Personal rating - ****
Genre - Fiction
Quick Summary - Vignettes about four chinese women and four of their daughters, touching on the differences between Chinese and Chinese-American life.

I am a few chapters into The Joy Luck Club...anyone else read it? I know I'm kind of behind, because the book came out a while ago, but I've just now gotten a chance to read it. I love it so far. I am impressed with the 8-person perspective--it's a bold choice, but Tan makes it work. Anyone have thoughts they'd like to share?

I found that book truly wonderful. Enjoyed the movie as well, which is NOT often the case when it comes to film adaptations...
