One thought on “Summer, Fireworks, and My Corpse

  1. Pranta Ghosh Dastider

    This small book surely took long to read When I started this, I thought I would finish it in one go But there were trouble This book specially it s translation work wasn t good At least for me that made most of the trouble Summer, Fireworks and My Corpse is a handy work of the Japanese author Otsuichi I have always been fascinated by Japanese culture and media That was the very reason I wanted to give this book a go I thought after reading the synopsis, this will be a different sort of story, I [...]

    My second Otsuichi book, the first being Black Fairy Tale While I like Black Fairy Tale better, since you know, fairy tales and its connection to stories, Summer, Fireworks and My Corpse was an equally weird and creepy short novel.IIn Summer, Fireworks and My Corpse, the protagonist Satsuki incidentally, it s another way of saying May , which may or may not have a deeper meaning is killed by her best friend Yayoi Did I mention that the girls are only I think nine They re seriously young kids Any [...]

    I received a digital copy of this title from the publisher via Netgalley.Ten Second Synopsis Satsuki is playing in a tree with her friend, when she is pushed off the branch, falls and dies She then narrates the tale of how her murderous friend and the friend s brother attempt to hide her body so as not to get into trouble.This is an absolutely ripper, quirky little gem of a tale Given that this is a translation, I m not entirely sure if the translation is a bit clunky or the original voice of th [...]

  4. Bibliotropic

    Full review here bibliotropic 2016 06 23 s I d say this was a good introduction to Otsuichi s work, a nice teaser for what s to come It s low investment you can finish both of these stories pretty quickly, and there s an appeal to a wide age range, since they re rather YA oriented but still creepy and nuanced enough to appeal to adults who want to feel a quick tingle down their spine It s worth a real if you re curious about the kind of ghost stories that can come out of Japan, and, if like me, [...]

    This is surely not the best work of Otsuichi I have to say I was a bit disappointed after finishing the book in one go I probably had just thought too highly of it before I started reading Nice title, though.

    literary lion.tumblr Disclaimer A free copy of this book was received through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Satsuki dies after being pushed from a tree Her two best friends know that they have to get rid of the body before it s discovered The two children struggle to find hiding places and to cover up the crime This version also include Yuko a story of a young girl working in a mansion where her master s wife is suspiciously absent The introduction sort of spoils most of the story, [...]

    I think I may have made a mistake here when I readBlack Fairy Tale first Though this bonus pack of two shorter stories was just as evocatively and perfectly written translated, I should say, so it s extra special that such beauty makes its way into the English language on translation the stories themselves just weren t as complex and well drawn out, written while Otsuichi was much younger The first story is the one that the title of the whole collection comes from A story that is written from th [...]

  8. Cmadler

    Summer, Fireworks, and My Corpse was the first published work by Japanese horror writer Otsuichi Written in 1996, while the author was still in high school, this novella shows the aftermath of the murder of a young girl, told from the point of view of her corpse It s an odd story, and although quite interesting, it s awkwardly told and almost entirely without emotion It s hard to say whether that was the fault of the author or the translator, but given that Nathan Collins translated Black Fairy [...]

    Summer, Fireworks and My Corpse is a beautiful example of Japan s unique sense of gothic literature I found the first story beautiful if a bit slow at times, and I loved the ending However, I felt like there were bits of the story telling that were lost in translation The second story wasn t as strong as the first but is another example of strong gothic literature Overall, a quick, fun and well written read Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for approving my request for a free digital copy in [...]

    A quick, but lovely readOtsuichi has a way of making stories that have characters and situations that feel like they could take place anywhere, its one of the few reasons I took to enjoying his writing when I first read Calling You This book is similar, although ultimately tragedies, the horror in this book is lesser than Goth and has a sense of sympathy for the people in the stories.I d recommend it for those who enjoy his writing style, but I found it to be a shorter book and something I would [...]
