of ex pats and rich locals vying for status but don t expect a plot that will pull you towards a resolutionf importance 45 I ve never thought The Bricklayer of a title for a book to be either a good namer a bad name but after reading this brilliant historical fiction book I have to say this is a dumb title for this particular book Looking at the cover you think it s a white female that is a piano teacher probably having an affair and it is all about her BUT NO I thought Claire was the most boring. E an abrupt turn after the Japanese ccupation and though their reactions are varied denial resistance submission the toll it takes n all is soon laid bare Enter Claire Pendleton from London Months after her husband is transferred to Hong Kong in 1951 she accepts a position as a piano teacher to the daughter f a wealthy couple the Chens Claire begins to see the appeal f the sweltering city and is soon taken in by the Chen's. ,

and weaves back and forth between the 40 s and 50 s She has clearly demonstrated the attitudes f class among the British Americans and the native people On ne hand there are the people who are leading their frivolous existences similar to the Gatsby era and then there are those who humbly serve them Character development was The Jesuit often flat and awkward The time when the Japanese invaded andccupied Hong Kong was horrifying and detailed but much was left unresolved This chapter in history has been so much aptly addressed in With Bound Hands other literature While trying to accomplish this Yee has given the reader too little attempting to tell too many stories and thenmitting items which could have made her novel satisfyingThe actions Rim of the Pit of her main characters were not clearly defined nor always resolved satisfactorily The conclusionf the book was abrupt leaving the main character the piano teacher suspended in a strange and uncharacteristic situation the salespeople at Borders did me wrong in their defense i had but 10 minutes You Can Beat the Odds on my parking meter and made a hasty decision to buy this book and what a book what a dumb book boring story i kept waiting for the story to get moving and it never did this is a slow story about a bunchf english ex pats living in hong kong and going to parties having affairs stealing things Part 2 gets nly mildly interesting when the japanese invadeboring boring boring characters i didn t really care.
