    I find Banana Yoshimoto s style so distinctive, full of feelings and sensations expressed with touching openness, so unassuming and informal Under this limpid surface, as under the millpond skin of fairytale, meanings proliferate like living fishes, flickering in and out of view The story is gifted to the reader with humble generosity I have this for you, the giver says, and what you ll use it for isn t up to me.There are some moments when corroborations give the little narratives what feels to [...]

    3.5 out of 5AFTER reading Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto cutest name ever I was really looking forward to reading by her I didn t enjoy this book quite as much but it was still fun to read She writes of contemporary life but also dips into magical realism The book follows three different women who are bewitched in some way into a spiritual sleep one finds herself sleepwalking at night, one finds her sleep haunted by the ghost of a woman whom she was once pitted against in a love triangle and the t [...]

    I don t really know what to say about Asleep It was my firstBanana Yoshimoto book and while I didn t dislike it, I didn t necesarily find anything in particular to like about it.It was weird in that way that Japanese literature is usually weird, and usually I m okay with that Asleep consists of three short stories or maybe novellas and none of them really have any ending to them Normally, I m okay with the ambiguous ending that Japanese authors like so much, but having three stories back to back [...]

    La languidez e invisibilidad sint ctica de Banana Yoshimoto encuentra la compa a perfecta en estas historias de mujeres cuyas vidas se drenan poco a poco por un vac o que no consiguen controlar La vida cotidiana las alcanza y las destroza, dejando tras de s , cuerpos inertes que susurran en sue os la lista de todo aquello que han perdido Y hay tantos elementos en dichas enumeraciones que los ojos permanecen demasiado tiempo cerrados.Compuesto por tres cuentos independientes, pero con una tem tic [...]

    Quiz s es de las que menos me ha gustado de la autora.Me gusta centrarme en una historia y al llevar 3, siempre te quedas con ese gustito amargo de seguir con algo m srsonalmente la mejor ha sido la primera.Lo que est claro es que Banana Yoshimoto tiene un sello caracter stico en todas sus novelas, con un mundo onirico y un retrato hacia la vacuidad de la vida.Trata temas existencialistas como el suicidio, pero de manera muy sencilla, son historias de personajes, no importa nada la trama sino lo [...]

    La prima Banana cada vez que est gustando m s La sensaci n que provoca con sus relatos es conmovedora Me sent en medio de un limbo al leer el primer cuento, precisamente el que le da nombre al libro Tambi n me fascina a veces la idea de no despertar jam s, de ir pudri ndome y desaparecer en la eternidad Tal vez est pose da por el sue o Igual que Shiori estaba pose da por su trabajo Me da miedo pensarlo.

    Sue o profundo el mejor de los tres cuentos En estas tres historias los personajes est n de una forma u otra alienados no s encontrar una palabra mejor La primera chica no deja de dormir, la segunda vaga por las calles, la tercera se emborracha Han terminado con esa forma de enfrentarse a s mismas y a su realidad, aunque esto acaba antes de que sea demasiado tarde para ellas Unos personajes que parecen muy de nuestros d as.

    Much of Yoshimoto s work is characterised by pathos, sadness, emptiness and yearning in the sense that many of her characters seem to be missing something or someone, searching or somehow slightly incomplete She continues this theme among the young in these three novellas according to the marketing blurb or long short stories I remain unclear exactly what a novella might be about young women all, it seems, in their early to mid 20s dealing with loss and sacrifice over which they have little cont [...]

    Ay Banana me volviste a re encantar, con tan poco puedes hacer tanto Los caminos del ensue o son misteriosos.

    Quiz s no sea el mejor libro de Banana Yoshimoto, pero s el que me hizo sentir mas triste al final todo lo que comienza llega a su fin, y es inevitable perder lo que amamos, ll mese destino, azar, causa o consecuencia Quiz s el famoso Maktub si existe, y nada ocurre por casualidad Este libro me ense eso que si algo no est destinado a ser simplemente no lo ser l, el presagio de nuestro gran amor En aquel instante comprend en toda su dimensi n lo que exist a entre ambos Y entonces empec a amarlo d [...]

