The Joy Luck Club - Amy Tan it was okay... the writing style was good and everything, and it was interesting. but i totally got all the characters mixed up (i had to keep referring to the little guide in the front of the book), and i felt like it was a little TOO depressing and dramatic. there was barely a single happy moment in the whole thing... except for the very end. but not even cuz the end was more bittersweet really.
