Thumbs Up“This short story collection gave me a lot of feelings, but all in all I enjoyed it. Although there are some that I liked most. This book has 11 short stories, some were Dazai's versions of retelling already existed stories. As always, I liked his writing style. The ability to capture the condition of society at that time alongside with mixing both tragedy and comedy in one story, even adding his own version in the retelling, proved how genius he was. Every story I read in and out of this book gave me different feelings and also different way of seeing the matter. Reading Dazai's works is like being taken to different places each time. All with different feelings, vibes, and experiences.”
