Excellent book, as all Pearl Buck's books are excellent. I've read The Good Earth, Sons, and now A House Divided and they are all excellent. This one paints a particularly good picture of how early Communism starts, how it takes root in the hearts and minds of frustrated young people who have had it with their parents' traditional societies. My book club chose Pearl Buck's "The Good Earth" to read in April. I remembered reading it many years ago, so I looked forward to re-reading it with my friends.

Mrs. Buck, who still sees the world in a grain of rice, wrote this book, apparently, many years ago and left it incomplete and has now resumed it in the interests of world harmony although it is still pretty transient. Malcolm, who spent 25 years in the diplomatic service in China, returns to the . to leave it and to live as an ordinary citizen with his White Russian wife Nadya - surpassingly everything - and their two children.

While I like other novels Buck has written, this one is weak. Characters lack depth and the plot has little direction. Rural Americans are portrayed as stupid. The tone is preachy--off-putting.

I'm responding to the negative review. If you don't know the history of Pearl S. Buck, she is a preacher's daughter. Yep, she often preaches in her novels. What's interesting about Buck is that she was conflicted about religion, whether Christianity or other religions, conflicted about proselytizing Christianity, and conflicted about the West interfering in other cultures. In her autobio, she reveals her conflicts, and stated that she never felt at home anywhere, due to her upbringing as a Western preacher's daughter in old China. When she was in the U.S. she longed to be in China, and when in China, could not forget her American heritage. She never resolved her conflicts on that matter. This is why her books are what they are.

Also, if you didn't experience the 1950s, you cannot know what it was like to be living with the threat of the Bomb hovering over everything, the reality of the Berlin Wall, with young East Berliners risking their lives trying to escape over the wall into West Berlin. I'll never forget an article in Life magazine that showed a handsome young East Berliner lying dead on the ground at the foot of the wall. It seared itself into my memory, as did the threat of the Bomb. As far as the characters go, yes, they are archetypal, but the ignorant people then were no different than the ignorant people of today. Buck is calling out America's willful ignorance towards other cultures, and I salute her for that.
