Summary à Nanking Reuiem ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Xtraordinarily evocative precision Ha Jin re creates the terror the harrowing deprivations and the menace of unexpected violence that defined life in Nanjing during the occupation In Minnie Vautrin he has given us an indelible portrait of a woman whose convictions and bravery prove in the end to be no match for the maelstrom of history At once epic and intimate Nanjing Reuiem is historical fiction at its most resonant. I really wanted to like this book Jin s Waiting and The Crazed are two of my favorite books and I pre ordered this book on so I could get it as soon as it came outI was underwhelmed though While I did learn a lot about the occupation of Nanjing and especially the role of foreigners in the city during the time the book was strangely unengaging The book is all told at a strange emotional remove making the storytelling seem wooden and sometimes strained Jin also had the very bad habit of not telling things as they happen seuentially but mentioning past events only when they are part of the arc of the current event This is no simply non chronological storytelling but instead a fractured discontinuous narrative Instead of letting all of the events build together story arcs are pulled out and dealt with somewhat separately so that it is a series of vignettes and not one arcing narrativeSometimes I wondered if the storytelling was hampered by the fact that is is about actual people and actual events and it made Jin hesitant to write with his normal emotional resonance because he didn t want to climb into the heads of actual people The story seemed particularly ill served by the first person narration of his fictionalized character nothing than a cipher that Jin used to tell the stories of the other peopleThe tragic arc of Minnie Vautrin is so moving but it s real emotional power was lost a bit in this disjointed and detached novel

Summary à Nanking Reuiem ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF The award winning author of Waiting and War Trash returns to his homeland in a searing new novel that unfurls during one of the darkest moments of the twentieth century the Rape of Nanjing In 1937 with the Japanese poised to invade Nanjing Minnie Vautrin an American missionary and the dean of Jinling Women’s College decides to remain at the school convinced that her American citizenship will help her safeguard the w. I read this book because I thought a novel would be a better way for me to read about the Japanese occupation of Nanjing Reportage of atrocities can de sensitize us so that they have less impact and you care less about the victims Fiction with characterization where you see into the minds and hearts of the characters and see their lives in context should make you care Unfortunately as other reviewers have said this is closer to reportage than fiction One of the problems is that Ha Jin wanted a Chinese viewpoint character while choosing to focus primarily not on the viewpoint character but the American missionary Minnie Vautrin This is an odd choice The POV character Anling a Chinese Christian missionary vanishes behind Minnie Vautrin for long stretches of the narrative Yet she emerges from the shadows very poignantly when she experiences an inner conflict over her son This is a genuinely complex character dilemma in a book where so many of the characters are as papery thin as fallen leaves So by the end of the book I considered Anling a better choice of viewpoint than I had originally thoughtI also discovered a Japanese journalist s non fiction book about these events in Ha Jin s author note Ironically I am pursuing reportage I put it on hold I know that Japanese authorities have done their best to try to suppress any accounts of these atrocities so I want to find out how this Japanese author managed to write such a book It s The Nanjing Massacre A Japanese Journalist Confronts Japan s National Shameby Honda Katsuichi I feel that I ought to give this book an extra star because it s leading me to this other one that sounds so significant

Ha Jin provides an empathetic history in his telling of this event that is freuently overlooked in our tellings of the history of the mid 20th century The first half of the novel deals with themes of heroism and justice as the protagonists try to protect thousands of women and children from the invading Imperial Army Exploring the limits of our abilities to affect the world around us Ha Jin weaves a tale of futility highlighted by small victories and acts of heroism It is in these sparse moments Ha Jin argues that we must find hope and the strength to continueThemes of trauma and reconciliation explored in the second half of the novel are strong points grounding the work in something beyond a work of fiction It implores the reader to consider not just the text but to personally engage with and on some level understand historical tragedy In doing this one parallels the actions of the protagonists as we must reconcile this historical fact with the world we inhabitAs is the case with many works that consider themes of trauma this novel does contain freuent graphic depictions of violence and sexual assault If you find these subjects troubling I suggest skipping this novel
