Book Review: Read Real Japanese Fiction

This book got the format just right: the insightful, detailed grammar explanations also illustrate the nuances and variations in style of the various stories. It seems odd, but I learned as much about story telling as I did Japanese. In the end, I’m not sure if these stories quite convinced me, but they at least held me in enough suspense to get me through the book. This book beats working through a textbook any day.
