Customer Review

on 24 May 2013
Having lived in and near Roppongi at the time this story is set it is fair to say the picture painted as a backdrop to the story is a very vivid and accurate one. Roppongi (the novel) is everything you could want wrapped up in 400pages. Roppongi the place has to be experienced to be believed you've been warned!

A compelling story that I was drawn to initially as it was set in my old stomping grounds of thrill filled Tokyo. Once my initial fascination ran it's course and I'd reminisced about many of the locations mentioned in the book the underlying story gripped me. A story covering a highly turbulent time for the main character with more ups and downs than any man deserves. While there are many aspects to the story that could be seen as tragic the overall journey is a positive one.

I can't really put any more detail in the review as it would spoil the story. It's safe to say however that while the book is a work of fiction it's resemblance to what Roppongi was like in the late 1990's is striking.

A well worthwhile read.
