Everything. Couldn't tell you if it is too historically accurate but I reminds me of my mother who grew up in Japan. I have read through this book twice now and it never gets old. The story makes me home sick for the "traditional" Japan and "old fashioned" times.
Hatsumomo's fall from grace.
Yes! holly cow yes.
The move tries to capture the magic of the book but it just does not come close. I love the movie, but I always hate when they stray from the timeline and order of the book. If you like the move, try the book.
This sits in the middle of my list but I really identify with the "eastern" way of raising a child since that is how I was raised.
If you had a traditional "eastern" parent then you will really identify with this book. If you have had close friends as a child who where Asian then you will see a lot of familiar things with their parents.
absolutely, The movie left out so may good parts like all books to movies do.
Chablis, I could not help by smile every time she entered the story.
This book makes you laugh with all the characters in and around Savannah. I did not find a sad moment in the book.
The book gets slow at times but over all a good read.
I would recommend this book to my friends who love romantic books. I liked it but the story was just too....standard romance novel. Their in love, their not in love, and it flip flops the entire book.
The book was read beautifully and the narrator was very expressive.
I would recommend this book to everyone I know! This is going into my list of favorite books.
The terrible awful
All the narrators did so great
I have a hard time picking a favorite charter.
I saw bits and pieces of the movie and thought, what the hay, I will read the book. The book was so great! I just loved it. the movie is spectacular but the book is worlds better. read this book!
I always like listening to a book that has been made into a movie. I have yet to see this movie because I don't want to be disappointed in the move. The book took me to another place and gives you such a happy feeling from the romantic parts.
I could not stand listening to this book. I did not like how it was written and how it was narrated. Didn't even finish the book. I learned nothing new from this book that I was not told by my girlfriends who have been through it.
This is the first baby book that I have looked into. Very truthful and funny. I don't like the ones that read like text books. besides, I have heard a lot of the do's and don'ts from all my mommy friends.
If you are looking for a baby text book, then this is not for you. If you like a silly but true look at pregnancy then get this book! it is too cute, I loved it.
yes, I could not stop listening. I was hooked.
If you dont care about a good story line but like the juicy parts of "romance" novels, you will like this
I will just avoid this author all together
Each short story is about 20 minutes long, you dont get descriptions of anything, it just right into sex. I enjoy a romance novel as much as the next red blooded women but this was just horrible!
Average. I feel very neutral about the book. I didn't hate it but it wasn't the kind of book I couldn't put down either.
I loved the story line of Mother teaches daughter about the bad parts of love but they both learn its not as bad as they had thought. I could predict every portion of the book but it was a cute story.
