's review

did not like it

Spoilers.. sort of.
I'm still slogging through this book.. about 100 pages left. I don't know if I can make it. Too many sex techniques, like way, way, way too many. (And I'm fond of sex information) Way too long.and it covers almost the same .location, same abusive husband/men, same mountain village and same mystical mountain pass. I'm so disappointed. I can walk that damn mountain pass in my sleep.
In general, I love Tan's books.. but nothing new was brought to The Valley of Amazement.

Beagle44 I was talking to a friend about this book and she mentioned a factoid I have never come upon - in some Christian sects, this story would represent a generational curse. Just sayin.
