Book Review: Go by Kazuki Kaneshiro, Takami Nieda (Translator)

This is one of the books from Amazon’s World Book Day.

GoGo by Kazuki Kaneshiro
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I randomly stumbled onto this book through Amazon Crossing, and wasn’t at all sure about it, as ‘coming of age’ stories really don’t attract me at all, but being curious I gave it a try and I was drawn into the cultural relevance of this story from the start.

It’s a very easy read and not particularly long, but I feel as though I have been quite dramatically educated on Japanese culture and Japanese society.

Excellent translation! Highly recommended reading!
