Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata

Serenely Unique

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata is a beautiful contemporary novel surrounding the life of the convenience store woman.

This is a very serene novel that soothes the reader’s heart and soul.

We see how convenience store woman mimics others in order to fit in. She lives to work in the convenience store. Her heart and soul desire the routine and predictability of the nature of her work.

In her desire to fit in, convenience store woman tries to be what society tells her she should be – but she was not made to conform to society. Her goal is to simply be a convenience store woman.

The novel is told in the first person from the point of view of the convenience store woman. I liked her, with her honesty, her quirky ways and her desire to fit in. In her desire to blend in, she stands out from the crowd.

Convenience Store Woman was a gentle read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
