About the book
the Place of a Thousand Winds, a 16 year-old Chinese girl beats all-comers at the game of go. One of her opponents is a young Japanese officer of the occupying power. As their two stories unfold, the Japanese army moves inexorably through their huge land, leaving blood and destruction in its wake.

We universally disliked this book – it told an emotional story on such way that the reader simply did not emphathise with the characters. It was disjointed and a rather empty piece of literature.
