Maybe 2.5 bacause all the tears shed deserves at least one star and a half.

Grey. That’s the color that defines this book to me, and my mood after reading it. Grey. Not the oranges and reds I was expecting. Not even the feared black darkening it all. Just grey. And that, let me tell you, it’s pure disappointment. *sighs in frustration*

The most important highlight about my reading it’s that I was crying from page two. TWO!!!!! Yes, I’m a softie but still...
The thing is that I was a mess at the en

Estoy molesta. Muy, pero muy molesta. Esperaba CUALQUIER cosa menos esto. Aaarrggh, ¿por qué me hicieron creer que se trataba de una simple ―épica― historia de amor? ¿Por qué alguien no se molestó en prevenirme de que la historia iba en realidad sobre el luto de un adolescente? Vamos, que no les estoy arruinando nada. Apenas abran el libro se enterarán de que ella está muerta.

El que me haya enterado a la primera del final es lo primero que me molestó de la historia. O sea, hay un montón de libro

Tôi thường gạt phăng đi ham muốn đọc một quyển sách nếu không cảm thấy bị thu hút bởi bìa mới so với bìa cũ. Có thể kể đến Giết con chim nhại, Vĩnh biệt Tugumi, Nhím thanh lịch... làm ví dụ. Socrates in love suýt bị liệt vào danh sách này. Tôi tưởng ấn bản mình sở hữu là bìa cũ và bìa tôi ghét đến không thèm mua sách đọc là tái bản. Nhưng hóa ra tôi vớ phải quyển mất áo khoác.

Es un libro bonito. A mi me gustó. Me encantaban las partes donde la relación de los personajes era narrada. Era muy romántico y estúpido a la vez. Un tanto idílico tal vez. De pronto me llegó a enganchar por aquello de que siempre me han gustado las relaciones chapadas a la antigua, en las que los novios pueden durar años juntos antes de casarse y nadie dice nada. No lo sé. Me gustó, pero hubieron partes que pienso fueron innecesarias. Me mantuve expectante hasta el final. Le doy cuatro estrell ...more

Tre stelle e mezzo. Uscito prima dell'esplosione del trend "love stories strappalacrime di adolescenti malati o agonizzanti per altri motivi", questo romanzo giapponese affronta il tema con una delicatezza che ho apprezzato molto. Non ci sono quegli elementi forzati che di solito mi danno fastidio in questo genere, non c'è bisogno di fare sensazione: ci sono due ragazzi che prima sono amici, poi innamorati, e che affrontano qualcosa di enorme e devastante senza doverla buttare in drammah.

Si quieres leer una historia de amor dramática, sentimental y hermosa, debes de leer este libro. Es fantástico, trágico, lo mejor es que ya te predisponen a la tragedia. Me encanto la manera en la que se narra en primera persona, sientes y vives todo lo que el personaje está viviendo. Muy conmovedor, y llore más de una vez con sus páginas. Muy fácil de leer, muy especial y reflexivo.

No lloré con Titanic, ni The Notebook. No lloré con Marley y Yo, ni con My sister's keeper. Generalmente no lloro con NADA —en mi casa suelen decir que no tengo corazón— pero como lloré con esto.

¿Por qué los japoneses insisten en destruir mi corazón?

3.5/5

No puedo creer que lo terminé. En varios momentos sentía la necesidad de dejarlo y no volverlo a retomar.

No me mal entiendan, el libro es hermoso, divertido en partes, muy dulce, con personajes agradables y reflexivos pero me pareció muy tedioso de leer.

Long enough to be a well-told story, yet short enough for readers not to fall asleep. I intentionally took the book from my roommate's bookshelf as a type of sleeping pill when the computer was not available, keeping in mind the idea that "this is gonna another stupid love story". I even kept calling it "Socrates in Hell" as my personal habit of sarcasm for love tends to grow years after years.

The book turned out to be great! In terms of small details, Katayama's story telling is unbelievable, c

(4.5) Es un libro PRECIOSO. Se lee en un suspiro, engancha a pesar de tener un ritmo lento, y la prosa del autor, siendo más poética de lo que podríamos imaginar, nos enamora creándonos un aluvión de sentimientos en cada página. Una maravilla que recomiendo a todo el mundo.

Un libro con una historia llena de amor, fuerza y ternura, con una pluma delicada y filosófica, Katayama consigue evocar una relación pura, dulce y triste.
MadameMelli
In Das Gewicht des Glücks geht es um Sakutaro und Aki, wie sie sich kennen und lieben lernen. Beide sind noch sehr jung, als sie sich kennenlernen, um die 15 Jahre alt. Sie sind gemeinsam im Schülerkomitee und lange Zeit ist Sakutaro nicht einmal bewusst, dass er in sie verliebt ist.

Von Anfang an hat die Geschichte eine traurige Grundstimmung. Vor allem auf den ersten Seiten merkt man, dass etwas schlimmes passiert sein muss, das zwei Menschen auseinander gerissen hat. Obwohl die Charaktere so

I LOVED THIS. LIKE WOW.

