I was excited to read this book, having heard such fantastic reviews. It was a fairly well-paced book, with a good plot, and real characters. Those with a korean background (like myself) will probably relate better to the characters and the mindsets of the different generations than someone who is not, but that doesn't mean it's not an enjoyable read for you guys. Lee does a great job of explaining the thought processes behind the different generations - I just think that you'd have to have experience/background to get the full impact.Overall...it was okay. Not a waste of time, but not one that I will be running around and forcing into people's faces either.
