Hell Screen; Cogwheels; A Fool's Life Reviews
Cogwheels and A Fool's Life are the best short stories ever written in the history of humankind. alright, so maybe i'm over-stating... They're lovely, painful stories to read. Gawd, I really like this whole book...
“Hell’s Screen” is a brief but grim tale to rival any work of Poe. “Cogwheels” I found dull, not because I disliked its meandering nature but because I found nothing interesting in it. “A Fool’s Life” was intriguing in its structure, prose, and insight into spiraling mental illness and suicide. Overall, not a strong introduction to this author, but it does leave me interested in reading one of Akutagawa’s novels.
Skillfully written, genuinely disturbing.
Amazing how simple yet complicated and deep ones thoughts may be
Very interesting book. I particularly loved the first story, Hell Screen.
