FAV REVIEW

THE AUTHOR/BOOK

“But why is it that if you imagine a baby who smells of milk, for example, you can't help smiling? Why is there such an agreement around the world about what is or isn't a foul smell? Who decided what smells bad? Is it impossible that somewhere in this world there are people who, if they sat next to a homeless fellow they'd get the urge to snuggle up to him, but if they sat next to a baby they'd get an urge to kill it?” 

First, I want to introduce my favourite author to you; Ryu Murakami.
I found his work when I first fell in love with Asian cinema and I saw Audition. Audition is a film by Takashi Miike, based on a novel with the same name.

Ryu writes mostly mystery and thriller books, by far the best from this genre in my opinion.
Like Asian films, Asian books also have this strangely captivating feel in them, they're not like any other books. I've always liked to read about tragedies and the dark side of human beings, I'm not sure why. Ryu does this almost too well and after reading a book of his I always tend to feel a bit uneasy, but I still want more. So far I've read Audition, Piercing and In The Miso Soup and I'm reading Coin Locker Babies at the moment. 

THE MOVIE


I'm A Cyborg But That's Ok is a movie about a girl who thinks she's a cyborg and who goes into a mental hospital and falls for a guy who thinks that he can steal people's souls. Sounds freaking amazing, doesn't it? Just the name and the plot together should make you want to see the movie. And it's much more than that. The movie makes you laugh and cry, it makes you think and feel. The characters are super quirky and lovable in every way. 

THE TV-SHOW


I actually just saw the first episode of this show about a week ago and I was sold immediately. Orange Is The New Black is the best new thing I've discovered in a while. In short, it's about a woman who gets sentenced to prison for 15 months. I just love the witty and dirty dialogue and the characters are so well written. I especially love it that in every episode you get to introduced how some of the main characters got into prison in the first place. It's so much better (and imaginative) than just being forced to guess. And I just can't get over how much Taylor Schilling (Piper) looks like Katy Perry in the show!

  1. I love Orange is the New Black.
    I have never read any Ryu Murakami but I have read four or five books by Haruki Murakami, another Japanese author and his books are also strange and wonderful.
    Please do more posts like this, I really enjoyed it.

    1. Käytän joo. Kokoa M tais olla. On erittäin luotettava, paketeissa kestää maksimissaan kuukauden, koska ne tulevat Aasiasta saakka. Ei ole kokemusta palautuksesta :)
