  1. A barbarian in ChinaReviewed by Ben AntaoIf you ve ever wondered how a father s views can influence his son, you only need to read Barbarian LOST by Alexandre Trudeau about his travels in China in 1990, 2006 and 2008 This informative and insightful travelogue takes a penetrating look at new China, its emergence as an economic powerhouse, shaped by political control of the communist party, with interesting historical nuggets interspersed no doubt for the edification of the philistines Trudeau, 42 [...]


  2. disclaimer I received a free signed copy of this book as part of an event hosted by the publisher Harper Collins The first thing that struck me as I started getting into this book, was that it was sorely mis categorized Set among history political science books, it has a far deserving place in the travel section of any bookstore, since it s clear Trudeau is in love with the idea of understanding people by traveling to where they are live, than he is in dissecting complex political structures o [...]


  3. I read this book after I returned from a two week visit to China The trip was a group tour of seven cities where we visited all the major tourist attractions the Great Wall, the Terra Cotta Warriors, the Bund, the Forbidden City, the rice terraces, etc It was a great trip and I was amazed at all the changes that were made since I last visited China in 1978 We caught glimpses of everyday life as the bus drove down highways past huge office buildings designed to inspire awe and clusters of skyscra [...]


  4. I enjoyed this book from a number of perspectives As a travelogue it does a very good job in covering from different perspectives a massive, interesting and complex nation Even though the nine chapters are all very different he uses his expertise as a documentary filmmaker to somehow and quite enjoyably weave them together It is well written and his perspectives and those of the people he met provide a real glimpse into the new China As a fellow Canadian and thus being familiar with his family, [...]


  5. Barbarian Lost Travels in the New China chronicles the author s travels in the new China and reflects on its place in the modern world The author has made nearly a dozen trips to China accompanied by a young Chinese journalist and translator in an effort to get a sense of where the country stands now and where it s headed The author looks at China s relationship with its past and its relationship with the West, Chinese values family, urban, rural, traditional and modern the economy, the environm [...]


  6. Provides interesting insight into the social life in China yet there is no cohesive narrative or structure in the writing making it a bit of a hard read Would have likely been a lot better if co authored by someone such as Chantal Hebert


  7. I m fascinated by China, so I enjoyed being taken along by Trudeau on his travels to some unexpected places there He meets with interesting people and explores their hopes and fears for the future of the country He s definitely got his own point of view, and it s fun to go along for the ride


  8. I found this book dull and boring as it s a genre I would never read except for the book club I belong to The lives of the people Alexandre met were interesting but the description of places was flat The book needed maps and pictures to help me visualize where he was.


  9. Interesting tour of the country I would have enjoyed it if he had included a map of the country Some pictures would have been nice too.


  10. DNF I just had to give up reading this book There was no cohesive narrative and the author comes off as a jerk.


  11. This was a disappointing read The title is misleading as this book relates one month s travel to China in 2006 and an interview with Ai Weiwei just prior to the Olympic Games of 2008 I was expecting something a bit recent considering the enormous changes occurring in China The first 80 pages are so badly written, English version I almost quit Further, the stories were uninspiring At one point, Trudeau tells of a 4 day cruise trip on the Yangtze river He stays in his cabins for most of it and ev [...]


  12. Sacha Trudeau, younger brother of our PM, writes a very insightful book about his travels through China with a young, interesting, translator Along the way he stays in a small village, in a hut I would even shy away from, small hotels and on a boat cruising down the Pearl River He visits manufacturing plants, large stores and small restaurants He discusses communism and Chinese history with people from all walks of life and all economic classes.This is a fascinating peep into the psyche of a gre [...]


  13. Two Innocents in Red China by Pierre Trudeau and Jaques Hebert 1960 s was a much interesting and captivating read than the son s.Alexandre s style is dry and lifeless compared to his father Hebert s book But still a very good read and insightful.Perhaps they could have asked Chantal Hebert to co author.
