I like Sui Sin Far a lot more than Maxine Hong Kingston or Amy Tan. I'm glad someone finally portrayed Asians correctly. You can always count on this important author.

I was super excited when I got the book I ordered. I ordered it on a Friday and received it on a Monday. !! Perfect timing too! I thought it was going to take a long time to get it, but surprisingly it didnt take long at all. I ordered another book like 2 weeks ago, and I still havent received it :(
Overall I was really happy with my product. It was in super great condition and it had notes in it too that I could go off by because they were pretty accurate!

The stories portray Chinese Americans as real people during the turn of the century. At that time, most of the Chinese were seen as one-dimensional. The author gave them emotions and feelings, yet did not portray them in a positive light. I give her credit for being these characters into the mainstream, but I think she did a dis-service by making them sound sterotypical and backward. The stories themselves are entertaining, but not terribly memorable.

This ITEM never came. I was dissatisfied with this. I had to give it one star anyway. I didn't want to though.
