Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa

Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa - Benjamin Constable This was one of those books that you remember.For the sublime quality of the actual plot. Perhaps for the quirkyness of the characters. Possibly just for the feeling you get at the end when you realize you have read something quite extraordinary.The dream of many a bookworm and author, that one book you go back to over and over again. If you're very lucky it will happen with many books, but not everyone has the pleasure of discovering the work of scribes that stay embedded in the depths of your mind.I can't even tell you exactly why this book is one of those for me.I also can't tell you whether it will be that way for you.Towards the end I found myself rushing forwards in thought to the ending I was sure would come, then having to backtrack when it didn't.To relay any details at all would spoil the twists and turns that are plotted with an almost devious mind-set, so I won't.What I will say is that it was both playful in its darkness and vast in its depth.Truly a joy to read.I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley.
