Fiction. Literature. HTML:The English-language debut of one of Japan's most talented contemporary writers, selling over 650,000 copies there, Convenience Store Woman is the heartwarming and surprising story of thirty-six-year-old Tokyo resident Keiko Furukura. Keiko has never fit in, neither in her family, nor in school, but when at the age of eighteen she begins working at the Hiiromachi branch of "Smile Mart," she finds peace and purpose in her life. In the store, unlike anywhere else, she understands the rules of social interactionmany are laid out line by line in the store's manualand she does her best to copy the dress, mannerisms, and speech of her colleagues, playing the part of a "normal" person excellently, more or less. Managers come and go, but Keiko stays at the store for eighteen years. It's almost hard to tell where the store ends and she begins. Keiko is very happy, but the people close to her, from her family to her coworkers, increasingly pressure her to find a husband, and to start a proper career, prompting her to take desperate action...

A brilliant depiction of an unusual psyche and a world hidden from view, Convenience Store Woman is an ironic and sharp-eyed look at contemporary work culture and the pressures to conform, as well as a charming and completely fresh portrait of an unforgettable heroine.

This was incredibly refreshing and relatable. I absolutely loved it. So many books talk about conformity and the ways in which society forces people into boxes, but none quite like this. Keiko is genuinely happy and content with her life. She feels frustrated by how people treat her, but she is ultimately doing what she wants to be doing and in the end she chooses to continue being a convenience store worker despite everything because she genuinely enjoys it. I loved her perspective and it was such a quick, easy read. I can't wait to read more from this author. ( )

A really good read!

I really appreciated being able to see through the eyes of Keiko Furukura, but I did realise that I didn't really find any of the book very funny. This isn't the fault of the book at all, but potentially the marketing? Not to say this was a detractor though, was still fantastic!

Overall I ended up so truly frustrated at everyone around Keiko, the author really doing a fantastic job of evoking those emotions in me in a way that didn't feel like she was intentionally antagonising the reader. It's just that the way the world treated Keiko sucked, and her realising that was really quite sad to see as we the reader also realise that along with her.

This book also contains an amazing representation of the feelings of mourning that arrive not when a loved one has passed away, but mourning loss through change. Be it the loss of the you before you moved away from your family for the first time, or the loss of the version of you that you always dreamed of being when growing up when you realise that it may never be.


Really enjoyed the read, though I feel like it is probably a book that would read very different depending on who you are and your own experiences. ( )

This was an odd reading experience. I enjoyed the parts set in the convenience store, and I thought the audiobook narrator did a great job. Additionally, the protagonist Keiko reads as on the spectrum (though it's never explicitly stated) and it's really good to see the representation.

However, about halfway through the book, Shiraha (the "bitter young man" mentioned in the blurb) gets introduced, and when he starts talking to Keiko more about his views on society the book gets IMO less enjoyable. I was still interested enough to see how it plays out, and the story is short so I didn't feel like I wasted any time reading it.

I liked Keiko's resolution and decision at the end, but before getting there I did get very sick of Shiraha's incel comments and constant reference to society being "stuck in the Stone Age." ( )

Terrifying, quick, and absorbing read. ( )
  Louisasbookclub | Jun 30, 2024 |
Random selection that I sort of enjoyed, but also missed the mark for me. Listen, I am that woman and I'm glad that Keiko listened to her inner animal rather than settling for a man to make everyone happy, but the message was rather loud and very repetitive: So the manual for life already existed. It was just that it was already ingrained in everyone’s heads, and there wasn’t any need to put it in writing. The specific form of what is considered an “ordinary person” had been there all along, unchanged since prehistoric times I finally realized.

And I can't talk about the translation, but I did like the language, particularly comparing the softness of a baby's skin to stroking a blister! What a wonderfully tactile and relatable description. ( )

...for all the disturbance and oddity in “Convenience Store Woman,” the book dares the reader to interpret it as a happy story about a woman who has managed to craft her own “good life.”
adicionado por Lemeritus | editarThe New Yorker, Katy Waldman (Jun 21, 2018)
 
Convenience Store Woman closely observes the inevitable failures of a society to embrace all within it, and the contrasting ways disenfranchised men and women manage to cope... Through the eyes of perceptive, dispassionate Keiko, the ways in which we’re all commodified and reduced to our functions become clear. What’s unclear is what other option we have. We all want to be individuals, and yet we also want to fit in somewhere. We all want to be seen for our own intangible humanity, and yet we see others for their utility.

Murata’s slim and stunning Akutagawa Prize–winning novel follows 36-year-old Keiko Furukura, who has been working at the same convenience store for the last 18 years, outlasting eight managers and countless customers and coworkers.... Murata’s smart and sly novel, her English-language debut, is a critique of the expectations and restrictions placed on single women in their 30s. This is a moving, funny, and unsettling story about how to be a “functioning adult” in today’s world

A sly take on modern work culture and social conformism, told through one woman’s 18-year tenure as a convenience store employee.... Murata provides deceptively sharp commentary on the narrow social slots people—particularly women—are expected to occupy and how those who deviate can inspire bafflement, fear, or anger in others.... A unique and unexpectedly revealing English language debut.
adicionado por Lemeritus | editarKirkus Reviews (Mar 20, 2018)
 
In Sayaka Murata’s “Convenience Store Woman,” a small, elegant and deadpan novel from Japan, a woman senses that society finds her strange, so she culls herself from the herd before anyone else can do it. She becomes an anonymous, long-term employee of the Hiiromachi Station Smile Mart, a convenience store, a kiosk for her floating soul...“Convenience Store Woman” has touched a chord in Japan, where it has sold close to 600,000 copies....I have mixed feelings about “Convenience Store Woman,” but there is no doubt that it is a thrifty and offbeat exploration of what we must each leave behind to participate in the world.

But so far as I could see, aside from a few minor differences they were all just an animal called a baby and looked much the same, just like stray cats all looked much the same.
I find the shape of people's eyes particularly interesting when they’re being condescending. I see a wariness or a fear of being contradicted or sometimes a belligerent spark ready to jump on any attack.  And if they’re unaware of being condescending, their glazed-over eyeballs are steeped in a fluid mix of ecstasy and a sense of superiority.
...you should really either get a job or get married, one or the other...Or better still, you should do both.
I couldn’t stop hearing the store telling me the way it wanted to be, what it needed.  It was all flowing into me. It wasn’t me speaking. It was the store. I was just channeling its revelations from on high
