Alanya'da her iyi kahvecinin sokak arasında olması çok hoşuma gidiyor. Etraftan uzak, sessiz, kendi hallerinde yerler. İçine girer girmez evimde, kitap okuyabileceğim bir ruh halinde hissediyorum. Evreka'nın muhteşem tatlıları ve müzikleri, Ferroni'nin sıcacık koltukları ve sarmaşıkları... Buralarda başka dünyalar var.

NIGHTSTAND
Ønsker jer alle en dejlig aften med en litterær anbefaling: koreanske Han Kangs Vegetaren👌. Jeg har en kæmpe svaghed for fortællinger, der tematiserer, hvor lidt der skal til for at slå os mennesker ud af kurs. Og at sammenbruddet ofte alligevel stikker langt dybere... #læsden #engodbogfragyldendal @forlagetgyldendal #vildmedbøger #vildmedlitteratur #bookstagram #lovebooks #litteratur #hankang #vegetaren
○ The boy with the slender neck & thin summer clothes is walking along the snow-covered path that winds between the graves, & I am following behind. ○

Human Acts, written by Han Kang & translated by Deborah Smith, is a beautiful, raw, heartbreaking examination of the 1980 Gwangju massacre perpetrated by government forces. The writing & structure are exceptional; the translation feels perfect. There is a mighty humanity packed in to this slender book. My thoughts are now with everyone who has ever suffered at the hands of those sworn to protect them, & yes, they are myriad.

When you have no power whatsoever over your own life, wouldn't you rather just become a tree? You could stretch your legs high up into the air while your arms extend all the way down to the earth's very core, and the water that is saturating the soil would be drawn up through your cells, eventually to bloom from your crotch like flowers. 
If anyone else wants to read a Korean novel filled with blood, rape, and vomit, PM me your address and I'll send it to you. Also, I've finished The Handmaid's Tale and would happily pass that on as well. Both books are well worth reading.

Look, sister, I’m doing a handstand; leaves are growing out of my body, roots are sprouting out of my hands. They delve down into the earth. Endlessly, endlessly. Yes, I spread my legs because I wanted flowers to bloom from my crotch; I spread them wide.

This beautiful paperback of Human Acts is also beautifully foiled, the words written by  author Han Kang herself. 
Translated by Deborah Smith once again, Human Acts examines the 1980 Gwangju Massacre, which saw government forces turn on a largely-student protest.

Vegetarian adalah kisah tentang seorang wanita dan keluarganya yang tak biasa. Sebuah kisah yang mampu menunjukkan kekakuan struktur masyarakat dan bagaimana kekakuan itu runtuh bersama dengan hasrat dari setiap tokoh yang ada dalam cerita. Vegetarian adalah novel pertama Han Kang yang terbit dalam bahasa Indonesia. Sebuah novel sensual, provokatif, penuh dengan kekerasan, tapi tetap kuat menggambarkan setiap peristiwa. Sebuah novel yang  mengejutkan dan memunculkan pertanyaan yang menggangu. Tak salah jika The New York Times menempatkannya sebagai salah satu, dari 10 buku terbaik tahun 2016.

#Vegetarianen av sydkoreanska författarinnan #HanKang är en historia om en kvinnas kamp för att få vara sig själv, sedd från mannens, svågerns och systerns perspektiv. Ett fantastiskt språk, intressanta karaktärer och en unik historia gör detta till en mycket läsvärd bok. Dessvärre tappar den lite mot slutet, men det är ändå en bok jag skulle rekommendera till alla som vill ta sig an en okonventionell berättelse som innehåller fler frågor än svar.

Finished 1984 and rather not discuss it given the world news of late and my MH state at the moment. However, I would like to discuss The Vegetarian. I think I might pick that one up again. Yes, it's dark too but writen in such a way that I can't seem to stop once I've started reading. •
Are you or did you read this book? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

Enjoy your Sunday eve!

I was so excited to read this much talked about book, and was highly disappointed 🤦🏼‍♀️ It's the first South Korean author I've read, and I really enjoyed the style of writing. I found the plot absolutely disturbing, strange and a little far fetched. I know, I know, it's a representation of something greater but I struggled to get to the end with all the meat and gore! This book is about anything but being a vegetarian! 😂 #bookworm #bookworld #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #instabook #thevegeterian #hankang

#thevegetarian by #hankang, 
The album by #jonghyun a very very handsome member of #SHINee (not to be confused with Hong Jong Hyun who is also very very handsome), And the interestingly titled #mylesbianexperiencewithloneliness by #nagatakabi. That should be a neat read.

As fate would have it I happened on another book on power. I kid you not I went in blind and found myself utterly immersed, only to emerge on other side so emotionally exhausted. Although, I should have known judging from the obscure & eerie cover (Duhhhh!!)
▪️▪️▪️
Human Acts narrates the tragedy of South Korea's (not so known) Gwangju uprising not as a didactic historical account but as a cautionary tale on political & social upheavals through the stories of 6 people including the author.
▪️▪️▪️
It's POV approach is clear & concise & manages to give us enough to understand the phlight of each character. Half way through the book you realise that there is a tonal shift & the final chapter masterfully wraps all the elements together with an autobiographical account from Han Kang herself during & after the Gwangju uprising. I was stunned at how detailed the autobiographical account was & it goes without saying that this violated my expectations of genre classification. I'm still outchea pondering this issue 🤔.
▪️▪️▪️
It manages to capture for us what South Korean society is like by glorifying breastfeeding (YAY!) & giving a detailed account of customs which are essential to a South Koreans. I welcomed this as a break from all the visceral images of corpses and lost souls. Dead bodies & massacre's are what open up this novel which is (upon reflection) a clever way to draw the reader in.
▪️▪️▪️
Anyway, I highly recommend it because it's masterfully written and captivating. As for me I will be staying away from gory books until my soul has had time to recover. ▪️▪️▪️
It's a 5 ⭐️. It asks a lot of questions which I remember pondering about when I read up on Apartheid. I'll leave you with one such quote:
"Is it true that human beings are fundamentally cruel? Is the experience of cruelty the only thing we share as a species? Is the dignity that we cling to nothing but self-delusion, masking from ourselves the single truth: that each one of us is capable of being reduced to an insect, a ravening beast, a lump of meat? To be degraded, slaughtered - is this the essential of humankind, one which history has confirmed as inevitable?" #book49 of 💯

