The acclaimed novel of love and resistance during late 1930s China by Mo Yan, winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature.
Spanning three generations, this novel of family and myth is told through a series of flashbacks that depict events of staggering horror set against a landscape of gemlike beauty, as the Chinese battle both Japanese invaders and each other in the turbulent 1930s.
A legend in China, where it won major literary awards and inspired an Oscar-nominated film directed by Zhang Yimou, Red Sorghum is a book in which fable and history collide to produce fiction that is entirely new—and unforgettable.
The narrator was hands down the best I've heard on audible. he spoke with passion that really made you feel the story. the novel itself can be a little hard to follow, switching between various timelines, but the imagery and realism both in the novel and performed by the narrator makes this a must listen!

A poor copy. Entertaining, to be sure, but it is an initiation, and imitation is its flaw.
