A New York Times Top Ten Book of the Year and National Book Award finalist, Pachinko is an "extraordinary epic" of four generations of a poor Korean immigrant family as they fight to control their destiny in 20th-century Japan (San Francisco Chronicle).

And yet we played on, because we had hope that we might be the lucky ones." In the early 1900s, teenaged Sunja, the adored daughter of a crippled fisherman, falls for a wealthy stranger at the seashore near her home in Korea. He promises her the world, but when she discovers she is pregnant--and that her lover is married--she refuses to be bought. Instead, she accepts an offer of marriage from a gentle, sickly minister passing through on his way to Japan. But her decision to abandon her home, and to reject her son's powerful father, sets off a dramatic saga that will echo down through the generations. Richly told and profoundly moving, Pachinko is a story of love, sacrifice, ambition, and loyalty. From bustling street markets to the halls of Japan's finest universities to the pachinko parlors of the criminal underworld, Lee's complex and passionate characters--strong, stubborn women, devoted sisters and sons, fathers shaken by moral crisis--survive and thrive against the indifferent arc of history. *Includes reading group guide*

Fazia um tempo que um livro não me emocionava
on 14/10/20


Livro maravilhoso, história de 4 gerações de uma família coreana que foram viver n Japão, o livro passa de 1900 até 1989. Histórias de superação, tristeza, guerra, discriminação, amor, luto. Muitos protagonistas no livro, livro sensível e ao mesmo duro e cru com a realidade. Muitas vezes tive que parar de ler para respirar e conseguir absorver o que tinha acabado de ler. Recomendo muito a leitura de Pachinko. Está na lista dos meus favoritos.... leia mais
