The next book

My last book seemed to be finished before I began!!  I don't think this next one will be the same.

Pachinko, which means "pinball"  has me putting it down every few pages to think about what I have just read.  I don't know a lot about Korea or the way of life of it's people.  I know that there is ill feeling between those people and the Japanese but as to why I am now finding out.  I visited Korea with my husband when he went on a business trip a number of years ago and remember having problems with the stainless steel chop sticks.  I also fell in love with their hand stitched thimbles and other small stitcheries along with their patchwork.  This book starts out saying one thing but opens you up to a range of other emotions.  If you enjoy historical fiction you will love this book.

You can click on the link at the beginning of the last paragraph to read a range of reviews from people far more informed than me.  I also know that the Korean's practice their own form of Kogin embroidery which is so similar to the Japanese form it is hard to tell them apart.

This is a good book and a great read.
