A Bookleaves bookclub selection. We tore it to pieces. Although I think everyone enjoyed the quick nature, and it was a good suspense, crime mystery, we really couldn’t see what the hoopla was. Also, at least to this quick witted group of feisty ladies, it seemed like the author was on a self-aggrandizing male-fantasy.
Anyone who has taught in Korea will understand why I found this title irresistible. Rock, Paper, Scissors is the ubiquitous problem solver for any conflict between students.

This was a yet another fantastic historical fiction by Ghosh. Outlandish play with language, people bucking the chains of society way ahead of their time, and the chains people purposefully put on to get out of their current situation.
I loved this book. I read it in one sitting at my favorite tea shop in Bupyeong, which I hadn’t gone to in ages. Chinese Pour tea, nice scenery, and a novel that couldn’t be more about the elusive nature of communication.
Another Bookleaves choice. Another surprising winner.

I’m teaching a fantastic reading class for our advanced students. This was book #1, and I was estatic to revisit the book version of a cartoon I loved as a kid.
