My copy it is 2002 edition of the english translation has 433 pages not 448It s a really fun book At first I was enjoying it mildly At a certain point the characters and story really captured me Takes place in Tibet in the decades leading up to the communists taking over China It tells a very interesting story of what life was like in Tibet what the customs were and what people were like From the point of view of a member of a ruling family The men of the ruling family get to sleep with all kinds of women which is kind of obnoxious It tells some interesting history I m glad it pretty much stopped short of Red China period because stories about Red China tend to be so depressingI really don t think I started this book on January 2nd Oh well what can I do I need to start keeping better track of when I start and finish books At least I know I finished this one on January 19th
