Han Kang’s The Vegetarian is somewhat realistic, but mostly just bloody and animalistic

First published back in 2007, Han Kang's The Vegetarian is still quite the talk of the town with her unusual and quite vivid approach to life, marriage, and, as the title says, eating meat.

BOOK REVIEW: How many times will we be faced with struggle for justice – Human Acts 

Even though she is best known for her controversial novel Vegetarian (which I might end up reviewing sometime), Han Kang's strongest release for me is her incredible, historical based novel Human Acts.
