really liked it
Read in January, 2006

I had never fully imagined, though I have lived there, the chaos and hell of the Korean War -- especially as told through a young Korean male who loses his family and must escape being impressed or murdered by both armies. With her brilliant writing, Choi put me completely in his point of view. The portions of the book that deal with his life at an American university in the South are also wonderful.
