    2. Reviewed at :Mama Kucing Meow : The Magpie Bridge by Liu HongReviewed on : 27 September 2010To me this book tried to imitate Amy Tan's Joy Luck Club but fail.There are flash back between present and past for Tie Mei, Jiao Mei and Barbara. Also trying the merge the western influence and eastern influence together. Instead of making the story flow nicely together, this confused me. The constant flash back and changing view point makes me unable to enjoy the "mood" of the story.

    3. It was different - quiet interesting at times - shows the strength of a women even when you are in a subservient moment.The decription of plants and flowers were quite interestuing at times as well.

    4. Trying way too hard to be "The Joy Luck Club", but ended up being disjointed and with characters that you just can't bring yourself to care about. Disappointing and hard to follow.

    5. the story about Three women, three generations, take on British and Chinese culture,and also tell about the experiences of a young woman who becomes pregnant in a foreign land hehehe
