Convenience Store Woman (Sayaka Murata)

What a delightful and strange little book. This book (translated from the Japanese) is about a woman who has worked for the same convenience store for 18 years, and feels that only within its world is she able to be a person that society understands. It is a commentary on social pressure, relationships, and mental differences. The details of the convenience store are rendered lovingly, and the narrator is delightfully unique. I stayed up too late finishing this one, a quick but absorbing read!

And with that, I've officially completed the 2019 Read Harder Challenge! You can scroll to the bottom of this entry to see the full list. Yay!
