A light and serious book at the same time. A pofondor not attends at Murakami (Ryu). A love history between a photograph and an actress. Third carchters Takéo plays the rôle of chœur like in greek tragedy. Curiously, Moroke resembles a little to Juliette,the heroin of my book. All the actresses are a little crazy.

Les premiers chapitres installent une ambiance qui évoque les films de Wong Kar Wai. Pas étonnant d'ailleurs que le roman Raffles Hotel ait été écrit par Murakami Ryu en même temps qu'il tournait le film... son écriture très cinématographique emporte le lecteur dans un monde onirique où la réalité même des personnages peut être mise en doute.

Court livre assez sympa, même si j'avoue que j'ai rien capté la fin..

Bien écrit, l'ambiance particulière est très bien campée.
Cependant il ne se passe rien, je me suis ennuyée à lire ce livre pourtant court.
Je n'aime pas ce style / cette tendance de certains auteurs de vouloir démontrer la vacuité de notre mode de vie à travers des exemples de personne sans personnalité, sans caractère, juste perdus et vides.
