This review is from: Who is Mr Satoshi? (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this book as it is partly set in Japan, a country that holds great fascination for me. I didn't really know much else about the book, so I was very surprised to find such a great story. The main character, Rob, is vunerable and reclusive, having lost his pregnant wife some years back, and then suddenly losing his elderly mother. He's in a bad place and retiring into his shell. His mother has left behind a mystery package addressed to Mr Satoshi, which she wants him to deliver, and circumstances conspire to send him to Japan, where he searches for the elusive Mr Satoshi using clues from old leters of his mothers, whilst also trying to rediscover his photography mojo. In Japan, he meets Chiyoko, who takes him under her wing and helps in his search.
Not only a great story, but very touching and the way Rob deals with his grief and his problems is quite beautiful. I found this book to be moving and heartrending, whilst still being a great read.
