Item Description...
Learning to read Japanese is a little like running a marathon: it is a long, drawn out process, and it can get a little boring along the way. What we learners of Japanese need is a little fun now and then, something that brings a smile to our faces. As luck would have it, this book does just that. This magic trick is accomplished by the book's nine curious stories. Taken from the weekly magazine "Shukan Asahi," these stories, while true to life, verge on the hard to believe, and that's what evokes the magic element of fun.

But that's not all. Each story is accompanied by a translation, faithfully done and easy to follow. Then, sentence by sentence, follows a short gloss of each word and phrase, a reverse derivation of each declined verb and adjective, detailed notes on vocabulary and grammar, and information and commentary on the cultural background. All of these aids can be accessed easily when needed.

"Reading Japanese with a Smile: Nine Stories from a Japanese Weekly Magazine for Intermediate Learners" represents the best of two worlds -- stories that are both fully annotated and enjoyable to read.

Eight of the nine stories in this book were first published under the title "Strange but True" in 1997.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent!  Dec 19, 2007
I just purchased this book and am already hooked on it. Not only does it give a translation of the text, but it goes beyond that by giving vocabulary, grammar and all the little details of how Japanese sentences work that you'd have to go through volumes of grammar books (as I have in the past) to understand. Not only are the stories interesting, but they are authentic articles taken from a Japanese "weekly" magazine (sometimes described as "tabloid" magazines). This volume presents nine of these stories, but I found that more of these were collected in Japan in several volumes called "Dekigotology." After reading through this book, I will go out and look for more.
Be brave  Oct 22, 2007
This is an excellent book worthy and rewarding of study by students at any level of Japanese, though the more you know the easier it is...surprise. The author has worked hard to achieve this result which eases and encourages comprehension for any student in an effective, thorough but light-hearted manner. Strongly recommended.
