    Great story......I couldn’t put it down.

    I loved this book. I found it to be so interesting because these women actually did this to make a living for their family. I was unfamiliar with a lot of the history of Korea. This book was heart breaking and uplifting. The human spirit is really something else. I have also read one of her other books...THE TEA GIRL OF HUMMINGBIRD LANE. Both of these books are beautiful stories.

    Poignant, absorbing, and impactful!

    The Island of Sea Women is a heart-wrenching, pensive tale that sweeps you into a country ravaged by Japanese Colonialism, WWII invasion, American occupation, rebellion, oppression, political upheaval, and economic instability. The story is set on Jeju Island from the 1930s to present day and is a generational tale of friendship, grief, sorrow, guilt, history, family, culture, courage, loss, hope, sisterhood, as well as the responsibilities, life, and indomitable spirit of the haenyeo. The prose is vivid and eloquent. The characters are diligent, resilient, brave, and authentic. And the plot is a skillfully crafted read that moves seamlessly from past to present as it unravels all the personalities, struggles, atrocities, dangers, motivations, and complex relationships within it. The Island of Sea Women is truly a perfect blend of historical facts, compelling fiction, and palpable emotion. It’s a beautifully depicted, fascinating, heartbreaking, unforgettable tale that does a remarkable job of highlighting See’s incredible knowledge and passion for a time and place that is often unknown, forgotten or overlooked.

    The Island of Sea Women

    I enjoyed Ms See's narrative on the people,history and culture of Korea. The description of the life and work of the diving ladies was interesting and absorbing.

    Great read but...

    Great read but I think it was too long at points. Lisa See clearly did a lot of research for this book and did an excellent job writing it. However, at times it felt too marred in description and the book tried to provide too much history of the time rather than concentrating on the story that was being told.
