    Wu Zeitian never shined so bright

    5/5 Christina Kook - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Moon in the Palace (The Empress of Bright Moon Duology) (Kindle Edition) I loved this book. I have been loving a few books lately but this one is epic. I first became interested in Empress Wu when I saw a poster for The Empress of China series starring Fan Bingbing. I began to love all things Tang through the works of Jeannie Lin. When I watched the series with subtitles I became completely enamored with Wu Zeitian. When I found out there was a book coming out about her I dropped everything to get my hands on it.This book was everything I expected. It lyrically portrays all of the violence and beauty of one of China's most cosmopolitan eras. I really enjoyed the inclusion of the cut throat harem politics and plots. While this is a fictional account, I am sure many similar events did happen. Overall I can't say enough good things about this book. I can't wait until the sequel appears on my doorstep in the next couple of weeks. I truly savored every inch of this book and can't wait to savor more!

    Look Out, George RR Martin...

    What if your survival and the survival of your family depended on the forbearance of a monster?This question is at the heart of Randel's masterful MOON IN THE PALACE, which is the first half of her 2-volume tale of Empress Wu. Naive young Mei arrives at the palace determined to rise in the ranks--not out of ambition (at least, not initially!) but out of a pure-hearted desire to help her destitute mother. At first, the machinations of the various camps of courtesans, advisors, and would-be heirs are far more intricate than young Mei is prepared for. But she is a quick study, and what follows is a series of ever-shifting alliances and betrayals, plots and counterplots, that would put the gang at King's Landing to shame.Along the way, Wandel takes us backstage at the Imperial Court, where we get a glimpse of the inner workings of the Emperor's vast wardrobe, the eerie silkworm nursery, the epic polo matches, and other fascinating locations behind the palace... 5/5 H.

    A gorgeous Tang Dynasty-era Cinderella story!

    I adore “Cinderella stories”.Nonfiction or fiction, it doesn’t matter. As long as the story features a strong, intelligent woman who rises from unlikely circumstances and has to fight her way up, I’m all in. Especially if she ends up saving herself and the guy too.That’s why I’m a huge fan of The Moon in the Palace by Weina Dai Randel.It’s about the rise of the young Empress Wu – before she became the Empress – and truly reads like a Tang Dynasty era Cinderella story, with everything you’d expect. A smart, powerful young woman who has struggled with extreme poverty and loss in her childhood. Conniving foes and lots of intrigue. A dashing prince that she helps save. A gorgeous palace setting.Of course, we all know going into this story that the young Mei Wu will indeed ascend to the throne. Yet that reality doesn’t detract in any way from the pleasure of reading this novel... 5/5 Jocelyn E. - See all my reviews This review is from: The Moon in the Palace (The Empress of Bright Moon Duology) (Paperback) I adore “Cinderella stories”.Nonfiction or fiction, it doesn’t matter.

    Book 2 About the fascinating life of Epress Wu

    It is important that I review these two books together as the full story of Empress Wu cannot be told without them being read one after the other.There is no other way to describe these two books, but to say they are sensational. Truly, I cannot stop raving about them.In Book 1, The Moon in the Palace, we are introduced to a young, intelligent young woman named Mei from humble beginnings who is swept into the emperor's court as a concubine. There she must weave her way through a a maze of treachery by other concubines who are equally struggling to claw their way to the top.There is danger, betrayal, enduring love, and plenty of intrigue and unusual circumstances around every corner, on every page. Book 1 hooked me with a powerful grip at the start and kept me engrossed until the fabulous ending. The best part is that I was thrilled that the story continued in Book 2, The Empress of Bright Moon.

    "Beautifully written, impeccably researched and well-constructed"

    In her first book about Empress Wu of Tang Dynasty China, THE MOON IN THE PALACE, Weina Dai Randel made her mark as a bright new voice of the historical fiction scene. In the follow-up volume, THE EMPRESS OF BRIGHT MOON, Randel paints an even more vivid picture of Mei, as she was then known, and her struggles to rise to power.We open on the incipient death of Emperor Taizong, father of Mei’s beloved, Prince Pheasant, and the man whom she serves as a concubine. Just as fate seems to favor Mei --- Pheasant is heir to the throne and promises to keep her by his side when he becomes emperor --- everything she’s worked so hard for is viciously ripped from her.Randel brings to life court intrigue in intricate detail that shows the years of meticulous research she put into this duet. As Mei claws her way back to the man she loves and the life that was stolen from her, twists and turns wait around the corner of every palace corridor.

