Catherine Ho beautifully narrates this newly translated, prize-winning 2009 Japanese novel. Twenty-something Takako has lost interest in everything except sleeping after she's dumped by her cheating colleague and quits her job. With few options, she moves into the used bookstore owned by her quirky uncle, Satoru. Despite her reluctance, she grows into a voracious reader and is able to help her uncle and new friends. Ho's meticulous narration is spoken in a hushed tone that is perfect for the quiet space of a bookstore. The audiobook includes an author's note that lists classic Japanese authors and their books that have been translated into English. S.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
