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.

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!

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.
