    1. The book answered my question: Is the nature of a human changed after becoming a eunuch? I found significant time necessary to reflect on this book. I always assumed becoming a Eunuch removed the desire to sin and a person became less human or even nonhuman. The stories show that some of the worst, most envious, devious, and greediest Chinese were Eunuchs. They sought wealth, power, beautiful women in equal measure to non-Eunuchs. Physically becoming a eunuch might have caused most to be asexual [...]



    2. Love it! You get to know about part of China's history. Not only that, you will somehow got the idea of how life was like being an eunuch. While reading the book, you somehow got immersed into reading and got the feeling that you are right beside him as he recounts his tale. Got a little tearful toward the ending but somehow happy that he managed to live a long life due to his optimistic and wise outlook.


    3. Have you ever wondered what a Chinese pop history reads like? Well get this book and find out, because it’s a Chinese pop history book about the end of the Qing dynasty translated into English, but not in any way else really altered for the US market. Shoot the cover’s even got that ugly monospace font that you get with the Chinese font in Windows. The translation is actually really solid and has been completely proofread, but it’s not TOO smooth so as to let you forget that you are readin [...]


    4. I finally managed to finish a book! The best thing about this book is that the chapters are really short. So it is easy to read because you always feel like you are making progress. Plus no one story or anecdote goes on too long. It is mildly interesting, unless you are very interested in Chinese history or the history of Chinese dynasties. Then you would probably find it very interesting. I found it just interesting enough to keep reading but only barely.I suppose it does give some insight into [...]


    5. Akhirnya nemu juga kisah nyata kasim Cina yg menarik! beberapa bulan terakhir aku cari-cari novel dan non fiksi tema kasim di GR. Aku nyarinya ga berpatokan pada kasim Cina atau kasim Korea saja, krn ada juga kisah castrato/penyanyi opera di Eropa yg sengaja jadi kasim buat mempertahankan suara soprano/alto mereka. Tapi cuma nemu kisah-kisah tsb dlm bentuk novel. Yg ini kebetulan nemu karena tadi lagi google soal kasim Cina secara aku lagi baca m/m romance yg ada kasim Cina di dlmnya. Dan, setel [...]


    6. A wonderfully gripping account of the transition of China through the last imperial dynasty through the cultural revolution. The biographer keeps all anecdotes short while maintaining their poignancy which makes for a quick but thoroughly gripping read. While the duties of a eunuch are centered around servitude to the imperial elite, I wish they had elaborated a bit more on the circumstances during the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. Anyone unfamiliar with the chaos and destructi [...]


    7. I took ages to get through this book as i was down with a bad flu and had so many work and domestic issues to get thru. I would probably have enjoyed it more if i had not been distracted by so many tasks. Having said that it is a good book, a good acoount of life in China in the 1900. so its not ancient history, yet things were v different from the China of today. I do like this writers style, despite the detailed accounts and losing track of the many Chinese names. I would like to read his biog [...]


    8. The Last Eunuch of China is the story about the life of Sun Yaoting. He was born of a poor famiy. He was castrated at the age of 8 and entered the Imperial Palace when he was 15 yearsold. He first served Empress Dowager Duankang and then Empress Wanrong. He then served the Emperor Pu Yi. This book is about his life as a eunuch and the life he lead after leaving thePalace. Sun Yaoting died at the age of 94 in Beijing.


    9. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and really appreciate the english translation which I thought was very natural, but still retained some vague chinese-ness. The book is a pretty quick read, and gives a very personal glimpse into the end of the Qing dynasty through the lens of a eunuch, a group which evokes images of dark secrets and palace intrigue. Bought it in the middle of the Forbidden palace, which is where most of the events take place.


    10. From the cover---China's last eunuch Sun Yaoting died in December 1996 at age 94. He took with him intimate stories of the last vestiges of Imperial China and was himself the last in the line of eunuchs who had served the royal family for more then 2,000 years.I found his story which is set against the events in Chinese history over the last hundred years quite fascinating. Of course this coincided with my trip to China.


    11. This book reveals the many hidden stories of the life in the Forbidden City during the Imperial China period. From how Sun Yaoting decided to become a eunuch despite of her mother's disapproval to the moments the author paid respects during the funeral of the last eunuch of China. A great book, indeed.



    12. Intereting book, especially having visited the forbidden city it was nice to be able to invasion the setting.





    13. very interesting. history of china in 20ste eeuw seen through the eyes of a servant of the last emperor.
