The Swimmers is a literary promise that never really fulfilled itself for me. It consists of a few different parts, more disjointed than connected, with a few lovely paragraphs.

For me, it was just not engaging at all. Regardless of Otsuka's undeniable skill, I struggled to finish this. Not having to think about it feels like a huge relief.

this is such a beautiful and deeply moving novel! it's a tiny novel that packs an emotional punch. the first half of the story is fun and chuckle worthy. the second half, well, poor alice - the second half is more emotional. it’s a story of a woman who is losing her ability to think just when her adult daughter might be ready to form a bond. it becomes a story of a mother and a daughter and those things that neither understood nor knew about each other. the craft is near perfection. the sentences are powerful. it's tender and funny and clever. and really enjoyed, even though it's so sad, how it got progressively more emotional as the story went on. i just really enjoyed this book… (mais)

CW: Animals are harmed early in the book. DNF. This is not the quarantine book I need right now.
