book review by ruru - vol. 2


Hello everyone, hope you are doing well :)

For this article, I’m going talk to you about some books I read this year. If you have already read my previous post, you know that I’m trying to read books from all over the world this year. I showed you Japanese, Korean and Czech authors. This time, I will show you Japanese, Egyptian, Moroccan and Spanish authors!

今回はブックレビュー第2弾、最近読んだ本を紹介するね。前回も書いたように、今年は世界中の国の本を読もうと思っていて、前回は日本、韓国、チェコの本を紹介したけれど、今回は日本、エジプト、モロッコそしてスペインの本について。

1. No Longer Human by Osamu Dazai / 『人間間失格』 太宰治 - Japan

This book is one of the most famous Japanese novels and we read one of the other novels by him, ‘Run, Melos!’ at school in Japan.

Now, I don’t understand why I didn’t try and read this book for such a long time because it is so good! You can read a plot outline on Wikipedia. Not a big book, it is easy to read.
