    Couldn't put it down!

    The flow of writing made it very hard to stop reading. Great story, enjoyed the different perspectives.

    A page turner

    Ng spins a wonderful tale that at first glance seems to focus on the mystery at hand, however the reader quickly learns that it's really about each of the five family members and their need to fit in and to be seen as special. It's about our dreams and what we think people want us to be and then finding out who we really are. A great read.

    Good read. I recommend.

    I enjoyed reading this book since reading is my main hobby. While the family experienced great difficulty in the area of "fitting in", it was not realistic to me that in the 70's, the period in which the story is being told, that there were so few families or people of Asian ethnicity in the town os State.

    Absolutely AMAZING!

    This book....where do I start?? Celeste Ng does an absolutely fantastic job of revealing to us the many hidden issues within a family- issues among sibling, between mother and father, and between parents and children. She helps us understand the family dynamics which lead to dysfunction and how this is passed on to our children. She does all this while keeping us on the edge of our seats with this compelling story. I could not put down this book! I was HOOKED from chapter 1. Just absolutely brilliant!
