The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly: A Novel - Sun-mi Hwang, Chi-Young Kim, Kazuko Nomoto

 I wasn't exactly enamoured with the book and had a bit of difficulty getting through the book.  It's not that I don't enjoy reading fables, its just that the meaning is sometimes lost on me and that I have a tendency for me to possibly to read too much into a story, which I possibly did in this instance.  

What I did like was that it was short and was a fairly quick read.  I wasn't particularly moved by the story and it felt like the language was stilted at times.
