Reviews
The premise, and the first couple pages, kind of reminded me of the premise of The Vegetarian by Han Kang. And while they undoubtedly both make a point about the treatment of women in Korean society, double standards, gender inequality and discrimination, they couldn't be more different. While The Vegetarian was a story that made a point, the point of this book made a story, meaning the point came first and it feels like the story was made up around it. It is a paper about gender inequality in Korea dressed up as a novel. That in itself doesn't necessarily influence whether or not you're going to enjoy this book, but I thought adding my two cents on this will help others manage their expectations of this book, and potentially help you enjoy it more than I did.
