3.0 out of 5 stars hmmm, 25 Aug 2014
I read this in a day. I'm not a fan of tofu therefore this book wasn't as gripping as it would be for a tofuphile. Saying that, I do fancy some tofu now.

Maybe it's the translation but I can't really picture the two main characters. Halfway through the book I did want them to hurry up and sleep together as felt this was the inevitable conclusion.

3 stars? It flowed ok and I enjoyed the scenes in the bar. 2 stars off five? The kindle copy contained hybrid words that knocked my concentration. Coupled with the fact that both main characters I found rather boring and frustrating.

Went back to basics with this book. Nothing basic about it though. This book is good to recharge your mindset about asking and receiving. Each chapter is a gem. I will re read this many times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful, 22 July 2013
Like a rose this book is simply beautiful. Doesn't pull any punches, Is delicate yet deals with grief and longing in deft prose.
