    1. This novel begins promisingly, as a young doctor is exiled to a remote in ways than one island full of creepy old people with dark secrets There are two other non native youngsters there and a classic love triangle quickly develops return return Shimoda s style is plain, quite subtle, with flashes of wit, and well fitted to the telling of a tale like this which seems to teeter on the edge of an abyss of weirdness without ever quite toppling in return return I suppose it s a story about boundari [...]


    2. I had a hard time getting into this book It moved kind of slowly, and the illustrations were a distraction from the story Endo, a first year resident in a hospital in Japan takes the fall for the head resident s mistake which resulted in a young woman s death Endo s punishment is to move to a small island off Japan to be the only doctor to a small population of older people The island used to be a thriving community before they started having earthquakes with much frequency The fishing industry [...]


    3. Beautifully written, this starts promisingly with the protagonist being sent to a desolate and earthquake prone island At odds with the few, elderly locals, he strikes up friendships of a sort with the two other, younger, non islanders But what appears to be a developing mystery gets bogged down in individual personal histories of the islanders, only a few of which are of much interest The ending is preposterous and feels like a slap in the face The book is lovely to look at, with illustrations [...]


    4. Wow This book is a great departure from the usual mystery story For one thing, the text is interspersed with many pages of art and a myth about a giant catfish However, the narrative pulled me safely past these potential distractions The setting is a small Japanese island fraught with earthquakes, hence the name of the tectonic activity that causes quakes The subduction acts as both the engine of the narrative and as metaphor for the abrasive relationships of the protagonist, a young male doctor [...]


    5. This book began fairly slow and was initially hard to get into The style was easy to read and the pictures and book itself are gorgeous.This is the type of book that would interest people who like stories like Dante s Peak and thrillers of pretty much any nature It s also definitely a light summer read my definition of light , especially with all the drama and history of the small community s problems.


    6. Another wonderful novel by the author of Oh A mystery of mono no aware that takes the collision of modern and traditional Japan into the realm of an isolated Japanese island plagued by earthquakes Fans of popular novelists like Murakami are highly advised to check out Shimoda s work The books published by Chin Music Press, in which the text are paired with an artis s work, are also gorgeous works of art in themselves.


    7. While the prose wasn t bad, the protagonist was aggravating certainly unduly antagonistic, I felt, in some parts and I felt no depth in his relationship with Mari The various flashbacks could have been better inserted rather than just given one after another whenever Endo was bored However, the myth and accompanying illustrations were wonderful.


    8. Very pretty, an lovely tactile book to hold as well as read Sadly I paid very little attention to the illustrations on the first go through as I tried to figure out what was going on in the story Tiny claustrophobic island, exiled doctor, piles of lies, earthquakes.



    9. This was a pretty good book The pictures spliced throughout it didn t add anything But the story was good, Japan is cool, the writing was decent, and I was satisfied with the ending.




    10. I won this book awhile ago and I love it so farIts got me hooked I hate when I have to put it down, but my kids come first and I cant always read so I love every chance I get to read.
