This is my first Chang-Rae Lee reading and at first I thought it would definitely be a five. The book is so dark (which didn't bother me) and gave me a look at another war and it's aftermath. The characters were immensely interesting, but so much of the story was left out - to guess what had happened and fill in the blanks. The final page left me completely dangling - what happened to Hector - they were all incredibly broken people and perhaps that's why Lee wrote the story with the broken gaps where there wasn't any way to fill a life in.
