Every generation fascinating,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Bonesetter's Daughter (Paperback)
I totally disagree with the reviewer from London who didn't find Ruth interesting. I identified with her totally - her love of words and language, her need to please others, her attempt to keep all the strands of her life in order, her guilt - her lack of understanding of her own character. I don't know if I'd want to meet her at a cocktail party but I don't go to them anyway - I certainly enjoyed reading about her and watching her story unfold. LuLing and Precious Auntie were fascinating characters but I couldn't identify with them. The book is wonderful, absorbing, sad but funny, interesting, never boring and I thoroughly recommend it.
