Fantastic Book! The Authors first book written while teaching English in Japan is a brilliant start to his career.

His imagery is evocative and story enthralling. Fantastic lead up to the second book in the story.

If you are a fan of the genre this is a book well worth reading.

I may be getting tired of reading about young men's coming of age stories. I found myself thinking that I really didn't care about this or that tragedy, which were probably defining moments in his young life.....I just wanted to get to the man's story, not the boy's. But this book doesn't have that part of the story.
The author does do a pretty good job of the Japanese setting and some of the characters are quite good. It was an easy and fast read but not a book I liked.
