A cruffin is a cross between a muffin and croissant. Muffin shaped, crossiant taste and flakiness albeit with little sponginess texture in middle like a muffin. I had chocolate and mandarin. It had lots of delicious thick chocolate orange filling.
Hot chocolate had good intense chocolately taste.
My order cost just over £6. There was also doughnuts for £2.85 which seemed expensive when can buy 5 pack from supermarkets for £1. However there was a range of doughnut flavours.
I agree with the review that there was a dizzing amount of information. It is not light reading but, think different people could get different things out of it on different levels and perhapas skip past sections not interested in for example detailed scientific explanations of even whole of Uncle Haruki’s diary. I think all you needed to know was how Uncle Haruki crashed plane on purpose the actual diary was not very interesting.
Also agree, it contains big issues; suicide, 9/11, tsunamis. It is interesting for learning about Japanese culture.
I still believe in my theory, first thought after reading first 4 chapters and mentioned, in my post about first impressions; that Nao’s diary was fake. I know have a theory that Ruth was writing the diary; hence no talk pages been present and her dreams.

Don’t regret anything. Remember there wasn’t anything else that could have happened, given who you are and the state of the world at that moment. The only thing you can change is the present, so learn from the past.
