A chance encounter brings a hint of romance to a young woman’s journey through the streets of Tokyo. This semi-autobiographical short story by the author of Butterfly Swords explores questions of identity and connectedness in the digital age.
Author’s note: All author proceeds from the sale of this story will be donated to the Red Cross for the relief effort in Japan.
I liked that Jeannie Lin added that aspect of how she felt being a non-Japanese woman visiting Tokyo. That is the best part of this book.
- just running around pointing out famous Japanese spots (eh)
- the romance may be more realistic but it is boring and has no chemistry
- feels more like a straight literary fiction than a romance
Overall, I just thought you are too short to be boring. Another book I read recently, Transformation, was under 30 pages but felt the same need to meander. You are too short to be doing all this especially if it is not interesting. Not to say that just because a book is long it gets to disregard my interest.
I still want to read Jeannie Lin because her other stories seem way more engaging and interesting. This was just a miss for me.
