5.0 out of 5 stars A story about Chinese women...but ultimately about friendship, 14 April 2010
This review is from: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (Paperback)
After reading this book, I immediately gave it to my best friend to read. Although it is about two Chinese women and the hardships they faced in their lives, ultimately it is about friendship and the unspoken misunderstandings in relationships that can cause them to collapse.

The way the two women communicate by writing on a fan is a beautiful idea, and it got me and my friend writing letters to one another, just because we realised how wonderful it would to have something to look back on in our old age! Although, hopefully we will have a happier time than the two main characters of the book. Their lives are tragic, and sadly their friendship starts wonderfully but ends rather sadly. Read it, then ring up your old buddies who you haven't talked to for a long time and see how they are. You don't want to end up like these two women with misunderstandings that cause anger and resentment till it is too late.
