Pachinko Boek Site Index Video'Pachinko' author Min Jin Lee answers your questions
Lee's profound novel of losses and gains explored through the social and cultural implications of pachinko-parlor owners and users is shaped by impeccable research, meticulous plotting, and empathic perception.
Gracefully written and dotted with memorable images, evocative of the pace and time, it's a page-turning panorama of one family's path through suffering to prosperity in 20th-century Japan.
Pachinko is about outsiders, minorities and the politically disenfranchised. But it is so much more besides. Each time the novel seems to find its locus - Japan's colonization of Korea, World War II as experienced in East Asia, Christianity, family, love, the changing role of women - it becomes something else.
It becomes even more than it was. Pachinko A Korean version of Jane Smiley or Anne Tyler in being a novel following the fortunes of one family across the generations.
This was a classic case of judging a book by its cover. I hadn't heard of the novel before it appeared on our shelves, and I was so intrigued by it's beautiful design that I had to find out more.

After Sunja arrives in Osaka, her modest life is underscored when she enters what is only the second restaurant of her life. My blessing.
The numerous shifts are occasionally jolting, but what is gained is a compassionate, clear gaze at the chaotic landscape of life itself.

They have three sons, but only one, Hoonie, with a cleft lip and twisted foot, survives to adulthood. Because of his deformities, Hoonie is considered ineligible for marriage.
When he is 27, Japan annexes Korea and many families are left destitute and lacking food. Due to their prudent habits, Hoonie's family's situation is comparatively more stable, and a matchmaker arranges a marriage between Hoonie and Yangjin, the daughter of a poor farmer who had lost everything in the colonized land.
Hoonie and Yangjin eventually take over the lodging house. In the mid s, Yangjin and Hoonie have a daughter named Sunja. After her thirteenth birthday, she is raised solely by her mother Yangjin, her father Hoonie dying from tuberculosis.
When Sunja is sixteen, she is pursued by a wealthy fishbroker, Koh Hansu. Sunja becomes pregnant, after which Hansu reveals that he is already married but intends to keep her as his mistress.
Ashamed, Sunja reveals the truth to her mother, who eventually confesses it to one of their lodgers, a Christian minister suffering from tuberculosis.
Baek Isak, the minister, believes he will die soon due to his many illnesses, and decides to marry Sunja to give her child a name and to give meaning to his life.
Sunja agrees to the plan and marries Isak, traveling with him to Osaka to live with Isak's brother and his wife. In Osaka, Sunja is shocked to learn that Koreans are treated poorly and are forced to live in a small ghetto and are only hired for menial jobs.
Sunja's brother-in-law, Yoseb, insists on supporting the entire household on his own salary, but Sunja and her sister-in-law Kyunghee come to learn he is in heavy debt due to paying for Sunja and Isak's passage to Osaka.
To pay for the cost, Sunja sells a watch given to her by Hansu. As time goes on, Sunja gives birth to her son Noa and then to a second son she conceives with Isak, Mozasu.
While Noa physically resembles Hansu, he is similar in personality to Isak, and seeks a quiet life of learning, reading and academia.
Shortly after Mozasu is born, Isak is taken prisoner when a member of his church is caught reciting the Lord's Prayer when they were supposed to be worshiping the emperor.
Despite Yoseb's resistance, Sunja begins to work in the market, selling kimchi that she and Kyunghee make. Their small business goes well, but as Japan enters the Second World War and ingredients grow scarce, they struggle to make money.
Sunja is eventually approached by the owner of a restaurant, Kim Changho, who pays her and Kyunghee to make kimchi in his restaurant, providing them with financial security.
A dying Isak is eventually released from prison, and he is able to briefly reunite with his family. A few years later, on the eve of the restaurant's closure, Sunja is approached by Hansu, who reveals that he is the actual owner of the restaurant and has been manipulating her family for years, having tracked Sunja down after she sold her watch.
