The Good Earth (Enriched Classics) by Pearl S. Buck
The Good Earth (Enriched Classics)

BLeigh, January 23, 2011

This year, I read, and loved, the classic, The Good Earth. It's soft flow and gentle images intertwined to create a feeling of the character that narrates it. I felt so close to him, even while the other characters of the novel seemed to pass him by. The story kept my interest as it spoke of different times, places, situations, material standings. The reader could always feel the main character's continued, loyal attachment to his land, the good earth.
