disappointment of the month or the rare case when the book Japanese author aroused disgust.It seemed to me that the combination of the Japanese narrative of measured and kitchen magic - it's a miracle elixir that will save us from any melancholy.the placebo effect does not happen.

But no ...A few words about the content ...It is immersed in the feeling of loneliness and prostration, from which it takes grandmother's friend Yuichi (a young man from the flower shop) suddenly offered to live in the same house with him and his mother (actually her father, a transvestite).

Girl Mikage (colorless character of unknown age) last lost a loved one - my grandmother.Next start treading plot and attempts a la psychology: awkward passages of their life together, demonstrating characteristics that do not affect the storyline, romance from the past (they are just students ??), murder, etc.In general, the idea is clear Yoshimoto: lonely girl found relatives in strangers, cooking helped her find peace of mind, but the fear of losing the new bothered her to go ahead and realize their love for the hero, is a common problem of not sblizila.Konechno similar story is not new, but it could be attractive, be it the beauty of the narrative, and a sufficient share of emotions can cause empathy.but not about his mother, he says, is far unflattering) and addicted to purchases of home appliances (why this fetish?), Father Yuichi - fatal handsome, having lost his wife decides for himself to become a woman ... (need offer Indian men in revenge for centuries of the sati ritual), etc.Why in the annotation is called "deep" and "charming," a mystery to me.looking to compare.
