summary アムリタ

Dene Erinnerungen verbotene Liebe der Erlösung und Genesung und einer Begegnung mit dem Geist der Toten auf einer fernen Insel im PazifikAmrita das Wort stammt aus der Hindu Mythologie und bedeutet Göttertrank Lebenselixier das Unsterblichkeit schenkt ist eine Hommage an das Leben The thing about Banana Yoshimoto s books is that I feel like I m being introduced into a real and raw yet dreamy world The main character Sakumi aka Saku chan describes her mixed up family and the death of her younger sister and her own accident with crystal clear and unapologetic simplicityAll the characters have some flaw and we see the flaws but the flaws are so real and we are able to view them as natural part of life not a problematic thing to overcome The characters all seem to stay out late and drink and Sakumi regularly sleeps until afternoon There is no judgment and the characters live together in a fluid dance when they talk their words slice through the truth and these truths are accepted and acknowledgedI have the vague sense that I am entering another realm when I read this book Banana Yoshimoto is an intriguing storyteller I read her other 2 books years ago and I m so glad I found this gem The characters all seem to have some connection to the spirit supernatural world and it s so intriguing to read how they interact lovingly and in a real and raw wayThis book was a total pleasure and I find myself wishing that I could have this book accompany me in life to pick up whenever I want to connect with that supernatural world

アムリタ

Mayu eine gefeierte junge Schauspielerin stirbt unter tragischen Umständen Sie hinterläßt eine ungewöhnliche Wahl Familie die die Trauer um die Verstorbene zusammenhält Sakumi die ältere Schwester durch deren Augen sich die Geschichte entfaltet Yoshio einen jüngeren Bruder der I feel a need to defend this bookI picked it up during a Japanese authors phase and just couldn t put it down Some might argue that Yoshimoto s story is too surreal too fragmented too detailed as a friend put it For me it was just right Every other page I felt like underlining a uote Every seuential chapter distinctly out of joint with the previous made me feel like I was floating out in the ether somewhere The story is supposed to be about the way life turns on itself the ebb and flow of just living I think Yoshimoto conveyed that sense perfectly As far as the plot I m not sure what to say There s a girl She lost a chunk of her memory She has a brother who may or may not be insane Her sister committed suicide This girl has an odd relationship with her sister s fiance Everything somehow fits together like a Monet Just blobs up close but beautiful when you look at the whole picture

Banana Yoshimoto Í 8 review

Mystische Kräfte besitzt eine noch junge Mutter deren Freundin und Ryuichiro den Geliebten Mayus der einen Roman schreibt mit offenkundigen Parallelen zu ihrer GeschichteSakumi Yoshio und Ryuichiro begeben sich auf eine Reise durch Kummer und Leid verloren geglaubte und wiedergefun It might be unfair to rate this novel so low when I skipped most of it and will probably toss it away before I could finish it It is not necessarily boring rather not interesting I did not find any appeal in the story or the author s approach to narration Banana Yoshimoto is a talented writer She is very popular in her native Japan and has a loyal following Her writings however seem to target young women Her popular novels at least the ones that I have read were written in the 90s when Ms Yoshimoto was in her twenties or early thirties As such they portray the turbulence freethinking and rebelliousness of the young of that era Her novels are mostly about a group of well to do young people who are intimately connected and share difficult and sad experiences The protagonist is usually a cool and confident young woman who has experienced a death of a close relative or a young friend Also common is to find the protagonist or someone close to her dating a much older man Reading Amrita feels as if you are reading the author s personal diary entries There is no coherent story just a talk about current and past events in her life A major portion is recitation of the tedious dialogues the narrator has had with friends and familyIt takes patience and commitment to reading a Yoshimoto novel They are not for the casual reader or those looking to be entertained You need to be in the right mind set to really enjoy her writings They will most probably appeal to the young in their teens and tweens and particularly those who are in the midst of a relationship or contemplating the meaning of life

    How do you rate a bad book if the author herself apologizes for it Would you be considerate with your rating because of the apology At least you can say that she has that humility of accepting the fact that what she wrote a trashy bookHonestly for me there is almost nothing new or nothing to like in this book However on the very l

    I feel a need to defend this bookI picked it up during a Japanese authors phase and just couldn't put it down Some might argue that Yoshimoto's story is too surreal too fragmented too detailed as a friend put it For me it was just right Every other page I felt like underlining a uote Every seuential chapter dis

    I adore Banana Yoshimoto for the ability to create atmosphere I find myself at ease in She is for me the master of ‘ichi go ichi e’ this elusive Japanese awareness of treasuring the unrepeatable nature of a moment “Amrita” like many other works by Yoshimoto is a perfect novel embodying itMany people have a problem with “Amrita” saying it is too weird or about nothing in particular Some characters possess powers most p

    In Sanskrit Amrita means immortality And this book was in between surreal and reality I've read few magical realism before but never one like this A fresh kind of vibe Talking about plot as what Yoshimoto said this book is very simple It was about daily life and what's happening around I love how it relates to most of familiar scenes in life people come and go incidents happen loneliness and betrayal friendship and families gift

    The thing about Banana Yoshimoto's books is that I feel like I'm being introduced into a real and raw yet dreamy world The main character Sakumi aka Saku chan describes her mixed up family and the death of her younger sister and her own accident with crystal clear and unapologetic simplicityAll the characters hav

    Amrita by Banana Yoshimoto is one of those books that is a terror to summarize The book I think is best summarized by one o
