This review is from: In The Miso Soup (Paperback)
Started well with a lot of promise and mystery.
Enjoyed it alot with alot of expectation for the ending. Nice writing style too, though could have been more sensitive in places.
However, for me, the ending for me was too simple.
Once it had built up to the climactic halfway point all the questions in your mind that made the story extraordinary and exciting were simply answered.
In place of the earlier excitement was a generally more philosophical tone that was too subtle and underplayed to be engaging and failed to add anything essential or valueable.
I got well into the book and couldn't put it down, but after The Main Event of the story, my continued enthusiasm was not well rewarded.
