Jake'i çok sevdim Başlangıçta neden çocuğu sevmediği konusunda biraz gizemliydi ama sonunda onu tanıdık ve onu sevdik Emma'ya göre birçok kez koşmayı düşündü, onunla savaştı ve karşılıklı cazibe, jake'e sırrını, onunla ilişkisi sırasında değişen farklı nedenlerle söylemedi. Tüm bunları neden yaptığını tamamen anlıyorum ama bu onun eylemlerinden rahatsız olmamı engellemedi
4 separate, yet interwining stories of 2nd generation Chinese-Americans' ambivalence over their immigrant mothers' traditionl values. Their relationship is a classic Kundera-style tale of identity, memory and inheritance. Through their mothers' lifes, they realize that had they been in their mothers' shoes they, too, would have had a similar mind. The irony was not lost to them; alas, having been brought up in America instead, they finally saw the sad inevitability of the differences between their mothers and them. it begs the question: how much of my identity belongs to me, and how much is the result of a collective inheritance from the society? as the world becomes more globalized and more people yearn for greener pastures abroad, this book serves well to remind immigrants of their racial/country baggages (their collective memories of their native countries) and how futile it is to ditch that and, at the same time, take up the memories of another country in a bid to gain acceptance.
I felt like I was reading someone's diary - interesting to them, but not to me!
I loved this book. I read it non-stop....couldn't seem to put it down. I combined fiction and non-fiction in way that I had never read before, and it was perfect. Entertaining and educational.
I enjoyed reading this book;Maybe not the best book I ever read but, I am a sucker for happy ending and totally corny love stories. As I was reading the book I just could not help but think about how close this book parallels with "City of Angels" movie with Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan. It was almost the same and I was hoping as I was reading the book that it would not have the same fate as the movie.
Yummy series. We find Hannah involved in another murder in her small town of Lake Eden, this time it's the High School Coach who bites it. His wife is the primary suspect and Hannah just plunges in to defend her especially since the victim died face down in her strawberry cheese cake. Recipes, Hannah's cat, her mother, her sister Andrea whom the reader warms to. Fun, no brainer mystery.
