海角七号 Cape No. 7

When you see the title, maybe you will think that I am going to talk about this movie. But you are wrong. I am going to talk about the book instead of the movie.

I bought this book Cape No. 7 together with the Gidden's 后青春期的诗. I never go out for the countdown because I need to wake up early for work on 1st Jan. I have nothing to do so I started to read it. I finished it just in hours.

The movie Cape No. 7 was a big hit in Taiwan. In Malaysia, I think it is only going to show in the cinema this month, maybe, I am not so sure about it. I have the movie with me, but I not yet watch it. When I saw the book in Popular, I bought it.


The story is about a young man (should not say young anymore, he is already 32 years old) with a music dream but his dream crashed in Taipei. He went back to his hometown and many things happen. At the same time, the story goes to a Japanese girl whose father passed away, found his father's secret when she went back to their old house. It's the love letter from his father to a lady in Taiwan 60 years ago. She then send the letter to the address No.7 Cape and hope to fulfill her father's wish. The address is no longer there and somehow, the young man got the package (He replaced the postman to deliver letter). There are still many characters in this story who are inter connected to each other.

I am not good at story telling. This is just a brief one. If you want to know what is happening next, you can try to either read the book or watch the movie. I am going to watch the movie in these few days.
