If Cats Disappeared from the World [book]

If Cats Disappeared from the World [book]

I DON'T KNOW, THIS JUST WASN'T AS GOOD AS I HOPED. IT FELT LIKE IT HAD A HANDFUL OF PAGES THAT WERE SUPER WELL WRITTEN THEN A LOT OF FILLER. IT FEELS LIKE A BUNCH OF THE MAJOR PLOT STUFF JUST DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE. LIKE WHAT IF MOVIES DISAPPEARED? THIS WASN'T TRYING TO MAKE SCI-FI WORLD BUILDING BUT IT FEELS LIKE IT DIDN'T EVEN TRY TO WRITE ANYTHING THEMATICALLY. LIKE IF CLOCKS DISAPPEARED IT TALKED ABOUT HOW ANIMALS DON'T LIVE BY CLOCKS AND THAT FELT LIKE EFFORT, BUT MOVIES FELT LIKE NOTHING. AND A LOT OF THIS FELT LIKE THAT. LIKE MOST OF THE PAGES WERE JUST PADDING BETWEEN THE ACTUAL PAGES WITH THE EMOTIONAL WEIGHT. WHICH, TO BE FAIR, IT DID DO A GOOD JOB WRITING THE EMOTIONAL PARTS AS SAD AND EMOTIONAL. AMAZON SHOWS WHEN PEOPLE HIGHLIGHT TEXT A LOT AND THIS HAD A LOTS AND LOTS OF UNDERLINES FROM THAT.

PS. I WAS SUPER EXCITED BY THE "JAPANESE AUTHOR" CATEGORY, MORE THAN ANY OTHER CATEGORY, I ALREADY READ A MURAKAMI BOOK LIKE 2 BOOKS AGO, SO I STARTED WITH "REBORN AS A VENDING MACHINE, I NOW WANDER THE DUNGEON" BECAUSE THAT FELT FUNNY TO READ BUT THE TRANSLATION WAS UNREASONABLY BAD NONSENSE, SO I TRIED TO READ "I WANT TO EAT YOUR PANCREAS" AND READ ABOUT 100 PAGES, THEN WAS SO BORED I WANTED TO DIE, BEFORE SETTLING ON THIS, WHICH I ALSO DIDN'T LIKE. I PUT TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON THIS CATEGORY TO READ SOMETHING FUNNY OR INTERESTING AND RUINED IT!
