Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa
What would you do if you received a letter from a friend telling you that they are dead and that they have planted clues all over for you to find? Well that is exactly what happened to Mr. Constable. He received that said letter from his friend, Tomomi “Butterfly” Ishikawa. Mr. Constable goes on this treasure hunt accompanied by his imaginary cat.
Where to start with my review of this book? How about…Be warned as you just might need to book an appointment with a psychologist after reading this book!
It is not that I have anything bad to say about it but it is just that this is the type of book that you have to digest for a while after finishing it before attempting to put your thought down on paper. This is because this is exactly the type of book that Mr. Constable wrote. One that gets into your mind and plays tricks on you. It will have you feeling both confused but intrigued at the same time. I know I was but in a good way.
Mr. Constable is the real talent here with his genius mind. Although reading this book I also thought that Butterfly was a good storyteller as well. It takes a creative mind to lead someone on an elaborative treasure hunt across Paris and spanning to New York City. Also, there was one last star in this book and that was Cat. Yes, he may be imaginary but he had personality.
