The Briefcase (2001)

review 1: This book has made me crave tofu and sake. Not to mention all the other wonderful sounding food that Sensei and Tsukiko eat along the way. I like how this romance between the two of them centered around food and alcohol, the atmosphere of this novel was just very realistic, the c...

review 1: Anders als die beiden ersten Romane hat mich "Am Meer ist es wärmer" nicht ganz so sehr in die Geschichte eingesogen. Trotzdem ist es eine wunderschöne Beschreibung der Situation von Kei, die von ihrem Ehemann Rei völlig unerwartet und plötzlich verlassen wurde. Alleine, aber auc...

review 1: No se define en absoluto y la historia abarca un estado gris y destacable solo en ciertos pasajes. No me ha marcado el estilo narrativo de la autora, bastante absurdo, y en cuanto a sus personajes son poco creíbles. Pero es que las situaciones que plantea son más falsas e infumab...

review 1: Ah hmmmmm gosh. My colleague would and will love the descriptions of Japanese food, and the heroine is indeed uniquely quirky. I kind of liked the slow unfolding but hmmmmm honestly I got sick of the food descriptions and the endless drinking.Someone with an ear, eye and heart mo...

review 1: Beautifully written with finely drawn characters, it's a very moving love story of two isolated people who seem determined to thwart their efforts to be together. I found myself believing completely in the two characters and wanting them to come together; it didn't seem unlikely ...

review 1: Except for the dream sequence, I liked this very much. It's poignant and touching, and it made me very hungry. Loved the passage about how Tsukiko has conversations with herself. "I had a habit of acting as though I were having a conversation with someone beside me...to an invisi...

review 1: sí, lo confieso, me declaro una enamorada de la literatura japonesa. tenía desde hace tiempo pendiente este libro y al ver los comentarios tan variados, dudaba sobre él, y no sé si darle cinco estrellas es excesivo, pero me ha dejado una lágrima y eso dice mucho, quizás por su ti...
Am Meer ist es Wärmer (2010)

review 1: Kawakami writes with quite elegiac prose, painting not only a picturesque setting, but an entire world with a tangible emotion. The said "emotion" in this novel is difficult to define, but it is something including an isolated loneliness but also a desperation, as well as a super...

review 1: Mein zweites Buch von Kawakami hat mir auch gut gefallen. Wieder wendet er sich der Liebe zu und strickt eine Geschichte um die Liebeswirrungen des Trödelladens von Herrn Nakano. Sowohl er als auch seine Schwester und die beiden Angestellten müssen sich mit den Wirrungen und Miss...
