Book Review: "Terminal Boredom" by Izumi Suzuki
When it comes to the Japanese short story, there are many authors that you could mention with books that are clearly some of the best of all time because of their efforts to twist the old traditions on to their heads to create something entirely new and original. One of these is Yoko Ogawa’s “Revenge” in which several stories are linked together by simple symbols, characters or minor events. Then there is “People From My Neighbourhood” by Hiromi Kawakami who has a similar concept in which the character goes through various people who live in their neighbourhood of interest. Each character is connected to another but not necessarily in order of how they are placed in the book. I think though, that this one entitled “Terminal Boredom” by Izumi Suzuki is slightly different yet again in that it plays on the concept of sci-fi to the point that it is a strange, twisted and darkly comic piece of satire in which we internationally recognise. There are so many genres going on at the same time that it is very difficult to pin-point one that is explored completely.

Return to Me
Springtime is easily my favorite season. With an exception for the unbearable allergies, it is filled with beautiful colors, early and late sunlight, and most importantly a craving for romantic movies. For this reason I knew I had to write a post about love before Spring concluded.
