[2024] 多読/extensive reading challenge

Well, I finally finished 鹿の王 1 and you were right about that! The style of the author is definitely recognizable. It has also the advantage of featuring adult protagonists, including one who is (technically?) a father. Also ユナ is adorable; I loved the berry incident.
Still, it took some mental power to go through the book. I flew through the first part in one sitting, I was riveted to my seat, I was involved and bam, change of character. Also, how about we learn about the history of the people of said characters? Why not. Also political tensions. Woohoo… I don’t care, give me back the superhuman survivor. Eventually it got good when they started tracking the character from the first part, when suddenly change of characters. How about we learn about raising deers, now? That sounds like good fun. Actually, that’s sincere. I would not do that for a living, but that kind of connection to nature sounds very appealing, especially right now, but I digress.

Anyway, it was a very good book, and I loved it (despite the frustration I just vented). I will definitely buy the rest of the series. And a trip to BookOff sound imminent, considering I have now finished all my non-book club physical books. (I did go overboard, buying ahem 10 ebooks in the past few days, but let’s not think too much about that)
