The story revolves around a beautiful, hand-made blanket, two sisters, and daughter of the elder sister. Each chapter goes back and forth between the characters and different timelines.

Full of facts about how a non-power loom (lat yat kan) and how the cotton is hand-washed and dyed. Given that I just came back from the village which business is around loom and fabric, I could relate and appreciate all of that. Until...

Suprisingly, I actually liked it!!!!
I liked it more than I should. Mainly for Shin Loon's story.
The younger generation tho, cannot relate :P. It's not up to how we really live :P.

I absolutely loved it while reading mother-daughter relationships in this book. It made my heart filled with warm and happy feelings. I love how all stories connect in the end but for Ma Kyay Mhone's story, I felt very much unsatisfied. (But it's okay, i guess. It'd be a thousand page long then). My favourite has to be Shin loon's story but I find other stories very much unsatisfying. Because Nay Yee's story has a lot of unnecessary plots and Loon Set's story felt like it needs more

As a reader who grew up reading Juu, I felt like her writing has evolved so have her ideas.

I liked the fact that she kept herself updated, with the internet, songs and social media. I’m more pleased that she’s kept her legacy of centralising a particular subject and presenting the thorough research about it, in this book, the hand-weaving.

The stories and the characters here aren’t as rich as in her previous novels. It didn’t have fairytale ending like most of her books.

What I like about this

Honestly, this book didn't pull me in as much as Juu's previous books did. But still, this one is still good.
It is mainly about 3 girls, different generations each with different blankets. I love how she tells us about weaving and things, and also how she describes the beauty of the blankets. BUT I feel like the characters aren't as strong as her other characters. They didn't come inside my heart. Well, most of them....there are lots of characters in there with lots of different love

I just finish the book , the author’s attempt to describe the local culture is very fascinating and many details are also written in very impressive way, but I give only 2 stars coz Spoilers

there is no either real plot or main characters which carry the story to make me keep on reading. There were like 3 generations of people and at least 5 or 6 stories of romance and also their part of life over 300 pages which resembles unfinished puzzles with missing pieces. I don’t usually mind reading

To be frank, it was a total let down. Juu happened to be one of a very few Burmese contemporary writers I like. I still have a handful of favourites from her former books. In this recent book, she failed to weave the different stories into one impeccable shawl. (Pun intended.) It doesn’t necessarily have to feature today’s trend to make the young readers feel inclusive, I guess. Whether or not the readers can be relatable with the materials isn’t important. The much more important point is to be ...more

i really enjoy reading this book except for no closures for my favorite character (loon sat) story and switching different characters in same paragraphs.
