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.

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.

This is a very interesting novel about Peador, a man that moves to Japan from the States and falls in love with a Japanese girl named Mie. After Mie breaks up with him, Peador has to continue his life in Japan working as an English teacher, a job that he doesn't enjoy much and begins meeting new women in an attempt to forget Mie. The way Mr. Crowe describes Peador's heartbreak and the new girls in his life is brutally honest and yet he manages perfectly well to describe the vulnerability of the man without making him look pathetic, Peador manages to survive homesickness, heartbreak and loneliness. The author also describes exquisitely many interesting/beautiful aspects about Japan's culture. It's a book you won't be able to put down, guaranteed.

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.
