Up until he turned five, Henry had never known the darker side of life, and his existence passed as a series of pleasures which ran one into the next. As he grew the boy discovered in turn the joy of self-locomotion, the power of speech, and the pleasure of socializing with a group of well-adjusted peers. And yet these happy times were not to last, as events beyond the young boy's control conspired to draw storm clouds over this idyllic period and introduce a dangerous and uncontrollable element into his life.

By the way, I find all your podcasts very very quiet. It's a bit inconvenient.

I have a very interesting(and important) question. What kind of book would you recommend for English-speaking Cantonese learners? Those which could be bought in Hong-Kong. The reason why I'm asking, is that I find that some books on Cantonese have different Yuetpin and pronounciation(disgusting old fashioned tape-quality voices), so I'd like to stick with standard Hong Kong Cantonese.

If you know a good book on Cantonese, please advise.

Thanks! ^o^
