A Good Fall by Ha Jin

A Good Fall is a collection of short stories about life in America for Chinese immigrants. While the stories revealed to me details of the life of a Chinese immigrant I had not considered before, they did not entertain me. There was a very strange momentum to the stories and they all ended without any real conclusion or revelation.

I read it with my book club and none of them cared for the book either, so I would recommend passing this one by.

P.S. This counts as my Book With Up or Down (or Equivalent) in the Title for the What's In a Name Challenge.
