    Country Driving PDF/EPUB Û Hardcover country epub, driving free, Country Driving KindleCounty Driving is really three books in one The first about Hessler's road trip along the Great Wall and about driving in China generally is entertaining but ultimately the least interesting of the three Although the episodes of his road trip are interesting it fails to add up to anything than shaggy dog storyIn the second part about life in a small village outside Beijing that undergoes huge transformation in just a few years as it is discovered by road tripping Beijingers Hessler stays put and takes the time to allow the full rich story to unfold The details are personal and insightful at times emotionally touching and at times academically fascinatingThe third part about a new industrial district in the south and a factory there shows the same power of observation and insight as the second part Through the experiences of one facto
