i heard a lot of good things about this book, sadly it didn't work for me. i'll be honest, the first half is pretty boring and the other half is just okay. and because i'm not that familiar with Korean food, i often just skim through every mention of it, which is quite a lot. overall, this book just wasn't for me, didn't resonate with me, just an okay book. i really want to like this, but... sorry.

If I could give this book 10 stars I would! It was so deeply emotional, and gut-wrenchingly heart warming. It gives you a deep sense of appreciation for culture, and the importance of loving those near to you while they’re still here.

A love letter to the complicated relationship between mother and child, Crying in H Mart navigates the grief of losing loved ones and the grief of being disconnected from your culture. Zauner has an incredible and strong voice, ripe with unique observations and striking linguistic choices. And tracing these emotion and relationships through food? Brilliant. 

Now I'm going to listen to Japanese Breakfast's Psychopomp.

What a beautiful memoir and testament to Zauner’s mother’s life. As a fellow mixed-race individual, Zauner’s desire to connect to her Korean heritage is so relatable. It was also so wonderful to hear the book spoken by the author herself.
