2.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye Tsugumi, June 20 2004
This review is from: Goodbye Tsugumi (Paperback)
A disappointing book from an author whom I came to love after reading Kitchen and N.P.:A Novel. Goodbye Tsugumi is told in a simple way. Yoshimoto's story is lacking a simple elegant style, instead it feels sophmoric.
Much of the writing comes off as a teenager recollecting the past with a friend. This might work if there was something more to be gained from the story, but there is not. Reading this book is like unraveling a simple square knot,once it is released there is nothing more there.
