    PaperbackÒ 日熄 eBook ´ 日熄 free, 日熄 MOBIIn 2012 President Xi Jinping first talked about the Chinese Dream a concept that aims to translate the American Dream into Chinese cultural concepts and by that is meant to capture a specifically Chinese version of the strife for success prosperity and happiness Author Yan Lianke knows that the line between a dream and a nightmare can be a thin one and that dreams might give free reign to our subconscious urges and fears The Day the Sun Died is his novel about the Chinese dream and as many of Yan Lianke's sat

    PaperbackÒ 日熄 eBook ´ 日熄 free, 日熄 MOBIIt's an imaginative satire of modern China In a rural setting and over the course of one night people start dreamwalking carrying out activities that they were thinking about or doing before they went to sleep Slowly the night becomes chaotic and violent Lin is a 14 year old boy and his parents try to stem the tied and work to making the sun come up again and the night to endMy main criticism of this interesting interpretation of the dangers of modernisation the great dream of renewal is it seemed to meander repetitively for some time before something new was introduced The cheeky thoughts of Lin and how he viewed his world before dreamwalking was a highlight for me
