Asleep ties together three novellas through the themes of love, sleep, and death. While each story has a distinct plot, it is interesting how the stories share a similar atmosphere. Much like Yoshimoto Banana’s other works, the novel feels ‘young’ and is a very interesting insight to the minds of trouble ones in Japan’s younger generation. Her writing distinctly tells three different stories that seem so unique yet so alike. Like her other writing, Asleep is a bit quirky. I recommend reading with an open imagination.
