    Wonderful

    This is the third, maybe the fourth time, I have read this. I love it more every time and I see new things in it each time, as well.

    The Joy Luck Club is about the bond between mother and daughter, in particular Chinese immigrant mothers and their American born and raised daughters in San Francisco. What I liked best about this book is the insight into life in China, and how different it is from life in North America. The folk legends, the sayings, the views on fortune and fate... The views of the same situation from the mother's perspective as opposed to the daughter's perspective are quite different! What I didn't like so much was the descriptions of the awkward and (at times) heartbreaking relationships in the different families and learning about their situations. I didn't care about the characters deeply, and at times I found it hard to identify with them. A wonderfully written book about family and the joys and sorrows it can bring.
