Book #47 The Girl Who Leapt Through Time by Yasutaka Tsutsui

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

This, at 170 pages is a brief book, so allow me to be equally brief. It comprises of two short stories "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" and "The Stuff That Nightmares Are Made Of"

In the initial story school girl Kazuko finds herself falling through time; in the second two siblings confront their nightmares.

These stories are appallingly written, piss poor would be the best description. Perhaps it's just a truly terrible translation but it reads like a precocious 13 year old wrote it.

It's not just the style of language that makes this poorly written though, it's also the construct of the plot, particularly in the first story.

Mediocre on every level, definitely don't read this! 0/10
