A House Divided, the third volume of the trilogy that began with The Good Earth and Sons, is a powerful portrayal of China in the midst of revolution. Wang Yuan is caught between the opposing ideas of different generations. After 6 years abroad, Yuan returns to China in the middle of a peasant uprising. His cousin is a captain in the revolutionary army, his sister has scandalized the family by her premarital pregnancy, and his warlord father continues to cling to his traditional ideals. It is through Yuan's efforts that a kind of peace is restored to the family.

A House Divided deals with the grandchildren of Wang Lung, the farmer. War and oppression have changed the country and made the young fight for freedom from the old rules and customs. Foreign schools and foreign immigrants have brought new ideas to this generation.

The main chapter is Yuan Wang, the son of The Tiger. The Tiger tries to raise his son to be a soldier like himself. But when the Tiger sends his son away to the southern school of war, Yuan learns the tools of revolution which would make him an enemy of his father. Juan runs away from both revolution and his father and is educated in a foreign land. He is a good student and learns many things, but his restless heart struggles to decide who he is and how he will live his life.

This is a really good book and a fitting end to the trilogy. It doesn't try to resolve every dalema, but leaves the possibilities open to ponder as every parent does with their own children. I liked it alot.

This is # 3 of the "Good Earth" trilogy, we are introduced to the third generation of the Wang family. In the second book we met "The Tiger" who has become a powerful War Lord in China. We are now introduced to his offspring, Yuan. Yuan has been sent away to school to be trained for the military; The Tiger is hopeful that Yuan will follow in his footsteps. However, it is not meant to be. Yuan like to read and study, and I could see traits similar to the original Wang from Book # 1, the farmer of the good earth! However, this is not meant to be either.

Yuan travels to the U.S. to avoid being arrested for his association with revolutionaries in China; he studies and learns western ideas and adopts a western lifestyle. Returning to China 6 years later he finds difficulty readapting to Chinese ways.

Pearl Buck writes with authority about life in China especially involving family ties. However, she dwells on Yuan too much and his desires for his life. When he fails to achieve he cries and moans, curled into a fetal position in his bedroom. Often! After awhile, enough is enough! "A House Divided" was my least favorite of the "Good Earth Trilogy". I did continue to learn a lot about the Chinese way of life,

When I was about to say, "Finally the ending", I was surprised with a beautiful ending; it was beautifully written and made me satisfied to have finished.

I did find the trilogy an important book to read and I am proud that it is a part of my library.

This final installment of the House of Earth Trilogy presents the outcome of a revolution that changes the face of a society. I liked this book slightly more than the second installment in the trilogy because it expanded beyond the relationship between fathers and sons and more into the relationships between men and women, something I’m much more interested in. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that this book was a romance, because it definitely was not. But for the first time in this trilogy, it is acknowledged that perhaps all women aren’t the same, perhaps they each have something different and unique to contribute and to offer.

I found it interesting how all the Wang men were all so similar in their self-interest and willingness to ignore the good of the family for their personal good, and for that reason so divided in their aims even though Wang the patriarch has tried so hard to set things up so that land would keep his family together. This was an interesting look at the diffusion of new and western ways into a traditional society and an exposition of the irony of revolution and how that quest never ends.

Maybe if you buy the Trilogy from the beginning, you won't have my experience. My book club chose Pearl Buck's "The Good Earth" to read in April. I remembered reading it many years ago, so I looked forward to re-reading it with my friends. I didn't know this was a Trilogy until I finished "The Good Earth" and found out about "Sons" and "A House Divided." I bought "Sons," and because I loved the first two books, I bought the third one. As I started reading it, I realized that I had already read some of this in "Sons." Ok, maybe that was how Ms. Buck handled the transition to the third book. However, much to my dismay, I had paid $9.99 for the Kindle version only to discover that more than half the book was duplicated from what I'd read in "Sons." I think this is probably just a problem in the Kindle version, but my recommendation is to buy the Trilogy from the beginning (much cheaper too). These books are classics and you are going to want to know the Wang family through the generations.

I liked all three volumes equally and yet, differently. The first was to set the stage of the "beginnings" of a family. At least, where she starts us. There is more going in that volume with all the changes, hardships, struggle. More traditional story than character. At least for me. The second volume really sets up the personality differences within the family, the changes from the father to his children. Then, in the last volume, much much slower pace..........much to say about the the world, how this 3rd generation has so changed with the times. And of course they had the money to do it. We see a more global approach to society and much of the frustration that Yuan and his generation feels as a result: prejudice, struggle between classes, and still a clinging to old Chinese customs.

Others who reviewed this said that they thought the ending was unrealistic. I am torn on only this point. But I was so sad for Yuan by the end, I wanted resolution. And maybe, just maybe we saw it as abrupt when all the while Pearl planned it that way because, the reader like Yuan was not privy to exactly what Mei Ling was really thinking and feeling. Or perhaps she didn't know herself until she saw him with his dying father.

I loved the flow of the writing. It gave me a feeling of being there watching the stories unfold. I read the Good Earth many many years ago, and stumbled upon the two following books when I looked to get the Good Earth. It was lovely to revisit an old story and find something new at the same time.
