Saving Fish…

Time for another book, since I have read two lovely ones during our holiday. So, today I shall mostly be recommending…

Amy Tan‘s Saving Fish From Drowning.

A reviewer on Amazon describes it as a great comic drama, and I guess this sums it up nicely. A group of middle-class people from San Francisco travel through China and Burma, but not everything goes as smooth as planned: It all starts with Bibi, the organiser and tour guide, dying. When the group heads off with a replacement guide, things start going pear-shaped due to their own ignorant doing, and due to other circumstances.

A brilliant tale, comic and dramatic and something for the heart. Very lovingly and insightfully written, as all of Amy Tan’s books are. Highly, highly recommended!

  1. Yes well. A holiday is definitely something I look forward to, not too long to go, mine is coming up soon.Hope to make up for lost time then. Although I am not sure when I will catch up with all the books you recommended, but rest assured, I am ploughing through them one at a time. And you will definitely hear from me after the books are read. Thanks.

  2. You may have to take some time of work and send your daughter away, as there will be another book recommendation coming up soon…

    Let me know how you liked it, once you’ve read it.
