so glad it did not dissapoint. I cant relate to the characters cause ive never been through what they have. But im glad i didnt have much to relate to cause i got to see new perspectives and reactions and i love the fact that the end was open for interpretation. The narrator finally gets to see clearly (physically and emotionally) how the world looks and what he needs to do. Whether he took Kojima's philosophy or Momose's is unknown and thats brilliant because thats exactly how reality is. Everyone has their own opinions and thouguts and we often form ours form theirs. The journey we took with the narrator who didnt know what to make out of his situation to believing in kojima's thoughts to questioning himself after his talk with momose to finally coming to his own conclusion. I didnt quite agree with either one's philosophies so id like to think the narrator knew better which is why the open end was so important, cause not everyone will have the same thoughts.
