Before the nightmare, Yeong-hye and her husband lived an ordinary life. But when splintering, blood-soaked images start haunting her thoughts, Yeong-hye decides to purge her mind and renounce eating meat. In a country where societal mores are strictly obeyed, Yeong-hye's decision to embrace a more “plant-like” existence is a shocking act of subversion. And as her passive rebellion manifests in ever more extreme and frightening forms, scandal, abuse, and estrangement begin to send Yeong-hye spiraling deep into the spaces of her fantasy. In a complete metamorphosis of both mind and body, her now dangerous endeavor will take Yeong-hye — impossibly, ecstatically, tragically — far from her once-known self altogether. A disturbing, yet beautifully composed narrative told in three parts, The Vegetarian is an allegorical novel about modern day South Korea, but also a story of obsession, choice, and our faltering attempts to understand others, from one imprisoned body to another.

Un libro crudo y extraño. Cada quien puede darle su propia interpretación, pero me parece que lo que le sucede a la protagonista es el negarse rotundamente a la violencia y las consecuencias que esto conlleva.

I can't finished this book in one sitting. I need to stop many times. It still haunting me. The only question keep floating in my mind while I read it is why? And the end is kinda unexpected.

Only the violence is vivid enough to stick.
In the five years we’d been married, this was the first time I’d had to go to work without her handing me my things and seeing me off.

Oh, the needy man.

I didn’t know what I could do, exactly, but I knew that I had
