マイケル・エメリック氏は優れた編者だ。選ばれた六つの短編小説は本当にすばらしくて、もっと読みたくなる。現代の日本のフィクションへの入り口にうってつけだと言える。

しかし、アンチクライマックスが嫌いな人は注意が必要だ。六つ物語があるうち、半分ほどの結末は、ハッピーエンドやバッドエンドではない。また、モダンでもなくポストモダンでもない。つまりあまり「おち」がない。ある程度、それは、現代の文学の特徴だろう。読者はローラーコースターに乗り、坂を上り、目にうつる光景のすばらしさにわくわくする。でも、クライマックスで、今までの楽しさ以上になると期待したとき、「はい、終点です」という声を聞いてしまう。降りて、少し頭がボーっとする中、この経験は本当にすばらしいものかどうかちょっと疑問が残る。

2,730円で、安い本ではない。255ページあるが、本文はその何分の一かだ。他のページはエメリック氏の注釈や翻訳や前書きだ。すべて適切に書かれていて、そのおかげで、日本語学習者の私にも小説を読むことができた。加えて、エメリック氏のスタイルも面白い。「多和田葉子は多くの賞をもらった」というようなベタな文章は書かない。「釣り愛好家が好んで着るヴェストのポケットよりも賞を沢山もらった」とユニークに書かれている。

しかし、少し文句を言わせてもらうなら、

5つ星のうち 4.0 Great start into reading Japanese literature 2013/11/16
投稿者 D. Perez
形式:ペーパーバック
The book contains 6 short stories. The stories have different difficulty levels: the story by Banana Yoshimoto is very easy to understand, whereas the next one by Kitamura Kaoru was much harder to grasp. Therefore there is something for every Japanese learner in it.

The stories are written in Kanji and Kana, no romaji is given. The Kanjis have furigana when they first occur in the story, whereas later the reader is supposed to have memorized the spelling of the Kanjis.

The translation of each sentence is pretty straightforward. If more help is needed in the more complex

5つ星のうち 5.0 Helps you do just what the title says! 2008/7/25
投稿者 Zarxrax - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
I love this book! It presents you with 6 short stories (each one around 12 pages long or so, but the last one is only about 2 pages). On one page it presents the Japanese text, and on page opposite of it you will find a translation of the phrases. Towards the back of the book, you will find another 50 pages or so of additional notes, which explain things such as words or grammatical patterns and other such things. There is also a japanese-english dictionary containing the words that you find in the stories. I love this format, because everything you need is right here in the book, so you don't have to constantly be looking up phrases on your computer or electronic dictionary. You can just lay back, relax, and read! However, the format of having the notes in the back of the book make it a little annoying, since you have to keep flipping back and forth, but you should be alright if you use two bookmarks to keep your place.
The stories themselves are real Japanese, just as the title says. These aren't watered-down stories designed to be easy for beginners. I've only read the first story so far, and I found it extremely challenging. The translations and notes and everything really helped out a lot. Although it took me over an hour to read the first page, as I continued on, I found that my speed was increasing quite well. I've completed advanced classes in Japanese in college, and I could hardly understand any of the sentences in the first story. However, the notes are all so helpful, I feel like I learned enough from just one page of this book to make the price worth it. If something is difficult to explain in English, the author will sometimes provide you with additional sentences for the purpose of helping you understand how a certain phrase or grammar point is used. There is furigana over the kanji the first time a word appears. I really like this, since it forces you to learn the reading of the words when you encounter them again later in the stories. The included cd is also very helpful, since it lets you hear how to say everything naturally.

This book assumes you have about an intermediate (or higher) level of knowledge with Japanese. For someone who has only completed intermediate classes, you may find the book fairly slow to work through, but as long as you actually study and try to learn from the material, I don't think you will have a problem.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Excellent learning tool but only for hard-wrokers 2008/9/29
投稿者 Anatoli - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
The other reviewer have already praised the book enough and I agree wit their assessment. This is a must have book for Japanese learners.

Something that might discourage some buyers: the texts chosen are not simple at all, they are very challenging. The audio recording is natural but very fast, you need to work hard to be able to understand the text by listening. it's a big jump in difficulty from reading/listening to Genki, Japanese for everyone, Minna-no Nihongo and other popular textbooks, which was exactly what I was looking for.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The best Japanese reader I have seen 2008/10/29
投稿者 Zack Davisson - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
This is the Japanese reader I have been hoping for! I can hardly believe that such an excellent book has finally been made available after suffering through sub-par readers for so long. This book is just awesome, and if you are studying Japanese then you are going to want it as soon as possible.

Japanese has always suffered from a dearth of good readers. Some, like A Japanese Reader are so dense and academic as to put off all but the most dedicated student. Some, like Mangajin's Basic Japanese Through Comics, are fun to begin with but don't get you very far. The biggest problem has always been that middle ground, that 2-kyu level where you need some help getting over the hump from constructed text and into the real world.

