Description

Yeongdo, Korea - 1911. In a small fishing village on the banks of the East Sea, a club-footed, cleft-lipped man marries a 15-year-old girl. The couple have one child: their beloved daughter, Sunja. 

When Sunja falls pregnant by a married yakuza, the family face ruin. But then, Isak, a Christian minister, offers her a chance of salvation: a new life in Japan as his wife. Following a man she barely knows to a hostile country in which she has no friends and no home, and whose language she cannot speak, Sunja's salvation is just the beginning of her story.

Bring on the corn

Instead of stars some books should be rated in corn. This is one of those. I'd give it five bowls. Corn by the shovel full. Want to be miserable for 18 hours and 14 minutes? Then this is the book for you. A lightweight story that should have been one third the length. The metaphors used throughout are lamentable to say the least. Amazed that it was published in the first place. 18 hours and 14 minutes of your life you'll never get back. Get a Murakami novel instead.

Hopeful and Despairing!

The novel reflects the resilience of the human spirit and of the role of family to sustain the individual person. I almost stopped reading after Noah's suicide but life goes on. We navigate life despite the evil and bigotry that surrounds us because there is also decency and compassion even if it is limited to our small circles.

Wunderbare Familiengeschichte

Dieses Hörbuch gehört zu den Perlen. Die Geschichte einer koreanischen Familie in Japan über mehrere Generationen hat mich tief berührt. Rassismus gibt es leider in jeder Gesellschaft. Und er beruht überall auf ungerechten und unberechtigten Vorurteilen. Trotz der vielen traurigen Ereignisse gibt die Geschichte auch viel Hoffnung. Unbedingt empfehlenswert!

Fantastic from beginning to end

The story draws you in and the speaker is just wonderful. I could not put this one down, I've binged it over the past two weeks and it brought me a lot of joy and feels. I can highly recommend it

In love, a willing learner

This story is absolutely a must. I can’t say it any different. I will listen to it again, and then again because I don’t think you can grasp the full meaning and intention of the book in just one setting. The Korean emotions and the history that is the frame for this family’s story is just as exciting as the fate of each of the characters. I feel like the book gave me a deeper understanding of why and how Korea and the situation with Japan is as it is right now and a deeper look into the, for Europeans, so well hidden thoughts of Korean culture and people.

Excellent fictional history novel

Pachinko is a great story, telling us about the fate of a Korean family in several generations. Not only do you learn about important historical events like the Korean occupation, world war 2 in Japan and the division of Korea from a personal point of view, you also get deeply involved with the characters. The audio book is excellent, the voice actor fits perfectly and pronounces all languages (as far as I can tell) used in the book well.
