Definitivamente... sorprendente.

Hoy mismo hablaba en mi Instagram TV de las novelas que de primeras juzgas pensando que no te van a gustar, y este es un claro ejemplo de ello.

Weathering With You es la adaptación a novela de la película homónima, ambas escritas por Shinkai (reconocido director por su obra Your Name). En una nota al final del libro habla sobre cómo finalizó antes la escritura de la novela que el propio guion de la película, por lo que se intuye que, quizá, la novela tenga más

The first book I read this year.

Novel-wise, I personally think this is one of Shinkais best works. Theres something so warm and heartfelt about it, and I feel connected to the characters more intimately compared to Your Name.

Plot-wise its bittersweet as always. I havent seen the movie (missed the Japanese version when it came out in theatres) but would love a chance to catch the American version if it ever gets released somewhere. But then again, I know Id love it as much as I love all of

Form yang berlainan (layar perak dan novel), feel yang sama.

3 bintang sebab terjemahannya rasa "off" sikit.

Ich könnte mir gut vorstellen, dass dieses Buch 5 Sterne bekommt sobald ich den Film gesehen habe 😄.
Nach Your Name waren meine Erwartungen natürlich sehr hoch, aber die Geschichte zu Weathering with you hat mir auch sehr gut gefallen. Nur die verschiedenen POV's haben es mir manchmal etwas schwer gemacht, da diese nicht mit dem jeweiligen Namen gekennzeichnet sind 😅. Ansonsten war es wirklich toll!

Non ho avuto occasione di andare a vedere "Weathering With You" al cinema, quindi quando a Natale mi é stato regalato il libro ero emozionatissima di conoscere finalmente la storia! Il libro é scorrevolissimo e si legge tutto d'un fiato. La narrazione é molto semplice ma efficace. La storia é davvero particolare e davvero impossibile da poter spiegare per quanto sia surreale ma, per molti aspetti, ricorda tantissimo "Your Name". Per questo motivo, non definirei questa nuova storia ...more
I think wordings below might help you get some main ideas of this romantic fantasy story from Makoto Shinkai.

"...มนุษยเรานันใชตนเองเปนบรรทัดฐานเพือดำเนินชีวิตตอไป...ชักนำตัวตนของตัวเองใหเขาใกลสิงซึงคลาย 'ความถูกตอง' ของโลก เมือเปนเชนนันแลวจึงวางใจ...ทวาการทำเชนนันจะทำใหเราหลงลืมขอบเขตความถูกตองของโลกและความจริงในใจของเราไปทีละนอย..." (โนดะ โยจิโร, ปุณฑริกา นภธราดล (แปล), น.264-265)

As a novel, this book is much better than your name. Like a million times better. The characters are more fleshed out, motivations are a bit clearer here, and I think the story is just overall more compelling. The afterward and essay both have reduced me to tears.

As a movie, I still think your name. is just slightly better (but probably because I've seen it more times).

Basically, read this book. Have Makoto Shinkai write and direct your life because at least you'll have a happy ending despite

Ein modernes Märchen, das mich in seinen Bann ziehen konnte, mich aber letztendlich nicht zu 100% überzeugt hat. Irgendwie hat mir was in der Story gefehlt...Die Verfilmung würde ich jedoch trotzdem gerne sehen, da die Bilder bestimmt toll sind.

It's Makoto Shinkai alright and with an actual ending to it unlike Your Name FYI I loved Your Name. It's just too great

After hearing recommendation after recommendation for Makoto Shinkai's latest novel WEATHERING WITH YOU, I finally decided to buy the book off of Amazon.

And let me tell you, I was HOOKED from page one.

Shinkai has an addictive and beautiful way of storytelling, and I found myself wanting to finish this read in one sitting. However, because of life, I had to hold back on that need.

This book follows four characters. Don't let that intimidate you! It doesn't actively focus on all four, but it makes

In questo romanzo seguiamo le vicende di Hodaka, giovane liceale che decide di fuggire di casa per andare a vivere a Tokyo. Nella capitale incontrerà chi gli offrirà un lavoro, e Hina, una ragazza che si scoprirà avere un potere straordinario.
Nonostante le ottime premesse e la promessa di una valanga di feels, dopo quella meraviglia di Your Name, questa volta non sono rimasta particolarmente colpita.
Gli elementi positivi che mi sento di citare sono, indubbiamente lo stile inconfondibile di

Ich habe damals "Your Name." von Makoto Shinkai gelesen und war hin und weg. Nicht nur von der Verfilmung, sondern auch vom Roman. Daher wollte ich unbedingt "Weathering with you" auch noch lesen und was soll ich sagen? Er war toll.

4.5 stars for this gorgeous novel.

I have believed for a long time that words can express our feelings more directly and precisely, which definitely is proved in this novel. I had watched the movie, 天気の子 (Weathering With You) twice, and I was touched with a doubt because I had cried twice as well. After reading this novel, I didn't cry but I realized this novel concludes more touching details that I didn't find out in the movie. Although I think Director Shinkai wrote the novel, 言の葉の庭 (The Garden

The bad: I'm reading the novel without having watched the movie, which on one hand probably doesn't give me the context others might have, but on the other hand might also allow me to have a less biased view. Although the rich and beautiful descriptions of Tokyo life and of the protagonist's shenanigans are interesting enough, the plot is fairly simple and the book isn't remarkable by any means - just good enough.

The good: the best part of the book are definitely the vivid and colorful

This book is a great story on its own and even better when you see the movie. To make up for the visual elements from the movie, perspectives from the other characters are added. This helps the novel keep the same level of emotion that the movie brings. Don't really know how to describe the book, but I highly recommend it.

I like the plot alot and also that it doesn't limit the POVs. But sometimes I get confused with whom was whom.

The writing was beautiful. I like how straightforward it is, love the characters, and how engaging the current setting was. It was a page turner for me. Overall it was heartwarming.

Mon premier coup de cœur de 2020 !

Un livre passionnant, un peu long à démarrer mais ensuite, cétait dur de le poser ! Jai adoré ma lecture. Lhistoire est passionnante et les décors font tout simplement rêver. Je recommande à 200% ! Jai hâte de regarder le film

It fleshed out the story a little better than the movie. The first person perspective helped to justify a lot of things in the story a lot better.

A very decent follow up to Your Name. Doesn't hit you in the chest with emotion as often as Your Name did, but is still very good.

Reading this really feels like a "novel version of an animated movie", as mentioned in the afterword.
And I did not like it but I am hopeful that the animated movie is actually better.
