    EBOOK ✓ EPUB 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimi ì HardcoverFREE ë KENZO KITAKATA 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimiThere it was Eyeing me I'd never read Japanses hard boiled before and I wasn't sure if I should start now Reluctantly I grabbed the book and started reading Bullets Death Dames Fifty pages later I knew I had to do something about this book When I brought it back to the library the libraian looked at me with nervous eyes This book had hardly ever been checked out since being acuired It was good I said She never asked me but I told her anyway She didn't smile at me; she didn't react in any manner I walked away from the counter A smile was on my face Who knew middle aged gangster lit was my cup of tea? There are titles by this Kitakata guy I'll see if they can match the pleasure gained by reading this oneUntil then I know who the real yakuzo isHIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    EBOOK ✓ EPUB 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimi ì HardcoverFREE ë KENZO KITAKATA 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimiThe prose was spare The mood hardboiled The narrator an antihero At times of a character study of a mid life crisis yakuza style than a plot exactly you had to add the story yourself which was a chore at first but after a while a pleasurable one Our hero was a nasty piece of work but still our hero even though he did some unheroic things Was there a perverted sense of justi

    EBOOK ✓ EPUB 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimi ì HardcoverFREE ë KENZO KITAKATA 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimiI liked this than most of the GR reviews I've seen The book is episodic and the plot is minimal But the thread is there and runs from beginning to end The book follows a Yakuza boss named Tanaka The first half follows him in the third person the second in the first person And he proves to be a fairly interesting character The other characters are also well drawn and interesting especially the women And the topic of the book is after all rather existential It has elements of Dave Goody George Higgins Truffaut and I don't know what Japanese elements Except drier Anyway it's a very short and uick read and an interesting one

    EBOOK ✓ EPUB 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimi ì HardcoverFREE ë KENZO KITAKATA 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimiA great piece of introspective hardboiled Japanese fiction Instead of a detective as so many writers of hardboiled fiction are apt to fall back on likely and rightly in attempts to follow the success of Raymond Chandler et al it tells a story centered in yakuza politics – played close enough to the chest not to give too much away but enough that the personal experience of a middle aged yakuza is very real to the reader The first half is written in the third person with fairly little clues as to who the man we’re watching might be but it doesn’t suffer any for it It gives you the sort of feeling you get when you sit in a room and listen to the conversations other

    EBOOK ✓ EPUB 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimi ì HardcoverFREE ë KENZO KITAKATA 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimiFantastic Yakuza story The first half is spoken from the main character's point of view in his own voice The second half is related in the third person Inside the man Outside the man Which is the real man? Which man is better? Is this not every man's issue in life?Our mid range Yakuza member is being groomed to take some control start his own sub gang with him as boss However he doesn't want it He's basically a street thug and he knows it and he's happy with that He must accept the change though as change is part of life Ashes gives us a great glimpse into the Yakuza world without being overbearing about it Readers familiar with Yakuza practices ie cutting off a joint of the pinky finger as an act of contrition or obedience will note these authentic details other readers will still enjoy

    EBOOK ✓ EPUB 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimi ì HardcoverFREE ë KENZO KITAKATA 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimiI just finished reading Kenzo Kitakata’s Ashes It was a really intriguing read about a middle aged Japanese yakuza The book sounded so intriguing before I bought it I have been on a Japanese novel kick ever since I read Out by Natsuo Kirino But the first couple of dozen pages seems really boring and slow It was told in two parts one from the outside with the main character Tanaka being seen in third person The second part of the book was told from Tanaka’s internal perspective The staccato pace of the sentences and thoughts seemed disconnected at the beginning of the book; however it developed into a solid rhythm as the book progressed I’d highly recommend this book to read

    EBOOK ✓ EPUB 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimi ì HardcoverFREE ë KENZO KITAKATA 棒の哀しみ Bō no kanashimiA solid piece of Yakuza fiction though I can't say I'm aware of there really being a genre for this kind of stuff The first half or so is episodic and the second half is an actual organized story It's worth a read if you think the Yakuza is at least sort of interesting
