The Great Passage | Shion Miura

Pickpick

This was a pleasant little read. I'm not sure if anything was lost in translation as it was a little strange in some places. The characters were likeable and interesting and the ending was quaint but not in a cliched way.

tif @TheBookStacker I think it will probably end up being one of my favourites too. I think I'm about a third of the way through and I constantly find myself sobbing for Jude and what he believes about the world and himself. Not sure I'll be able to read it more than once. 8mo

Still making my way through this giant. There's been a couple of times when I've almost had to stop reading because of the scenes describing William Hamleigh and his treatment of women. I didn't realise this book would be so full of graphic descriptions of sexual assault :(

Mrsann2000 I agree! I am re-reading (and listening) and I just quickly go by those parts. While it may be how things were — I have a hard time reading ANY type of harm and brutality. (edited) 11mo
tif @Mrsann2000 I just don't know if so much detail is necessary and is it absolutely necessary to use violence against women as a plot point? It just feels a bit like using violence against women for entertainment and I'm not really ok with that (reason 145 why I don't watch or read Game of Thrones) 11mo
MrsMalaprop So with you there on the reasons I won‘t watch GOT. 🙌 11mo

madamereadsalot1 Labyrinth is still to this day one of my top favorite movies! I went to the movies so many times to watch it as a kid. My cousin Joseph was madly in love with Bowie, so he uses my sister and I as an excuse to go watch it over and over. He said he needed to see more of Bowie's tights on big screen! 😆 11mo

Finished these two last night. Dark Matter was for book club and I didn't love it. Lucky Boy I read for the Tournament of Books and was surprised to see so many people hating on it. I thought it was a great book and very well written but I seem to be in the extreme minority on the #TOB Goodreads discussion of it. Lots of people comparing it to Little Fires Everywhere and while the issues are similar I think they are seperate from each other.

I was so unaware of the discrimination and hardships endured by Koreans in Japan. Or that Korean refugees even sought refuge in Japan when their country was in turmoil.

Having a bad day. A VERY bad day. And feeling all the feelings you feel when you've isolated yourself so much that you don't get included in or invited to things any more. And that depression part of your brain tells you it's cause you're fucked and why would anyone want to spend time with you. And every nasty thing every one has ever said to you swims in your head and pushes you underneath the water because you know they must have been right.

Cathythoughts Looks delicious at the library 👍🏻😊 1y
