Cool book, okay I read it because the author's name is Banana! Isn't that so funny? That's so funny!!! It turns out that that's the author's pen name!!! After deep investigative reporting, her real name is: Mahoko Yoshimoto.
I guess this book belongs to the genre of sleep-core, books about sleeping!!! Another sleeping book is "My Year of Rest and Relaxation." I also read another book about sleeping but I forgot what it's called!!!
I slept for a whole month in February 2014. Sleeping gets boring thouhg, and I'm so scared of bad dreams!!! Basically sleeping is a poor means of escape!!! I read in a magazine that Netflix's biggest competitor is sleeping, and that videos are a commodified form of sleeping!
Reading is okay, though? Right? Sometimes at night I wake up and I feel scared, because everyone i know will die, and we'll have to lose everything. Life is so scary, so I listen to the news to feel better because at least those things make me forget my problems.
So this book is actually a collection of 3 short stories! They were good, except short stories are hard for me! You'd think they would be easy to read, because they're short, right? But my complaint is that you get used to these characters, and you get invested in the plot, and then all of a sudden, POOF! The story is over, and the next story is up, and you have to learn all these new characters and new plots -- TOO MUCH WORK!
Nevertheless, this book was okay! It had some ghosts and some weird things! Oh, and now after writing all this, I remember the other book that I read about sleeping, it was Murakami's After Dark!!! One of the characters was sleeping non-stop in the book, the main character's sister! I forgot if she woke up or not, but it was a good book! A little anticlimactic at the end, but good writing! BTW, I took a nap today! During the day, I feel less scared about life than at night time. Night time is so scary!!! It's like everyone is dead at night-time or something! Spooky!!!
