Bury What We Cannot Take Reviews

  • Barbra

    I enjoyed this book and read it very quickly. One impulsive action resulted in a cascade of terrible events. So hard to imagine living in a society within which such a decision is even a thinkable one to make. All involved paid for that decision. It was interesting to read how each person responded.

  • Ethel Rohan

    This novel's title, cover and prose are a class act. It's a gripping, heartfelt story set against the backdrop of Maoist China. The horrors of that communist regime are efficiently and effectively rendered and left me hurting at our capacity for cruelty and inhumanity. The wealth of details are vivid and visceral and brought both place and people alive. I wanted more in terms of character motivation and the novel's close, but am so glad to have read this fine work.

    Young Ah Liam yearned for the day he could join China’s Youth League, against his families better judgement. They didn’t understand, he thought. It was the first step toward full party membership. That which he coveted more than anything. He only hopes that the Party didn’t learn of his grandmother’s crimes, or of his family’s former wealth. “Communism is a hammer that we use to crush the enemy!” That’s what they taught in new China schools.

    The family would soon get word that their father, who

    Lyrical and melodic, the subliminal messages of strength, belief, abandon and resourcefulness are still revealing themselves to me. I am looking forward to enjoying the growth of the author over the years and seeing where her visions take her.

    In so many ways it was if she was telling the stories of her family and her ancestors. Well done!

    3.5 stars, rounding up for storytelling

    3.75 I really enjoyed this, I would have been 4-4.5 stars but I felt like the ending was abrupt. But overall it was captivating. I felt anger and sadness, I was disgusted at times. If you enjoy family sagas I think you’d enjoy this.

    Bury What We Cannot Take is a captivating novel about one family's attempt to flee from Communist China in 1957. Having been granted only 3 travel visas to Hong Kong for 4 family members, Seok Koon is forced to leave one of her children behind in order to legally exit the country, and Kirsten Chen explores the ramifications of this harrowing decision.

    Bury What We Cannot Take is actually everything I had hoped Girls Burn Brighter was going to be. Both novels follow two parties which have been sep
