    MOBI Min Jin Lee Ñ Pachinko eBook â Ñ pachinko download, Pachinko PDFAlright after thinking about this one for the last 24 hours or so I think I've figured out how to articulate what I didn't like about itBut first I want to start with the stuff I did really enjoy The book taught me a lot about the dynamic between Koreans Japanese especially in the early to mid 20th century I had no idea about any of the historical context within which this book was set And I found learning about it especially as the author traced these themes and historical elements through the lives of her main characters to be a fascinating experience and probably one of the most educational novels I've read in a while The attention to detail was also excellent I felt like the author created really grounded settings for the characters and I enjoyed seeing how she moved

    MOBI Min Jin Lee Ñ Pachinko eBook â Ñ pachinko download, Pachinko PDF History has failed us but no matter Look I get it A lot of people won't be interested in this book because they have no idea what pachinko means and what exactly is going on with that cover anyway? We are highly susceptible to marketing techniues and the cover and title give us pretty much nothing But hear me out for a minute because this book is really goodThis is a historical family saga set in Korea and Japan throughout the 20th century It follows four generations of a Korean family through the political turmoil of Japanese colonization the hardship of wartimes seeking a new and better life in Japan and witnessing the home they left become divided into two countries they ha

    MOBI Min Jin Lee Ñ Pachinko eBook â Ñ pachinko download, Pachinko PDFWhat a marvelous deeply engrossing novel about four generations of a Korean family in Japan There was a lot of story here and a lot of history of which I was woefully ignorant and it is all rendered in impeccable prose with a touch of steeliness Toward the end of the novel things started to feel a bit rushed not enough time with the characters And certain folks just fell away but such is the nature of a sprawling multi generational novel I read this in one day because I simply could not put it down By far one of the best books I've read this year

    MOBI Min Jin Lee Ñ Pachinko eBook â Ñ pachinko download, Pachinko PDFJust having finished this behemoth in the last hour I want to put a disclaimer first That reading this over a longer period of time than I would usually read a book even of this length probably made me MORE analytic than for my usual review Or reaction More critical Because I truly wanted to give it a higher star value I really did But I cannot So don't be scared away from reading it because I am specific or amused for some of the tangents she took Take it with a grain of salt Especially if you are not the kind of reader that is bothered by vastly changing style of approach within one book I amThe first third of this book is nearly a 5 star perfection for character development place reality era feel and boding wars of surround In cultural mix and clash in politico straining for the working day existence in Korea Busan under Japanese governmental domination Isak

    MOBI Min Jin Lee Ñ Pachinko eBook â Ñ pachinko download, Pachinko PDFOne of the things I like about reading well written historical fiction is that it can take me to another time and place and can be a profound learning experience I knew close to nothing about the Japanese occupation of Korea from 1910 through WWII Last year I read Tiger Pelt which introduced me to this time in Korea which was horrific in so many ways for the Koreans While this novel begins in a village in Korea most of the story takes place in various places in Japan but this is a Korean story about four generations of a family spanning decades I found myself easily engaged because I was so taken with the strength of this family who are living a difficult life of hard work barely keeping a roof over their heads and meager food on the table Hoonie a young man with physical disabilities finds happiness in an arranged marriage to Yanglin A daughter Sunja is born bringing joy then heartache It is Sunja's story that takes us to Japan and expands into a family saga of her children a

    MOBI Min Jin Lee Ñ Pachinko eBook â Ñ pachinko download, Pachinko PDF ‘living every day in the presence of those who refuse to acknowledge your humanity takes great courage’ wow i am speechless this story is a bittersweet portrait of family the sacrifices that must be made for those we love and the resilience to see through the outcomes of our choices i am so moved by this storyacross four generations two opposing nations war and constant struggle a family lived a family lost a family learned and a family loved min jin lee has so beautifully and somewhat painfully crafted a novel that has taught me so much through their intertwining personal and political circumstances i have come to care for this family i know that many readers could not get attached to the writing style of this book but all i could see was the intention there is so much purpose behind every word every sentence i thought the straightforward nature of the writing was needed there is no sugarcoating the trials koreans faced in japan and so

    MOBI Min Jin Lee Ñ Pachinko eBook â Ñ pachinko download, Pachinko PDFDespite this being a 480 pg mini brick of a book I absolutely flew through Pachinko on two commutes and a night It's a sweeping multi generational epic of a Korean family and we follow their collective and individual rises and falls triumphs and failures in 19010 1930 in Korea under Japanese occupation and in Japan from 1930 1989 as expatriates and Zainichi Koreans The characters are memorable well drawn and their circumstances and hurdles extremely compelling from family shame of out of wedlock pregnancy to hunger and pride and war time privations Min Jin Lee does a phenomenal j

    MOBI Min Jin Lee Ñ Pachinko eBook â Ñ pachinko download, Pachinko PDFIn the sweeping and monolithic Pachinko Min Jin Lee documents four generations of a Korean family in Japan from 1910 to 1989 First conceived in 1989 Lee worked on this novel for over 25 years and what a masterpiece she has to show for all her work Only really comparable in scope to Zola's Rougon Macuart cycle Pachinko is an education as well as a flawlessly crafted story It theorises on an ugly aspect of Japanese society and the people who struggle against this open prejudiceWhat I know about the history of Koreans in Japan wouldn't fill the back of a postage stamp To call my knowledge of the culture and politics of east Asia in the 2oth century a blindspot would be offensive to
