It's first time, but in literature instead of science, feel a little pity.
Wish more chinese to win nobel prize in various ways.
Have ever read a book called Profile Milder forbidden in mainland China written by a Chinese author Duo duo. It is very popular among HongKongese, Taiwanese and Japanese. It was written by using a kind of subtle words that can't be translated into English as that's only read in Chinese, which displayed the Chinese Unable-translated beauty.
I love it for its classic style and mysterious feelings.

IT'S VERY UNIQUE
