    Read Sayonara Bar E–pub [Sayonara Bar] By Susan Barker The parts of this novel that are truly excellent lie in the poetic uality of Barker's writing There are points in this book where the prose really lifts the story off the pages and creates a magical surreal sensory experience The problem is that the story itself needs the prose to carry it along and it struggles out of the gate Even towards the end when the pace of the action picks up and the climaxes approach it seems to run out of stea

Read Sayonara Bar Sayonara Bar Free download ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Susan Barker Ð 2 Characters Ance with the Yakuza  Watanabe a somewhat diffident cook who works at the Sayonara Bar has also taken an interest in Mary and supposedly he can see into a fourth dimension a manga infused dimension which allows to see danger before it happens  And then. This was a stunning first novel by Barker Mary is a gaijin hostess in a bar in Osaka and is in love with Yuji a budding Yakuza mobster Watanabe is a short order cook in the hostess bar who has a thing for Mary but also believes he has transcended our mortal coil Mr Sato is mourning his dead wide and becomes entangled with one of the hostessesThe three stories are interlinked cleverly and you actually give a damn about them despite their flaws and they are flawed The strands weave and separate nicely with a good flow and the method of a chapter per character works well especially when keeping you on tenterhooks for the next instalment For a debut this was certainly an ambitious book but Barker has pulled it off well The other thing I liked is that she avoided using Tokyo as the background to her story an all too easy location to be used If you want something a little different read this It is puzzling enticing strange and with enough uestions to leave it lingering with you long after you have finished it but enough answers to give a satisfying conclusion to the book

Read Sayonara Bar Sayonara Bar Free download ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Susan Barker Ð 2 Characters There is Mr Sato who has become a regular at Sayonara Bar as he tries to escape his wife's ghost  When Yuji crosses the Yakuza it has dire conseuences for them all and their lives become irrevocably intertwined in this wonderfully imagined debut novel. A well written but ultimately frustrating novel It follows the lives of three people in Osaka Japan Mary an English graduate working at a hostess bar in love with a young yakuza gang member Mr Sato a middle aged workaholic salaryman recovering from the death of his wife and Watanabe an autistic short order cook who believes he has the power of omniscience at a microscopic level or IS it just a belief Each chapter rotates to their different points of view Mary s is a familiar western first person narrative Watanabe s is a rapid fire stream of consciousness information overload and Sato s is deliberate measured and at times poetic which fits that he is recounting his in a mental letter to his dead wife The author juggles all three narratives with aplomb Sato s story specifically struck me as fascinating with some brilliant turns of phrase that I wanted to underline While Watanabe s and Mary s story lines intertwine sato s is separate apart from 3 chance meetings with Mary where they basically say hello that s allThen it all kind of falls apart The rich character development of the first half is shunted away as each character becomes agitated and purely reactive to their individual storylines This all culminates in an ending that is only barely explained without the knowledge of any motivations or reasoning The biggest mystery in the book is never answered A secondary mystery and the culmination of Sato s plotline is lazily hand waved as Oh character name was just crazy Also maybe ghostsIt s uite sad because I enjoyed the first half so much and the author has such a wonderful grasp of Japanese culture Oh well
