    Intriguing characters, political and personal scandal, and the insights of one young Chinese student s heart make Lisa Zhang Wharton s Last Kiss in Tiananmen Square a novel you won t want to put down Set in the days leading into the student revolution and the government s violent response to it, the story follows a small group of college friends as they navigate romance and classes and become increasingly emerged in leading a movement that shook the world.Through her expanding network of well developed characters, Zhang Wharton brings the reader viscerally into the complexities of efforts toward a patriotic ideal, from intergenerational conflict to the past traumas and future hopes of a people s ongoing and valiant movements toward a democratic government and a free press With cultural detail and vivid imagery, Zhang Wharton s scenes and dialogue offer a window into a historical event as broad as students movements everywhere and as intimate as her heroine s blossoming sexuality and inner transformation to become part of a cause so much greater than herself The tensions of love, social justice and politics build together seamlessly toward a powerful ending we may know the facts, but here is the insider s story.

    I love the Chinese voice that Lisa Zhang Wharton writes with Her experience as a Chinese woman comes across in her story, and it feels almost auto biographical You feel the grimness of the conditions that the people of China lived under during the time of the Tiananmen Square Massacre Hope thrives under the conditions of hopelessness Baiyun struggles with her mother s morality, her own wishes and dreams, and with the burdens that were inherent to being a modern woman in China I highly recommend this to anyone who loves modern literature, and especially those who love anything about China, as I do.

    I enjoyed this book very much the dialogue was very interesting story line was easy to follow characters were blended with a little aura of excitement the flow of the story was very intense in some places the location being of course Tiananmen Square made this a very not only magical but a past that remains in ones minds two people and others in this story reminds us of the changes in time

    I understand that this was written by a lady for whom English is a second language The dialogue is terribly stilted and frequently wrong words were used I wanted to like the book because it sounded interesting, but I got about 40% done before I had to quit It is just too poorly written.

    We have all heard of the atrocities that occured at Tiananmen Square, this book provides an insight into some of the student motivations and expectations In using the political and civil unrest as a backdrop to a budding love affair Lisa Wharton manages to emphasise much about the emotiveness and repression of that time The main stage however is very much upon the emotional turmoil of a young woman running from her history into the arms of her future A recommended read.

  8. says:

    Extremely insightful drama of one of the most historical events in modern Chinese history, as seen through the eyes of a young college student A must read.

    haven t read yet..but the topic of Tiananmen Squ Massacre is tacky and full of cliches A superficial combo of political database and people s life during a most complicated and vibrant sea change of Chinese society is just so cheap..

    Obviously a translation, but a story that needs to be told However, it could use some editing I m used to reading broken English, so it made me smile and think of my kids in Thailand But it was sometimes hard to read and made me put it down to take a break.
