Every once in a while you pick up a book that gets into your blood. It runs through you and it changes your perspective, or maybe it awakens something in you that was there all the time, but the author has managed to put words to something you otherwise couldn’t have articulated. Min Jin Lee describes something universal, and yet personal to characters in her story. And her story could easily describe the treatment of Blacks in America, or Jews in Germany pre and post WWII, or any minority in the world who are taking refuge in another country other than their home at a time when returning home isn’t a welcoming option either. She does it in such a way that a person who has never lived through such discrimination (like me) feels more enlightened afterwards and hopes to never treat anyone with such blind ignorance, and at the same time the story of motherhood and family, love and loss is so relatable, anyone will feel what the characters are feeling.

As the years go on in this sweeping family saga, the number of characters naturally increases, and it becomes hard to keep everyone straight. ( )

Sweeping multigenerational family saga about a Korean family's experience in Japan. This is not a part of history I know much about - and this story made me interested in learning more. The book follows one family, and the story jumps forward a few years for each new chapter. Felt like a series of related vignettes, but I was very engaged with the story and the characters. I really liked this one. ( )

The winter following Japan's invasion of Manchuria was a difficult one. Biting winds sheared through the small boarding house, and the women stuffed cotton in between the fabric layers of their garments. This thing called the Depression was found everywhere in the world, the lodgers said frequently during meals, repeating what they'd overheard from the men at the market who could read newspapers. Poor Americans were as hungry as the poor Russians and the poor Chinese. In the name of the Emperor, even ordinary Japanese went without. No doubt, the canny and the hardy survived that winter, but the shameful reports of children going to bed and not waking up, girls selling their innocence for a bowl of wheat noodles, and the elderly stealing away quietly to die so the young could eat were far too plentiful.

Pachinko is a multigenerational historical fiction
set in Korea and Japan spanning the years of 1910-1989, written by award-winning Korean author Min Jin Lee. The story begins in Yeongdo, Busan, in what is now South Korea in 1910, with Sunja Kim the daughter of crippled Hoonie and his wife Yangjin who work hard to run a guest house. When Sunja falls pregnant to a powerful businessman and discovers he is already married, her life seems doomed. One of the guests, Christian minister Pastor Isak, steps in and offers to marry Sunja and take her to Osaka where he is to be posted. The story follows the lives of Isak and Sunja, and his brother Joseph and wife Kyunghee in Japan where they experience the prejudice and hardships faced by the Koreans under Japanese rule (1910-1945). Isak and Sunja go on to have two sons, the studious Noa and easy-going Mosazu who works his way up to wealth by establishing a series of Pachinko parlours. Pachinko is an arcade type game with pins and steel balls, a popular form of legal gambling in Japan.

Pachinko is an epic saga following four generations of the family's fortunes and misfortunes. It is an engrossing tale, simply written but revealing and descriptive. My only complaint is it could have been significantly shorter as my attention drifted terribly in the final quarter. ( )
