Book Review: The Memory Police by Yōko Ogawa

My fifth Yōko Ogawa read is one of my favourites and I can't wait for more of her work to be translated. I really enjoyed "The Memory Police" and its unique look at how memories are an important part of our identity - 5 stars.

Book Review: Revenge by Yōko Ogawa

I'd recommended these short stories for someone looking to read something a little dark. Yōko Ogawa writes simply without over-complicating things to tell 11 stories of revenge. They may be odd or strange to some but I have really enjoyed spending a few days engrossed in these little stories and give "Revenge" 5 stars.

Book Review: Hotel Iris by Yōko Ogawa

"Hotel Iris" is a novella that's opened a whole world of literature to me. Translated from Japanese, Ogawa tells a difficult story in a beautifully simply way. It may not be for everyone, and I know that this kind of book is always going to receive mixed reviews due to its tricky subject matter, but the writing style is right up my street and I personally can't wait to read more.
