Plot:

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.

Thoughts:

I am not sure if the title of the book goes in hand with the story.

The story revolves to be more of a depiction of mental illnesses, but it is quite confusing and overwhelming.

After i finished the book, my only thought was “What did I just read?!” And nope I did not grasp any of it and it was exhausting to finish.

 Quotes:

“Kind people who put others before themselves would be the first to die. It was the ruthless and the selfish who would survive.”
