N the centre of their own drama and on the edges of many othersA tender and affecting exploration of the mystery that lurks in the ordinary this novel traces the seemingly imperceptible threads that weave together a community and the knots that bind us to one another. .
He characters are all so interesting in a uiet uirky never fully revealed way The two younger ones are in a state of almost constant bewilderment about themselves each other and everyone else around them Plot spoiler uh oh wait not needed There is no plot y all Just read it anyway Who needs plots I hate em myself A contemporary Japanese novel written by an award winning female writerAs ever I finished the novel feeling somewhat baffled such is the nature of Japanese fiction obliue dreamlike enigmatic subtle I enjoyed the book but If you want to dip your toes into the strange waters of Japanese fiction ive this one a tryThe characters are very engaging this much I can say And there characters are very engaging this much I can say And there passages where a trivial daily detail is described beautifully a sort of verbal still life perhaps I ve said enough Read it for yourself I loved Strange Weather in Tokyo but found this book by the same author uite appalling Dull aimless the characters irritating it was a real chore to et to the end Haven t been this disappointed for uite a while I think I expected something whimsical maybe even a hint of magical realism in this from the way it s described But it s a pretty plain story told by a pretty plain narrator in fact she has virtually no personality which is probably why I could never really PMS get into it It s a uiet story about a woman who works in a second hand shop under the employment of a sort of eccentric playboy Mr Nakano She s in love with her co worker friends with her boss s sister andenerally a pretty uninteresting person I didn t hate this but wouldn t necessarily recommend It Sweet Story With Sweet story with The Two of Swords great setting butot kind of repetitive Check out reviews Perspective of a WriterThe Nakano Thrift Shop is home to many secrets found in repetitive Check out reviews Perspective of a WriterThe Nakano Thrift Shop is home to many secrets found in customers staff and many objects Hitomi the inexperienced young woman who works the register at Mr Nakano s thrift shop has fallen for her coworker the oddly reserved Takeo Unsure of how to attract his attention she seeks advice from her employer s sister MasayoThe short reviewThis was an odd and unexpected read for me I kind of expected the sweetness of Sweet Bean Paste and the wonderful humor of Convenience Store Woman both written by Japanese authors and translated into English like The Nakano Thrift Shop What I found was a socially awkward slice of life romance between two 20 year olds filled with the life of the customers and owners Slice of life is uite popular in Japan and this was that and so much It really Sinfully Damaged (Master Mistress, gives you a sense of the everyday in Japan for the common person Hitomi and Takeo are both awkward people who act like characters from the latest YA high school romance except they are a LOT older NOT in college and dealing with adulting The pacing is uite slow and you aren t sure what the point is though I will tell you up front it s totally a romance I found it charming puzzling dreamy awkward challenging and ultimately fascinating it ended in a satisfying way even though i was doubtful at times I wouldet there Romance readers who are looking for something a little different or readers who enjoy culture and especially Japanese slice of life will find lots to explore here Cover Title ABCs of Baseball grade CI m not a total fan of this cover or really any of the covers I think a vector drawing of the front of the thrift store would have worked better A photograph of a neighborhood would have also sufficed This red monstrosity did attract my eye doing its job and for that I amrateful but its too historical Asia when that has nothing to do with the storyWhat did The Nakano Thrift Shop say about Japan Love is a VERY confusing state of affairsThis romance is like no roma. Her fellow employee Takeo a shy but charming young man And every day customers from the neighbourhood pass in and out as curios are bought and sold each one containing its own surprising story When Hitomi and Takeo begin to fall for one another they find themselves On a suburban street in Tokyo lies a uaint little shop called The Nakano Thrift Shop that is home for all the nick nacks you could ever want But while what can be found inside is wondrous it is the lives of those that work there that is the most fascinating The store s owner Mr Nakano for one is on his 3rd marriage has 3 children and spends his time working and spending time with his lovers or as he calls them the Bank His sister spends his time working and spending time with his lovers or as he calls them the Bank His sister is also a hopeless romantic who think she has found love in her new beau Maruyama Recently hired Hitomi on the other hands spends awkward moments advancing and retreating in love with fellow employee TakeoThe roup of them SHARE A BOND BUILT ON THEIR a bond built on their and a subtle loyalty the store The narrator Hitomi is naive and almost transcendental as she interprets the relationships around her It is these expositions by Hitomi that is the meat of the story along with the dreamy look at contemporary Japanese life with the smells of the food to the customs interlocking brilliantly This is a story that will ently embrace you and Taken By the Sheriff the Deputy Too! guide you along an enchanting journey of emotion that is both therapeutic and divine Withentle humor and a lot of heart The Nakano Thrift Shop is well worth a read for anyone not put off by a slow read and want s to be swept away Enjoyed this a bit than Strange Weather in Tokyo Another interesting slice of life type book I swear reading translated works allows you insight into stuff you never thought you needed insight in The way some words defy direct translations into other languages How you need a string of sentences to convey what that one word actually means As I read it over the work week though I may have missed a lot of thingsuotable uotes as I tend to skim on the surface and my inner monologue sometimes Kentucky Grandmothers gets away before my brain manages to catch up to what isoing on Anyway I think Japanese books have a very subtle touch to them vague and somewhat do I dare say it wishy washy in parts I think I have mentioned it before that I am a big fan of slice of life anime how mundane everyday things and tasks somehow take on a light airy almost dreamlike weight to themIf you don t have the heart to appreciate it you will probably find it really pointless boring drollBut overall I like it and will probably continue to seek out of the same A very uiet simple novel about the everyday Full review HERE but for now I will just say that this is book is just SO JAPANESE I adore this writer She is appealing in a very individualistic particular introverted Japanese way that is reminiscent of Murakami s works yet entirely and uniuely her own I mention Murakami only because the authors share enough similarity in their character types and their descriptions of the small mundane rituals of daily life that it deserves an NB if you love Murakami s uirky the small mundane rituals of daily life that it deserves an NB if you love Murakami s uirky and his descriptions of cooking simple meals and having nice long talks you will find much to love about Kawakami Otherwise her writing will probably make you want to toss your book into a pot of boiling spaghetti as you cook your nice simple meal This is only the second book I ve read of Kawakami s the first being Strange Weather in Tokyo and I am looking forward to reading all of those which have been translated into English I have just begun Manazuru too This one is a simple coming of age story about a young Japanese woman who works at at thrift shop and the three people who share her life during this time Takeo her young co worker for whom she develops a passion Mr Nakano the philosophical and philandering shop owner and Masayo Mr Nakano s sister who is a charming and rather endearing mediocre artist When Hitomi takes a job on the cash register of a neighbourhood thrift store she finds herself drawn into a very idiosyncratic community There is Mr Nakano an enigmatic ladies' man with several ex wives; Masayo Mr Nakano's sister an artist who has never married; and.
