One of the choices I'm making this year are to not waste my life on a) books I know I'll hate or b) books that feel like chores to finish. 76 pages into this, all I knew about the story/Takeshi was how he objectified women and how women made his body parts react.

As others have mentioned, this seems like it may be one of those situations wherein the screen adaptation is better than the novel.

Quite disappointing, considering I was expecting to love the book as much as the Netflix series!

Bright side, I now have Christmas for one person down. I feel like this novel would be better relatable if another man were reading it because...I mean...(view spoiler).
