a tender yet emotional tale

Bewertung am 07.01.2024

Bewertungsnummer: 2104006

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

4.75* This is a tender yet emotional tale about daily survival, the power of friendship self-love, and the state of our society and the school system. A story about 7 kids who can't attend school for various reasons and get invited through their wall mirrors into a castle in another world. There, they can spend their time instead of alone at home while also looking for a key to unlock a wish come true. But that mission is just secondary compared to the connections of trust and support these children learn to form with each other. The novel shines a light on the mental state of many school children in Japan in general and particularly on the various reasons children might not be capable of attending school. In that aspect, the novel did a remarkably great job of being respectful, not preachy, and very careful of a realistic portrayal of the children's circumstances. None of the background stories seemed over the top dramatic or scandalous, but still infuses them with emotion and understanding. I loved how realistic the struggle, the inner walls, the setbacks, and the very slow opening up between the members of the group were described. It's a journey back to oneself, about the importance of supportive relationships and trust in oneself and others. I don't want to spoil the end, but all the revelations had me crying my eyes out, and I think the story wrapped up beautifully. Such a great start into a new reading year.

Okay for teenagers not very exciting

Bewertung am 04.12.2023

Bewertungsnummer: 2081292

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

I was very fond with this book at first. It has a unique and beautiful idea and the first few pages promised much. However as soon as the new world in the castle is introduced it loses all its charisma. I found that the introduction to the main characters psyche was so relatable and deep. But she later seems to be rather shallow as a character and her relationship to her mother and school disappears. Instead the book focuses on shallow relationships between the characters. It feels like it’s heading nowhere for 30 pages. That’s where I stopped reading. Also if you don’t come from the Japanese culture you might get bored by the permanent mentioning of the importance or stressing over how they address one another properly. Another reason I started to dislike it is the very conservative perspective it is written from. The Japanese culture itself is conservative and the book mirrors that. While the females are portrayed as submissive the boys are “cool” and don’t communicate emotions. It’s a whole big topic and it’s annoying if you yourself wish for strong female characters and open male characters that can interact on eyesight. However I assume that it is a good read for a teen group that has not yet reflected on these topics.
