to fight against the Japanese who have invaded his country. Sep 03, Christine Woods rated it really liked it.
If you are a student of history you will find much of interest in this book. Set in China in the late 's, it follows the life of a young Chinese man as a student with a revolutionary bent, through his "exile" in Japan. Probably more like a 3. At the center is a story of love for country, family, and the problems that arise when these are in conflict. It's heavy handed and at times makes a caricature of nearly everyone.
Oct 08, Jessie added it. I love Pearl Buck, so I'm sure I'll enjoy this one. Our Library has so many "oldies but goodies"! Interesting, not the story so much as the themes Review to follow. Dec 01, John rated it it was amazing Shelves: own , 5-star , historical-novel.
