Through eight decades and four generations, Pachinko is an epic tale of family, identity, love, death and survival. Told with such flair and linguistic dexterity that I found myself unable to put it down.
Every year, there are a few standout novels that survive long past the hype has died down and the hyperbolic compliments from friends scattered across the dust jacket have been forgotten.
Pachinko , a masterpiece of empathy, integrity and familial loyalty, will be one of those novels. It's also fiendishly readable - the real deal.
An instant classic, a quick page-turner, and probably the best book of the year. You can sense the author's love and understanding for all the characters, the good and the flawed' Irish Examiner.
A striking introduction to lives, to a world, [the reader] may never have seen, or even thought to look at.
In our increasingly fractured and divisive times, there can be no higher purpose for literature: all in the pages of a book that, once you've started, you'll simply be unable to put down.
This story of several generations of one Korean family in Japan is the story of every family whose parents sacrificed for their children, every family whose children were unable to recognize the cost, but it's also the story of a specific cultural struggle in a riveting time and place.
Min Jin Lee has written a big, beautiful book filled with characters I rooted for and cared about and remembered after I'd read the final page.
I could not stop turning the pages, and wished this most poignant of sagas would never end. Min Jin Lee displays a tenderness and wisdom ideally matched to an unforgettable tale that she relates just perfectly.
In this haunting epic tale, no one story seems too minor to be briefly illuminated. Lee suggests that behind the facades of wildly different people lie countless private desires, hopes and miseries, if we have the patience and compassion to look and listen.
An old-fashioned epic whose simple, captivating storytelling delivers both wisdom and truth. Lee's skilful development of her characters and story lines will draw readers into the work.
Those who enjoy historical fiction with strong characterisations will not be disappointed as they ride along on the emotional journeys offered in the author's latest page-turner.
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.
He relays the information to Etsuko and Mozasu, who manage to locate her. After graduating college, Solomon takes a job at a British bank and moves back to Japan with Phoebe.
His first major client project involves convincing an elderly Korean woman to sell her land in order to clear way for the construction of a golf resort, which he accomplishes by calling in a favor from his father's friend Goro.
When the woman dies of natural causes soon after, Solomon's employers claim the deal will attract negative publicity and fire him, citing his father's connections to Pachinko and implying that the woman was murdered by a hit.
With newfound resolve and a clearer outlook on life, Solomon breaks up with Phoebe, goes to work for his father's business, and makes amends with a dying Hana in the hospital.
Now an elderly woman, Sunja visits Isak's grave and reflects on her life. She finds out from the cemetery groundskeeper that despite the shame Noa felt for his family, Noa had been visiting Isak's grave longer after Noa ceased contact with his family and started a new life in Japan.
This gives Sunja the closure and reassurance she needs, and she buries a photo of Noa beside Isak's grave. Hoonie — Hoonie is the first character to be introduced in the story, born with a twisted foot and a cleft palate.
Sunja — Sunja is the main protagonist of Pachinko, appearing all throughout the novel. Sunja has two children. He is first introduced when he visits Yangjin's boardinghouse on his way to Osaka to move in with his brother, Yoseb.
Sickly since birth, Baek Isak struggles with sickness until his death in Osaka. Kyunghee — Kyunghee is Yoseb's wife and Sunja's best friend and sister-in-law.
She plays a large part in helping Sunja support their families in living, helping Sunja prepare Kimchi to sell. He works in a factory to support his family.
He lives in Ikaino in Osaka, where most Koreans in Osaka are known to live. He receives a job opportunity in Nagasaki in Using his connections, Koh Hansu continually strives to earn money and control what he can.
Hansu meets Sunja in Korea and falls in love, even though he has a wife in Japan. Throughout the novel, Hansu utilizes his influence to look after Sunja and her family, helping to keep them alive and well.
Hansu is driven by his love for his only son, Noa. Noa — Noa is the only son of Koh Hansu and Sunja. He struggles with identity issues stemming from his biological father's associations with the yakuza.
Mozasu — Mozasu is the only son of Baek Isak and Sunja. He faces constant bullying in school and tends to retaliate with force.
As a result, he is taken into an apprenticeship at a Pachinko parlor as a guard. Eventually, he moves up in the ranks and ends up as an owner of parlors himself.
Mozasu marries a girl named Yumi and has one son, Solomon. Solomon — Solomon is the only son of Mozasu and Yumi.
Growing up, Solomon does not face many of the same issues and his father or grandmother, since his father is very wealthy.
Torn about what he wants to do with his life, he visits America and eventually decides that he wants to enter the Pachinko business like his father.Pachinko ist eine Mischung aus Geldspielautomat und senkrechtem Arcade-Spiel, die in Japan sehr populär ist.
