Please Look After Mom


Please Look After MomPlease Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There were a lot of elements in this book that I enjoyed - the multiple perspectives, the commentary on generational disconnect, the thoughts about modernization of society, but there were a few literary devices used that made the book feel heavy handed to me. The unusual use of second person really threw me, a major turn off. I never really felt connected to any of the characters and that, in the end, is what gives it only three stars for me.
