Amy Tan

I went through the list of author but I couldn't find Amy Tan but to me seems strange since every knows about her book the Joy Luck Club. I really like reading her books since I as a asian person feel a connection towards the characters. My favourite of all time is the Kitchen's God Wife.
I don't like her. All her books, the ones I've read anyway, are the same. A Chinese woman married to an American man finds out her mother had a secret life, blah blah blah. It was cute and touching in the first book I've read, but the others seemed to go the same way.

There is a lot of similarity. That said, I enjoyed The Bonesetter's Daughter because of the mother-daughter conflict and the picture of the mother declining mentally in old age. The ending was unrealistic, however.
I love The Joy Luck Club, but I think The Kitchen God's Wife is my favorite of all her books. I've never been able to make it through A Hundred Secret Senses, and I didn't care for the 2nd half of her latest.
I really like Amy Tans work. There is a very real depth to her characters, especially her female characters.
