If you're looking for a good read during these quiet autumnal evenings, 'Who is Mr Satoshi?' could be the perfect book for you.
Central to the story is Foss, a talented photographer who has withdrawn from society; his creative juices in a state of limbo since the tragic loss of his wife. Who is Mr Satoshi, draws Foss from the comforts of his broken down reclusive life in England, and thrusts him on a plane to Japan to help solve a mystery left by his own mothers death. In fact, it's on the very day she dies, that his mother leaves a package for one Mr Satoshi, advising that it must be delivered to him, somehow. A slight problem though, no-one has Mr Satoshi's address. You sense the wheels of change slowly turning for Foss from that day as you join him on a rollercoaster ride from London to Tokyo to Hokkaido, with a number of colourful local characters in tow.
Without revealing too much, I will say that within Foss' story there is a gem of a bittersweet love from a bygone era which will touch your heart. Yes, a few tears were shed. I know, I know - I'm such a girl really. I read this entire book on a sunday evening and couldn't sleep until I finished it. I had to know, did he find Mr Satoshi? Book reviews are subjective but what I do when I finish a book is ask myself this question. Would I read it again? -Yes, absolutely.
Who is Mr Satoshi is the debut novel by Mr Jonathan Lee, available in hardcover copy, or kindle version via Amazon.com. You can read more about Mr Satoshi's author at his website here. I'm looking forward to his next book already.
A/N: I have been indulging my bookstack lately and plan to bring more reviews across a number of genres in the near future. Happy reading and writing this weekend lovelies! I shall be curling up on my favourite sofa with my latest read, and my beloved netbook. How about you?
