This is definitely the best mystery I have read in a long time. It's actually a lot more than a mystery, as it reveals a lot about Japanese culture. Not only is the book well-plotted and very well written, it is also very absorbing. Once I started reading, I just couldn't put it down. Miyabe manages to take the mystery to the next level by offering great insight into Japanese life, through a very well-crafted cast of characters. This is an excellent read, recommended both to mystery lovers and those interested in the Japanese culture.

Amazon.com Review:
Recovering from a leg injury, a 43-year-old Tokyo police inspector named Shunsuke Honma realizes how out of touch he has become when a relative asks him to make some private inquiries into the disappearance of his fiancée. While he wasn't paying attention, it seems that everyone in the country but Honma has been caught up in a consumer feeding frenzy--going into heavy debt and declaring bankruptcy at a snowballing rate. This engrossing story of the search for happiness through shopping marks the first appearance in English of one of Japan's leading writers.

From Publishers Weekly:
The horror in this beautifully fashioned tale of stolen identity lies not in the cold-blooded crimes but in the motive? A desperate hunger for consumer goods. Shunsuke Honma, a widowed 43-year-old Tokyo police inspector with a 10-year-old son, is on disability leave. The boring cycle of idleness punctuated by painful physical therapy sessions comes to a halt when a nephew asks for Honma's help in finding his missing fiancee, whom he knows as Shoko Sekine. As Honma's search intensifies, he realizes the fiancee had actually assumed Sekine's identity and possibly killed her. For the American reader, the jewel in this enormously compelling novel is the portrait of working- and middle-class Japanese getting caught in a cycle of astronomical personal debt in order to enjoy the good life. Also eye-opening is Japan's elaborate registry system for keeping track of its citizenry. In order to become Shoko Sekine, the impostor had to perpetrate an ingeniously elaborate series of hoaxes and lies. Honma is tenacious, methodical, an attentive listener with a retentive memory and the ability to connect disparate bits of information. The trail takes him back through the real Sekine's history and into the life of the other woman, whose family ran afoul of vicious loan sharks. Miyabe drives her complex plot with spare prose, combining expert pacing and psychological nuance to ultimately haunting effect. (Feb.) "All She Was worth" was named Best Novel of the year and Best Mystery for 1992 in Japan.

Well, this book was really a surprise, I enjoyed it immensely!
Japanese literature never ceases to amaze me!
It is quite terrifying what credit cards and debts can lead a person to do. I don't want to spoil it for you, but the whole concept is quite terrifying...
Very well written (and translated into English), though I must confess sometimes Japanese names got me a bit confused.
I really liked the boy, Makoto, and his relationship with this father and other adults. This makes a very interesting sub-plot.
Thanks for sharing, Chich; this will be soon on its way to CanPou; I already have her address.

This is the kind of book I wouldn't normally read, but found I enjoyed. Occasionally I like to renew my connection with Japan (I used to live there). The last Japanese film I saw also featured body parts - is this a trend I wonder?! I finished it whilst on holiday. Had I been writing it I don't think I'd have finished it quite at the point that this author did, but until then, I found it an interesting yarn.

31/12/10 Just adding that in the Japan that I knew I don't think anyone had credit cards. They didn't even have debit cards. My colleagues were all paid in cash at the end of each month. To withdraw money, I needed to insert my bank book into my bank's machine. And I'm not talking about an era back in the dark ages either!

I can finally say I've finished this book. Now, I'm not that good in expressing my thoughts, but I did like the book a lot. I've learned a lot about Japanese culture (what a lot of differences between Japan and 'the West'.) The technical aspect in the book didn't bother me at all, it was part of the story. It really made you understand the book. It's in a written in a very cool, rational way and that is also the way I read the book. I guess, that's part of the Japanese culture, or rather their take of life. I've appreciated it.
I've already received Gnoe's adress, so the book will be on it's way either tomorrow or Monday.

Received the book last night and will be starting it after I've finished my current read by Kenzaburo Oë. I'm pretty curious about this book by Miyuki Miyabe!

