The Vegetarian

The Vegetarian was a captivating piece that was almost too bizarre and toxic to put down. In the book Yeong-hye, a housewife, has a dream that horrifies her into becoming a vegetarian overnight. Her husband doesn’t understand, and neither does her family. As her behavior becomes increasingly alarming to all of them, they all try to help her, or abandon her, or abuse her in different ways.
