The Mermaid from Jeju by Sumi Hahn

Hey Sumi! I will give you 4 out of 5 birds for The Mermaid from Jeju. Last year I read The Island of Sea Women and fell in love with the superhuman women divers. So when I saw that there was another book on Netgalley, I jumped at the opportunity. I listened to the audiobook courtesy of Netgalley and really enjoyed the book until the last 25% of the book. It switches from a female narrator to a male and the story shifts too. I thought it was clever and beautifully written, but the later half didn’t hold my interest as much. Overall it was still a fun listen to clench my want for more of this culture. 

Thanks for the free listen Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
