Rashomon and Seventeen Other Stories - Yoshihiro Tatsumi, Ryūnosuke Akutagawa, Jay Rubin, Haruki Murakami

DNF @ 39%

These stories are not bad but I just can’t muster any real enthusiasm for them.

It is not helped by the stories being unconnected and by themselves not being great examples of the short story format.

Of course, they were not written as short stories in the Western literary sense. It’s just that the way they are written is boring me stiff.

Maybe I’ll pick this up again at a later date, but right now, this is not working for me.
