wait, I need to capitalize this WOWThis story took me through an emotional roller coaster that reminded me of all my personal shortcomings in the relationship department with my own family and my Mom The last time I was this wrecked was when my father passed away of cancer 2 years ago.
The story begins when the 70 year old mother of a family disappears from a Seoul train station The family, 5 grown children and her husband, is desperate to find her and yet, on the other hand, are blaming themselves and each other for not spending time or paying attention to her The book is divided into 4 major sections with 4 narrative voices the oldest daughter, the oldest son, the husband and the mom herself, with a shorter epilogue again narrated by the oldest daughter A second person narration is heavily used in the book.
in all e A beautiful story about the small but heroic sacrifices made by a Korean mother for her family, and the lack of recognition her family gave her until the day she goes missing on the city subway.
The second person narratives while a little disconcerting at times allow each of her children, her husband, and finally the mother herself to share their own experience of her disappearance, and the memories it recalls about their lives before.
The mood is sombre, reflective, and would be heavy if not for the bitter sweet discoveries each one makes of their deeper love for their mother, and their renewed desires to be better people to live up to her generosity and self giving Sadder moments are lifted up by others that are profound, making the overall story a worthwhile read www.
com DNF at 50% Honestly just couldn t get into it

Powerful and unforgettable I actually believe this book has changed me or at least opened my eyes to my own level of participation and shortcomings in my relationships.
This amazing story will rip you to shreds and force you to face difficult questions about your own relationships not just with your mom but with all those people who claim a piece of your life and heart Who are these people who love me so much Why do I take their very existence for granted Do any of these people really know me These are hard questions, and this short book is a warning to you to ask these questions when you still have a chance to answer them You might think you have a strong and open relationship with your mom, dad, sister, spouse, etc.
, but you can always do This story makes you realize that you should take the time to know those you love This is not the sort of book I read, and I d be lying if I said the Korean name on the cover didn t play a part in getting me to crack the spine I tend to give passes to stories I think are lame when they come from Asian countries, it s just where my own cultural preferences lie Even still the story, about a family dealing with the disappearance of their mother in a Seoul subway station, would normally have been a little too old lady book club for me But one detail of the plot, a minor point highlighted on the jacket description, pulled me in as the family gathers to make missing person flyers to distribute, the missing mother s children realize they have no recent photos of her How heartbreaking is that
