With this best of all introductions: Welcome to Moonlight Shadow week 1!
Here is the final and ultimate week! Enjoy
Now that people are finishing the book, I think it’s a good point to ask everybody to rate it (where 5 is excellent and 1 is terrible):
Also, if you’d like to discuss the book as a whole or share your thoughts and impressions, please feel free!
To give a good example, I’ll go first
I really loved this book and the way the author carefully drew the characters and unfolded the two stories. Also I liked how she unveiled more of them by frequently switching into the past, and I usually found it easy to follow (I remember having more trouble with other authors, but maybe this just shows that I’ve improved my reading skills). What I often struggled with was that although I felt I understood all the words and grammar of a sentence, I still couldn’t get at the true meaning of it - it seemed like there was another (maybe more philosophical?) layer of meaning on top of the sentence that is still out of my reach. I think this is definitely a book that I’d like to reread in a couple of years’ time.
The other day, I bumped into an article about the Joumon period, and I figured I’d leave a link here in case anybody wants to deepen their knowledge in that respect
Isn’t Jomon more related to Konbini than to Kitchen?
Oh, dang! There you got me
Aw man, was checking out this thread to see if I might give キッチン a try and that post of @NicoleRauch’s was its most glowing recommendation yet in my mind!
