The book starts off so wonderfully, drawing you in and making you want to see more of the Kim family. Unfortunately, the lovely writing and intriguing storyline didn't last very long, and started to wane after about 200 pages. The writing style changed so much that it became a pain to read, and all the skipping ahead and lack of character development really became tiring. I really hoped it would improve and tried to keep going, but it just wasn't worth it, so I quit. Very disappointing after such a strong start.
