  "Please Look After Mom" by zumbalover (see profile) 11/06/11

Although it was a little difficult to follow at times in the end it was a very thought-provoking book. It made you think about how women in certain cultures and times in history have had to give up everything for their family. Usually the family not ever knowing the true being of the mom. There were some loose ends that weren't tied up at the end. I wished they were.

 
  "LIT - Lost In Translation?" by hlarson (see profile) 05/21/12

Perhaps the story was easier to follow in Korean than in English. For me the story dragged and was occasionally both repetitive and confusing. The author's use of the second person had me wondering at times who was speaking to whom. Others in our book club felt the same. Interestly the books we dislike often lead to our more lengthy and engaging conversations, as did this one.
