Did the plot pull you in or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book? The story definitely pulled me in and it was fascinating to read about Nana.
How realistic was the characterization? The characters seemed real and all actions were plausible.
How does the setting figure into the book? The settings were important, because the book was about tradition. I could see myself sitting at Nana's kitchen table.
Disclosure - I received a free copy of the book which did not affect my honest opinion.
