How do you rate a bad book if the author herself apologizes for it Would you be considerate with your rating because of the apology At least you can say that she has that humility of accepting the fact that what she wrote a trashy bookHonestly for me there is almost nothing new or nothing to like in this book However on the very last page of my edition was an Afterword by the author and she sounded apologetic I give my deepest thanks to the one who translated this book so random and disjointed with such thoughtful care Mr Russell F Wasden Yoshimoto for me admitted the problem she recognized after reading what whe wrote her random thoughts and disjointed plotYoshimoto may have that astute sense of attention to details so she can take you to the scenes in the book like you are physically there However she described what was happening in too many details that for several instances I lost track of what she was saying It was a bit amusing at first but her characters were not ordinary people who I could relate to myself or to some people I ve known or I ve met Most of her characters here have special powers telepathic clairvoyant visionaries etc so relating was simply difficult Then some of those without special powers behaved illogically or irrationally For example I know that Japanese are very disciplined people in terms of schooling or with their work ethics However the mother in the story does not give a damn whether her son absents himself from school or not Her solution to her worries in life is just to go out and enjoy a night drinking with her boyfriend I have not actually lived in Japan but from the business associates I had in my previous work this behavior of the mother seems not common in their rigid and disciplined cultureThe story seems like an extended version of her first novel Kitchen the novel that made her a household name not only in Japan but in most parts of the world Around 100 pages is forgivable but extending a senseless fragmented plot by another 50 pages is not funny any Again in her Afterword she said that after writing the book she read it and realized how na ve she was that her face turned red She added that she thought she might not ever write another book as lengthy as this one I say good for her She explained that the theme of this book was simple and she just wanted to express the idea that regardless of all the amazing events that happen to each of us there will always be a never ending cycle of daily lifeI say fine However I ve seen mediocre novelists using this scapegoat to those who say that my novel has no plot this I ask to them does life have a plot I think having a plot is essential to a novel Even Gabriel Garcia Maruez s masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude is about the never ending cycle of life but it has a plot and it is a beautiful brilliant plot Also reading a novel is just a part of life It is one of those things we do to enjoy life It is not life itself So it has to have a plotOn the other hand I can see why other people would still love this book It has the magical realism similar to the works of her contemporary Haruki Murakami minus the references to sex Also this is feminine for it is a chick lit It touches on relationships mother to her son sister to her younger brother female bonding young woman grieving for her dead father and beautiful dead sister Yoshimoto describes her scenes in details that if you have already been to Tokyo you cannot help but reminisce those days you spent there when you ate or drank at some bars when you rode their bullet train when your train passed by a nice smelling bakery etc After all if you ve been to Japan you want to go back right We all love JapanSo even if I hated this book I am still rating this with 2 stars It is still okay

アムリタ

Undene Erinnerungen verbotene Liebe der Erlösung und Genesung und einer Begegnung mit dem Geist der Toten auf einer fernen Insel im PazifikAmrita das Wort stammt aus der Hindu Mythologie und bedeutet Göttertrank Lebenselixier das Unsterblichkeit schenkt ist eine Hommage an das Leb. In Sanskrit Amrita means immortality And this book was in between surreal and reality I ve read few magical realism before but never one like this A fresh kind of vibe Talking about plot as what Yoshimoto said this book is very simple It was about daily life and what s happening around I love how it relates to most of familiar scenes in life people come and go incidents happen loneliness and betrayal friendship and families gifted and ungifted As what Yoshimoto said in foreword she might not write any lengthy story any after this one but I really wish she would still do It was not that bad honestly It might sound like a girl ranting and scribbling her life through out the pages but the memories her heart and thought was so vivid I could actually felt it deeply inside my heart The characters were my favorite From Sakumi herself to Yoshio and Ry ichir Even Mayu And I kind of love Saseko although she s somewhat a bit spooky It was so various and uniue Noodle and Mesmer and even the Berries owner But I must say the part of Yoshio s story was a bit bizarre to me With such talent and gift at that young age I was mesmerized when he told Sakumi that he met Mayu like what else can you do kiddo No punchline or twist nothing too profound it was just as it is So random odd and paranormal but very thoughtful Not many would love this book I think but it was okay for me though I rant to myself too sometimes just like Sakumi did or probably I just got hypnotized by Mesmer Love the ending as well and all the heartfelt letters 35 stars

I adore Banana Yoshimoto for the ability to create atmosphere I find myself at ease in She is for me the master of ichi go ichi e this elusive Japanese awareness of treasuring the unrepeatable nature of a moment Amrita like many other works by Yoshimoto is a perfect novel embodying itMany people have a problem with Amrita saying it is too weird or about nothing in particular Some characters possess powers most people don t they can enter other people s dreams they have premonitions they are deeply connected to themselves and others For me though this is not some magic I myself sometimes have premonitions usually in the form of dreams but an element of reality many feel uncomfortable with but I feel perfectly in peace withWhat I love about Amrita is that the story has no beginning and no end it s not aimed at transforming any character but they do change has no climax and doesn t seem to have any clear message It is all about emotions and feeling that the moment is there and will soon belong to the past When Yoshimoto writes about staying up late coming downstairs to the kitchen to make coffee at 3am she makes me want to do exactly the same It s been a long time since I read such perfect descriptions of holidays spent on getting a suntan and doing nothing as the main character and people close to her enjoy in K chi and later on Saipan As people we narrowly get by with our lives each day energy from our soft delicate actions appearing like cherry blossoms only once and once for a short while Eventually petals fall to the ground Amrita is also a novel about family bonds trust and autonomy family members give to one another Reading about so many unhappy families in Japanese literature here it was a breath of fresh air to see a family considered strange for being unconventional by the conservative protagonist but healthy imperfectly happy and at ease People who truly enjoy spending time in each other s company For all the above I hold Yoshimoto in the pantheon of authors who move me evoke deepest emotions and make me pay attention to the joy of simple moments And this is what I treasure

    Amrita by Banana Yoshimoto is one of those books that is a terror to summarize The book I think is best summarized by one of the uotes by the protagonist The world around us often goes thru changes It doesn't mean it gets better or worse It simply continues to change endlessly moving onAmrita the sanskrit word yes sanskrit means life flow and throughout the book it flows There is a cycle of events emotions and thoughts which doesn't really
