Reading level: elementary
My rating: 3.5 out of 5
I actually thought this was short stories when I picked it up, but it turned out to be a short novel. A young boy sees someone who looks exactly like him and ends up being tricked into entering the world of dreams. It turns out each person has their own dream world and this tells of the boy's journey from one person's dream world to the next. Like the other stuff of Shin'ichi's that I've read, the vocabulary and sentence structure are simple and easy to follow. The few times I was tempted to look up the meaning of words, they ended up meaning exactly what I suspected based on context clues.
Side note... a little sad this community has gone defunct. I'm trying to get back into reading Japanese, so I'll post this in case anyone is still watching.
