The narrator's purpose isn't clear and first and by the end there are still many unanswered questions. I do think that some of the information presented in the narrative could have been left out, as it is re-explained in Sakakibara's POV. Of course there are other things present in the narrative that without being mentioned would make what happens to Sakakibara seem much less spooky. I do like the blend of the two. I feel that they both were definitely needed to tell this story.
There is a few things that happen in this book that remind me that I'm dealing with a different culture. I wish there was even more emphasis on the culture because I found it nearly as fascinated as the storyline.
Even though this is a series, I felt that the ending was completely satisfactory as a standalone. I'll probably read the next installment when it is translated. (B+)
(I received a copy of this book from the publisher/Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.)
