China Mountain Zhang product reviews

In the world of Zhang, the new charioteers are human-powered kites, racing above New York in a brief grab at glory. The new ultimate thrill for wealthy urbanites is to flirt with interactive death in illegal speakeasies. The opulence of Beijing has brought a new cultural imperialism. And a new generation lives in fear and hope. It is a new world in which Zhang is still finding his way...

Simple really. It bored me.

The characters had depth, but were low-energy... meaning they didn't really grab me, had no real focus and all seemed to be a little vague about their place in the plot.

I struggled to make it through the first 3 chapters, cruised through the next couple, and basically skimmed the rest of the book, I found it that watery.

Overall, not impressed, can't say much good, so won't say any more.
