Life for Sale - Book 2/52 (2020) - 2020/01/14

Read a paperback this time around, caught my eye in a bookstore on the weekend.

Book link: Life for Sale - Yukio Mishima.

Nihilist theme, the story follows a Japanese worker who has a failed suicide attempt. Following this they decide to put their life up for sale in a newspaper advertisement, since they see very little reason to live.

Enjoyed it for the most part, read over 2 days. Story did get a little far fetched and I didn’t feel quite fulfilled by the ending, could have used a bit more closure.
