The Vegetarian [book, audiobook]

 The Vegetarian [book, audiobook]

I DON'T KNOW, I FEEL VERY JUVENILE FOR THINKING THIS, BECAUSE THIS IS A SERIOUS AND AWARD WINNING BOOK, BUT I CAN NOT ESCAPE HOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THE STRUCTURE OF THE WRITING HERE IS SO ' REDDIT CREEPY PASTA'. I MEAN, I GET THAT THE REASON IT FEELS THAT WAY IS THAT CREEPY PASTA WRITING JUST TAKING THE MOST SHOCKING OR EXTREME THINGS AND USING THEM CHEAPLY AND THIS WAS TRYING TO BE SERIOUS ABOUT IT, BUT IT FELT LIKE IT SOURED ME ON THE BOOK. THIS ISN'T REALLY EVEN A HORROR BOOK, BUT JUST THE WHOLE STRUCTURE OF A GUY WITH A WIFE AND THE WIFE ISN'T A CHARACTER BECAUSE SHE'S *SO ENTRANCED* BY A GIMMICKY THING THAT SHE CAN ONLY SAY *CRYPTIC REPEATED SENTENCES* AND THE HUSBAND POV NARRATOR DOING *SHOCKING THINGS* WHILE CALMLY NARRATING JUST SCREAM CREEPYPASTA WRITING. 

PS. MAN, I WAS GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW IT'S THREE PARTS AND HOW THE LAST PART FELT MORE GROUNDED, WHERE INSTEAD OF THE PREDICTABLE CREEPYPASTA ENDING THAT SO OBVIOUSLY WAS GOING TO HAPPEN IT JUST TOOK A HARD BREAK AND SAID "ACTUALLY THIS IS A METAPHOR FOR BEING A WOMAN IN MODERN (KOREA)" AND THAT FELT A LITTLE CLEVER BUT ALSO FELT EXTREMELY ABRUPT AND OUT OF PLACE AND NOT REALLY LIKE IT CONNECTED WITH THE ACTUAL STORY BEFORE THAT THAT STRONGLY, BUT LOOKING IT UP THE SHORT STORY THE NOVEL WAS EXPANDED OUT OF JUST DID HAVE THE STUPID CREEPYPASTA TYPE ENDING AND THEY CHANGED IT. SO LIKE, I DO PRAISE THEM REALIZING IT WAS TOO STUPID, BUT IT DOES FEEL LIKE A HACK JOB OF EDITING, LIKE YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE ORIGINAL ENDING WAS THEN IT FEELS LIKE THEY JUST GLUED AN EXTRA PAGE ON TOP OF IT WITH THIS ACTUAL MORAL THAT ONLY VAUGELY FITS.
