Finished - The Joy Luck Club
That is basically what I have taken from the book. I imagine that everybody could interpret it a little differently. I really enjoyed this book and would probably have read it in one sitting if it wasn't for work (or stitching of course). I'm not sure what I actually feel about the back. I can't think of much else to say about it or ways to describe it other than I enjoyed it and thought it was a good read. I liked the fact that it brought back lots of memories of my holiday in San Francisco. I liked looking into these lives which are so different from my own. I will definitely make a point of reading more of Amy Tan's work.
I did a search on this book just to see if I could see what others thought of the book. The first one I cam across described it as a bad Chinese book. The individual was from Chinese descent and describes all of Amy Tan's books in this way. I stopped searching after that as I didn't want to be put off. Still it made me think. I suppose there could be Scottish writing out there that lots of people love but us Scots would class as trash. Maybe it's like that (although my knowledge of Scottish literature is extremely poor).
