Saving Fish From Drowning

Saving Fish from Drowning by Amy Tan

Pages: 474
Finished: July 15, 2007
Reason for Reading: Working on reading all of Amy Tan's books.
Rating: 5/5

First Sentence:

It was not my fault


Recommend: Highly, Yes! This book is a departure for Tan from the mother/daughter relationships explored in her previous novels. In Saving Fish from Drowning we are swept away into the jungles of Burma with a group of 12 American tourists whose characteristics range from the eccentric to the timid and everything in between. This novel has everything: travel, mystery, adventure and humour. To cap it all off there is a sense of the supernatural that is explored as the narrator of the story is in the mystifying position of having found herself recently killed at the beginning of our story. This book is definitely in my top five reads of the year.

  1. That sounds great! I haven't read Amy Tan in years, so I'll look forward to something new from her. SmallWorld
