    In 1949, four Chinese women drawn together by the shadow of their past begin meeting in San Francisco to play Mah Jong, invest in stocks, eat dim sum, and "say" stories. Nearly 40 years later, one of the members has died, and her daughter has come to take her place, only to learn of her mother's lifelong wish and the tragic way in which it has come true. The revelation of this secret unleashes an urgent need among the women to reach back and remember.

    Kathryn Bradley says: "Great Book, Horrible Reader"
    "Excellent!"

    Would you listen to The Joy Luck Club again? Why?

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them!


    What about Gwendoline Yeo’s performance did you like?

    Each character had a different voice. This is different from many of the other books I have listed to such as Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, We Were the Mulvaneys and In Cold Blood


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the end when June met her sisters in China


    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised at how close the movie was to the book. I have never seen such a true representation of the literature.
