    Thomas Tessler, devastated by a tragedy, has cloistered himself in his bedroom and shut out the world for the past three years. His wife, Silke, lives in the next room, but Thomas no longer shares his life with her, leaving his hideout only in the wee hours of the night to buy food at the store around the corner from their Manhattan apartment. Isolated, withdrawn, damaged, Thomas is hikikomori. Desperate to salvage their life together, Silke hires Megumi, a young Japanese woman attuned to the hikikomori phenomenon.

    Any additional comments?

    I thought the synopsis of this book sounded really interesting, but I was very disappointed. I felt like the overall story lacked depth. I didn't really like any of the characters very much which made it very hard for me. I kept listening because I hoped it would get better but it didn't.
