  2. Even though the comment says it s good and might have some highlights and notes in the book, I did not expect it to be so over written Almost every page is occupied by notes, and it didn t meet my expectation at all However the book is generally clean and it s not worn out


  3. I m a huge fan of Amy Tan I have read all her books, have shared them, read them again, and again this I think was her first book or first made into a movie , it s been years and decided to read again and couldn t find, so ordered and loved it so much, I got one for my daughter also I m keeping this copy for me This is not just a story of 4 friends and their 4 daughters it s the story of each mother having a history, that changed them, having friendships for decades, and how we must never assume [...]


  4. This is my third read through this book, and it just keeps getting better The characters and stories are all relatable in some ways, and confounding in others The breadth of experiences described in these stories means that at any point, some are directly relevant in my life, and others I can hardly imagine ever being true for anyone, even though I know they are I first read this book in my early teens, and will probably read it again in a few years I keep finding new gems in it, that I didn t h [...]


  5. If you re looking for a plot, don t bother If you re looking for character development and a description of cultural conflict between generations, this is your book I confess to being a little confused on the characters from segment to segment and I think the author could have differentiated the mothers better That having been said, it was a delightful read.


  6. This was a deep exploration of the relations of mothers and daughters Their ties to China and its culture are in virtually every paragraph It is a book about women The men do not fair so well in the prose The pressures of filial love vs cultural expectations are the palpable tensions Morality, superstition, long held views of life and tradition are preened and discarded or criticized There is a tone of cultural arrogance but tempered by primal genetic ties of longing, dreams and acceptance It is [...]


  7. Joy Luck Club was the best selling book by Amy Tan It epitomized the theme which has dominated Asian American writing for decades and still does to this day identity Specifically Joy Luck Club discusses two conflicts The first is about maintaining ones culture versus assimilating to a new country The second was the differences between generations over what to keep of the home culture.The story follows four older Chinese ladies who play Mah Jong together called the Joy Luck Club and their daughte [...]


  8. Amy Tan uses vignettes of different mothers and daughters going back and forth in time to tell their stories Although at first, it was hard to keep track of who was who, Ms Tan reveals their Chinese culture with such beauty that one can t help but be absorbed in the narrative Her prose is poetic, full of symbolism, and precise Every word counts She brings a different world, a different culture to life with the eye of an artist painting an exotic garden.


  9. This was a beautifully written book with even richer character development.Each character had such an interesting story and back story I felt I had been picked up placed into each life because it was so well told There were happy moments and sad moments between the mothers and their daughters.There are a lot of characters, and sometimes I struggled to remember who was who but I m like that with practically any story than has than 3 main characters It s my downfall.I m glad I read this, it was in [...]


  10. An absolute pleasure to read from start to finish Got slightly muddled with the characters but decided not to worry about that as it wouldn t be a chore to read it again because it is so beautifully written Looking forward to reading this authors other novels
