    3. Man, oh man, this is one of those crushingly beautiful novels that just flattens the reader It s a dogged, spiritual political crisis set into words, a simple exercise in the vagaries and tumultuous upheavals of human nature writ large.Superficially, it s about the early months of the Korean War when the South made some considerable gains and captured Pyongyang This has little to do with anything, though the Chinese advance to recapture the capital later adds a degree of tension to the novel s f [...]

    4. Richard E Kim s The Martyred was published to great sales and acclaim in 1964 It dominated the bestseller list, earned comparisons to Camus and Dostoevsky, and boasted blurbs from Pearl S Buck and Philip Roth Kim was born in what is now North Korea in the 1930s, in the waning days of Japanese domination of the peninsula, and he fought on the side of the south during the Korean War In 1955, he came to the U.S and studied history, political science, writing, and Asian languages and literatures at [...]

    6. Kim keeps one s interest all the way through this well thought out tale His writing, like Joseph Conrad s is particularly noteworthy since English isn t his first language.

    7. Richard E Kim D nde est la verdad No debemos confundir Los m rtires de Pyongyang con una novela negra Cierto que el g nero ampl a sus l mites y que cada vez entran cosas m s incre bles, al calor de las modas o las circunstancias, pero la novela de Richard E Kim cumple cincuenta a os y est tan cerca del g nero negro como del b lico, aunque en realidad all donde se instala es en el drama existencial y el misterio de Dios Porque s , en cierto modo, esta es una novela negra sobre la b squeda de un a [...]

    8. How wonderful to have this book back in print It was a best seller in 1964, but then disappeared like a rock under the waves thereafter.The reasons are several, and the introduction explains to a new generation of readers some of the how and why.The book bears a dedication to Albert Camus, and is clearly in the style of his novels of the 1950s that raised so many philisophical and moral questions.Kim s book disappeared because as the American involvement in Vietnam deepened, Korea became all the [...]

    9. This book was one of the ones I read during my vacation in the last two weeks I m so glad I took seriously the recommendation to read it It s a moving tale of the kinds of choices Christians are still forced to make in war zones confess Christ and die or deny Christ and live But beyond that, it s a tale of grace, mercy, love and the hope that keeps us all going.This volume also contains two excellent introductory essays, giving Richard Kim s place in the history of Korean American letters I conf [...]

    10. Unhesitantly, THE MARTYRED is one of the greatest war stories I have read Philip Roth nails it on the head with the passion of the book is perpetually beating up against its seemingly barren surface That s exactly it Through the ruins, through the quiet snow, the characters hearts beat and struggle on At once a sorrowful ode to how atheists and the religious survive the absurd meaninglessness of war, a treatise on how doubt makes us human, and a beautiful commentary on propaganda I definitely re [...]

    11. This book blew my mind I m amazed it is out of print and hasn t been rescued by Asian American literary studies A tautly written and absolutely cutting investigation into the questions of morality, humanity, justice, and truth set in the context of a proxy war only the proxies have their own demons to battle, as well.

    12. Who is the martyr and who is the brtrayer I read this book at least three times once in Korean, one time in Korea translated by Edward Kim himself then in original English Every time I read, one thing strikes me, What is truth What do we know about it

    13. Rate 1 2I m not sure it s because I know about the Korean War I was born and raised in Korea for quite awhile but this book made me think a lot

    14. Brilliant A novel with a complex thought provoking look at the role of religion in the crises of the Korean War.
