Joy Luck Club (Amy Tan)

Fiction, 4/10 – June 2008

Perhaps this book was a bit too clever for me? I found following the several different characters hard and always assumed the relationship between them would either be explained or inter whine at the end. I was also aware of some more complex literature techniques being used that I’m sure my old English teachers would love – I got a bit of the symbolism and metaphor but probably missed the “greatness” of it. Anyway, I found it hard work to read. I enjoyed learning a bit about old Chinese customs and also a bit about how older people might view younger people.
