    Thanks for the book recommendations. They all sound pretty good.

    I agree with your assessment of Pachinko. Our book club read it and all of us thought the last 1/3 was not as engaging as the first part of the book. I got to the point where I just didn’t care much about the characters. I did very much enjoy learning about the Korean culture and Korean/Japanese relations post WWII, that was a topic I knew very little about.

    I’ve finished 5 books so far this year, so fairly well on-track to hit my goal of 65. And now I have several more to add to my “to-read” list – thanks!

      Yes! I found the first part so fascinating! I did not know about the Korean culture and it was interesting to read, especially the WW2 part. None of that was covered in my history classes.

      Nice job on your goals!!
