No hope

Please Look After Mom sounded good enough.  A Korean novel following a family that has lost their mother in a train station.  The story follows the grown children while they search for her and reevaluate their relationship with their mother.  A look into Korean life?  A family drama? A mystery?  I had hopes!

I ended up feeling so manipulated by the end of the book.  Instead of profoundness or at least a satisfying point, the novel copped out.  So aggravating!  3/10.

  1. This one looked so sad that I kept it off my tbr list. After reading your review I'm glad I did.
