THIS BOOK IS THE ROOT OF EVIL Mar 31, 2008
An awful abortion of a hollow excuse of a "book." This book is to literature what the Spanish Inquisition is to the Catholic Church: A painful memory that all would prefer to be wiped out forever.
This mystery "thriller" tells the tale of an American woman living in Japan (wherein readers will find nothing but abhorrent stereotypes, i.e. her ex-boyfriend was a samurai who eats dogs he finds on the streets). Also, the overuse of ninjas and Godzilla are further anachronisms in a novel that is fruitlessly trying to be relevant, daring, and realistic.
Simply the worst book I have ever seen. I wish I were blind.
Hard to put down! Apr 20, 2005
This stunning psychological mystery thriller will keep you on the edge of your chair, turning pages as fast as you can in order to find out what is driving Meredith, the main character, to ever more inexplicable and dangerous measures.
Meredith, a young American living in Tokyo, is working hard to move up in the tightly structured business world as a translator and to overcome her recent breakup with her Japanese boyfriend, Keisuke. A difficult boss who oversees translations at work and an ex who just won't let go aggravate the stress to a point where Meredith's anxieties begin surfacing in dreams of violence directed at Keisuke. But what happens when the dreams are something more? Can Meredith get her life back to normal before tragedy strikes?
You'll have to read it to find out but you'll be glad you did!
