The book flowed nicely, however many of the characters could have gone deeper. I felt that just as soon as we were discovering the character the story was cut off. It seemed a bit contrived at times.

Forgotten Country, is a novel that holds many stories. It is the story of two sisters who struggle to define themselves in relationship to each other, their family, and the cultures they’ve inherited and have grown up in. It’s the story of a family straddling two countries, languages, cultures, histories—of how they navigate what to hold on to, what to reach for, and what to let go. It is the story of two countries—America and Korea—with their separate and linked histories of violence, separation and reformation. But largest and most ambitious in this novel, is the story of all of us. It is the story of our flawed human selves, our vast human longings, our capacity for love, cruelty, error and redemption. “Each life contains as much meaning as all of history,” Chung writes in Forgotten Country. And as the stories swirl, slamming against and into each other, we’re pulled between the historical and the individual; we engage in the epic human quest of finding a place to belong and to call our own.

Forgotten Country is stunning and poignant, gripping and beautiful. Every page is a gem, every chapter a treasure. Catherine Chung brilliantly and delicately holds the reader in the palm of her hand and delivers him or her to a place that looks so much like this one, but is in every way different.

Beautifully written. The spare, poignant prose touched my heart, The characters are well-drawn and the plot well defined. The author intertwines myth and magic into a very touching family dynamic. .

I really liked this book. Folk tales, mathematics, and interesting characters all work together to produce a fascinating family story. It is some of the best stuff I’ve read in a long time.
