  • 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.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Worth reading again

    Amy Tan is one of my favourite authors. This is my second time reading The Joy Luck Club. There is so much I could read it 10 times and still find something new. A tale of 4 women from China and their 4 daughters, their experiences, relationships and strength. Wonderful book

  • The joy luck club

    the writing is beautiful. But it can be quite confusing to read because it is not a coheren narrative, more of individual storiesof 8 people that try to be connected. As such, the story may be better apprecated upon 2nd read

  • Good read

    Not what I had imagined the book would be, the book is very well written and interesting to get an incite to the Chinese way of thinking.
