Es un libro muy aclamado, pero que me aburrió muchísimo.
Si bien la utilización de la segunda persona es original, la historia en sí me parece predecible y nunca logré apegarme a los personajes.
Lo leí como tarea, pero no volvería a leerlo...

Storytelling in the second person works superbly for the terror and magic. Not difficult to predict, but that's never been a problem for me. A good plot twist on its own won't make a short story survive time: this story is about keeping beauty young forever, about immortality. If the preservation of beauty beyond what is natural is a sign of the supernatural, this story is an apparition. I thought it was beautiful.

I read this for class (thank god it's short) but it's a great spooky Halloween read, replete with poisonous plants, unbroken darkness, bloody carcasses, and an old woman and her niece with a very strange connection...

What a perfect book to read in a bilingual edition.

Sace @BekahB I've never read horror #manga before. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone with Gyo. 2y
Sace @rubyslippersreads I agree it's particularly creepy. 2y

Sace @MidnightBookGirl hopefully I'll get some of them read. I'm great at planning but fail at execution. 2y
