2411 : Reading list of 2018 : #9 : The Changeling by Kenzaburo Oe

My first book from Kenzaburo Oe. He is a legend in a local sort of way (in Japan). Is a Nobel Laureate, no lesser. 

I found this book haunting, and yet very difficult to keep pace with. Especially in the middle it just lost me at times. 

Like possibly all Japanese books (this is immensely visual and immersive).

An eerie book. Worth a read. Absolutely. Am glad I read it.

Overall - I would rate this 8/10 - and thats just because maybe the translator lost me at some places.

A 468 page tome this is, so stick to it - it does take time to complete.

My overall 2018 read is now at 3148 pages.
