Isaac Adamson

Has anyone read one of Isaac Adamson’s novels? He has a new one out, called DREAMING PACHINKO (after TOKYO SUCKERPUNCH and HOKKAIDO POPSICLE), which I’m thinking of ordering. I’ve read at least two reviews of his books in TIME ASIA (the most recent one appearing a few weeks ago), and they were both positive, describing the books as lots of fun. I would be curious to get some other opinions though.

I’m also thinking of ordering a box set of the first four Harry Potter books. They’ve got a set at Amazon Japan for only 2400 yen, which is pretty cheap. On top of the trip to Canada, I might also be heading out on a small weekend trip very soon (thanks to Yuko’s mom), and I want some light reading for that.
