3.5 stars.

One of the reasons I really enjoy reading Japanese fiction is that I find the stories are very different from what I usually read which I love. This was no exception. A really unusual story that emphasizes the importance of memories and how we forget things and move on easily. It has an Orwellian tone to it and it's absurd in places but it's laced with a quietness and love that kept drawing me to the story and if you, like me, really enjoy unusual stories, add this one to your list.
