2.5 The Girl Who Leapt Through Time & The Stuff That Nightmares Are Made Of
I feel like this is a really difficult book to review because I can't tell if the problems were with the writing itself or the translation.

1½ stars only, actually...I really thought I'd like this book - premise was great and I usually like the Japanese way of thinking and writing that I've encountered elsewhere (like Haruki Murakami). But this was just quite terrible... I don't know how much of it was due to the translation, but it was...
