on such a full sea

by Chang-Rae Lee

It took me a while to get into this book. At first, I had so much trouble getting used to the author’s writing style – his narrator often asks questions which pull you, the reader, out of the narrative. But as the story progressed, so did my enjoyment.

The story revolves around Fan, a young woman living in a future Baltimore (B-Mor), a hard-working society of people who know little about the world outside their settlement and who, for the most part, are content to live their quiet, industrious lives. But then something happens which jettisons Fan from her insular life to the outside and we glimpse a world perhaps not far removed from our current society.

Interesting, certainly well-written,  if a bit unfulfilling in the end.