He arranges for her to spend the rest of the war in the countryside with Kyunghee and her children, and for Yoseb to wait the rest of the war out working at a factory in Nagasaki.
It becomes even more than it was" - New York Times Pachinko is relevant far beyond Japan and Korea, but relates to migration and immigration as a whole.
Rating 3. I would get it from the library and return it. But it was a National Book Award finalist, so it should be good. My library got the audio and I had to wait months to get it, so it should be good.
It's historical fiction and I love that, so it should be good. Don't get me wrong, I liked it, but I had many issues with it.
Pachinko tells the story of several generations of one Korean family. You first start out, learning about this family and Rating 3. You first start out, learning about this family and how they live in Korea.
But then, due to war, they are moved to Japan. Eventually we learn of Sunja, a young peasant girl, the daughter of a poor family who runs a boarding house for fishermen.
She becomes pregnant at a very early age, which is scandalous. But one of the boarders who knew of her father, marries her and takes her to Japan.
You learn about her history and her children and children's children. This is one family sweeping saga that spans years. You learn the strife of Koreans living in Japan, the racism that they faced, assimilating into Japanese culture, the customs and ways of the Japanese.
That part I loved hearing about. I loved hearing about Korea and the food, it took me back to a trip that I had to Korea. Then, we switched to Japan, which I just adore.
You learn of the Pachinko parlors as one family member runs. Oh the pachinko parlors, they were absolutely insane.
Think Vegas amplified, with lots of wild colors, and high vibe atmosphere. I really enjoyed being able to think back to my time there.
But the book was too long, it often jumped around. I really enjoyed learning about Sunja, her parents, and her children.
But when her children, got older, it seemed to be all over the place. It cover many topics such as racism, war, strife, suicide, gay men, loose women, the Yakuza, AIDS, and more.
I think this book could have been trimmed down quite a bit. I was really loving it, thinking it might be a 5 star read, but then it seems to throw in so many topics, and some were glossed over, or I did not get the resolution I desired.
Overall, glad I read this one. I ultimately picked it up for my Japanese reading challenge. Though focused on Koreans, much of the book takes place in Japan.
So this was a perfect fit for the challenge. View all 54 comments. This book blew me away. It was powerful, heart breaking, educational and inspiring.

Truth be told, we then become the receptors marked by the shadows of others upon us Min Jin Lee begins her story in in Yeongdo, Busan, Korea with Hoonie, plagued by physical impairments, and his wife who live in a small fishing village.
These are the first stones in this multigenerational family mosaic. After many miscarriages and infant deaths, they are overjoyed at the birth of a healthy daughter We are deemed to be the directors of our lives and its consequences.
After many miscarriages and infant deaths, they are overjoyed at the birth of a healthy daughter, Sunja. Sunja thrives with her parents' love and the tradition of hard work within their small boardinghouse.
She becomes acquainted with an attractive man, Hansu, from the village and meets him in a secluded area. He is smitten with Sunja. It is now that Sunja's stone in the mosaic will take a curved turn.
She becomes pregnant and the married Hansu cannot take this relationship further. A benevolent minister, suffering from tuberculosis, offers to marry Sunja, but in doing so, the couple must move to Japan for his ministry.
This stone is cast farther into the unknown. Sunja and Yangjin will live with his brother and sister-in-law in a tiny house in the part of the village designated for Koreans.
And here the mosaic takes on a darker hue. The Japanese treat the Koreans as "unclean" and they are ridiculed throughout this time period as the Japanese eventually inhabit Korea itself.
As war threatens, food and a sense of livelihood becomes scarce. Yangjin and his fellow ministers are arrested and taken to prison by the Japanese for not bowing to the image of the emperor.
His brother must take care of the family now. The mosaics flow tragically in a downward spiral. Throughout Pachinko we will experience individuals desperately making decisions that will affect this family profoundly.
