    It seems like a nice read, a bit out of the genres that I enjoy, but something I’d love to experiment with 🙂

  • I have to say I don’t remember which Japanese author it was but I read a supposedly award winning book by one and it pretty much played out exactly how you described… Repetitive, plot holes, even the vague open ending at the most inopportune time.

    • Most of them are this way. May be, this is how their literature is.

  • I haven’t read too many Japanese authors but this one sounds rather puzzling. The bit about the cat sounds interesting.

  • I love cats. But since you mention that the cat doesn’t enjoy majority of the volume, I’ll give this one a pass.

    I have books from Japan and having witnessed their culture , i am able to relate with their obsession with cats

  • This is my first introduction to a Japanese novella, seems interesting writing. Will try a few now
