This book snared me from the beginning. Of all Amy Tan's novels, this is the one I have enjoyed the most. The central character is a ghost. In some other novels, this has seemed very contrived, but in this story it feels appropriate and believable. Ms. Tan also pokes a bit of fun at tourists, but in a loving way.

Another of Tam's wonderful books!

What I love about reading Amy Tam's books is I am not only entertained but I always learn so much about other cultures. I found Saving Fish from Drowning hard to put down. First of all the title was intriguing. All the characters were interesting and Ms. Tam developed each one so well that at the end of the book, I felt I had personally met them. I can't wait for her next book!
