The book was mainly told in the second person, using the viewpoints of 3-4 people. I found this method of storytelling very confusing as I didn't know who *I* was supposed to be be most of the time. It took me several pages of a new scene to figure out whose head I was in. Unlike The Help, which had multiple and very distinct first person narratives, the voices in Please Look After Mom all sounded the same. Since it's a translated book, perhaps a lot was lost in the process. Besides, I don't recall reading a book in second person before and it was just strange. It felt so accusatory, which could've been part of the reason it was told this way. The family members of this woman who became lost never paid much attention to her until after she was gone.
