The first book I read this year.

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

Plot-wise it’s bittersweet as always. I haven’t 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 I’d 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.
Denise Bücherwunderland
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)

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.

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

Jalan cerita yang menarik dan simple... aku suka cerita ni... mungkin akan ku cari versi movie nya...cuma sbb buku ni translation dari japanese ke malay so kadang2 ada rasa mcm terlampau direct translation sangat sampai baca pon pelik dan awkward.. mungkin sbb ini light novel jadi penterjemah cuba nak kekalkan bahasa yang simple dan mudah...anyway..i like this book..

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

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

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.

Versi novel ringan terbaik. Saya suka karya Makoto Shinkai kali ni. Feel dia memang lagi deep dari filem anime dan ada banyak babak yang diterangkan dengan lebih jelas dalam ni berbanding dengan filem.

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, c’était dur de le poser ! J’ai adoré ma lecture. L’histoire est passionnante et les décors font tout simplement rêver. Je recommande à 200% ! J’ai 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.

I’ve been waiting so long for the book to be published. Finally, the English version is here!!! I love both the anime and the book. Really want to watch the anime again even though I’ve already watched it twice in the theater. Can’t get enough of it!!

少了精美的畫面、背景音樂、主題曲插入曲
在享受上果然是輸了一截
雖然作者在後記提到電影版與小說版之間的媒體差異
使得小說版在文字上要加入各種比喻,來讓場景不輸給電影
也許對於想像力豐富的人,能以目前的文字在腦內生出畫面吧
對於像我想像力缺乏的人完全不夠啊
