Ot Japanese as his name might indicateTorn between a chance at self discovery that he’s ready to seize and the prejudices of others that he can’t control Sugihara must decide who he wants to be and where he wants to go next Will Sakurai be able to confront her own bias and accompany him on his journey.. Not really a coming of age story and not what I would call YA the character voice of the narrator Sugihara is older than that The story explores themes of blood and family from the perspective of a Korean born and raised in Japan I found it interesting but did not care much for the vehicle the author uses to make his points Sugihara is intelligent but little than a thug or for the flippant half humorous narrative style The love interest is a Japanese girl with supposed street smarts but surprising naivete I m not sure their romance brings much clarity to the story Sugihara already knows or thinks he knows the answers to his life uestions In the end he figures that I m not Korean or Japanese I m a rootless vagabond is probably what fits best But it feels awfully empty Identity may not be blood or nationality as defined by a race of people but surely it s not rootless eitherThis was an First Reads selection in February

review GO author Kazuki Kaneshiro

Ave prepared him for the heartache he feels when he falls hopelessly in love with a Japanese girl named Sakurai Immersed in their shared love for classical music and foreign movies the two gradually grow closer and closerOne night after being hit by personal tragedy Sugihara reveals to Sakurai that he is n. I m not sure what I was expecting from this book as I received it through an First selection I m still not sure how I feel about itGO is a somewhat coming of age story that follows Sugihara a Korean Japanese national and explores the struggles and prejudice of growing up between these two cultures The prose can be truly beautiful at times though there are times in which it feels stilted The same can be said for the storyline which is initially uite compelling and uite effective in introducing readers to Sugihara s uniue upbringing and voice I was a bit confused at the point of some of the characters there is a significant loss towards the end of the novel for example which doesn t make as strong of an impact on the characters that it should Overall very MurakamiJohn Green though executed a little less effectively A short sometimes rewarding read but nothing I would strongly recommend
