    Set in contemporary San Francisco and in a Chinese village where Peking Man is being unearthed, The Bonesetter's Daughter is an excavation of the human spirit: the past, its deepest wounds, its most profound hopes. Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club, brilliantly presents "storytelling in its oldest and truest form".

    Eileen says: "Exceptionally good"
    "Fantastic - one of a kind"
    Overall

    This book is in a class of its own. I listed to this one every chance I had.

    The Bonesetter's Daughter is A wonderful story with outstanding narration. Amy Tan is a gifted narrator,in addition to being a gifted author.

    I look forward to more Amy Tan books.

    Story

    With The Interruption of Everything, her sixth novel, Terry McMillan takes on the fault lines of mid-life and family life, reminds us once again of the redeeming power of friendship, and turns her eye toward the dilemma of how a woman starts to put her own needs higher on the to-do list while not shortchanging everyone else.

    Ann says: "Great to listen to"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed Terry McMillan's books (reading them, not audiobooks) in the past. I was disappointed with this audiobook and narrator in general. The ending of this book seemed like a cop-out to me. The dialog was trite and elementary, filled with cliches and the narrator was nearly emotionless and stiff. I had just finished an Amy Tan book and the comparison between that audiobook and this audiobook is not at all flattering to this one.

    Purchase this audiobook with caution and don't listen to it immediately after a great audiobook. If you don't expect much, you may not be disappointed.
