Naoko

by Keigo Higashino

I was expecting evocative prose and high cultural Japanese drama, so this was surpringly a very easy read. It felt very much like a western storyline set in a loose oriental context. This novel offers a slightly different perspective to the basic plot of mother and daughter switching bodies. Enjoyable and light.

'Oh,' he said, wondering what else he could say under the circumstances. Then he thought of something: if it had been the real Monami going through this experience, they certainly wouldn't be responding to it in such a dazed manner: they would be celebrating. So he said: 'Well then, Congratulations!'
