I Want to Die But I Want to East Tteokpokki by Baek Se-hee – Book Review

I got this book solely for the title. It’s a non-fiction of a woman’s accounts of her sessions with her psychiatrist as she is treated for depression. I thought it was interesting, however I found the interactions with her doctor didn’t feel real. I realised as I was going that this may be because it’s written as a straight transcript, and so there is no pacing. As a fast reader, the conversations went fast for me and felt unnatural. There may also have been something lost in translation. This is the type of book I think some people will love and relate to, for me it was just interesting.