*** APOLOGIES! ***
I finished reading All She Was Worth pretty quick after I'd received it and was supposed to deliver it to iiwi the week before last... but fell ill. I'm pretty much housebound but will try to get the book on its way again a.s.a.p.! Just to let you know I haven't forgotten ;) 


Journal Entry 25 by Gnoe at Utrecht, Utrecht Netherlands on Monday, June 20, 2011

7 out of 10

My reading comfort zone is literary fiction. But every once in a while I'm in the mood for some suspense. All She Was Worth met my needs perfectly and dropped into the mailbox at exactly the right time!

It's a real page turner and I would love to read more about Inspector Honma; an imperfect but likeable human being to whom I could really relate. Only the background on the credit-based economy & money bubble crash made me zone out every once in a while. Miyuki Miyabe does a good job explaining but I just wasn’t that interested.

I'm using more words to say the same thing on my blog Graasland. ;)

A big THANK YOU to chic for giving me the opportunity to read this and discover a new author! PS take a good look at the pic ;)

My heart, as a former economy student, rejoyced (can a heart do that? Well anyway :) ) when reading this book. I was allready taken by The thousand autums of Jacob de Zoet, what in it's essence is a book about an accountant, and this is a book about the credit system. I read the book on the part of the world furthest away of any bankingcentre, the high plane of Norway, in between several lakes (see picture), but still, I was happy having my mastercard, otherwise I couldn't pay anything at all. Having said that I still am not comfortable paying with credit-card. We use debit cards normally, and it feels strange to mastercard (Yes, I have used this as a verb).
The book let you see how womanunfriendly the Japanese society (still?) is. Women are to be submissive, not an individual in the society, only an own personality in a family with a man and children.

I will contact mysticcat.

Definitely an intense little book. I read it really fast, when I had time as I'm fascinated with these kind of mystery stories and it was well enough written. Altough sometimes it just seemed like the author's personal rant about the horrible effects of consumer society put into different narratives... But all is forgiven, since I enjoyed most of the characters and had no problems with the ending.

I sent the book on to the next in line!
Happy reading!

8 out of 10

When I (finally) finished this book today, I felt a bit guilty. I thought that I had had it for ages.... Looking down the journal entries, I saw that it has been here 'only' a bit over a month. So... things are not that bad.

Review:
I liked this book. Not because I think it was such a great thriller, but because of other things.
First of all I loved the insight in the Japanese society. How people live, how things are organised. That world is so different from mine (and therefor so intriguing), that any description of more or less normal Japanese living is welcome.
Secondly, I liked the way the book is written. Detective is more the descripton I'd give to the contents of this book, not thriller. It is more about solving a puzzle, why and how a young woman disappears, than about the actual deed(s) of disappearing, murder (?), deceipt etc.
What I did not like is that the end does not bring clarity. When a woman is found, the story ends. What I had hoped for (and more or less expected from the way the book was written), is that the object of the search would get some speaking time also. At least to find out why, apart from the reasons already mentioned in the book, that are valid in themselves, but these are reasons outside the person.
To act the way she did, there also has to be something inside her, that allowed her to act the way she did. And that's the part I missed at the end.

One other remark that I wanted to make: I did not really understand the title. Usually there's a tie to the contents of the book, but here I could not rally grab it. Maybe it is the translation (sometimes translated titles are not so good), or maybe I am looking in the wrong direction. It is just that I can't connect the (my) meaning of the title to the contents of the book.

This is not my first foray into the world of Japanese literature (translated, not read in Japanese!) but it is probably the book i've found least engaging so far which is a shame as I was looking forward to it. It didn't really hold my attention and I know that a lot of detail had to be given to explain the background to identity theft and debt but it just bogged down the pace of the story for me. Thanks for letting me participate in this book ray all the same though!

The book was okay, but for the most part it wasn't too gripping, as far as mysteries go. I felt that some conclusions just came to quickly, without much explanation as to what prompted them. Also, some of the language just didn't say "Japanese" to me, it said "American", which took away from the book. I have a sneaking suspicion that this book probably feels a lot different when read in original, but alas, I don't speak Japanese! ;)

I did enjoy it though, and it was nice to get a glimpse into Japanese customs and society, which do differ from ours quite a bit at times, but are still so similar when it comes to modern consumerism. I wouldn't mind reading more from this author.

I've contacted the next in line for their address.
