I have just read pgs 132-146 in my book Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan and i found this chapter to be very sad. I think I could really relate to what happened to them. I feel that maybe pity is insufficient sometimes.

One line that stood out for me was: "This made me angry- Blindingly Angry." I like the way how she got descriptive about the feeling she was going through. This is something that i do not often read about.. But it is something i can also relate to.

Another line that stood out for me was "What's the point there's no hope." Which made me pretty angry. I really had to disagree, even in the character's situation.

In conclusion I really think I can relate to a lot of the things in the book. So I very much look forward to reading the book to the end.
