it was ok
bookshelves: lit-wall, kindling
Read in March, 2012

I don't know ... there was a time when I was pretty into Banana Yoshimoto, but I can't say this really did much for me. And I don't know if that's because I'm not in the same place or it's a matter of this not being the most engaging. I wasn't convinced by the "big reveal" and the quirks that I assume were supposed to engage me just made me shrug my shoulders. Overall, pretty much an "eh" response from me.

Kelly eeep. I bought this one when it came out but haven't touched it yet. I'll keep hold off. . .

Jenn Estepp Well, it definitely won't take you long when you get to it. I wonder if I would've felt differently if I'd been in a different mood? Her writing is so atmospheric, that if you're not feeling it you should probably wait until you are.
