I got this because “It was like The Lover“, and I liked that book, so “I would like this one, too.”
I can’t say I really… liked it. I can’t say it was just ok either; it’s somewhere in between, and to be fair, I never went past half the book.
The part I read wasn’t all that bad, but it felt a bit like the author kept trying to sound more than what she could actually be. Like a kid trying to use big words.
I got bored halfway through and decided I better take my time reading about samurai.
It’s a kind of book I’d probably pick up again sometime, but not anytime soon.
