It s hard to define this book under one category Does it have a substantiated plot or is it non fiction Autobiography or biographic Documentary or fictional It probably has a little bit of everything This is a human document that allows us to get a glimpse of the Japanese society I personally find the Japanese culture to be very intriguing so when I heard there was a book describing the Yakuza the Japanese mafia I knew I had to read it The book begins rather slowly and mostly focuses on Adelstein s adjustment to the unwritten rules of working as a criminal reporter for the most popular newspaper in Japan Along with his own personal story Adelstein reveals a few surprising facts about the Japanese society eg Japan s bestsellers lists point out that suicide is not only common in Japan but also considered popular and acceptable The attitude towards sexuality in Japan may also surprise you Trying to sell out this book as a thrust into the heart of Japanese Yakuza is wrong The part about the Yakuza does have substance but only toward the end of the book I think this book infiltrates the heart of entire Japan and even if the writing isn t brilliant those who have an interest in the Japanese culture would find this book as worth the read
