Story of how a little girl killed by her brother and so-called friends.
Otsu Ichi describes the whole story from the little girl's viewpoint and whereas makes the whole story tender, which definitely strengthen the sorrow atmosphere in this story.
It is always a sad thing to find that people around you are actually not trustworthy at all.
Great story (though not very mutual).
Despite all the other comments, this is my favorite Otsu Ichi's work. Yes, my fav.
This is a book that depicts the kind of strong and breathtaking solitude and the eagerness of love.
"Thank you, whoever touches me."
Indeed this book struck my chord, deeply.
Undoubtedly, I would love to read this masterpiece again and again.
