Like in other if her books, Sakuragi challenge readers with many questions regarding females' self-determination of our sexual needs. Does it get nastier if a girl ask for sex? Does it necessarily mean that a girl is 100% willing to have sex even if she physically ask for it? Even if one is willing to have sex against will, does it really mean that they're "willing"? Or do they just get numb from the sexism and give in? In the seven short stories, main characters get neither a happy ending, nor a sad ending - they get something blurry in between, which gives the book a vibe that really weighs you down. However, the plot of the stories are not particularly interesting to me, probably because the primary purpose of this book is to make people think, instead of to tell a fun story. But it's just my opinion, it could just because I don't know the Japanese society well enough to be interested by it. [The variety of books we read should not be limited by geographic borders; and in a world where language is not a limitation anymore, translated versions of books are more than just a version out of a hundred- they are gateways to understand other people's culture!] - #女權 #書中自有黃金屋 #閱讀 #社會 #好書推介 #皇家賓館 #櫻木紫乃 #ホテルローヤル #bookclub #bookworm #book #HoteruRoyaru #feminism #followme #follow4follow
