A Bicycle Of Cathay

  [english | 1900]  

Frank Stockton


Summary: [The book description (above)is a spoiler because it tells you what happens in the end. Nevertheless I read and enjoyed the book. It takes a simple story and tells it entertainingly. My only disappointment was the ending chapter(s). It seems like the author runs out of steam and wants to finish the book in a hurry. Id still recommend the book however. The rest of it is very good.]
