Herself the novel pieces together Rashomon style a life that appears ordinary but is anything but This is a mystery of one mother that reveals itself to be the mystery of all our mothers about her triumphs and disappointments and about who she is on her own terms separate from who she is to her family If you have ever been a daughter a son a husband or a mother Please Look After Mom is a revelation one that will bring tears to your eye. A beautiful story about the small but heroic sacrifices made by a Korean mother for her family and the lack of recognition her family gave her until the day she goes missing on the city subwayThe second person narratives while a little disconcerting at times allow each of her children her husband and finally the mother herself to share their own experience of her disappearance and the memories it recalls about their lives beforeThe mood is sombre reflective and would be heavy if not for the bitter sweet discoveries each one makes of their deeper love for their mother and their renewed desires to be better people to live up to her generosity and self giving Sadder moments are lifted up by others that are profound making the overall story a worthwhile read wwwGoodReadingGuidecom