    Surveillance of the self

    If you're looking for detective stories, look elsewhere. Auster isn't interested in the classic noirish private eye tale as anything but a way into territory vastly more compelling. Though his three novellas ostensibly revolve around men hired or driven into the pursuit of others, they end up being more about the psychology of the pursuer than the pursued. Surveillance of the self and the collapse of what we assume is our own identity is the abiding theme here, and Auster gives it three fascinating spins with simple plots which quickly spiral to literary altitudes. But don't expect simple resolutions. There are no straightforward answers here. If these were simple issues, they wouldn't justify the exploration Auster gives them. I had the pleasure of reading this immediately prior to Auster's "The Art of Hunger" (1997), a collection of essays and interviews which reveals, among other things, how "The New York Trilogy" blends aspects of his autobiography, literary theories and... 4/5 Steven Reynolds (Sydney, Australia) - See all my reviews This review is from: The New York Trilogy: City of Glass; Ghosts; The Locked Room (Contemporary American Fiction Series) (Paperback) If you're looking for detective stories, look elsewhere.

    A highly original and brilliant post-modern thriller

    Paul Auster's "New York Trilogy" consists of three seemingly unconnected novellas which though complete in themselves should be read as integral parts of a total literary experience. Unlike a conventional mystery thriller which focuses on the "who done what to whom" aspect of the storyline, Auster turns the table on the reader by taking him on a journey of self discovery past a hall of mirrors which reflect and expose by stages the psyche of the pursuer, not the pursued. The effect is so spooky you want to scream in your head as you encounter the next slice of reality about yourself. Readers familiar with the music of rock star David Bowie will find the reading experience similar to that of listening to his 1977 album "Low", a dark and creepy introspective piece of work. All three vignettes deal with questions of identity, reality and illusion, the meaning of words and language and explores the fine line between commitment and obsession. Both... 5/5 Simone Oltolina (Milan, Italy) - See all my reviews, October 25, 1999

    Good? Yes. Engaging? that's a different question...

    "The New York Trilogy", by celebrated author Paul Auster, is made up of 3, somewhat interlinked, long stories which were originately published separately at various times around 1985-86.There is no doubt that Paul Auster is a terrific writer so I won't even get into that aspect of the book.Let's get down to what's really important by trying to pinpoint the subject matter, i.e., what "the new york trilogy" is really about: in a sense, it's a mystery, in the true sense of the word, because even in the end many questions (most, I dare say) are left unanswered, many stones unturned and many cues are simply left hanging in the air.The NYT has been described as metaphysical detective fiction and the description might in fact prove apt: each of the 3 stories follows the investigations of one man which always turn into an obsession, making the man completely lose touch with the reality. The NYT is thus much about mental processes, we see each of the 3 main... 3/5 0, August 19, 2006

    A wonderful tale of grit and courage

    The Kingdom of the Sun and Moon by Lowell H. Press is a wonderful tale of grit and courage. Nesbit and Sommer are two little mice who live in Long Meadow. As anticipated, the eldest of the two, Sommer, is soon drafted into the Konig's guard. It is what the young mouse had always dreamt off. But, instead of the expected honour and patriotism the young mouse longed for as part of the Eagle Guards, he soon discovers things are not quit as they should be. With the threat of Emperor Wolfsmilch's imminent invasion of the Kingdom, Sommer quickly finds out just how hard it is to know who to trust.While Sommer is taken to the Palace to serve his Konig, Nesbit meanwhile is getting himself into a barrel of trouble. Banished from his beloved Long Meadow, he is now a fugitive and has become an enemy of the Konig.What I liked about the bookI liked so many things about the book.

    Exciting Story in a Magical Setting

    Lowell H. Press has written an inventive novel about a hierarchy of mice living in the gardens and secret interior spaces of a castle inspired by the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria.The colony’s king cares little for his subjects and is mostly interested in taking the food they save throughout the year for his own use during the winter months.Two brothers, Sommer and Nesbit, discover that all is not what it seems, including the king’s purported fear of a pending invasion of the colony by a massive army of woodland mice.Sommer, who is drafted by the king’s minions for a suicide mission on the colony’s behalf and Nesbit, who insults the king and flees into the dangerous forest, take different approaches to survival and justices. Sommer becomes a cadet commander, while Nesbit becomes known as either a worker of magic of an exceptionally lucky mouse.Set in a 1700s world, "The Kingdom of the Sun and Moon" is a... 5/5 M. R.
