25 starsWith the Winter Olympics being held in Pyeongchang South Korea I Thought It Would it would be to a work of Korean literature during the month of February and a collection of short stories from an author that is advertised as a modern Franz Kafka definitely sounded appealing I am very much fond of works that are outside of the box and absurdist as well so for its face value this collection looked like it was just what I was looking for Unfortunately I felt that this collection was mediocre at best While the concepts were great the characters were zero dimensional While giving little depth to these characters could be a strategy there was nothing that these characters had to offer that gave me the My Honorable Brother: A Thriller reader any interest to want to continueeading forwardThe stories in this collection wereRabbit s Tomb A man takes in an abandoned abbit and cares for it all while he is neglecting what he has found to be an insignificant job There was an interesting snippet about how and why abbit s are freuently abandoned as pets and how children are known for getting bored of what ever animal it is they get as a pet but specifically abbitsEvening Proposal Kim and his friend are preparing a funeral for a dying man all while he is preparing to turn
