Pachinko
Pachinko | Min Jin Lee
Busan, Korea, 1911: A club-footed, cleft-lipped youth marries a fifteen-year-old beauty. The couple have one child, their beloved girl Sunja. When Sunja falls pregnant by a married man, the family face ruin. But then Isak, a young Christian minister, offers her a chance of salvation: a new life in Japan as his wife. Following a man she barely knows to a country in which she has no friends, no home, no language, Sunja's salvation is just the beginning of her story. Through eight decades and four generations, Pachinko is an epic tale of family, identity, love, death and kimchi. 'If proof were needed that one family's story can be the story of the whole world, then Pachinko offers that proof ... a stunning achievement, full of heart, full of grace, full of truth' Erica Wagner.

I caught the virus that's going around my seminary, so I skipped my Body Sculpt workout this morning and went to my Old Testament class in the afternoon but definitely shouldn't have. I finished listening to this #audiobook while reclining in bed under a heated blanket drinking chamomile tea. Now it's 9 pm and I'm going to bed. 😂😷😴

Ran on a treadmill today for the first time! Kind of terrifying. 😂 Nice to have the option since there's still smoke in the air. Also kind of cool to run a perfectly steady pace for the whole run! As winter encroaches and the days get darker I might be relying on the treadmill some days. 2 hours left in this audiobook and I'm still loving every minute. ❤️ #audiorun #BFCr4 #BFC @BarbaraJean @Catlover23 @hermyknee

Had a very dark and smoky walk to and from the YMCA this morning for a 6 am exercise class. It was a relief to eat breakfast and watch the sunrise from my apartment, where the air quality is still okay. Can you see the haze of wildfire smoke in the air?

Listening to this audiobook while I get ready for the day, and then I'll be busy with schoolwork and class all day! Hopefully the smoke isn't so bad when I walk 20 min to class this afternoon. 🤞

16 hours for #24b4Monday so far! Listened on my way to church and on my way home, and got extra listening time because I had to wait for my bus for 40 minutes to get home. Not ideal with smoke in the air from the Kincade fire, but luckily the air is much better this afternoon than it was this morning. 👍 #readathon

Another day, another beautiful #audiorun along the jetty in Harbor, Oregon! Ran to the jetty, then did 30 sec fast/30 sec slow intervals back and forth along it. After that my cool down 1 mile run was all uphill! 😂 Felt so good to push myself running, and I'm loving this book, so it was great to get some more listening time in! 🏃‍♀️😊💪 #BFCr4 #BFC #RunningonReading

Morning #audiorun through town and along the jetty in beautiful Oregon. There was a nice long uphill involved which was fun! 😊🏃‍♀️ This audiobook hold just came in from the library last night - I was reading Pachinko physically in July but didn't take it with me when I moved. I meant to finish it as an ebook from my library but didn't have time, so now I'm finally revisiting it as an audiobook and loving it! 😍 #BFCr4 #RunningonReading #BFC

I can‘t imagine reading this 600+ page book. Listening to it at 1.75x still took over 10 hours! The first half was more interesting and engaging. Whereas the second half seemed to be a rushed “where are they now?” segment. This is a beautifully written book for fans of historical fiction. But too long for a more casual reader like myself.

The photo is a Pachinko Parlor, and the reason for the title. This was a beautifully written book about a Korean family which followed multi generations. I only wished that I had been able to attend my Book Club‘s discussion. Rushed to finish on time and then regrettably, was not able to attend. #allthefeels

#unpopularopinion I didn‘t connect with this book, and I‘m not sure if it‘s the writing, the translation or me. I‘ve a strong feeling that it‘s me. I put this book on hold 2 weeks ago, in the hope that I would want to know what happened with Sunja and start reading again, but that didn‘t happen. So the book is going back to the library and hopefully I‘ll be in the right mood to read it at an other time.

