I love Amy Tan's writing. I read this one years ago so can't write a decent review - it's just been too long.
This is from a 'blurb': ...the world of California's immigrant Chinese...long-held secrets are revealed, and a family's myths are transferred ceremoniously to the next generation..brilliant tapestry of characters and conflicts...

"Got the book ok"
This was the JE you asked me to do, but... I can't just say that!!... I want to thank you a lot, also, for this one and for the other book you sent along, "Mystic River", as well as for the postcard (I have a special "thing" about deserts, since I visited the Maroccan Sahara. Since then I wish I can get to know a lot more of them. This summer I've been quite near the Atacama desert and felt truly sorry for not being able to go there! Maube sometime I'll be able to check the desert in Arizona!)

I promess to journal again, as soon as I get to read it.

I'm afraid I must say I didn't like this book as much as I thought, after hearing so much about Amy Tan's work! I almost left it aside when, for a moment, I was struggling to keep on...
I liked the thorough descriptions of the beginning of last century's life in China, but that was pretty all and... it's too much too less to get me going. I didn't quite understand the reason for so much secrecy and it sounded like just a motive, not very well worked out, for telling that lifetime story.

Anyway, I'm glad I read it, for I was very curious about the author... thanks a lot for that, hotflash.

I'll get this book back on the BC road soon...

Released 12 yrs ago (3/11/2007 UTC) at controlled release in Lisboa, -- Por correio / mão própria -- Portugal



A RABCK as an answer to the kittycatss' post at the "What books are you ISO?" thread (Wishlists forum) and a thank you gift as well for a much in need maths book (if one can believe it, for I hardly can... maths, me??!).

Hope you enjoy it more than I did and... keep it traveling!
