Another great book by Amy Tan! Fantastic story telling and imagery of Chinese life during war time, as well as a nod to family relations. I highly recommend.

This book is for those who love a well told story. The author starts the book out on a humorous note but then spins a tale that is serious and very emotionally engaging. It is also a vividly portrayed story with some of the most beautiful imagery I have ever read. This book will have you thinking about the story and its characters long after you finish reading it. Highly recomended!

I love this book, because not only I learned how much a person might suffered in life, but also I learned how a family might have many problems and still be able to survive with each other in life. I highly recommend this book by Amy Tan!

Had to read it for my Lit.Circle in English and it's a great novel to read because it's so realistic.
