Boxers

When I read American Born Chinese, Andi recommended Boxers and SaintsI've yet to pick up Saints but I read Boxers and really enjoyed it.  It is the story of the Boxer Rebellion (strangely, something I learned a little about this semester in my archives class) from the point of view of one of the rebel leaders. You certainly empathize with Bao.  I loved the anime-nod that the rebels become the incarnation of gods when they battle.  So so sad as well.  a 6.

  1. And when you read Saints you'll see how they compliment each other and really bring a new meaning to this set. So glad you picked this one up and enjoyed it!
