At bothered me tho but I haven t managed to connect with these characters or being invested in the story at any time Maybe I ve already passed that time in which you think that if you lose a loved one you won t be able to live without them or maybe I ve become practical over the years The parts that I liked the most are those that make references to mourning and loss in a general way and in
which philosophical and moral uestions are raised about the loss ofphilosophical and moral uestions are raised about the loss of important person in your life Thus I was invested because I irremediably remembered my grandma s death If it were been the story of by example some parents facing the death of their daughter I know that I d have been touched and got emotional but in the end it s a teenage story that I found little credibleAll in all I d recommend it if you like tender love stories or if you want to give a try to one of the most famous novels of recent times in JapanP S I m not English so if you see any mistakes let me know so I can correct them please Es una historia tierna y un libro bonito pero no me ha llegado a emocionar S ue si lo hubiese le do siendo adolescente con 14 15 a os lo hubiese disfrutado much simo porue es una historia de amor y p rdida entre adolescentes con sentimientos muy puros y hay di logos maravillosos especialmente entre Sakutar y su abuelo Desde el inicio de la historia sabemos c mo va a terminar no es algo ue me haya molestado la verdad pero no he llegado a conectar con estos personajes en ning n momento uiz s ya he pasado esa poca en la ue piensas ue si pierdes a un ser uerido no vas a ser capaz de rehacer tu vida o uiz s me he vuelto pr ctica con los a os Las partes "ue me han gustado son las ue hacen mayor referencia al duelo y "me han gustado son las ue hacen mayor referencia al duelo y p rdida de forma general y donde se plantean cuestiones de tipo filos fico y moral sobre la p rdida de una persona importante en tu vida Ah s conect porue me acord irremediablemente de mi abuela Si fuera la visi n de por ejemplo unos padres frente a la muerte de su hija s ue hubiese conectado m s con la historia pero no deja de ser una historia adolescente ue me ha parecido poco cre bleCon todo os la recomendar a si os gustan las historias tiernas de amor o si os apetece darle una oportunidad a una de las novelas m s famosas de los ltimos tiempos en Jap n If the days won t allow us to see each other memories willand if my eyes can t see you my heart will never forget you AsiF I didn t really know what to expect when I borrowed this from the library as I missed the hype the first time round when the book was published 15 years ago and the blurb is a bit opaue so at the risk of repeating the obvious let me say this it s a tearjerker of a love story about high school lovers one of whom dies of a nasty disease This is not a spoiler by the way we know this within a page or two of the first chapter What makes it compelling is the development of the love between the two against such a tragic end It s the wreck on the highway that we John Dollar just can t help slowing down for as we passust to see what it was all about and piece together a narrative that makes sense of young love life and death Reminiscent of Haruki Murakami s Norwegian Wood but dare I say it better Moving compelling and lingers long after the last pageDownload my starter library for free here and receive my monthly newsletter with book recommendations galore for the Japanophilecrime fictionEnglish as a foreign language teacher in.
