This book takes you through the life experiences of the author from childhood to adulthood and the many obstacles he had to face on the journey. It mostly focuses on his accidental obsession with the Japanese culture and using his passion for wanting to write and become a blogger. But like many bloggers they are faced with both love of their supporters and vile hatred of their enemy's who will go to any length to belittle the things they don't understand.
If you were born around 1970 or you are a blogger then this would be a very interesting read and worth looking at.
The author's writing style is entertaining and the story flows naturally. There were a few parts of the book I didn't like because they came across as too self-indulgent. Overall, this is an interesting book for anyone interested in the hive mind in fandom culture or online bullying.
I personally feel that the author was very lenient with his accusers. Being accused of paedophilia because you happen to be a male who follows boy bands is unacceptable. The livejournal users who posted these unfounded allegations should have been sued, they were certainly old enough to face the legal consequences of their actions.
While his experiences had nothing to do with misandry (which is something that doesn't even exist) or homophobia, it is still very unfortunate that so many people thought the very worst about his intentions. To this day they still believe he's a pedophile and a child predator. I know most people won't read this review, but to those out there that think Marcus is a horrible person, I beg them to read this book for the real reasons behind his love for the idol boys. It truly is an entertaining and thought-provoking piece. This book takes the readers on an incredible journey with an addictive writing style that makes it difficult to put the book down.
I look forward to reading Mr. Herzig's upcoming works.
Please, do not support this and please, Amazon, do something about this.
It has value both as a personal journey and as a pop culture document. There is plenty of Kamichan's wit to make you laugh and details never before told of his detractors to cause outrage.
