The Island of Sea Women

Lisa See’s The Island of Sea Women taught me about something I knew nothing about: Korean all-female diving collectives. The story, while interesting, was too slow for me. I enjoyed the characters and thought the plot and the history were interesting, but it got bogged down and took me too long to get through. She could have cut 50-100 pages and been both more efficient and, to me, more engaging. Overall, while I did like this one, I didn’t love it enough to recommend. Hoping my next choice is better…
