The Bonesetter’s Daughter by Amy Tan
Audiobook read by Amy Tan & Chen Joan Tan
Some of the backgrounds of the story line feels like The Joy Luck Club , but that makes perfect sense since they share the same writer.
Amy Tan had done a wonderful job, made all these different books set in similar background distinctively readable.
China and Chinese life in popular western books always seem so foreign to me, and I believe people buy those stories just because they are foreign and are familiarly-Chinese-image. After all, people from every corner of the world suffer the same troubles as others, struggling to work your ass off to pay bills, cursing politicians for not caring enough, complaining while secretly admiring and envying the super-rich and celebrities.
