Potentially Great Book Let Down By The TranslatorThis was a potentially really interesting book looking at Japan during and after the war about Japanese society and interpersonal relationsI loved the narrative style of weaving between present events and Hamada s memories during the war Hamada himself as well as almost all the characters are unpleasant people but I liked the narrativeHoweverThe translator ruined my experience of the book As an academic and translator he translated this novel in a way that made it sound like an academic text The language was dry directly translated so conversations read disjointed not a single character had any personalityIt was also ruined by the extremely long translators note at the start of the novel that SPOILS THE WHOLE STORY If you do want to read this SKIP the translators note and read it after you finish He aims to educate the reader but instead ruins the whole reading experience as you the reader are no longer surprised by events which happenAn additional issue which makes this book inaccessible to the general reader is the fact that this is an academically published novel Which means it s incredibly expensiveOverall a disappointingly dry read
