Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami

Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thought this book was going to be cool and quirky. I was half right.

Strange Weather in Tokyo falls into the category of something I saw highly recommended somewhere, grabbed the book when it was on sale cheap, and didn't really know or remember much about its description. I do that a lot.

In this case, it fell just a little flat with me. I'd describe it as a good book, written with a unique style and vibe all its own. I liked it well enough. But it never full-on clicked for me until the very end, at which point, well, it was over! 

I think if you're in the right mood or hit the right groove when reading this, you might find it to be outstanding. Flip that coin, and you could easily dislike it. Or you could land in the middle with me.

If you're in the mood for a short read exploring loneliness and an unaware yearning for connection, give that coin a toss and check out this book.
