Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.

Human Acts

Human Acts - Han Kang

 

Human Acts by Han Kang comprises memories about the 1980 Gwangju Uprising in South Korea, narrowed down to the memories surrounding the death of one young man named Dong-Ho. In interconnected chapters, the book depicts the events and their aftermath through different perspectives. This book, though fiction, bears witness to a dark event in history. Fiction is not history, but can certainly point to history I may never otherwise have learned. A tragic and haunting book.
