  • Tan is a good teller of tales...

    May 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful language, characters you learn to care about
    Cons: Fans expecting more of the same from previous works may be surprised

    Summary: In many ways, _The Hundred Secret Senses_ is an interesting departure from Amy Tan's earlier two novels, which focus primarily on the mother-daughter relationship. I enjoyed the two earlier books, but I didn't care for this one at first. ... read more

  • One of Amy Tan's Great Novels

    Pros: Great story, written well,
    Cons: confusing at times

    Summary: The Hundred Secret Senses opened a new world for me. If you don't believe in ghosts, for the short time when you are reading this book, you will. It all seems so real, and it all fits together. It seems as though Amy Tan gets a tiny idea in her head and ... read more

    Pros: Amy Tan wrote it!
    Cons: It ended

    Summary: I am a huge fan of Amy Tan's, and this book was definitely up to the caliber of her previous novels. Similarly to The Kitchen God's Wife and The Joy Luck Club, this story deals with intricate relationships between family members, and the ... read more

    Pros: Amazingly written, great plot, wonderful read!
    Cons: Words can't do it justice!

    Summary: To be honest, prior to reading The Hundred Secret Senses I had never heard of Amy Tan. This means I didn't know I was in for another shining novel written by this brilliant author. This book is magnificent, the quality with which it is ... read more

  • Shimmering Storytelling

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Exciting, richly detailed, stunning story, particularly the audiobook.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: I highly recommend listening to the unabridged audiobook version of this story, for exactly that reason - it's a story, and Amy Tan is a first rate storyteller. If you haven't heard her read her own works, you're missing out. The intricate plots are ... read more

  • "Powerful as myth"

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: wonderfully written
    Cons: she hasn't written anything new.

    Summary: I took the title of my opinion right off one of her books because there's no other way to describe how great this Author is. The best books, in my opinion, are the ones that you can read a hundred times and still be mesmerized by the authors ... read more
