After the death of their mother U mi and her little brother U il are shuttled between relatives until their father retrieves them He puts the children in the care of a young stepmother fresh from a brothel who looks after them during the week while he works at a remote building site But the stepmother is soon drive. I am sure this little South Korean novel has literary merit but it really was not for me It was written in a style that reminds me of the books I had to read for school Therefore it felt too much like a chore to read it Luckily it was only short otherwise I would likely not have finished itI did not like the characters or the story itself Some grim things happened that I really did not want to read about I understand what the author was trying to show highlighting the effects the economic change in South Korea had on the lives of the poor but I really disliked the style For me it did not delve deep enough and the story never felt uite engaging enough I understand why it had a child narrator but it just did not work for meI do want reiterate that this is a matter of personal taste and this is by no means a bad novel It just really did not sit well with me

새 By Oh Jung-hN away by the father's violent possessiveness Depressed the father no longer returns for his weekend visits and the children are left to fend for themselves U mi attempts to care for U il with help from neighbours but her despair leads her to mimic her father's behaviour abusing the one person closest to her A beaut. 35 stars rounded up I really like how this starts out rather nice almost normal with a not that very fortunate family but still just another childhood book only Korean this time as told through the eyes of a small girl Life is hard and all that Then it just spirals into complete ruin But without the melodrama The same disengaged monotonous voice is used throughout the book no matter what happens with some unfortunate translation uirks that may convey an annoying overuse of demonstrative pronouns in the original or add it to the Norwegian unnecessarily The effect of this weird narrative is creepy Way scarier than that English language horror book I just read actually
