my take: i ordered this without really having any idea what it was about. when checking out on amazon this was a suggested read (people who read this also read…)

somehow i didn’t clue into the fact that it’s a translation from Japanese. the author could have been american …. it started out talking a bit about baseball, so i imagined it in the U.S. … until i realized the team names weren’t all lining up.

the beauty of mathematics, baseball, and kindness are the main subjects of this very quiet and interesting novel….something completely different.

my take: quiet, good read
