More like 425 starsWOW When I first started Dragon Springs Road I didn t feel too invested in the story and was thinking this would be a 3 star read HoweverThis story became so much around the 100 page mark and with every chapter proceeding Dragon Springs Road became so much interesting intriguing and just so much There is some magical realism in this book and magical realism is not something I typically gravitate towards However I really enjoyed the magical realism and how it tied to Asian culture I also enjoyed how the story came full circle and I feel like everything wrapped up so nicely Not conveniently though Really well done novel with a lot of research about China and the political culture of the time

Jialing just simply trying to survive A story of fox spirits murder and searching for happiness Janie Chang s writing in Dragon Springs Road is not something to overlook My Thoughts Now It is NO secret that Janie Chang s Three Souls is my all time favorite novel I ve been waiting for this novel since before it was even announced when it was just a blurb on Janie s website about how she was working on a historical fiction novel set in China and I was waiting and waiting and WAITING for ANY information When I was contacted by Janie to receive I copy of this novel before it s release date I SCREAMED and ran up and down the hallway of my residence hall at school hugging every one of my friend s who came out to ask what was going on and definitely scaring some people who thought I was probably having a psychotic episode I waS SO EXCITEDNeedless to say I was TERRIFIED going into this book There s so many things that made me nervous to dive into this story what if it wasn t as good as Three Souls What if I hated it What if I m disappointed Considering I ve been disappointed and incredibly upset when reading my favorite author s not as good books I was so so SO scared of this book because I d been waiting for SO LONG to get my hands on itI was not disappointedThough not as good as Three Souls but I doubt anything ever will be this novel was BEAUTIFUL I suppose I should say a disclaimer but it should be obvious that my opinion for this book has not been swayed I wasn t even asked to do a review I was simply asked if I would like a copy of Janie s book because she knew how much I loved her first book and she s the sweetest human being EVER I simply loved this book and it s 100% unbiased ly worthy of the 55 stars I ve given itObviously Janie s writing is gorgeous I ve always been able to read her writing so easily the last few times I ve read through Three Souls I ve been able to do it in one or two sittings because I just absolutely eat up her words They re simple not too flowery but not too minimalist her writing is the perfect type that just punches you in the face But like you appreciate it punching you in the face trust meThese characters Though I WILL admit I was a little confused with Janie s explanation of one of the characters in the back of the book but besides that little confusion I loved all of these characters I just wanted Jialing to be happy I loved the Yang s even Grandmother Yang and especially Anjuin I even loved Sanmu who reminded me SO MUCH of Hanchin and Mr Shea I loved Fox I loved Anna I loved Jialing s friends who always stayed by her side and I loved Taiyong Janie Chang has an incredible talent for writing characters that latch onto your heart and make you care SO MUCH FOR THEMThe plot was also amazing Although this one was much subtle and not as exciting and filled with plot devices pushing the story along like Three Souls I appreciated the little stories that left you feeling comfortable and at home kind of like comfort food if that makes sense Jialing s life isn t all that exciting and the little events in this book that tell her story aren t necessarily the most enthralling but I loved each and every one The plot twists and craziness that DID happen in this book though like omg it was CRAZY view spoiler I was almost crying at what happened with Fox Mr Shea and Ping Mei that whole scene was just SO EMOTIONAL hide spoiler
