Socrates In Love

Many years ago I posted about an odd Japanese film here. You will notice that I said that it doesn't appear to be translated into English, despite it allegedly being the best selling novel of all time in Japan. Well, I looked it up again and found that it had been translated, as Socrates In Love.
So, I bought it. In summary I would say very pedestrian writing, though that could be the translation, and almost everything good about the film didn't seem to be in the book.
Hey ho. I am mystified.
