Book Review: The Vegetarian by Han Kang

Lifestyle, Reading

The book I consumed in a single day.


Although, I usually don’t read fiction, I picked up The Vegetarian at an airport. I had a two-hour flight ahead and thought “why not read a little?”, before picking the Man Booker International Prize Winner as a book of choice. My two-hour flight couldn’t have gone faster. I read half of the book during that one journey.

The Vegetarian by Han Kang, is a simple, straight-to-the-point read. A woman’s struggle with mental illness is beautifully portrayed from the perspective of her relatives and loved ones. Every perspective, every experience is intertwined. Her journey is transcended though the vivid, mesmerising and the ever so fragile story of love, abuse and family. My first impression of the book was that its an easy read. It had no fancy jargon that an-English-is-my-second-language person like myself, couldn’t understand. It was also a thrilling read that had me hooked. The descend of the protagonist’s mental state is so relatable, that anyone who even caught a glimpse of such devastation in real life, will be able to vividly picture the story that Han Kang so beautifully describes. If you liked the Fifty Shades of Grey books, you will enjoy this one.

I cannot wait to read Han Kang’s Human Acts book next.
