Although Margaret Cho is known to us as a comedian this audiobook is not funny. There are a few moments that are light, like when she protrays her mother, it does bring a smile, but by no means is this a comedy. It is actually just sad. Kind of pathetic in a way. Cho relates her life to the reader and as it is so desperate that one cannot help but feel sorry for her and yet you can't help but feel disgusted at the same time. It goes from a sad childhood to a sad adulthood and then some light at then end of tunnel towards the end.
I enjoyed this as much as the Glass Castle. An interesting story that was well written. I think having it read by the author who knew her grandmother certainly lends value to the voice of Lilly. This is one book I'l be recommending to others without hesitation.
...that the reason I didn't enjoy this book was because of the slow reading pace then I could fix it. I sped it up on my ipod and although it made the audio jerky it make the story much more enjoyable! This is a sweet story of love lost and a little glimpse into the tragedy of Japanese interment camps.
Can't say enough good about this book. I hope we get more from Kathryn Stockett.
