Registering as PC, but will soon set it to travelling when sending it to owlet who has it on her wishlist.
I like Amy Tan, I liked this one, I'll sure want to re-read it.
Never saw the movie and don't think I will, doesn't appeal to me.
Net op de bus gedaan naar uiltje. Veel plezier!
Received it today, thanks a lot, maupimaup! Never even knew there was a movie of this book. I read about Amy Tan in Time Magazine a few years ago and was curious about her, and now thanks to bookcrossing, I'm finally looking at one of her books! Don't know when I'll come around it yet, but I will eventually :-)
Thanks again for lending it!
p.s.: nice drawing on the envelope, especially the owlet :-)
Thank you very much for sharing this book, maupi, it’s a wonderful book. It reminded me so much of the relationship I have with my mother and had with my grandmother, misunderstandings between us, wishes and disappointments, love and stories from their youth, different cultures (my mother is French, but was born and raised in Madagascar, while I was born and raised in Europe and learned the “hard” Western ways). So many differences between mother and daughter, the mother trying to change the daughter and to learn her her ways.
I was amazed by the enormous difference between the life of the mothers and daughters. The daughters all had the easy, confortable life in modern society, while all the mothers new hard times, with lots of rules and hardship. Sometimes one forgets that the mother had a whole life of her own, was a child once and had to learn things too.
Well, I’m getting sentimental, I’d better stop now! It was a great read and I’ll definitely read another of Amy Tan’s books!
edit, May 30: I'm sending the book back to maupi
Back home. Glad owlet enjoyed it so much.
(en ik pm je nog, uilke)