I had the previous edition of Read Real Japanese, and this release is a vast improvement. The old version relied far to heavily on romaji, which anyone reading at this level should be long past. This new edition eliminates this problem, using only the kanji and hiragana character sets. All kanji are initially presented with furigana, but afterwards appear on their own so you have to work for it. The stories are presented with the right hand being the original text, then the left hand presenting translations on difficult passages. In the back, there are more detailed translation notes and a dictionary of all the words used. The system works excellently, and it is a good challenge to mentally create your own translation then flip to the back and see what the editor translated the passage as. A CD is included as well for pronunciation, and I have found it is helpful to put on the CD and read along to increase your speed.

The selection of authors is also enjoyable, with only the ubiquitous Yoshimoto Banana making a repeat appearance from the previous edition. There are horror stories, magical realism, "slice-of-life"...one of my favorites was a scary tale about a solitary boy late at night and a mysterious sandbox with something lurking underneath. They are graduated in level, with the earlier stories being simpler to read, and then slowly gaining in difficulty. The goal is to eventually wean you off of readers, and the editor gives several suggestions of follow-up stories on each level that you can seek out and try on your own.

I am really happy that "Read Real Japanese" was published, and I hope that more follow suit. There is a companion book, "Read Real Japanese Essays: Contemporary Writings by Popular Authors 1 free CD included", which is of the same high quality, and students of Japanese will be wanting that as well. Highly, highly recommended.

5つ星のうち 3.0 A interesting way to improve your Japanese reading proficiency 2010/8/26
投稿者 VikingMom - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック|Amazonで購入
I've only gone through the first story of this book, but it's really well put together. You get the feeling of really being able to read a Japanese short story with the kanji and the vertical right to left format. Furigana(small hiragana characters above the kanji) allow you to learn the proper way to say each kanji. It's only listed the first time you see the kanji, so you're forced to remember. This makes it really difficult if you don't take good, easily searchable notes. The glossary is in alphabetical order in the back of the book, so I broke it up by searching for the unknown words after each page. I know some books like this give you the new vocabulary right on the page, which is a little more convenient. Also, I would like to see a full translation... After going through the definitions and passage notes, I feel like I have a good idea of what the story is about, but I'm not 100% sure I got it all because of the way it's broken up.

This book really pushes you to take detailed and organized notes, which is great for learning, but not as easily readable as it claims to be. The CD with audio files is a great feature, but the voice actress is really fast, so if you don't have a computer program to slow them down a bit, I'd only recommend this for advanced Japanese learners.

5つ星のうち 5.0 a teacher's perspective 2008/12/14
投稿者 Jordan Smith - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
Previous reviews have done a thorough job in commenting on the structure of this book, and I'll add my voice to theirs in saying that this is a well-structured and highly stimulating collection of modern Japanese short stories that, with repeated readings and careful study, is capable of transforming the intermediate/advanced student of Japanese into a reader of real Japanese.

But I'd like to comment on the text from another angle--a teacher's perspective. I taught this book this quarter to 4th-year Japanese language students (university level) and had an excellent experience with it. It will be a great tool for teaching classes of mixed ability, where some readers will not need to rely on the notes and student-oriented translations, and others will need to rely heavily on them just to understand what's going on.

The stories are interesting, even haunting--perfect for sustaining interest through the multiple reads it will take to fully master the grammar and subtlety of the language.

Kawakami's "Kamisama" begins when the narrator is invited out for a walk and a picnic by a bear who has moved into her apartment building, and evokes a magical-realist/Totoro-esquely uncertain reality where we come to see the bear as even more "human" (in traditional terms) than most of the other humans that inhabit the story world. Otsuichi's "Mukashi yuuhi no kouen de" is a frank portrayal of a child's experience in reaching down deep into the sandbox at the local park to find out how deep it goes...and bumps up against a mystery... Ishii's "Nikuya Oumu" details events surrounding the eponymous "Parrot Meat Shop," dubbed so due to the owner's uncanny ability to imitate the farm animals slaughtered for meat; a rustic, down-to-earth tale narrated partially from a child's perspective, it somehow manages to incorporate a coming-of-age tale with disability issues, musings on innocent sexuality, and the spiritual relationship between the living and the dying. Yoshimoto's "Miira" tells of a young girl's bizarre and grotesque, yet somehow oddly romantic, encounter with a young student of archeology who (sort of) kidnaps her for a marathon of sex and mummy-viewing... And so on... These stories are fantastic (I haven't spoiled any endings, and there is much more to them than these sketches reveal).

Highly recommended for serious students, lovers of literature, those on the prowl for good Japanese fiction, and teachers in need of something to breathe life into advanced Japanese courses.
