    Birthday Girl

    This short story really wanted to draw me and and take me for a ride. I wish it had been longer or even developed into a full story. However, that might have taken the magic away. The fact that it is so short and concise made it an enjoyable read.

    Short story alert!

    Possibly my view is coloured by this publication not being a novel or novella but a short story. I don't feel it was marketed as such. I'm not a short story fan. It is the 20th birthday of one of the 2 central characters in the story. I had to look it up that in Japan your 20th birthday marks your coming of age - so why it is special. I suspect that if I'd read this as part of a book group and discussed what was going on or the point of the story I might of enjoyed it more. The moral for me is that I will check the length of Marakami's publications in future!
