liked it
bookshelves: in-english, japanese-authors, read-2010-to-2013
Read from June 01 to July 16, 2011

Some of the story is too vulgar, or I can say "too details".
I did not expected that part at all ha ha...
Well, I liked Midori character but I did not like Naoko character ... may be because she is mentally sick (???) not sure....
I wonder why the teenagers in this book end up by killed them self. (Kazuki and Naoko)
I like the part when Toru Watanabe visited Midori's father and about the cucumber.
