Good Earth Trilogy (Volume One). This was what Vinteuil had done for the little phrase. The kitchen was made of earthen bricks as the house was, great squares of earth dug from their own fields, and thatched with straw from their own wheat.

Good Earth Trilogy (Volume One). Swann felt that the composer had been content (with the instruments at his disposal) to draw aside its veil, to make it visible, following and respecting its outlines with a hand so loving, so prudent, so delicate and so sure, that the sound altered at every moment, blunting itself to indicate a shadow, springing back into life when it must follow the curve.

This third book in the Good Earth/Sons/A House Divided trilogy follows the life of Wang Yuan, son of a local warlord .

This third book in the Good Earth/Sons/A House Divided trilogy follows the life of Wang Yuan, son of a local warlord and grandson the the patriarch of The Good Earth. He has left the revolutionary movement brewing in the south, but finds that he can’t tolerate living with the old traditions of his father's region. Thus Yuan moves to a coastal Chinese city where his stepmother and half sister live. Having rediscovered Pearl Buck through her books about World War II, I also found out that The Good Earth was book I of III. I determined to finish the set. Book II, Sons, about wore me out.

Her classic novel The Good Earth (1931) was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and William Dean Howells Medal. Books–the whole trilogy–show life in three generations of family and there are focused only on some members and of course turbulent society. Born in Hillsboro, West Virginia, Buck was the daughter of missionaries and spent much of the first half of her life in China, where many of her books are set. In 1934, civil unrest in China forced Buck back to the United States. Throughout her life she worked in support of civil and women’s rights, and established Welcome House, the first international, interracial adoption agency.

I've read the first of the trilogy... The Good Earth. This is a slow read, nevertheless a fascinating one. The characters are so well developed that by the end of the story you might feel like you know what they're thinking. The author doesn't seem to favor any one character, each is equally likable and distasteful in their own way. Having said all that, and though the story follows the characters throughout their life, I feel this book is more about culture and the era than is is about people. Their experiences are there to depict the great difficulty and small triumphs of life in China in the late 1800's, close to the turn of the century. Though many of the events are somber, the characters regard them as an achievement or an advantage. The author does a fantastic job of illustrating the differences in perception between Chinese and western society. I couldn't get this story out of my head for days after I had finished. I did feel that I needed to read something lighter before moving on to the second book but I am looking forward to it.

This beautiful trilogy contains these masterpieces: "The Good Earth," "Sons" and "A House Divided," all were published in 1930's. (Btw, I learnt that this trilogy was named as "The House of Earth" and not "The Good Earth Trilogy." Never mind.) Books describe one Chinese family, plot is located into early 20th century (there is no know the date of plot exactly, because Pearl S. Buck did not provide explicit dates).

Books–the whole trilogy–show life in three generations of family and there are focused only on some members and of course turbulent society. The books show and highlight dozens very important things about China and Chinese, I am not about to write full contents of all three books, but I am only about to hint considerable themes which appear in the books and which are interesting and important for sinologist. Well, in the trilogy appears mainly these themes: family, including marriage (filial piety, purpose, spousal selection, connection with love, traditional and new); relations between members of family and their changes from one generation to another; misunderstanding between people from different time or location, including generation gap; interpersonal relationships and habits (implicit, explicit, changes); Chinese customs (old-fashioned and contemporary ones); landholding; famines; describing society through generations, including politics and crucial transformations; education (role, classical, pragmatic); religion (traditional and newer); peasantry (several levels); army & the military (different kinds); old and new political events, including revolutions and uprisings; Christianity; American & European influences; sundry revisions through time; clash between West and East; confrontation between Old and Newer; multiculturalism; racialism; assessment of pride; value of human life; disparity between genders or class status; and last but not least parameters of the successful life (definitions, modifications).

People who are interested in China, including sinologists, must read this Trilogy!

I cannot imagine reading The Good Earth without reading the rest of the trilogy. Once I started, I could not put it \down. It's beautifully written. I never learned so much about China as I have reading the trilogy. A must read. This is one of the best series of books (best book) I have ever read. Just wonderful

The story of 3 generations of one Chinese family starting with "The Good Earth" are all in this one edition. I somehow managed to be retirement age without reading "The Good Earth", so decided to just read the whole trilogy. It was wonderful having all the volumes together so I could refer to notes took throughout to help keep all the characters straight.

I really liked like how Pearl S Buck used different sentence structure in each book to help portray the development of the family in different generations. They progressed from lowly farmers in "The Good Earth", to a war lord in "Sons", and finally westernized grandson in "A House Divided".

I've read these books before, so when I saw them on sale I had to get them. Ms. Buck writes wonderfully; this is a quick read because the story just flows so easily. You get the sense this could have been set in the 17th, 18th, or 19th century, (until you get to a part that features a train ride) because the simple farmer's life could have been anytime in the past. The only thing that might grate a bit to 21st century readers is the treatment of women and girls, but I think if you read a story set in the past, you have to make allowances for the existing customs and attitudes of the times. Ms. Buck has written other books from a woman's POV. ALL of her books are highly recommended!

What more could I possibly add to the the millions of words of praise for this trilogy. It was written nearly 80 years ago, but it is ageless. We all still struggle in spirit as these characters do. It is so wonderful to sink into a well written novel where the prose flows easily and the author transports us into the hearts and minds of these rich characters. Buck made me to feel as if I were speaking Mandarin through her carefully crafted language. I simply couldn't put the books down until finished. Read each one in a single sitting. Good thing it was a trilogy so that I was forced to take a break between each one.
