The Vegetarian

The Vegetarian - Han Kang I'm a fan of open endings, psychological breaks, and bizarro premises, but this didn't hit the right note for me. This is my first dip into Korean literature and I was not ready for it. I think I need some short stories or something to warm up to the general atmosphere before diving into something like this. I just don't see what all the raving is about, maybe I wasn't in the right mindset. Dark, yes, but this didn't feel particularly deep or intriguing. The characters felt pretty flat, especially the main character, and I was so flipping confused at the end. I just......don't get it. I feel so ashamed.
