Tokyo Bandwagon: this book saved my life

That was only one book I was able to read and comprehend.  It was the only book that woke up my brain and all my senses.  I was able to cry and I felt the pain for the first time since he passed.

There are 2 things I can’t live without, good food and good books.  Sometime in 2007, I was struggling hard.  I could not eat and could not read.  I tried and tried to open many books and read but my brain was not processing any letters, words, and sentences.  But finally I found one that I could read and feel and it is called “Tokyo Bandwagon” written by Yukiya Shoji, Japanese author.  I still haven’t figured out why this book was the only one I could read but it really does not matter.  The important thing is that this book made me realize that I was alive.  I just heard news about the brand new book (8th book of ongoing series) will be published this coming April and my heart jumped for joy.  Only 3 more months to go.

I am forever thankful.  This book saved my life.

    Wow! That’s great that a piece of literature affected and helped you so much. I hope you enjoy the upcoming sequel as well. Nice post!

        I’d have to say The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides and the Harry Potter series are both special to me. The Virgin Suicides is a startling, beautifully written work that reminds me of the impact words can have on a reader. It is so gorgeously written that I couldn’t help but fall in love with it. And I grew up with Harry Potter and remember waiting breathlessly and excitedly for each consecutive Potter book to be out in bookstores. Thanks for the reply!
