Earlier this year I already reviewed Read Real Japanese Essays. The Fiction version has the same set-up as that book, so I won’t get into that again (check the Essays review for that). The structure of the book just works, and it’s awesome for students of Japanese, the end.
I am slightly behind with the TBR Pile Challenge but I finished book number four last night and so it’s time for another two mini reviews! This means I have now finished four out of twelve books for this year, and I fully intend to continue with this challenge.
Among Japanese learning material aimed at foreigners, this book is definitely one of the better ones. The book contains eight essays by (relatively) popular authors, such as Haruki Murakami, Banana Yoshimoto and Yoko Ogawa.
