Reading Update: 9月17日〜21日
Just a brief update. My guests left today, so I can finally return to long bouts of reading! While they were here, I did my best to keep the streak alive. That tended to mean that I’d read a page or two of 野崎くん before passing out from exhaustion. Two characters (瀬尾 and 若松) are currently hanging out at the movies. 瀬尾 is such a chaotic character, which helps keep things entertaining.
I finished reading Week 1 of 授乳 today! It’s still incredibly difficult for me to get the gist of after one read through. I’m kind of glad that I decided to go with my “read each page twice” system when it comes to book club books, because one read through just doesn’t provide enough clarity for me. All that’s happened so far is that our MC, 直子, has a tutor that she doesn’t actually need. Her mother’s giving off suspicious vibes, and her tutor is on the odd side, but 直子 seems comfortable around him. From the only dialogue between them, we learn that talking isn’t something he’s keen on, and I got a good laugh out of just how to the point his responses are.
@jhol613 was kind enough to inform me that this is probably the most difficult 村田 story the club has read together, so…here’s to another few weeks of painfully trying to understand what’s happening.
