    Buku yang perlu kau baca dalam hidupmu! Memang buku ini bukanlah buku yang akan membuatmu terkesima atau excited. Bahkan boleh dibilang kadang-kadang menbosankan. Namun, selain kita bisa belajar sejarah darinya, sosok Henry Pu-Yi mengajarkan banyak hal tentang kehidupan pada kita. Kau ...

    I found the book quite comforting in the long run than watching the movie. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of Chinese history, so that actually affected my rating. Still, it is fun to discover the life of the last emperor. I hope all societies will learn from Pu Yi's life. ...

    This is interesting - I read it for a class back in the 80's. ...
