Personally , I thought that Ding Ling 's story , Sketches from the `Cattle Shed , was very interesting . It is not often that someone has a story to tell that is so interesting and unique . Also , it is not often that someone like her comes along to tell their story . First of all , there is the fact that she is a female writer from China during the mid-to-late 1900 's . That , all by itself , makes her contribution to literature even more exciting . Also , there is the fact that he Chinese government tried so hard to suppress her works , but they still have been released for us to view , and that all by itself is a very surprising and wonderful thing to have happened

I thought that the story itself was very well written and interesting Of course , it was very depressing and dark , but that can only be expected of the subject matter . All of Ding Ling 's struggles and hardships make for a touching , dramatic story . Truly , the struggles she faced during her internment are just as touching to read about today as they must have been when she originally wrote the story , back in 1979 after just having experienced the situation

So , all in all , I would say that I enjoyed Ding Ling 's story , Sketches from the `Cattle Shed , a great deal . Because of how rare her style of work is and her unique situation , she was able to write a very good story that really interests and touches the people who read it . In the end , I think that is what makes any story really enjoyable , the fact that you care about the characters while you read it.
