This was a very unusual story and my opinions on it varied far and wide as I read it.

I think the best word to describe the first part of the book when the characters are stranded on the island would be disturbing. Yuichi’s physicial attraction to Imakura was gobsmacking. I couldn’t honestly understand how Yuichi was turned on by Imakura when he kept saying he was fat, wrinkled, had a quadruple chin and a thumb sized penis. There was absolutely nothing sexy about him and it made no sense.

Don't Worry Mama is unconventional in at least one aspect. One of the characters is fat and he is mean-spirited.

Yuichi works under Imakura and the two of them are sent on a business trip to gather herbs on an isolated island. Yuichi didn't volunteer to go. Imakura chose Yuichi out of all the other employees because Yuichi is the only one that doesn't snicker or gossip about Imakura's weight and his overbearing attitude. The trip takes a disastrous turn when the boat that dropped them off at the

Some parts of this book are very disturbing and unsettling, left me with a bad taste in my mouth,especially in the beginning of the book, i hardly liked any character and the way the book kept on going about how fat and "disgusting" Imakura was made me feel really sad and disturbed ... i was struggling through the first pages but nevertheless i completed the read .... i didn't really love this book i think its okay,The story was interesting ... and that's all there is to it.

The first part is good and differ. I'm excited to know what happens next.
But, regretful, main point of book change to the other --such as lust...

Yaoi novels are a mind trip. They're definitely yaoi, with ukes and semes and borderline to way over-the-line rape. But they're also interesting because you're let inside of the character's minds a whole lot more than with the comics, and these stock characters are fleshed out, their motives made more clear.

This one was ... hm. I liked that the uke didn't lose all of the weight, that was interesting. I expected the author to completely slim him down to a waif.

I thought this book was really cute. I was a bit disappointed at first with the two main characters. Their personalities were just irritating at first, but in the end I loved them both and it turned out to be a really good book. The art really left an impression on me for this book, not just the style but how the characters were shown/not shown (You'll have to read it to understand what I mean)

This is a yaoi novel that all yaoi novel fans should pick up.

Totally bizarre!
I think I liked the book better when it was from Imakura's POV as we see him trying to pull his life together. The first part on the desert island was... well...words fail me.
