Has anyone else read anything by Pearl Buck? I picked up "Portrait of a Marriage" in an antique shop once. Since then I've read "The Good Earth". I plan on buying it soon, and I'm hoping to read some of her other stuff.

The way she writes, I never expected to like the books, but they're great. I reread them all the time, and they never get old.


When my daughter was a young teen I chose "The Good Earth" as one of our reading projects. Every day we read together, and discussed what we read. The book has a slow start, but even my daughter came to appreciate this book. Actually, it was eye opener for her. (I hope she's reading to her children tonight)
