Love this book!

I read this book for a course in college and fell in love with it. I loved how it examed the clash between the parents who had immigrated from China to the US and their children who had grown up in the US. It emphasizes the clash between the two conflicting cultures. Most of all, it interesting to see how the daugthers perceived their mothers to be weak and stuck in the ways of their homelands and then it was exciting to hear the mothers stories and find out just how strong and bold these women really were. I would definitely recommend this book.

Good but not Tan's best

I love a couple of other Amy Tan books, and this one is good, just not as good as some of her others. Like several of her books, this one is convoluted plot-wise, but it lacks the dynamism of the others and can be boring or confusing at times.
