Mom, Myke and I listened to some of this book on CD while driving to Fielding for Bradley's funeral. I listened to the rest of it while driving errands or at home working on projects. It was fun to listen to the author read her own work. This is an autobiographical work. Included are background information about several of her novels; a strained, but mended, relationship with her mother; the conflict in her home between faith and fate; her rise to fame; and many more varied and interesting aspects of her life. I have never read any of Tan's novels, always planned on it, but now I will definitely will. Mostly I want to read and watch the movie, The Joy Luck Club.
I rateThe Opposite of Fate a 5 out of 5. For an excellent review see Framed and Booked.
