Li Kao is a gorgeous character. I love how he introduced himself.

I am trying to work out whether I am upset that the ending was so obvious. The book is much more than the mystery.

Agree with you re the language. I think it feels quite "authentic", like you're reading a translation of a real Chinese legend.

Unlike you, I liked the frequent returning to the village. It gave the story a feeling of circles within circles. I enjoy loops.

Am very pleased Benjamin loaned the book to me. But I am not sure whether I'd want to read the other books in the series. Hm.
