"Amy Tan effortlessly mixes tenderness and bitter irony, sorrow and slicing wit. The Joy Luck Club is a fabulous concoction." (Louise Erdrich)
This is a fabulous story - extremely well written but should not be abridged. I would have given it five stars had I listened to the entire book. It needed the extra flesh.
I could listen to this book over and over again. Its one of the best mother and daughter books. Amy Tran is a great writer and its great that she reads it too.
It was nice to have a set of faces to go with the characters since I had already see the movie countless time. The book wasn't a disappointment by far. In fact I quite enjoyed it except for some dragged out moments the were the stories could have become confusing. The narrator was truly wonderful. Gwendoline Yeo made a sad tale into a bit more up beat I will certainly be look for more of Ms.Yeo's narrations in the near future.
