I’ve been meaning to read this book for over a year now. It took me a bit to get to it, but I’m glad I finally did.
The rich storytelling of Pachinko grabbed me from the first pages and I found it impossible to put down. From Sunja and her parents to her children and their children and friends, each character had a heartbreaking life filled with love and loss.
The overarching theme of belonging and having a home where you’re loved and accepted for who you are is universal, but Pachinko explored this theme with depth and reality.
This multigenerational story is one that will stay with me for a while.
