Oh how I wish i could give 0 stars to this book. It just does not even deserve it. I read some of the reviews here about how brilliant this book is. I patiently read, read and read page after page. Not only it bored the hell out of me but the book lost its substance over time. Sonmi story was exciting before chapter 6 and it fall apart after that. The book is about more of its form than its stories altogether. I had such difficulty reading chapter 6 and by the time I finished with it, I forgot what had taken place earlier. No I am sorry even the idea of the book was so bad. Let me write a book with some stories with a musical do re mi fa sol la si do fashion and make it sound like a brilliant idea. I genuinely hated this book because I dedicated my time so much into it believing that it will get better but it did not and it failed me as a reader to appreciate this book. There is no brilliancy in wasting someone's time with the premise of presenting a book for its form but not it's substance.
