Yeongdo, Korea 1911.
In a small fishing village on the banks of the East Sea, a club-footed, cleft-lipped man marries a fifteen-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, no home, and whose language she cannot speak, 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 survival. --Este texto se refere à uma edição alternativa kindle_edition

But most of all, it's a story about emotional connections. No matter how capable or intelligent you are, without love and support, it's hard to make it in the world. Pachinko shows that with incredible clarity. The value of human understanding is shown many times throughout the story.
I reccomend this book to everyone who enjoys learning new cultures and sensitive, rich storytelling.
A história gira em volta de Sungha, adolescente no início do livro e seus parentes e descendentes.// ML
Vale a leitura pela historia densa de discriminação e negações históricas. E até como denunciar problemas do passado que repercutem ainda no presente.
De uma maneira geral, vale a leitura apesar achar que na segunda metade do livro, a história se perde um pouco e fica meio sem foco.
Eu tenho um Inglês intermediário e não senti dificuldades com a leitura. As Dicas de Vocabulário do Kindle também ajudam bastante.

I am so pleased I bought this book. It was enthralling - took me less than two days to read. I began by thinking it was going to be a family saga type book (which I normally avoid like the plague) but it was anything but.
I found myself become deeply involved with the characters and wanting to know how they got on, how their various decisions affected their lives. I was actually pleased it is a standalone book as it meant more than the first in a series.
I'd no idea what pachinko was (or, indeed, is) and I vaguely (and incorrectly) thought it would have something to do with food or clothing.
I hadn't realised how the Koreans were treated by the Japanese and had no idea of what they had to undergo in their day to day lives in either Korea or Japan. This book was an education.
I understood from the interview that this book took a very long time to write and that it was impeccably researched, so thought it deserved reading. There are a considerable number of characters with Korean and Japanese names and lots of words that need looking up in order to get their full meaning. I didn't even know what 'Pachinko' was and if you don't know you won't find out until about half way through the book - unless you look it up first. These are not criticisms, but I do feel that this book needs a fairly academic approach to get the most out of it. It is not an easy read. Following the lives and 'fortunes' of a Korean family who 'escape' to Japan in order to avoid starvation, it is a story of persecution and prejudice on many levels. If you like a feel-good story this is not for you, but if you can take a big dose of reality and admire the qualities of human spirit and tenacity in adversity then you will find this book both informative and deeply moving.
