異人たちとの夏 Ijintachi to no Natsu

review ð 異人たちとの夏 Ijintachi to no Natsu 107 characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Taichi Yamada Cile par scrise chiar de el de vreme ce ii exprima cele mai ascunse dorinte parintii pe care i a pierdut cand era mic si ale caror chipuri abia si le mai aminteste se intorc in via. This was first time reading Taichi Yamada This book struck me as very similar to Tomoyuki Hoshino s ME Both authors are riffing off Haruki Murakami s brand of magical realism but lack the startling charm of the pop phenom enfante terribleYamada s prose is readable depicting the main character s thoughts transparently The main character writes for television Yamada himself wrote for television The book reads like a television script in some ways This led to the same dilemma Hoshino s book had as well as Seicho Matsumoto s Pro Bono They keep recapping at the beginning of each chapter as if the reader can t be trusted to remember what happened twenty pages ago In a sense it s just dumbed down crime fiction But is rather bland in terms plot character motivations twists humor and suspense There was very little to absorb me in this book except for the laid back air the cozy mystery at the heart of the novel which if you read the product description lays it out for you plainly It s meant to be a uick read demanding little thought A disposable conceit and is completely unconvincing in my opinionIf you ve finished all of Japanese crime fiction s best examples you might give this a try Comparing this to Shuichi Yoshida s two English translations Yamada looks like a joke If I am to believe the author bio he s attained celebrity status in his home country Perhaps it s an acuired taste like Matsumoto That s why I plan to at least try his other novels

review ð 異人たちとの夏 Ijintachi to no Natsu 107 characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Taichi Yamada Coplesit de singuratate in urma unui divort care l a instrainat nu doar de sotie ci si de fiul lui Hideo Harada devine pe neasteptate personajul unui scenariu fantast in care repli. Very brief this reads uickly it is easy to read as well If like myself you are a fan of Japanese ghost stories you re going to see the end coming on this one right away so that kind of spoiled it for me because this story is very much in line with the old traditional type of ghostly tale from Japan A brief summaryHarada san Hideo is in his mid 40s is a scriptwriter for television who isn t working all that much any and lives alone having been recently divorced and never taking enough time to see his college age son He lives in Tokyo in an apartment which is an office building by day but which during the night has maybe one or two lit windows that one can see from the outside He is just a drab little man with a blah life Many years ago when he just a boy I think he was 12 he was waiting for his parents to return home but they never did His mom and dad were doubled on a bike when they were hit from behind in a hit and run accident He was sent to live with his grandmother but then she died then sent to live with his uncle who sent him to college and then died Well as it turns out one day it was Hideo s birthday and he got a bee in his bonnet to go to his birthplace of Akasuka When he arrived he walked into a mediocre comedy club pretty much kept going by tour bus crowds and there he saw a man that looked just like his father It looked so much like his dad that he couldn t help but to keep looking at the guy At the end of the performance the strange man invited Harada san to come home with him for a beer so Hideo goes When he arrives the strange man s wife is there and she is the spitting image of his mother From there the tale gets stranger and stranger and Hideo Harada finds himself in great danger from the other sideI liked this book Again it was somewhat stilted and formalized in translation but that s easily overcome The dialogue sometimes was kind of silly with little annoying things like money being called dough etc which seems out of context in the story Kind of simplistic in tone although it does delve into the whole search of self by Harada san and why he feels like he must continue to see his parents Harada is a very tragic figure to begin with and by the end of the book I was really pulling for him When a book does that for me then it s a good readOverall recommended but don t look for something along the lines of a Noel Hynd or James Herbert type of ghostthe Japanese really have a great way of ghost story telling and this book fits into the tradition If you are interested in Japanese ghost stories check out those written by Lafcadio Hearn You will so not be sorry
