To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Ok that's a corny thing to say. This writer's work is just that, to me. She takes these absolutely expansive, just enough "beyond" our current technologies to be (barely) science fiction, ideas... and throws in observations of human behavior (discontent, the concept of individualism as a blessing and a curse, social inequality, spiritual development, and even romantic love) and then she tells stories. Such stories. Americans are so insular, so obsessed with individualism - we appear to have lost all sense of being connected to each other. Thank you Kim Bo-young for allowing this work to be in English. I can only imagine the way her language expresses these ideas - I suspect that English, as a language, is challenging simply because of the ways culture/language intersect to make "reality." That is only one way her stories are expansive. Obviously, South Koreans find her work expansive, even without the challenges of culture/language/reality shape shifting. Right now, on our planet, we are reaping the results of divisiveness and entitlement between races, species, gender and class. Somehow we must learn to understand and cope with the "corruption" as it plays out in the most horrifying ways. Experiencing it as "horror" even illuminates my own "corruption" - yes?
