Non l ho apprezzato pi di tanto perch non mi coinvolgono particolarmente lo stile o il modo di raccontare, e la storia di per s non mi ha catturata.
Tuttavia interessante leggerlo e conoscerlo nel panorama della letteratura giapponese, specie per la rivoluzione che ha saputo dare.
This might be the worst book I ever read in my life.
This was actually 3 novellas, and the last one was actually pretty good, except for its last page or so But it was nowhere near good enough to save this book from the gutter, because the first 2 are some of the worst things I ve ever read I guess I m a little biased, but I just can t stand most feminist porn, because, I don t know, I guess I m just simple, but can anyone tell me why self identified feminists always write such blatantly abusive, masochistic sex scenes I actually can t think of a single sex scene written by a feminist writer that wasn t violent, and the women in these scenes LOVE it, like, somehow it s a show of a strong woman to enjoy getting the shit kicked out of you Here s a funny part Fuck me, yo Are Japanese people racist This book received a prize He had a great success About what is it An history of love between a Japanese woman and an American black For Japanese it is the top of the transgression A friend spoke to me about their contempt for the inhabitants of Okinawa who have dark skin Spoon, the black character has all the stereotypes robber, deserter, traitor and of course equipped with a large penis For the rest it is level of the Harlequin collection Bad novel.

5 For the better half of this collection of novellas the only word that I could associate with it was mediocre Too much sex talk and definitely overmuch abuse, both physical and emotional coming from both sexes But I wouldn t put this at the same level with modern western erotica romance It is without a doubt better than that There s something compelling about Yamada s writing, despite all that carnal imagery, that becomes apparent with the end of the second novella The Piano Player s Fingers and is than evident in Jesse For me, this compelling something is her knowledge of human nature, and the apparent ease with which she explores human nature through sexuality That being said, I couldn t really stomach the abuse, at times I almost felt nauseated On top of that
