    PDF NEW [The Palace of Heavenly Pleasure] read The Palace of Heavenly Pleasure IMHO Williams was very good at Chinese characterization which makes sense seeing how long he has lived there plus the fact he has a Chinese wifeFor the history I had never even heard of the Boxer Revolution the portrayal of Chinese culture the seemingly accurate portrayal of life in the early 1900s all 4 stars I particularly liked how ther

Adam Williams ☆ 6 characters review Ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Adam Williams The Palace of Heavenly Pleasure free read ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Re an infamous brothel that overlooks an execution ground where the fury of the East will meet the ideals of the West and all will face thei. WHOA I mean before getting into this book you realize it s meant to be a very dramatic historical fiction account a romance of epic proportions But Williams took it farNO ONE is safe very Game of Thrones esue in its gore violence blood sex no details spared It can be hard to read at times in the way that you re cringing andor crying and want to throw the book across the room BUTYOUJUSTCAN TPUTITDOWNOverall besides those previous details I loved it It s an epic story that jumps from one catastrophe and character to the next in the exotic location of the imaginary Shishan town of northeast China It s a little slow going to start but once you get into it you ll probably finish the 600 odd pages in a day and it will disrupt your schedule and peace of mind completely The characters are BRILLIANT favorite part of the writing Each of the many with their own arc and journey throughout the story and the book jumps from one perspective to another without it seeming confusing except at the beginning I have to admit some things are a little cheesy and over the top in the plot and some characters are too evil for no reasonbut most of the characters are shown in an interesting light that reveals the flaws and moral failings of even the most good characters In that way there aren t any truly good or bad characters which makes the story realistic despite taking place in a fictional town and the occasional mumbo jumbo like who the hell is actually the blind priest Was he necessary except to add drama and suspenseAdam Williams has very intimate knowledge about China and Chinese people and it was really interesting to hear that his own family s history in China was part of his inspiration to write the novel I learned a lot about this crazy time in Chinese history terrifying being a foreigner in China myself while becoming completely immersed and emotionally attached to all the characters It s great how his story although focused on a group of foreigners seeks to describe what drove the peasants of northern china to develop such radical thinking and revolt in the way they didIf you re not sueamish would definitely recommend

Adam Williams ☆ 6 characters review Ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Adam Williams The Palace of Heavenly Pleasure free read ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB R destiny Adam Williams's first novel is a historical tour de force and a triumphant return to traditional storytelling on a truly grand sca. Picking up this book I had high expectations Adam Williams does not only have a background in business but his family also has a history that is deeply entwined with China since the 1880ths That he is on top married to one of my favorite Chinese literates did not lower my anticipation eitherIn my most optimistic expectations I hoped for a read in the ballpark of James Clavell s Taipan sagaI think Adam Williams had similar ambitions with this book he definitely aimed at creating an epicThe Palace of Heavenly Pleasure is not a terrible read else I would not have made it through the 640 pages The overall plot is not bad despite the rather anticlimactic end and the period of the Boxer Uprising makes for a fascinating backdrop for an adventure epic What I take issue with though is the stereotypical character design that borderlines to racism and the totally unnecessarily detailed display of sexual and physical violence The character s especially the Chinese ones could have definitely benefited from a bit generosity With the exception of a few Christian convertites the Chinese characters in the book are pretty uniformly nasty And some of the sex scenes in The Palace of Heavenly Pleasure read as if they are taken straight out of Maruis de Sade s Justine which not necessarily has to be a bad thing in itself it s just not terribly helpful to the story At the end stands a two star rating as the ambitious book in my opinion just as too many flaws to be anywhere near the classics of the genre
