Please read and make a refission for you Shin'ichi Hoshi (19261997) is considered to be one of Japan's most influential science fiction writers of all time but he's not very well known among western readers, I think A few of his works have been translated and are available as ebook, including this little book You can find outabout Hoshi here.Kimagure Robotto, or, The Whimsical Robot, is a fun little book containing 'short shorts': short stories of nothan 5 pages each Each of the stories is about an invention, whether it's a device to tame wild animals, a potion that enables you to distinguish good from bad people, or a robot that has everyone wondering about its use There are some characters that appear in many of the stories, like professor R who makes medicine, the rich Mr N., and professor K who specialises in animals Then there are a few stories about interaction with aliens The stories are aimed at children but are quite enjoyable for adults too Some of the stories are really funny, some leave you wondering, some leave you shaking your head, and some are (I have to admit) a bit boring.I do have a few favourite stories Coincidentally the stories I most enjoyed were near the back of the book: ネコ(The cat), 花とひみつ(Flowers and secrets), and とりひき(The deal) It's hard to say something about stories that are this short, so I won't say anything to avoid spoiling.As for its readability, this book was a really easy read This is the first Japanese book I've ever read that felt like I was reading English or Dutch, which essentially means that the level of Japanese was probably too low for me I finished most of the stories in 510 minutes (during commercial breaks when I was watching television haha) and I only had a to look up a few recurring words such as 'telescope' I think this book is very suitable as practice material for those at JLPT N3 level.Would I recommend this book? If you want to gain some confidence in your Japanese skills: hell yes But if you're looking for a captivating read, probably not I personally really enjoy short stories in Japanese, mostly because I tend to find full books a bit hard to swallow, but the stories in this collection got a bit repetitive There simply wasn't much incentive to keep reading, which is the main reason this book took me such a long time On the other hand, if you decide to read one or two stories now and then (with decent breaks in between), it's certainly a fun read. 面白いんですが、大人になった今となっては少し物足りないと感じた。星新一さんの他の本を読んだ後に本書を読むと、子供向けに書かれた童話であることが分かると思います。一方で、童話として読んだとしたら、これほど面白い童話もないだろう。つまり、どのような立場で読むかによって評価が分かれるのではないだろうか。私は大人の自分という立場で読んだので、★の数は少なめです。でも、けっしてつまらないわけではなく、人間の欲望を皮肉ったような星新一さんのオチとかは面白いんです。人間の本質をお話にしてもらっている感じなので、小中学生には、人間や人生について少し哲学的なことを考え始める前に読んでほしいなと思いました。 A collection of shortshorts by Hoshi Shinichi originally published in the Sunday editions of Japan's Asahi Newspaper These supershort stories (the longest of which is seven pages) are modern fables with elements of scifi, each with a punch line and a bit of truth Written for gradeschoollevel readers, the tales range from quirky to absurd to grim; all are original, and many give pause for thought The most memorable story to me is Omiyage, or The Gift, in which benevolent aliens land on Earth long before humans have evolved, hoping to impart their wisdom Since there are no people yet, they construct and leave behind a vessel containing a guide kit to solving humanity's biggest problems: blueprints for space ships, instructions for medicine that will cure any disease (even reverse aging), a book with the secrets to world peace, and, of course, an illustrated dictionary for translating their alien language They take care to leave the vessel where it will not fall into the sea or be buried by volcanic eruptions in the years it will take for the human race to be ready to receive this knowledge: they choose a desert The years pass and their plan works—the vessel endures But instead of being found and utilized for the good of humankind, it is blown up in a nuclear bomb test.While these stories are accessible to children, they hold lessons for us all, even and especially as adults.
