You know you've been in Jpaan too long when you dislike China for no apparent reason... :S

I bought it but I haven't started yet. Thanks--I'll bump it up on the list.

I'm a little more than halfway done. Very evocative book -- everyone seems to be cheering for her descriptions of China, but she also does a great job writing about Iraq. The backstory about Ellie's service as a medic in Iraq is a very large part of the book.

sperber--you're right, i totally overlooked that in my review. the iraq portions are really interesting, aren't they?
