Last week while at our local library branch I noticed a book on the new fiction shelf called Pachinko, by Min Jin Lee. The cover art initially caught my eye and I picked the book up and read the inside cover to get an idea of the story. Deciding that it might be something I would enjoy reading I checked the book out and I am glad I did. It is a family saga beginning in 1902 Korea and continuing through present day. I like the pace of the story, it doesn't linger, but is isn't rushed. It is interesting to me as it is set in a culture I am not familiar with yet the struggles the characters go through are familiar to all people.
