I was happy for him but also glad that I no longer had to argue that I could not go to America. Well, it’s clear to me LuLing should be the one to go to America with Miss Grutoff, Sister Yu said. Teacher Pan will soon be bossed around by a new wife, so LuLing has less need to stay.

I am never disappointed by Amy Tan's writing. Rich in history, brimming with character development as well as a truly gripping plot, she never fails to grab your hand and take you to a place within the Chinese culture you will not soon forget. She crafts her novels so well, I paint pictures in my mind of all the characters and geographical locations as I read. Tan provides a reading experience complete with illustrations of my own making; her words the medium, my imagination, the brush. I read "The Joy Luck Club" many years ago. I was so pleased to find so many of her other books available to download to my Kindle. Every page and every word surpassed this reader's expectations.

The Bonesetter's Daughter is vintage Amy Tan - fascinating interplay between traditional life in China in the past, and today's lives of Chinese Americans. Her familiar motif is learning from the past to make better adjustments to our present lives. I gave this four stars, not five, because for me the beginning chapters about the protagonist's difficulties in her American life were too long and repetitive. But once Ruth, the young Chinese American struggling with her mother, gets a translator for her mother's handwritten memoirs, the book came completely alive for me. Ruth begins to find out the truth about her mother's past life. This section is a novel within a novel, and since her mother escapes from China and comes to America, this part of the book might well have made a more powerful novel on its own. In the segment on the present, Ruth's mother is approaching dementia, manipulative, negative, and secretive. Ruth herself is rather uninteresting, and her lover's daughters are irritating. Worst of all, Ruth's mother is palpably unpleasant. In her memoirs, however, she is revealed to be strong, wrong-headed as young people often are, and yet brave and loving. How on earth did this interesting and fully developed woman become the harridan mother of the first part of the book? The picture of China during the Japanese invasion and just before, during China's initiation into the world of early paleontology, is fascinating and new to me, and quite beautifully delineated. And the anti-secret message is more complicated than usual in Tan's novels: keeping secrets, she suggests here, can be either life-saving or deadly, and maturity may well be learning when to keep information to ourselves, and when it is vital to be open. Wonderful.

First I can say that I love Amy Tan and her writing style. She gets to the heart of the Mother/Daughter relationship and here she explores it from the point of view of each. From modern day Ruth to her mother and her story allowing us to have more empathy for a character that when we first meet her, we don't really feel a lot of sympathy for her. But, once we learn the story of Lu Ling and the struggles she endured as a young woman, we come not only to appreciate her, but to appreciate Ruth more too. I learn so much when I read one of Amy's stories; about ancient China and the customs that shaped it's people. I found the story mostly a page turner and it kept me engrossed and I hated for it to end.

This is at times a heart wrenching story of courage and survival. On the surface you see an elderly Chinese woman living in USA and slowly losing her memory. But Luling has lived through enormous world events and cultural change.She lived in a small village just outside Peking (Beijing) and the author ties in the archaeological find of Peking Man, to show the contrast between ancient and modern beliefs. She is a believable, loveable, frustrating but brave woman who I would love to meet. It makes you think about what traits you inherit from your mother, and how we all have an inner strength to protect and advance our children.

Kegal
This engaging story of the past informing the present, mother / daughter relationships and the meaning of memory is beautifully executed. I throughly enjoy Amy Tan and would recommend this book, as I would her others. My only reservation is that all ends are so neatly tied up at the end, that it feels a little untrue to this otherwise delightfully chaotic and, at times, messy narrative both mother and daughter have been a part of.

Kigabar
Her stories always start out exciting, then her stories jump around from one subject to another. It's hard to understand what the plot of the book is.

One of the best things about this novel, I believe, is the accurate description of dementia. It doesn't matter if one is Chinese, German, or a mixture of everything, the mind of an elderly person with dementia is frustrating to those around especially immediate family. As LuLing becomes increasingly confused, there are other times when she is highly accurate. Of course, the daughter is frustrated. That frustration provides the framework for this novel in which the daughter uncovers her mother's real past.

That said, as a fan of historical fiction, I did enjoy the middle third of the book the best. LuLing's early years in China are the most interesting. The depiction of the dynamics of a Chinese family are intriguing.

Although as I said, I felt it was an accurate description of dementia, I give only three stars because I did feel the dementia/mother/daughter plot line a bit contrived. And, there seemed to be just a bit too much stereotyping of characters: the teenager step-daughters, the mother's language, the assisted living director. In short, a good read but not one that goes down as an all time favorite or especially memorable.

The three women in this story Precious Auntie , Lu L ing and Ruth are three generations of the Bonesitter! Hardship,family,fortune combine, lead you through the years living in China prior to the Japanese invasion ,after the war . The story ends in America as daughter Ruth finally learns of the history of her family and begins to understand the wonderful and strong women in her life! Another great read by Amy Tan
