Recommended for: only sort of
Read in April, 2009

I started off liking this book, and then wasn't too crazy about it by the end. The idea is interesting - this Japanese man, infatuated with Audrey Hepburn (representing America, I guess), only goes out with American women, many of whom are crazy. There is a second story about his parents that unfolds, and I think is a little unbelievable, and I'm not sure how it really relates to the Audrey Hepburn theme. There are some cross-cultural misunderstandings, but I don't know - this book is written by a white guy (I am not sure if he is American or British), so it's a stretch for me to believe that he can completely get into the mind of a Japanese man. I had this same problem with Memories of a Geisha.
