NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review - Publisher's Weekly - Buzzfeed - Entertainment Weekly - Time - Wall Street Journal - Bustle - Elle - The Economist - Slate - The Huffington Post - The St. Louis Dispatch - Electric Literature

Featured in the New York Times selection of "15 remarkable books by women that are shaping the way we read and write fiction in the 21st century"

A beautiful, unsettling novel about rebellion and taboo, violence and eroticism, and the twisting metamorphosis of a soul

Before the nightmares began, Yeong-hye and her husband lived an ordinary, controlled life. But the dreams--invasive images of blood and brutality--torture her, driving Yeong-hye to purge her mind and renounce eating meat altogether. It's a small act of independence, but it interrupts her marriage and sets into motion an increasingly grotesque chain of events at home. As her husband, her brother-in-law and sister each fight to reassert their control, Yeong-hye obsessively defends the choice that's become sacred to her. Soon their attempts turn desperate, subjecting first her mind, and then her body, to ever more intrusive and perverse violations, sending Yeong-hye spiraling into a dangerous, bizarre estrangement, not only from those closest to her, but also from herself.

Celebrated by critics around the world, The Vegetarian is a darkly allegorical, Kafka-esque tale of power, obsession, and one woman's struggle to break free from the violence both without and within her.

I enjoyed the chill when I read this book. Really somethings I hope for a horror story. Can be said this is one of my favorite horror book!

A woman decides to be vegetarian; everyone around her : ಠ_ಠ
By: Antonius B.

So that’s the basic premise of this book, someone decides to be vegetarian and everyone is like, “nope”. This plot  that is literally lifted from the Simpson episode entitled “Lisa the Vegetarian” still manages to deliver an impactful story that is filled with sex and violence (so I guess it’s different from the Simpson in this aspect).

One thing that really blew my mind is hiow short this novel was, yet it still haunts me. Do read if you are going to a trip and looking for a quick read on the plane. (but read it on your way back for fear of ruining your appetite during your trip)
