About this deal

It made me happy to think that because I had been moved by that same passage too, I was now connected to that stranger. Pasa un poco eso con Jinbocho, ese barrio lleno de librerías (que ya pongo como objetivo de vida visitarlo algún día), también con Morisaki, esa librería llena de libros por todas partes o el monte donde sus protagonistas viajan para desconectar de la ciudad. I am currently editing my first YA novel which I hope to be able to share with you all in the future.

Algo que obviamente no esperaba, ya que a pesar de saber que no iba a ser un libro inolvidable tenía el convencimiento de que encontraría una historia “feel good”, algo agradable y ligero para disfrutar. Además de una adquisición perfecta para conmemorar el Marzo asiático, esta obra es un bucólico paréntesis del torbellino urbano que nos rodea. Satoshi Yagisawa’s debut novel, first published in 2010, won the Chiyoda Literature Prize and was later turned into a film. Ciò nonostante, il ricordo di quelle giornate è ormai parte di me perché è proprio lì che la mia vita, la mia vera vita, è cominciata.

La cosa più bella di questo libro sono le descrizione del quartiere Jinbōchō, pieno di librerie nuove e antiche. Nên đặc trưng của văn chương Nhật Bản là miêu tả những cảm tình lảng bảng mơ hồ, những cảm xúc chưa thể gọi thành tên, những không gian bên trong và bên ngoài con người đẹp một cách tinh tế, lạ lùng, khó nắm bắt. It was first published in Japan in 2010, the sequel the following year Morisaki Shoten No Hibi, a hit Japanese movie based on the book, was released in 2010 to great acclaim. The prose is simple yet eloquent, like a soothing melody that lingers in your mind long after you've turned the last page. And as summer fades to autumn, Satoru and Takako discover they have more in common than they first thought.

As the characters navigate the ups and downs of life, their journeys are intertwined with the books they read and recommend, resulting in a brilliant tapestry of self-discovery. Sensitive topics like dealing with heartbreak, boredom, loneliness were handled so well and again it was not that it was being preachy. Y encima, no podía faltar el drama metido con calzador que encontraremos al final y el nacimiento de un amor que no veíamos venir (nótese la ironía).Un lugar de paz, donde el tiempo parece detenerse y suceden conversaciones cultas e interesantes sobre literatura japonesa entre personajes inolvidables. As summer fades to autumn, Satoru and Takako discover they have more in common than they first thought. Es un poco lo que pasa con Takako, que pese a que de niña quería y admiraba a su tío, la adolescencia rompió esa imagen que tenia sobre él, sin embargo, acaba encontrando en él y sobre todo en la librería Morisaki el consuelo que necesita, ese algo al que aferrarse para volver a salir a flote. La trama è molto semplice e lineare, senza grandi colpi di scena, ma compensa questa mancanza con uno stile delicato e armonioso. I did want a bit more depth to the story, but for what it was this was a highly enjoyable comforting read that I'd recommend to book lovers everywhere.

Không bàn đến cốt truyện hay nhân vật nhiều đâu, với mình thì đây đúng chính xác là một cuốn sách chữa lành. Sendo um livro tão pequeno, é natural que a história não seja incrivelmente bem explorada, mas haveria espaço para o fazer, porque as temáticas são interessantes. Tra clienti abituali, amicizie inaspettate e amori sfuggenti, la placida routine instaurata dai due verrà sconvolta dal ritorno della moglie di Satoru, sparita nel nulla diversi anni prima.Dopo aver lasciato il lavoro, suo zio Satoru la inviterà a passare qualche tempo nella libreria di famiglia per capire cosa fare della sua vita. No matter where you go, or how many books you read, you still know nothing, you haven’t seen anything.