Jealousies, passions, dark secrets, and hatred will visit upon them. The internal cog of this wheel results in painful instability in this family while the outer rim is bent by conditions outside their realm.
History and its aftermath can be a cruel master. What struck me the most is the single thread of loss of identity as two countries inhabit what was once separate domains.
It becomes the oppressed and the oppressor. The Japanese culture overshadows all that is Korean in language, religion, and certainly in social status.
Later, Korea finds itself in a dust storm eventually by the Russians and even the Americans as events unfold.
Pachinko, a lengthy undertaking, is filled with an undying spirit in which we all can relate to no matter where the beginning of your mosaic takes place The author is masterful at teaching us history, examing motives with a generous heart, and letting us think for ourselves.
The audio narrator is amazing too. Aug 22, Cristina Monica rated it really liked it Shelves: family-history , adult , historical-fiction.
This is not a book that will make you happy. It has its happy moments, happy scenes, but those scenes usually involve heartbreak as well.
The contrary also happens. You expect the worst to happen — and it almost does — but then someone saves the day, like the time when Sunja was in danger and a hero appeared.
Is there really someone who managed to finish this one in one sitting or one day even? Because I knew absolutely nothing about the tensions between Koreans and the Japanese, to me this was not only a family tale, but also a long overdue history lesson.

The novel is what we call a saga, with the time span of around eighty years and set both in Korea and Japan, and is interesting with regard to the history, customs and traditions, both Japanese and Korean, however, there is little depth regarding the character development.
Having said that, I admit tha I borrowed this novel mainly due to the fact that I had very general knowledge of the Japanese occupation of the Korean Peninsula, however, I knew nothing of the Korean immigrants living in Japan.
Having said that, I admit that the stories of their lives are interesting. If Min Jin Lee writes another novel, I might give it a try.
I definitely recommend the audiobook as the narrator does a splendid job. View all 31 comments. NOW AVAILABLE!! Following one Korean family through the years from Yeongdo, Busan, Korea where a poor fisherman and his wife give birth to a young infant boy.
Hoonie, their only child of four to survive, was born with a cleft palate and a twisted foot, in addition to a pleasant temperament and broad shoulders.
The year Hoonie turns 27, , Japan annexed Korea. His par!! His parents who have been paying more for their meager existence annually they move themselves to the room near the kitchen in order to facilitate more boarders.
The following year, weeks after his 28th birthday, the town matchmaker appears at their door. Pregnancies followed, but it is through their fourth child, Sunja, that the story continues.
Her father made her corn husk dolls, giving up things to buy her treats. He could never refuse her anything, even though she never asked, her father lived to see her face light up with her smile.
She was perfection. The next morning, the young widow rose from her pallet and returned to work. He is there every time she goes, he speaks to her, but she always rushes away.
One week, on her way home, he rescues her from an attack by some school boys. She sees now that he is kind, notices how well-groomed he is.
A friendly courtship of sorts follows. Before winter of , the Depression was felt in Korea, China, Japan.
Sunja and Yangjin need to fill their home with as many boarders as they can. They recently added a new boarder, a Korean Protestant Minister from Japan.
He is quiet and kind in a soothing way. He feels that he is being called to marry young Sunja, and bring her back with him to Japan.
Sunja and Kyunghee quickly become very close, like sisters. The strength of this relationship is the glue that holds this family, and this story, together.
Through the years of living in Japan in an era decidedly anti-Korean, their bond is unbreakable. These themes, and more. Bigotry in both race and religion.
The financially privileged taking advantage of the needy and underprivileged. I enjoyed the first half of Pachinko more than I did the second half, the second half seemed as though a great deal more was crammed in and as is often the case is family sagas the characters came and went too often to feel invested in them.
That's not to say the second half wasn't good, perhaps slightly less lovely than the first half. Language: For those who prefer their books without profanity, this contains small sections with more than average, but the vast majority of the story has very little.
