best amy tan book ever.... and a lot of feelings were placed in it

I absolutely loved the book. I've all of Amy Tan's books and next to "The Hundred Secret Senses", this one beats all. I loved the way the story ended. Amy, be sure to write another one. Okay?

I absolutely love this book!!!

This is Amy Tan's best book yet!

It was a very good book, a very fast read, great!!!!

I loved it . I am trying to get my six daughters to read it also

I was relunctant at first to red the book.. it was for a school project, but once i started i could nto put it down. I fell in love with the characters and i could relate with Ruths anxiety about her ailing mother. It was a wonderful, well written novel i woudl surely read again.