Okay so I binge read this in 1 day obviously, and I loved it.

We follow "Saku-chan" who is a teenage boy, in love with his best friend since childhood, Aki. You know from the very beginning that Aki has recently died. The author then takes you through their life together, from the moment the two met, up until Aki's passing. This story was beautiful, and extremely relateable on a lot of aspects. It brought up a lot of great conversations too such as faith (is there

I didn't really know what to expect when I borrowed this from the library as I missed the hype the first time round when the book was published 15 years ago, and the blurb is a bit opaque... so at the risk of repeating the obvious let me say this: it's a tearjerker of a love story about high school lovers, one of whom dies of a nasty disease. This is not a spoiler, by the way, we know this within a page or two of the first chapter. What makes it compelling is the development of the love between ...more

Cốt truyện, theo ý kiến cá nhân, không có gì đặc biệt, hai học sinh học cùng nhau cấp 2, rồi lên cấp 3 yêu nhau. Bất hạnh ập xuống, người con gái bị mắc bệnh máu trắng (khá tương đồng với nhiều phim truyền hình Hàn Quốc :D). Người con trai cô độc nhớ mong cô gái. Hết.

Điều hấp dẫn để t vẫn đánh giá truyện này 2 sao là bởi cách tác giả xây dựng hình tượng nhân vật chính, cụ thể là theo mình ở đây là nhân vật nam. Từ một đứa trẻ con (hê hê, học sinh lớp 8 với con giai vẫn là trẻ con nhở) đến một n

¡De qué manera tan veloz, tan trágica, transcurría el tiempo! La felicidad era como aquellas nubes que cambiaban de apariencia a cada instante. Brillaban doradas, o se teñían de gris, sin permanecer más que un momento en el mismo estado. Las horas más radiantes pasan de largo veloces, como un capricho o como una broma.
Me extrañó muchísimo que me gustara esta novela. Como no soy amante de estas historias románticas que te hacen (supuestamente) llorar a mares, me sorprendió que me gustara. Piens

Dos estrellas xD puede parecer que no me gustó porque hay libros que no me han gustado mucho y que les he dado dos estrellas pero la verdad no es el caso. Lo que pasa es que no me dio ni frío ni calor D: pero no lo encontré malo. Está lleno de momentos y frases para el recuerdo, aprendizajes y más cosas que lo hacen ser el éxito que es ~ el tema es que no me hizo sentir tanto como a todo el mundo ._. obvio que sentí pena y me cayó la lagrimita un par de veces pero no fue tanto, no sé.

Quyển này nếu được bình phẩm, mình mạn phép cho rằng nó là một bước đệm cho chủ nghĩa hậu hiện đại kiểu Murakamis - Ryu, Haruki, hay kiểu Banana Yoshimoto/Yamada Amy.

Hai nhân vật chính chủ chốt của câu chuyện từa tựa như đang tượng trưng cho tinh thần của cả giới trẻ Nhật thời bấy giờ - xôn xao, náo động, ồn ào, giữa những làn sóng phản đối và khiêu khích đó là một bộ phận giới trẻ muốn tìm về những cảm giác bình yên ban sơ của ái tình - những cuộc "vượt rào", những cuộc "phiêu lưu" ra khỏi chố

Decepción mayúscula la que me ha supuesto este libro. Historia normalita, mas vista que el tebeo y, que, bajo mi punto de vista, tampoco está contada con una especial sensibilidad.
En fin, prescindible y olvidable, el grito de amor se queda en un mero bostezo de hastio.

Que ganas de volver a ser adolescente y enamorarse de la manera en que lo hicieron Sakutaro y Aki. El final te lo dicen desde un principio, pese a eso, no pierde el encanto y de todas formas quieres tener un final feliz en la última hoja.

Es posible que sí lo tenga, de una manera inesperada y liberadora. Una felicidad a la japonesa.

Một trong những thói quen mua sách của tôi là chọn lấy quyển nào có bìa đẹp. Socrates in love là cuốn sách có bìa đẹp nhất mà tôi thấy trong lần lượn phố mua sách của mình cách đây hơn một năm. Hình hai cô cậu học sinh được trình bày bằng hai màu đen trắng giản dị cùng với mặt trời đỏ nổi trên nền bìa trắng giống cờ Nhật khiến tôi thích thú. Quả thật, cả về hình thức lẫn nội dung, quyển sách đã thu hút tôi cho đến tận những trang cuối cùng.

Now, in a world without Aki, Saku struggles to let go as he lingers in the past, trapped in his own beloved memory of Aki.

This books, in my opinion, might be the precedent of modern realistic YA fict. In fact, I can say this book is the Japanese counterpart of Green's The Fault is in Our Star. A sick, yet optimistic girl? Check. A wish to visit other country? Check. A boyfriend who tries his hard to make the wish come true? Check. A philosophical and existential conversation performed by two teenagers? Check, check, check.

Kitayama's writing itself is inarguably enjoyable (I read the translated version, though). It
