Lists with This Book. Love is a form of violence that forces you to think. There is not much to think about in living for oneself alone. Seeing only oneself is equivalent to seeing nothing. Only through love for someone outside of ourselves do we start thinking about the world and the meaning of true love, life and death. Even if you think you’ve exhausted a subject, after a while you start feeling you haven’t. And then you can think about it some m Love is a form of violence that forces you to think.
And then you can think about it some more. Eventually, your thoughts gain a reality. The things that actually happen, people forget about right away.
But the things that never come true stay in our hearts forever. I’m talking about the things called dreams and longings. I think it’s our feelings for these that sustain the beauty of life. All the things that didn’t happen have come true, as beauty. If I took it in, I would fall apart.
Like a frozen flower petal given a snap of the fingers, my heart would shatter to pieces. View all 11 comments. Dec 09, Virginia Books rated it it was ok Shelves: Not the oranges and reds I was expecting.
Socrates in Love – Wikipedia
Not even the feared black darkening it all. The thing is that I was a mess at the en Maybe 2. But the crying came from that fact and that fact only. Do I have any sense?
This is a tale of little things, moments kyoicchi situations lived between our protagonist during the short time they have together. This was not what I was looking for and it bored me a bit between tear and tear To my Spanish friends: In Spain the tittle is completely different if you want to try the translated version.
So, if you are in the mood for a teenage drama, a sweet tragedy, read it. This book has inspired katayaam comic, a TV series in Japan and a movie Does it sound superficial? Reviews for Book Lovers View all 13 comments.

Ve lo consiglio caldamente dopo tanti anni di distanza. Es un libro bonito. Me mantuve expectante hasta el final. Le doy cuatro estrell Es soceates libro bonito.
Un toque de sal. Tre stelle e mezzo. Uscito prima dell’esplosione del trend “love stories strappalacrime di adolescenti malati o agonizzanti per altri motivi”, questo romanzo giapponese affronta il tema con una delicatezza che ho apprezzato molto. Molto Tre stelle e mezzo.

The parts that I liked the most are those that make more references to mourning and loss in a general way, and in which philosophical and moral questions are raised about the loss of an important person in your life.

Un racconto a ritroso, in prima persona, che evoca l’importanza del ricordo, lo scorrere incessante del tempo, la paura della morte e, soprattutto, la forza dell’amore.
Socrates In Love
L’amore di due adolescenti che sperano kyoichii potersi amare in eterno. La descrizione dei paesaggi porta il lettore in quei luoghi, a contatto con le persone che li abitano e con le loro tradizioni. Puedo entender por que a tanta gente le gusta este libro, aquellas pe 3. Pero creo que el principal problema que tuve con este libro fue su comienzo. No puedo creer que la ln haya comenzado con la muerte de la chica y no, no es spoiler.
La historia es demasiado cursi y reflexiva para mi gusto, en serio, este tipo de historias no son lo mio. Long enough to be a well-told story, yet short enough for readers not to fall asleep.
I intentionally took the book from my roommate’s bookshelf as a type of sleeping pill when the computer was not available, keeping in mind the idea that “this is gonna another stupid love story”.
I even kept calling it “Socrates in Hell” as my personal socates of sarcasm for love tends to grow years after years. The book turned out to be great! In terms of small details, Katayama’s story telling is unbelievable, c Long enough to be a well-told story, yet short enough for readers not to fall kyoidhi.
In terms of small details, Katayama’s story telling is unbelievable, considering his age when writing about teenagers. Don’t be fooled by the word “teenagers’, because you’ll lov love at its true meaning and at its purest level. Personally, I’ve got fed up with sex getting in the way of almost every story and film or animated movie recently not that it is of unimportance, but they put too much stress into physical contact.
By “unbelievable”, I mean the author created exceptionally good characters. Matsumoto Sakutaro and his grandfather: A youngster that has a large part of kztayama old man, and an old man whose heart socraets of a youngster in the spring. Sakutaro’s dialogue or monologue was always the part I like the most about “Socrates in love”.
Romanticism never fails to confirm its root in most of our readers, Katayama Kyoichi once again proves that. My general impression of the book is that it suits to be the content of a kattayama anime, from the scenic background of the story the temple, the beach, the street, the sunset, etc. I heard “Socrates in Love” was adapted into movie and manga and will definitely take a look over those versions. My words have certainly failed to describe the essence of its beauty because of the limitation of verbal words themselves and the limitation of my own personal ability to express.
But you should check it out! Feb 07, Kate rated it really liked it Shelves: Okay so I binge read this in 1 day obviously, and I loved it. We follow “Saku-chan” who is a teenage boy, in love with his best friend since childhood, Aki. You know from the very beginning that Aki has recently died. The author then takes you through katyaama life together, from the moment the two met, up until Aki’s passing.
This story was beautiful, and extremely relateable on a lot of aspects. It brought up a lot of great conversations too such as faith is there a heaven?
