Book Description

Peadar had a simple plan: stay for a year or two in Japan, pay off his university debt, do some research on Japanese architecture, master the language, and, what the hell, fool around with the geishas. Then, with his pockets full of yen, he was going to head back to the States, finish graduate school, and begin an illustrious and well-compensated career as an architect. Sixteen months later, where was he? Broke as ever, still speaking broken Japanese, and, worst of all, broken hearted by a woman named Mie. A Woman’s Nails is the story of how Peadar puts Mie to rest one woman at a time.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring and depressing June 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It starts with the protagonist in a job interview while his mind is focused on an upcoming bowel movement. He describes the mess of relieving himself above a Japanese toilet. Wait....it gets better...next he moves on to one bad date after another. He insults every type of Japanese woman he meets and drones on and on about his pathetic miserable life. I couldn't make it through the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A whole lot of grief June 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's too bad that more of the author's brilliance, discipline and classroom observations couldn't have been interspersed throughout the book. The story appeared to be one horrible grief-stricken viewpoint of what it was like to be left by the love of his life in Japan. I realize that such angst would overtake one's soul at such a point when one is 26 or 27 years old, but he actually did observe a lot of other things that were worth reading about. Some wisdom finally came out in the last 10% of the book. I think this book is best read at top speed. Then the total presence of that grief and the repetitiveness of his trying to get out of it, plus the few minor editing errors don't appear so strong. Anyway, the last 10% of the book is worth it. All the characters plus their characterizations stay with you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it May 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the most excruciating boring books I have ever TRIED to read. Really bad. Don't bother, if you're looking a little humor, you won't find it here. The character is a shallow individual looking to soothe his loneliness with one nighters. Downloaded it from prime. Another waste.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Woman's Nails October 28, 2010
By Adi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Aonghas Crowe's has done magnificent work composing this interesting story which gives readers a view of Japanese society and often sexuality in Japanese society. The protagonist, Peador's lost love, his twisted professional life and love life and his search for love in japanese society, gives a very nice plot.

Overall, a splendid story with an impressive description of human emotions. I would strongly recommend to read the story,