#womenreadwomen2019

GatheringBooks awww, too bad. 😢 What was it that made you abandon it? Thank you for joining though. 2mo
AnneCecilie @GatheringBooks it‘s hard to explain, but I can usually tell by the 1st p if I‘m reading a new favorite, a book I‘m going to love or an okay read. There‘s something in the writing I guess that just connects with me and draws me in. I gave this book 117 p and I didn‘t care what happens with the characters. It might have been the wrong time for an almost 600p book, that takes its time when I‘ve been going through a period where I‘m extremely tired (edited) 2mo
GatheringBooks @AnneCecilie ah, that happens sometimes. it took me a fair bit to get into this one as well. but once i sank my teeth into, everything just flowed. there are unexpected twists in the middle and the end that made me go 😱😱😱 :) Hopefully, the next few books will resonate better with you! 💕🧚🏼‍♀️📚 2mo
AnneCecilie @GatheringBooks chunksers usually take their time to develop the plot and when you‘re fighting sleep, that‘s just not a good combination. I hope to pick it up in the future, at a better time, and hopefully I‘ll enjoy it then. It‘s definitely a me-type book. 2mo

I was captivated by the history, four generations, the path from Korea to Japan, and what it means to be ethnic Korean in Japan. ...And, I‘ve now taken several virtual YouTube tours of pachinko parlors - I had no idea! ...This was nearly a 5* read for me, but a shiny tip dulled as new generations came to maturity and the stories of aging characters faded before I was ready to let them go.

Spanning more than a century, the novel follows a Korean woman living in Japan. Sunja is a fascinating character, full of strength and pride. I loved the first half of the book, but my interest waned as the focus shifted from Sunja. The final quarter of the book didn‘t work as well for me. I felt like the tone shifted and it was a completely different novel. I still loved it, but could have cut the final section.

This book takes us on a journey alongside a Sunja and her family, over 4 generations. It's the story of a Korean family as they travel to and expand their family in Japan throughout the 1900s, thru wars, poverty, and discrimination. I enjoyed how developed the characters are. They are complex and we see the humanity of what it's like to live poor as an outsider with limited opportunities. This book felt real. I definitely recommend it!

Ladies, if you want a purse that is ALL the things: durable, functional, compact, AND inexpensive, I figured out the trick - you have to google “man purse”. I ordered this thing from Amazon and it has 6 pockets plus 4 pouches, including one pocket in the back that makes an ideal book pocket! Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072PVTHR9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_sHztDbERA1818

hgrimes @LibrarianRyan Men get all the good stuff! It‘s not particularly “sexy” but I typically only need something formal enough to bring to work and this does the job! 3mo
LibrarianRyan @hgrimes My guy changes bags way more often than I do. And he has bags to go inside of bags. I last changed by handbag a few months ago because he bought me a cool dinosaur one, but before that i don't think i changed by handbag for 2 years. He changes if not weekly, then monthly. He has a ton so that helps, but sheesh. 3mo
hgrimes @LibrarianRyan Me too, I‘m so fussy about bags that the bottom of the bag basically needs to tear out before I‘m willing to consider a new one!I‘ve been looking for a while and finally got desperate and scoured Amazon. My husband on the other hand is uncool carny trash and has about a dozen fanny packs. 😂 3mo
LibrarianRyan @hgrimes I used to change my work bags frequently, but then Josh got me a storm trooper backpack which I have carried for almost 3 years, but its just so big. As for my purse, the smaller the better. I prefer a writstlet but my aunt bought this mini structured Michel Kors that she hated. I love it. But I need to get the handles fixed. My wallet however, I have had for 10 years. replacement time is coming but I can not find any i like. 3mo
hgrimes @LibrarianRyan Now I feel like a need a storm trooper backpack! 3mo
Zelma Ooh, you may have just changed my life. I hate purses and am a tote bag kind of gal. But I want pockets and more organization than a tote. 3mo
hgrimes @Zelma Why must totes with pockets be such a foreign concept? My bag this is replacing was tote-style with just one small zipper pouch. It required frustrating amounts of digging to find anything! I‘ve been on the hunt for a while for something more functional and have stumbled on a few I liked but they didn‘t pass the “Will it fit a book??” test. 3mo

I loved this novel! An epic chronicle of 3 generations of a Korean family living in Japan. It‘s fiction, but I learned sooo much about Korean and Japanese culture and history through it and how drastically it changed (and not changed) over the course of less than a century. The level of research and detail is astonishing. It‘s fiction, but so real at the same time. If culture and the humanities fascinate you, this is must read.
