An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

Ties That Bind, Ties That Break

Ties That Bind, Ties That Break - Lensey Namioka

I enjoyed this book, but I had to skip all descriptions of foot binding (there were a few places where it seemed like it was being mentioned, so I just skipped ahead a page). I also didn't like the historical note. It mentions "African women" (which women in Africa?) who undergo body modifications that don't seem on par with foot binding. Also, wearing high high heels isn't really comparable to having bound feet.


Other than that, I mostly enjoyed the story, and I'm looking forward to the companion novel more.
