Casey Han is a young Korean-American woman with severe family issues and a recent Princeton graduate whose life is pretty much out of control throughout. One of the strongest, most consistently drawn characters this reader has encountered in recent fiction, one easily finds oneself hoping she will get her life figured out before she flat out loses it. I found it hard to put this one down. At close to 600 pages, that can be good news and bad. Good news, because it keeps the reader engaged in the story. Bad news because one tends to miss sleep trying to get to a good stopping place! The only problem I had with this was that the ending seemed weak compared to the rest of the book. Each of the main characters underwent a completely believable metamorphosis that flowed naturally out of the narrative. Ms Lee has delivered an exceptional work and a very satisfying read.
