[Kinda Book Review] Kwaidan by Lafcadio Hearn

Book coverThis book has been on my list for a while. I saw the movie many times. It is excellent

The book tho... "The book is better" is not something I will use here. Most of the stories are very short, a few pages, and are not particularly interesting. In fact, the stories are mostly pointless or just end without a resolution. I really wanted to love this but... I did not.

I guess the worse part is that half the book is taken by the author's treatise on insects. There is no point to it and is just filler.

It has historical value but I expected so much more. I'll settle for a 2/5. Watch the movie instead.
