  1. How do you know an author is talented One way is when you cannot stop reading, even though not much is happening plotwise This was Tokyo Finacee for me Nothomb creates striking images with very few words, and their arresting quality is not lost in translation Note The title is Tokyo Fianc e Quote The concept of freedom has been spoken of so often that from the very first words I want to yawn The physical experience of freedom, however, is something else all together You should always have someth [...]

  3. The bulk of this book was about culture clash than about a relationship, and I very much enjoyed the narrator s musings on the pitfalls and delights of developing relationships in foreign languages The problem is that the book reads very much like any 20 year old s study abroad journal there s a lot of reporting what happened, but no larger theme, no real character development, nothing to tie it together as a story Until, of course, the very end, when the narrator s attempts to draw conclusions [...]

  6. My passion, besides reading, is watching and collecting Asian movies and dramas I watch a great deal of Chinese and Korean cinema and TV, but my specialty is Japanese I was at my library when they put the film Tokyo Fiancee on the shelf and my hand shot out and grabbed it in a blink of the eye I found the film intensely interesting I haven t been so upset by an ending in quite a long time I returned the film and took home the book I can say the same for the book and remark the book s ending adde [...]

  7. Alguien me dijo que si me gustaba Murakami este libro iba con el mismo estilo as que autom ticamente me lanc.Es una fragmento biogr fico, una poca de la vida de la autora en la que vuelve a Jap n despu s de muchos a os dispuesta a conquistar el monte fuji, un japon s y el pa s entero si se descuidan.Cuando termin el libro sent que deber a llamarse Manual para entender a los japoneseslo cual, en mi opini n, ser a m s acertado que el t tulo que tiene En realidad es una lectura muy corta que no alc [...]