    Tre splendidi racconti da custodire e rileggere nei momenti di sconforto Sonno profondo , Viaggiatori nella notte e Un esperienza Sono questi i titoli di cui si compone la raccolta La notte il filo conduttore della narrazione Notti in cui le protagoniste si ritrovano a fare i conti con loro stesse, con il dolore di un lutto, il terrore della solitudine e la ricerca di una nuova speranza.Il primo , a mio parere, il pi intenso Nell affrontare la tematica della morte di un amica e del tormentato ra [...]

    Being a Banana Yoshimoto fan, I was really excited to get this book in the mail I m glad I actually bought this book Yoshimoto ties three beautiful stories together with the simple theme of sleep.In the first story, Mari is haunted by the death of her lover She spends her nights sleepwalking in the dead of winter In the second story, Haru and Fumi are caught in a complicated love triangle When the man that they love leaves, they both go there separate ways But soon Fumi finds herself unable to s [...]

    Banana Yoshimoto il classico scrittore che o si ama o si odia Per me questo libro almeno un s , anche se posso immaginare perch a molti non sia piaciuto in queste storie non succede niente, sono i racconti di stato d animo particolari e non la descrizione di fatti Una volta che si entra in quest ottica il libro bellissimo e scorrevole.

    Disfruto las historias, los detalles japoneses como las comidas y los rituales tradicionales La atm sfera Sin embargo siento el artificio No s si tenga que ver con problemas de traducci n pero me siento leyendo algo falso en ocasiones No s qu pasa con Banana para que siga queriendo leer algo que me hace sentir as.

    Io capisco che il sonno nel racconto sia solo un modo per rappresentare la situazione della protagonista, ma mettendomi nei suoi panni non ho potuto non trovare le sue azioni veramente assurde.Vai a dormire prima di mezzanotte, dormi fino alle 2 del pomeriggio e gi wow, che dormita e la cosa non ti stupisce No, lei se ne stupisce veramente poco Esce, non riesce a svegliarsi nemmeno dopo due caff , e cosa pensa muoio di sonno, meglio se torno a casa a dormire ma hai dormito fino ad ora Torna a ca [...]

    With a synopsis that promises fantastical elements of plot, it s best not to come into this book expecting Murakami levels of surrealism This novel could better be described as 3 thematically connected novellas, as none of their plots intersect, and their only connections are the shared meditations on death, loss, and sleep Banana Yoshimoto s writing is great though, simple but expressive No use of complex metaphors here, but she knows how to maintain a slow burn in describing the sad lives of h [...]

    Three melancholy tales about the lonely interior lives of women who live lives outside convention Yoshimoto has a distinctive voice throughout them all, capturing the frustrated ambition and listlessness that grief can bring with it Full review to come.

    Asleep is an OwnVoices Japanese literature novel that s a part of the magical realism genre It s also a small collection of three short stories written by Banana Yoshimoto, who s a female author.The first two stories were very interesting to me and I enjoyed them immensely The third story, which is the title story, did not appeal to me at all once I began reading it In this post, you can find mini reviews for each story with their ratings, as well as my overall rating for the book as a whole Nig [...]

    Este libro nos relata tres historias que comparten caracter sticas entre ellas, como lo son los sue os y la muerte de un ser querido Lectura ligera, lo termin en un par de horas.

    Mi primera autora japonesa Me pareci muy interesante ver la visi n entre un japon s y una japonesa sobre la belleza de las relaciones humanas Este libro se centra en la soledad, en el pasar de la vida y c mo todo es tan r pido que personas van y vienen, mueren y llegamos a tal punto d nde queremos volver a hablar sobre trivialidades porque ya no sabemos qu estamos haciendo.

    Israel Montoya Baquero
    Tres historias independientes, con un nexo comun el sue o, en las que Yoshimo excava en lo mas profundo del corazon humano para mostrarnos, de alguna manera, las emociones que alli se esconden.
