  • Strangely, the complaints I had with this are very similar to those I ve had with many books I ve read this year in short, that I loved one half of the book, but the found the other lacking or at odds with the rest of the book I really enjoyed the first half of Princess Bari, which tells the story of a young girl growing up in North Korea, during the time of the great famine of the 1990s Bari is the seventh daughter of a couple desperate to have a son, and was named after a princess from one of [...]


  • Princess Bari is a remarkable coming of age novel that speaks of hardship, courage and determination.Hwang Sok Yong writes with poignancy and humour as we follow Bari s life narrated by Bari in a rational and undramatised way.A reworking of the Korean mythological story of Princess Bari, an ancestral shaman and the seventh daughter of King Ogu, making it relevant to the 21st century.Sok Yong writes of impoverished North Korea and Bari s remarkable survival in the forests of china, her horrific j [...]


  • Princess Bari is a harrowing, magical tale of a young girl s resilience through living Hell The story combines a modern day plight of one North Korean girl s journey to the west and a traditional Korean shamanistic story of travelling through Hell and back The traditional Korean story that is intertwined with the modern day Hells that Bari goes through on her journey is somewhat reminiscent of the tale of Orpheus One thing I have tried to teach myself when reading Hwang Sok yong s books is to do [...]

  • There were still so many people crossing endless borders in search of food, just so they could live without the constant threat of death by Hwang Sok yong has been translated as Princess Bari by the excellent Sora Kim Russell.Overall, Princess Bari was a worthwhile read but didn t quite work for me.That s largely because of the uneasy blend of three different elements a story of his heroine Bari s struggles in daily life in North Korea, near to the Chinese border, which then shifts to her subseq [...]


  • il percorso di Bari che come la principessa che porta il suo stesso nome deve superare tante prove prima di diventare una sciamana la storia di tanti migranti che sono esuli e che soffrono atrocemente in cerca di un futuro pi umano Anche questo libro, come quello di Han Kang La vegetariana , visionario.A mio avviso, per , la scrittura di Han Kang pi potente di quella di Hwang Sok yong Bianca come la luna comincia benissimo nella prima parte Poi si perde un po a met e recupera un po nel finale.Sa [...]


  • Interesting book about the life of north koreans depiction of the great hunger, massive emmigrations to China Bari is the seventh daughter in a family with only girls, this story has a bit of Asian mithology and philosophy.I did like this book, although I didn t particulary enjoy the philosophy.



  • I understand the main issue s people had with this book, but I really enjoyed the contrast between the magical realism that dominates the first half of the book and the grim realities of the lives of refugees in the UK described the second half of the novel Not entirely unexpected, given Hwang s background He is a passionate human rights activist and was once jailed by the South Korean government for taking unauthorised trips to North Korea to promote openness between the two countries.The prose [...]



  • Jeg var spent da jeg plukket opp denne Den var anbefalt av p bakgrunn av andre ting jeg hadde lest, og de b kene jeg har lest fra Font forlag tidligere har v rt gode Boken starter spennende og er halvveis interessant i begynnelsen av fortellingen Men avslutningen er ikke en roman verdig, og minner mer om noe en sjetteklassing med d rlig tid ville hostet opp Det er kjedelig sitte igjen med et stort MEH, men det er dessverre faktum for meg etter ha lest denne romanen.


  • One day, I was at the Tumen River with Mi when we saw something drifting downstream It was the body of a woman floating face down, with a baby on her back Mother and child have died together Had this been ordinary times, my sister and I would have shrieked in shock and run to get somebody, but instead we held our breath and watched in silence I gave this book 3 stars because of technical reasons but ultimately I really enjoyed this read It is based on the Korean fairtale Princess Bari whose name [...]


  • In a lyrical narrative blurring the lines between real life and the spiritual plane, Sok yong and his translator deliver the sweet and tragic story of little Bari as she flees North Korea and starts new lives in China and London.The story shifts locations, and with them, tones Looking at previous reviews, other readers found the changes quite jarring, but I felt they reflected her status as a stranger in a strange land And the magical aspect worked for me It never changed its rules, or contradic [...]


  • Tanti contenuti attuali, interessanti e toccanti Ho trovato per che la prima parte del libro, ambientata in Corea del Nord, sia un po troppo scollata dalla parte finale, che narra invece di vicende svoltesi nel Regno Unito Cio , dal punto di vista della trama non ho nulla da dire, il problema a mio parere sta nella quantit e nella distribuzione delle tematiche affrontare.La prima parte mi piaciuta molto perch racconta in maniera semplice e chiara quello che la Corea del Nord per questo mi sento [...]


  • Not my normal sort of read but really enjoyed exploring the world of North Korea during the 1980 s and the harrowing experiences of a refugee through China and then on to England Bari is the seventh daughter of a poor North Korean couple who yearn for a son She has, however, inherited a mystic ability from her grandmother to read other people s pain as well as to contact deceased loved ones, including her beloved dog.After losing her family she uses a people smuggler and travels to England in th [...]


  • I really enjoyed this, I was confused about the years the first bit in Korea and China occurs in but when it s in London and it s the year 2000, it becomes shocking that the famine and poverty are so recent I like magical realism and bizarre dream sequences but do realise that not everyone does, there s a lot of that in this story I think this book illustrates why it s important to read diversely and feel empathy for characters completely foreign to you, it would be hard to read this and not fe [...]


  • This was of a 3.5 star read.I liked the way this was written The narrative is simple yet descriptive If there was a flaw, I think it s the time element years have gone by but since her narrative style doesn t shift to include much of the modern setting, I feel like I m still in the 80 s There is a lot of depth to the story, and the tone was consistent all throughout.


  • Un livre facile et rapide lire Nous suivons les aventures de Bari, jeune Cor enne aux pouvoirs mystiques et habitu e aux drames L histoire est fluide et pleine de rebondissements durant les trois premiers quarts du roman, et je m en suis r gal Malheureusement le dernier quart ainsi que la fin m auront beaucoup d u J ai trouv cette partie brouillon Trois toiles donc Mais trois belles toiles Je recommande malgr tout.


  • some amazing bits in here, but the translation seems a little saggy in places and the story sort of peters out two thirds of the way through



  • 2nd book of my BookTubeAThon, which completed the challenge read a book with a person on the cover.Really liked it but definitely not one of the most optimistic book out there


  • The story is presented as a contemporary parallel to Korean folktale Princess Bari, who, like the main character, was abandoned at birth by her parents for being another girl in the family Deemed worthless, Bari was left to fend for herself, before proving her worth by saving his parents kingdom when it was inflicted by disasters.I was looking forward to how the classical tale is re interpreted, but somehow I feel that the book is a little flat The most problematic part for me is that Bari s suf [...]




  • Princess Bari, by Hwang Sok yong translated by Sora Kim Russell tells the story of a young girl from North Korea who is named after the legendary princess The seventh daughter of a couple desperate to have a son, she is abandoned in the woods by her mother at birth before being rescued by her grandmother who gives her the name Throughout her life she turns to her grandmother for help and advice, even after the old woman s death.Bari s early life is as settled and happy as could be hoped for give [...]


  • I initially picked this up due to the pretty cover and my general interest in Korean culture I wasn t sure what to make of it but figured if give it a go It starts off quite simply, a standard tale of a North Korean family, before tragedies start to befall them The protagonist, Bari, undergoes countless hardships and losses, and I find it hard to summarise this into any sort of description that does it justice There s a LOT of social commentary with overt philosophical overtones, relating to fam [...]
