    1. Unimpressed really This book contained a few mildly interesting stories but majority of the content barely kept my interest Maybe I would have enjoyed it if I was reading it on my way to Japan for the first time As it is, I knew many of the so called strange stories before, and there weren t many truly strange stories contained in this account anyway.


    2. This is a rare example of a book I m unable to finish I ve rarely read anything less engagingly written, which should be literary crime enough But his ethnocentric sneering, and frequent misogynistic commentary is so off putting to me that I just can t persevere.
