Zhuang (Z for short) Xiao Qiao is a twenty-three years old Chinese woman who recently came to London to study English. In the beginning, she had much difficulty with the English language and nonetheless was not very familiar with the foreign country. One peaceful day, she went to the movies and met an Englishman who she fell in love with at first sight. Misunderstood his words when he let her come see his house, she eventually moves in. With his personality, he did not mind at all. As time passes, Z's feelings begin to grow, wanting him more each day. But how would their relationship turn out when their personalities are completely the opposite?
Z is quite an interesting character. In the beginning, she could barely string proper sentences (but enough that one could understand) but later on, her English got better and the way she view things is very controversial to many. People can relate to her and her lover because of their contrasting viewpoints in life. Z grew within time, learning things she would never knew if she stayed in China. A pretty good read, especially for the older audiences. Warning: Lots of sex.
