Review:Thank You Random House for giving me the opportunity to read this amazing book, I’d like to start by saying that the cover could use some work, I really dislike it, but I’m not judging this book by it.
I felt that this book was compelling, and engaging, I’ve read it so fast, it is a debut novel by Yoojin and it starts in the best way.
I’ve loved the characters they, and I don’t want to spoil much about it. This story follows a women protest in Seoul, and on the third day of that protest everything changes.
It is so realistic and portraits so well Korea, with a dialogue so well structured for the 70’s. The writing was amazing.I have to say that Jisun is my favorite character, I highly recommend this book!
