Pressestimmen

'Tan's women sparkle and sing off the page. I longed for even more of Kwan - a gorgeously feisty portrait of a Chinese-American housewife, chattering as loudly about the mole on her husband's testicles as the price of pickle-turnips. Kwan is a breathtaking creation.' Julie Myerson, Independent on Sunday 'The sheer buoyancy of Tan's writing, the gutsy humour and the sheer verve of the narrative as it bounces along, from modern San Francisco to nineteenth-century China, is entrancing.' Iain Finlayson, Financial Times 'A wonderful story, told with wit, humour and enormous intelligence. Literary prizes and critical acclaim should be heaped on Amy Tan's head.' Marie Claire -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

Stunning reissue of an international bestseller, from the author of The Joy Luck Club and The Bonesetter's DaughterOlivia Yee is only five years old when Kwan, her older sister from China, comes to live with the family and turns her life upside down, bombarding her day and night with ghostly stories of strange ancestors from the world of Yin. Olivia just wants to lead a normal American life. For the next thirty years, Olivia endures visits from Kwan and her ghosts, who appear in the living world to offer advice on everything from restaurants to Olivia's failed marriage. But just when she cannot bear it any more, the revelations of a tragic family secret finally open her mind to the startling truths hidden in Kwan's unorthodox vision of the world. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

I love this book, I couldn't put it down ever since I first pick it up. Given by my mentor 2 years ago, she always tried to encourage me to read but I always thought it means nothing to me to read something that has nothing to do with me, but after reading this book I can relate to it with so many situations, I think I can start my own book!! Olivia the main character in this book whose also the narrator reminds me so much of myself when I read this book I thought I was actually seeing this book like a mirror to my life. This character that Amy Tan created remind me so much of myself when I was young. Kwan the other character whose Olivia's half sister came from China and Olivia was always ashame of her because Kwan is forever asking her questions because she was not familiar with the American cultures, plus her english was so bad. Kwan reminds me of my mom, whose always trying to speak english yet it sound so funny to me. Kwan has Yin eyes in this book, everynight she would talk to Yin people in the dark and she would tell Olivia many stories about her past life and what she believe in. Kwan tells a story about how she had come to this recent life to keep her promise to Olivia. Kwan has a belief that Olivia was a lady name Ms. Banner that she once met in her past life and She made a promise to Ms. Banner that she would bring her to reunited with her lover. Olivia inreturn never believe a word Kwan said. Kwan was always like a Joke to Olivia. Until one day Kwan took Olivia and her Ex-husband to China, Olivia began to realized that all those stories Kwan once told her was begining to come true, could it be that Kwan really have Yin eyes, and everything she said about her past life was true?Lesen Sie weiter... ›

When I began reading this book, I was a bit confused. I was expecting another book similar to _The Kitchen God's Wife_ or _The Joy Luck Club_ (both of which are very good, by the way). This book, however, is entirely different. Though Tan incorporates the same look into Chinese history, this story has more of a mystical twist. Past lives, yin people-- I felt like I was reading some sort of New Age book (though this is much better than any "new age" book I have ever read). Also, seeing how the American beliefs of Olivia contrast with Kwan's Chinese mindset is fascinating. Tan also addresses the issue of American cultural imperialism-- now China's original nature has been corrupted by American desires and capitalism. This is a book that tugs at your emotions, teaches you about Chinese culture, and opens your mind at the same time. HIGHLY recommended to anyone interested in Chinese culture or mystical topics.

Of all the books i've read so far in my life, this is definitely the best. The book starts from Olivia's childhood and goes on to adulthood, by the time i finished the book, i felt like i grew up with her. I was watching and feeling her impatience with her half sister Kwan. I shared her embarassment of her sister but as i grew up with Olivia, I also shared her guilt and sorrows for her sister Kwan. This book is not only a good story, it's a good lesson. It puts us through all kinds of emotions and brings us on a tour of China. Ever since I read the book, I couldn't stop thinking about it. All the feelings I shared with Olivia seemed to be implanted into my heart, no way to let go. This book is powerful, enchanting, down to earth, real and unforgettable. I think i'll forever be in love with this book.

The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan was a story about a girl named Olivia, who finds out before her father dies, has a half sister. So her half sister Kwan comes from China to join her family in Daly City. This book is different from Amy Tan's other work The Joy Luck Club, for it deals more between siblings, sister to sister. Also this book involves a scary side with ghosts and strange phenomenon. It starts of when Olivia is told by Kwan that she has a sixth sense, meaning that she can see dead people. Now if you have seen the newest movies out, you have probably seen a movie similar to this book called The Sixth Sense. They are like much similar to that each character deals with seeing dead people, but Amy Tan's book deals with how the character tries to interact with these dead people that she sees, and gets somewhat close to them. Olivia tells her mother and soon her relatives find out that Kwan has special powers that nobody believes and she is sent to a psychiatric ward, so to speak. But after a few years have gone by the story continues, and now they are all grown up. Kwan is now different from when she was younger and now acts more mature, but still has her supernatural abilities. It seemed cruel for her sister Olivia to send her to away, but Kwan still respects her. Their love together as sisters grow, but the supernatural situations continue. Kwan, who sees dead people, makes friends with the dead that she sees, and most of what goes on throughout the book deals with Kwan's "ghost stories that build the stories plot. But I felt this book was interesting, because I could relate to the city life situations, being in Daly City. Also after reading the first few chapters I could not put it down, that is why I recommend this book to other readers.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
