*they were all *
were all unlikeable On the front cover there s a review saying Haunting dark and often hilarious I didn t find myself laughing much at all I think that I had very different expectations going into this and wonder if it would be enjoyable in Japanese I did actually like the ending but for me most of the book plodded and I don t feel like it was worth the time A simple story and once we can all relate to very interesting read Interesting view from the other side of the miror even though on the caricature side.
