The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck

Much better than the last book.  I found this in the office and figured it would be worth reading.  Then I found out Pearl S. Buck had won a Pulitzer Prize for it.  

This was a beautifully written book, very easy to read and heartwarming as well.  I feel like most "classic" novels have to end dramatically or have some sort of tragedy.  If anything, this book had a calming affect on me.  Its about a Chinese family before the revolution and basically about how they go from poverty to riches.  

Excellent easy read.
