Unique

Not the most brilliant criminal but definitely not what I expected. This book is an interesting dive into another time and another culture that keeps you guessing as things unfold.

NAIVELY ODD

It's hard to like or dislike this novel because it is so naive. It's sort of a pastiche of crime/mystery/suspense plots and situations against a japanese background decorated with lots of adjectives like 'thrilling' 'sinister' 'dark' 'forbidding' 'forboding' 'surprising' but never ever actually gets you intrigued or involved. It's almost YA in style but not. I haven't been able to finish it - just cant build any momentum...

I really wanted to like this.

I really struggled with this. It reads like a shopping list, very blunt and with no flair. I found myself tuning out a lot and it was just boring to listen to.

Classic tale

Reluctance was overcome when the character story reached over to me as a crime novel deeply within the Japanese tradition, if not a forerunner of it, the complications are to be wondered at.