Human Acts by Han Kang
#ownvoices for:
- South Korean
📚
Goodreads Synopsis:
From the internationally bestselling author of The Vegetarian, a rare and astonishing (The Observer) portrait of political unrest and the universal struggle for justice.
📚
In the midst of a violent student uprising in South Korea, a young boy named Dong-ho is shockingly killed.
📚
The story of this tragic episode unfolds in a sequence of interconnected chapters as the victims and the bereaved encounter suppression, denial, and the echoing agony of the massacre. From Dong-ho's best friend who meets his own fateful end; to an editor struggling against censorship; to a prisoner and a factory worker, each suffering from traumatic memories; and to Dong-ho's own grief-stricken mother; and through their collective heartbreak and acts of hope is the tale of a brutalized people in search of a voice.
📚
An award-winning, controversial bestseller, Human Acts is a timeless, pointillist portrait of an historic event with reverberations still being felt today, by turns tracing the harsh reality of oppression and the resounding, extraordinary poetry of humanity.

Sunny and warm Saturday, so some beer and book on the patio. Book is The Man Booker Intl Prize 2016 winner: Han Kang's "The Vegetarian". Beer is under the label Laukko Vaalea, light lager (4,6%), from the Laukko Mansion. Brewery is Saimaan Juomatehdas. Slightly cloudy, golden yellow pale lager with some sweetness and toffee flavor.

Beer is under the label Laukko Vaalea, light lager (4,6%), from the Laukko Mansion. Brewery is Saimaan Juomatehdas. Slightly cloudy, golden yellow pale lager with some sweetness and toffee flavor. Quite good, to confess. #beer  #craftbeer  #palelager  #lager  #saimaanjuomatehdas  #laukkobeer  #bier  #biere  #birra  #piwo  #pivo  #öl  #olut  #õlu  #alus  #cerveja  #cerveza  #paperback  #literature  #hankang  #thevegetarian  #fiction  #koreanwriter  #novel  #bicycle  #cycling

Bought these two well respected English translated Korean novels by Han Kang today, after talking about them yesterday with my friend.  Seems like I've been talking about Gwangju quite a lot recently with Han Kang being from there and with the newly released Korean film 'Taxi Driver' being about the 1980 Gwangju uprising and massacre, trying to fight for democracy during a military dictatorship. Which the novel Human Acts is also set and based on. #hankang #thevegetarian #humanacts #korea #southkorea #novel #southkoreannovelist #gwangju #gwangju1980 #gwangjuuprising #englishtranslation #themanbookerprize #themanbookerinternationalprize

Saturday afternoon was spent reading The Vegetarian by Han Kang and a smooth flat white coffee made to perfection by the Baristas at Blue Tokai Coffee (@bluetokaicoffee). ************************************ How is your weekend coming along? ************************************ #bookstagram #booksandcoffee #bluetokaibombay #bluetokaicoffee #witmonth #thevegetarian #hankang #portobellobooks #bookishhygge #bookishcomfort #thesimplejoysoflife #whatcouldbebetter
Yeong-hye turned her head and stared blankly at In-hye, as though the latter were not sister but a complete stranger. After a while, the question came. "Why, is it such a bad thing to die?"

Just finished this novel couple days ago. Well, I'm having hard times to find the proper word to describe this novel. It's just "woah". At first pages I was like "okay..interesting" and then the next following pages got me like "the heck! What was that?!! Damn you Han Kang!" Boom..the plot turn upside-down. The second part, Mongolian Mark was my favorite part. It was jaw-dropping and mind-blowing. No wonder she beats Eka and be the winner of The Man Booker International Prize last year. And now I'm dying to read Human Acts...but am broke af. Thank you. For asking. I love you. Muah.

¡Sigo aquí! Y me quedan muy poquitas páginas para acabar esta pasada de libro. El otro día incluso soñé con Yeonghye, la protagonista indirecta de esta historia. Este libro me está absorviendo el seso y he de reconocer que me angustia un poco... Por suerte es viernes y sé que puedo quedarme leyendo hasta la madrugada. Aunque no creo que me dure tanto... ¡Ya os contaré!

Bu akşam almayı seçtiğim 3 kitap. Uzun zamandır #kitap almamaya çalışıyorum çünkü eski hızımda okuyamadığım için kafam bozuluyor o kitapları beni beklerden kitaplığın bi köşesinde görünce. #mutakami orucumu da bozmaya karar verdim. #zemberrekkuşşunungüncesi ve #imkansızınşarkısı' nı Nasıl beğenmişsem, #renksiztsukurutazakininhacyillari beni o kadar hayal kırıklığına uğratmıştı. Yani ölçek oldukça büyüktü. Gözlükler oğluşumun. Benim gözlüğüm olmayınca onunkinin havasından faydalanıyım  dedim ☺️ #balyanaklardeniz #hankang #vejateryan #çelişki #barışince
