I came across Renae Lucas-Halls “Tokyo Tales…” upon looking for books on Japan / Japanese literature, which I’m really into. It’s been hard to find new books that really speak of contemporary Japan, and since I’ve travelled there a lot – Tokyo in particular – and lived there a few times, I wanted to get something that felt both authentic, in terms of feeling like it captured the world that I encountered when I was there, but also provided me stories that brought to life characters who could show me much more than I’d already experienced.

For me the stories in the middle of the novel, are where the novel starts to shine. They start to tell heart warming tales and reel you in with great hooks and premises. I've read through this entire novel in a couple of days, trying to read it in pieces and savor the great parts of the novel. My favorite story would have to be Perfection, as it was beautifully written and easily relatable.

I admit, I'm totally obsessed with all things Japan and Japanese culture. Tokyo Tales indulges that obsession for me in written fiction form, and reminded me at times of reading manga and at times of reading an adventure fiction book or old Japanese myth.
