weirdly enjoyable
von Johanna aus Bad Hall am 09.05.2021

I read this book to get out of a nearly yearlong reading slump and I actually did enjoy it quite a bit. It's definitely a light read but our protagonist is, even though she is really peculiar, actually pretty relatable. Loved the writing style and the message that it delivered.

"I'm now thirty-six years old, and the convenience-store-worker-me is eighteen."

Ever since the Smile Mart opened eighteen years ago, Keiko has been there, working, and still she is more of an outcast than anything else; working a low-income job and being unmarried atop of that is far from what an ideal japanese woman looks like. Or at least that's what her peers are telling her, who seem to be much more concerned with Keiko's private life than herself. But what will weigh heavier, what Keiko thinks is the right thing for her or what society thinks she's supposed to be? With great wits and a unique personality Sayaka Murata invites us into Keiko Furukura's space, giving us a fun to read view into her wonderfully bizarre life.
