Ated by a man harassing girls on mass transit; high school kids with their competing agendas and social dramas; a Hong Kong digital company courting an American venture capitalist; and the Triads market women and noodle shop proprietors who freuent N’s neighborhood of Sai Wan In the end it all comes together to tell us who caused Siu Man’s death and why and to ask in a world where online and offline dialogue has increasingly forgotten about the real people on the other end what the proper punishment i. This was my first time getting to know Asian crime fiction so I really had to get used to the somewhat messy looking style of this book for a while On the other hand I enjoyed books with a chaotic plot or seemingly without a plot at all so when I got into this book and realized it is the way it is and it is meant to be this choppy I soon was hookedI loved the emotional depth of Second Sister It was easy to let myself be taken in by the waves to be angry together with Nga Yee and to feel conflicted as she did further into the story I love how strong her emotions were and how she tried too hard to show her strengthOne thing I did not love is how a smart person like Nga Yee in a world and city where technology is so important was portrayed as totally digitally inept I see how this was used to make her look to the world she would discover with fresh eyes but to me as a reader it made her look not all there Especially at the start when N had to explain the most basic common things to her I hadn t been surprised if he had started explaining what a mouse was to her at some point I think this book would have started strongly if she was just a bit adept like most people are using message boards etc herself and realizing everything that could happen behind them It would also have stopped her having a bit of moral high ground for not using it while most readers of the book probably doThat said I very very much enjoyed Second Sister I received a free copy through Netgalley in return for an honest review
