I am so glad I picked this book this month. It is out of my comfort zone, but that is what I love about Book of the Month, it directs me to books I would never pick on my own. This book was charming and sweet. It was exactly what I needed this month and one of my favorite books this year.
I agree, the first half was enjoyable and I felt like he spent a lot of time setting up Rachel and her character. I don't know WHAT happened during the second half. I felt like the author kind of gave up with the ending and it felt very rushed, and not thought out. I just threw the book aside in annoyance at the end.
I really enjoyed it and was sad it ended. The characters where much more complicated and layered than I expected. I think they were very flawed while at the same time, very likeable. There was also a darkness I didn't expect. I would never have picked up this book on my own and it was lovely. Thanks for the review.
I really enjoyed this book. I feel the themes are timeless, relevant and cross-cultural. I know the history of Korea and I know it of Japan, but I have never considered it from the perspective of both cultures and a enjoyed a personal viewpoint. I really enjoyed going more in depth. I also felt a lot of empathy for the characters described.
I didn't like it either although I sense I am in the minority. I didn't like the characters. I felt Louise was obviously very careless and Adele (Rob) had her beat the whole time. I don't know why she didn't just call the police or something when Adele sent the text. Obviously after the car incident Adele was not a safe person. Louise had a son to care for and that should have been most important. Also, not a fan of the supernatural element. I felt it was a rip off of "The Skeleton Key". I really wished I had enjoyed it. I was looking forward to it.
I am a former jr. high school teacher and completely agree that her actions were inappropriate. I never have associated with any student over social media despite requests. I quickly learned how to hide accounts. I do feel that Cally was reaching out and there was a better way, yet also professional way she could have written her back.
