The Woman Warrior (book review)

Maxine Hong Kingston’s The Woman Warrior weaves stories of Chinese her childhood, myths and family into an interesting novel. This book is set during the Chinese revolution in the 40s and brings to life the immigration of Chinese families, their struggles, values and ideals. The main character must grow up with these values, which in reality devalue women, and despite this, she finds an identity for herself throughout the book. The Woman Warrior is a great novel about identity, Chinese myths and values and immigration.
