    PDF/EPUB A Single Swallow PDF ✓ A Single PDF or ☆ gamegeek denter.de single book, swallow ebok, A Single pdf, A Single Swallow EpubThis novel has a great concept driving how the story unfolds 3 comrades who survived the end of WW2 in China and heard the Japanese emperor's surrender on the radio meet back in their former village from beyond the grave after the final man dies Primarily in the voices of the three friends the life story of a young Chinese woman is told by the three men who loved her TW for some seriously brutal sexual assault scenes and rampant misogyny even from her allies and there's one weird chapter in the middle told from the POVs of two pet dogs Weird and not my favorite choice on behalf of the author but not bad enough to ruin the book for me In general I think it was an interesting and significant choice to use all these other male narrators to tell the life story of a strong determined woman who survived so much in her life Poignant that the reader never gets to hear Ah Yan's story in her own voiceI gather this author is a bestselling n
