Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  A million-plus-copy best seller in Korea--a magnificent English-language debut poised to become an international sensation--this is the stunning, deeply moving story of a family's search for their mother, who goes missing one afternoon amid the crowds of the Seoul Station subway. Told through the piercing voices and urgent perspectives of a daughter, son, husband, and mother, Please Look After Mom is at once an authentic picture of contemporary life in Korea and a universal story of family love. You will never think of your mother the same way again after you read this book.

Love this book!!! It shows how far a mother's love will go for her children. This book made me wonder what my mother was like outside her role as "Mom" and this book made me appreciate my mother even more!!!
