Please Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin, translated from the Korean by Chi-Young Kim

Park So-nyo is the mother of four adult children. One day, she goes missing in a Seoul subway station. This story is told in four parts from four different perspectives. This made each part a little confusing until I figured out who exactly it was who was telling the story.

We find out family secrets and learn about who this mother was, and the kids' and husband's regrets when she goes missing.

My conclusion about this book: very good, but very sad.
