    PDF/EPUB Rainbirds PDF Ù ✓ smrl.me ✓ rainbirds kindle, Rainbirds EpubThe opposite of action packed but not necessarily boring It’s a bit like watching gold fish Nothing exciting happens but you still can’t turn away The first few pages introduce the premise a guy’s sister has been murdered and he learns a lot about himself and her as he picks up clues slowly revealing whodunnit Or so we thinkDon’t get excited though This isn’t your typical mystery novel It’s slow and meditative throughout Not for someone who freuently says “when is something going to happen?”As someone not familiar with Japa

    PDF/EPUB Rainbirds PDF Ù ✓ smrl.me ✓ rainbirds kindle, Rainbirds EpubWritten in a spare minimalist style with hints of magical realism that feels very Japanese Rainbirds tells the story of a man in his 20s whose older sister is murdered He leaves Tokyo for the small town where she had been living in an effort to understand the sister he realizes he didn't know as well as he thought he did or should have Haunted by regrets and curiosity he finds himself stepping into her shoes in certain ways taking over the job she had teaching English at a cram school renting the same room in a house she did At points it seems like a whodunit at others like a ghost story but ultimately resists both these genre classifications Rainbirds is set in the early 1990s before cellphones and the internet changed everyone's

    PDF/EPUB Rainbirds PDF Ù ✓ smrl.me ✓ rainbirds kindle, Rainbirds EpubRAINBIRDS is a compelling and thoughtful story set in Japan in 1994 It's the story of Ren Ishida whose sister Keiko has just been murdered in her prime Ren moves to the small town where Keiko lived and worked and takes a job at the school where Keiko taught There he meets a beautiful but troubled student called Rio and discovers painful secrets about the past The prose is clean and evocative with a light magic realism touch and hits the sweet spot between beautiful and couldn't put it down

    PDF/EPUB Rainbirds PDF Ù ✓ smrl.me ✓ rainbirds kindle, Rainbirds EpubRainbirds by Haruki Murakami sorry Clarissa Goenawan is about a man who attempts to investigate the murder of his sister by traveling to her home in Akakawa It's also the most derivative book I've ever readLook I don't usually mind when the influence of another author is clearly present in a novel Writers are influenced by other writers this is how art has always been created If We Were Villains is like The Secret History; The Book Collector is like Rebecca It happens But where the novels I just cited each have their own voice their own distinctive characters their own intriguing stories to tell Rainbirds just doesn't My main problem with this book is that I've read it

    PDF/EPUB Rainbirds PDF Ù ✓ smrl.me ✓ rainbirds kindle, Rainbirds EpubThis book was a pleasant surprise spare and lyrical prose in what seemed part Japanese novel part mystery part poetry While the plot didn't always go in the direction I imagined it would and a few scenes seemed inauthentic to the overall story there were unforgettable details
