The Paper Menagerie

Edition language: English
Read as part of [book:The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories|24885533]. One of my favorite stories of the bunch and definitely deserves to be singled out!
I'm not really sure how to rate this one. Liu's writing is always good, and I love the story's slow build--the family relationships, the magic of the origami. But the ending falls flat on its face.
This is the most powerful short story I have ever read. The Paper Menagerie is such an emotionally moving story, it left me reeling for a while after reading it. If you have blocked tear ducts, this story will unblock it.
