I wasn't sure if I was going to like this story. It was confusing at first with the story of the present to the stories of the past. But as I read on the story got more interesting.
I was reminded of how the Chinese people do believe of the afterlife. Of becoming someone else, reborn. Something was said about their way of expressing true love.
Question that was brought up if you knew if you were going to die, what would you change?
Something that Olivia, and Kwan were learning and teaching each other
I love how the relationship between Libby-ah and Kwan grew or was reborn ed. Sisters in every way. Libby-ah learnt her history. As she puts a hand over a soft cover journal of a life with Kwan. "Why can't they make books like this today?"
I do believe the reason of this story is not because Kwan had yin eyes, but believing love never dies. If someone we love dies, they are just lost with ordinary senses. But are found with our hundred senses. This is the secret.
And this is exactly how I feel.
I give The Hundred Secret Senses
