あん 👵🏻 - Week 2 (Intermediate Book Club)

I quite liked chapter 3. There’s something peaceful about the writing or the scene setting that just makes this a pleasure to read. I liked that we got some insight into his childhood which I don’t feel isn’t really touched on in the movie. I don’t remember this scene either, just the part where he throws the an-paste away and reconsiders it, but you aren’t told explicitly why.

Also, chapter 3 answered my first discussion question in the week 1 thread. Did you catch it?

I’ll post another set of questions in hopes it benefits someone:

Chapter 3 Discussion Questions
  1. Sentaro specifically states what holds him back from acknowledging Tokue, even going so far as throwing her handmade an-paste sample away initially. What is this reason and how do you feel about his reasoning (vs another reason such as her being too old)?

  2. Seeing Sentaro recall his childhood and weigh his options of hiring Tokue or not, how do you feel about his character so far? Is he likable? Is there potential for change? Or is he a manipulative character?
