This is the touching and inspiring story of a Chinese boy growing up during and following the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Zhang reads with a Chinese accent that makes listeners think the author himself is reading this book. The narration would not be believable if read by a Midwesterner. Zhang is clear, even paced and successfully communicates the emotion of the text. The book is a great view of communism from the perspective of an ordinary family.
