1969, what a fascinating year that was in history, and yet Ken's outlook on it was nothing more than amusing. The protagonists rambling goes on for pages as he allows you to get inside of his head, but I found nothing that really inspired me. I chuckled now and again, but for the most part, I found his thoughts tiring and quite immature to tell you the truth - for someone trying to rebel and start a revolution at school (to impress a girl) that is.
I was actually more interested in the development of his friend Adama. Now that's a character that I found poignant, with interesting thoughts and ideas. His progression in the book from the popular, good looking, smart student to the good looking, troubled, rebellious outcast was fascinating. I would've liked to learn more about him and to have had him play a much more prominent part in the book.
Alas, we get stuck with Ken, a self-pitying troublemaker. A typical teenager, with typical teen woes. I've read that this was a Japanese take on Catcher in the Rye, and I have to say that this was nothing like it. A failed attempt if anything.
An amusing read about a teenager and his superficial problems. Read it, if that's the sort of thing you're looking for.
