A great quick read, covering everything you need to know about designing web forms. I use it all the time as a handy reference guide/checklist when designing forms. Highly recommended for anyone involved in designing data capture forms on websites.
As a eager fan of Emily Bronte's 'Wuthering Heights' and Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre', I'm confused why Anne isn't better known for this masterpiece. The story of how heroine Helen escapes from her drunk and abusive husband is still relevant today, and was perhaps was too before its time when it was written. If only I could pen such a masterpiece at just 28!
This was my first Amy Tan book, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but in the end it was worth the effort.
The first section of the book sets the foundations of the main character Ruth's life, which gives the background to the rest of the story. I found this bit slow, hard-going and nearly gave up. However - persevere! I'm glad I did because as soon as you reach the part where she is reading her Mother's story, it completely changes and is unputdownable.
Fans of Memoirs of a Geisha (like me) will like this book - the gentle pace and tone, the beautiful imagery - you'll find yourself immersed again in another culture, time and place.
