舟を編む Fune O Amu Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook A charmingly warm and hopeful story of love friendship and the power of human connection Award winning Japanese author Shion Miura’s novel is a reminder that a life dedicated to passion is a life well livedInspired as a boy by the multiple meanings to be found for a single word in the dictionary Kohei Araki is devoted to the notion that a dictionary is a boat to ca How can a book about a small department at a publishing house creating a dictionary be so wonderful Wrapped up in the main story about the creation of the dictionary there are three different stories about the people in the dictionary department One is about a man who learns to connect with people one is a woman who learns not to judge others and the other is about a man who learns that it s ok to show that you care about thingsThe translator has done a great job There is a lot of discussion about the meaning and origin of words and I m impressed by how these have been translated from the original Japanese to still make sense in English A couple of times I had to re read paragraphs a few times to follow the meanings but the majority of them were easy to followThe geeky side of me enjoyed the bits about describing words and the look at how a dictionary is created The three stories with their uirky characters provide a warm human element that I could connect withI enjoyed this a lot than I expected to It made me smile while I was reading it and even though the ending has some sad moments it left me happier and I m glad I took a chance on it Also I love the cover
