In The Joy Luck Club, most of the transformations are accomplished through hope, understanding, and life circumstances. Hope, for example, allows people and objects to become more than they really are.


In The Joy Luck Club, friendship is critical, rocky, competitive, but always loyal. The women by turns seem to hate each other and can’t seem to live without each other.
