Excellent reviews from "masterful" to "elegant" with 12 superlatives in between!
The book, even though realistic fiction, is spellbinding . . . I find myself completely lost if Chang-Rae Lee's style of writing
well-written and thoughtful
Beautifully written book, with excellent character development. This is not a page-turner regarding fast-paced plot developments, but the craft of writing is superb. Allow yourself to slow down and think about what Lee is writing, and you will be richly rewarded. This novel says much about families, the "American Dream", immigrants and assimilation into American society, and much more. It is a book you will find yourself thinking about long after you have finished.
