Me at the beginning Racism in Japan Did you say that correctly Are you sureMe at the end Wow there s a lot to be learnt about the world and who knew YA books could be such eye openers maybe I ve been reading the wrong type of YA all my lifeAnyway now that my earlier ignorance has been covered here s how I d rate it I d give the first 50% five stars the next 20% three stars and the final 30% four stars Overall the book was immensely enjoyable the protagonist was witty and had this style of narration that really captivated me He s kinda how I d have liked my inner monologue to sound when I was his age the right amount of wit two tablespoons of sarcasm and healthy disdain and a pinch of those pesky teenage hormones And the thing is despite all this coolness it s still obvious that he s young and that he s not in control of everything the way we tend to believe at that age I should explain Why did my father who was born on the South Korean island of Jeju have North Korean citizenship And why did he have to change his citizenship to South Korean just to go to Hawaii It s a tedious story so I ll try to keep it short and mix in some humor here and there But don t hold your breath This book should really have been marketed as a young adult book because while for the first 50% it s really not noticeable that s exactly the genre this book should be classified under The thing is I went in prepared multiple reviews online had warned me that while this book had dry humour that catered to an adult it s central theme is really YA NA And boy was I glad that I went in prepared because otherwise I might have been pissed off the way uite a few other reviewers were And also this should have really tipped everyone off hmmm See below First let s get one thing straight The story that follows is a love story My love story And communism or democratism pacifism otakuism vegetarianism or any other ism for that matter has got nothing to do with it Just so you know Full of movie and literature references that I only half caught Go tells the story of a young adult of Korean descent living in Japan and his trials and tribulations with first love Sounds like a cheesy anime Let s throw in the fact that racism abounds in Japan towards these Korean desecendants of war prisoners from decades ago aka the Zainichi and it s not your uintessential drama filled romantic anime is itI haven t read the Japanese version but I think this translated one was fantastic Everything about this book was fantastic and it was especially fantastic in the way in which it dealt with serious themes like racism and violence so wonderful that I wish it really hadn t had that teen romance thrown in I d have been ecstatic with Sugihara s acerbic observations on life reallyAbout the girl who will be his future love interest I once saw a video of this bear cub sniffing curiously at a video camera and then slamming right into it The girl reminded me of that cub A conversation with his friend Kato who happens to be the wittier one Nah Whoever she is it doesn t matter Yeah you re right Kato said looking happy for some reason This all sounds like a lot of fun like something out of the movies So long as it doesn t turn out to be a mystery or a suspense thriller The bell chimed the end of lunch period Kato rose from his seat As an objective viewer I d prefer seeing a horror or occult film It d be exciting to see your wiener get lopped off or something Kato patted me on the shoulder Best of luck Bonus I m going to provide y all with a sample of Sugihara s wisdom you won t be disappointed People like you and me have been handicapped our whole lives We re like twins If people like us are going to get anywhere in this country we can t just walk in through the front door You get that don t you We can lay low in the shadows and make it big and stick it to all the uppity miserable bastards that ever discriminated against us Because we can do that Because we re meant for greatness One last uote which makes me ponder about immigration issues Nationality isn t much than a lease to an apartment I said If you don t like the apartment any you break the lease and get out Guess Trump doesn t see it that way huhI went insane with the highlighter on this one that s the real thing to take back from this review I recommend it for anyone who loves House MD who doesn t mind a bit of YA thrown at themAlso thank you NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review
