The Difference between the Movie and the Book. Ap by savitrikumari Leave a comment. When I watched The Joy Luck Club movie after reading the book, I realized that it is very hard to make a movie based on a novel.

In the book the writers can explain about the characters, but they have to be very concise in the movie. The Joy Luck Club was my first book of Amy Tan's I read. It tells of four mothers and their daughters in various life situations.

Each character is very well developed. Amy writes the way a Chinese mother from China would speak, and I found it highly entertaining and /5(11).

The Joy Luck Club Introduction If there's one thing we've learned from a lifetime spent consuming media about that magical mama-daughter bond, it's that mom + baby girl = friction. The fact that mothers and daughters annoy, argue with, and fight with each other but still manage to love each other pretty much more than anything in the world is.

Like earlier chapters, this one also deals with the theme of sacrifice and filial obligations. Earlier, An-mei's mother sacrificially mutilated herself for her mother; here, Lindo submits her life to her parents' plans for her future: "I once sacrificed my life to keep my parents' promise," the chapter begins.

United in shared unspeakable loss and hope, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club. With wit and sensitivity, Amy Tan’s debut novel—now widely regarded as a modern classic—examines the sometimes painful, often tender, and always deep connection between these four women and their American-born daughters/5().

Feeling unfulfilled, she found her calling in fiction writing. Throughout The Joy Luck Club, issues of translation and storytelling emerge continually. The book explores the question of whether a story serves as a place where “losses in translation” become concentrated and magnified, or whether a story might function more like a stepping-stone or bridge, connecting mothers and daughters across the intergenerational and intercultural chasm that.

When it matters, the Joy Luck Club will step up to take care of its own. "Auntie, Uncle," I say, repeatedly, nodding to each person there. I have always called these old family friends Auntie and Uncle.
