    Gone Fishin’ ePUB º Paperback gone ebok, fishin’ pdf, Gone Fishin’ KindleReuired reading before stepping into intermediate Japanese and after having a bit of experience with native Japanese texts not just your textbook's texts It will help clarify many grammar points that are muddled in textbooks and grammar books wa and ga and misunderstood passive voice are the main focus here then small essays on smaller grammar points like tsumori tame hodo Johnny Carson and I don't think it will do you any good in the beginner level other than laughing out loud with Rubin sensei's jokesI appreciated that most of the examples are chosen from literature Murakami Haruki Dazai Osamu Kawabata Yasunari Misima Yukio and and I'll certainly need to read the book a couple timesPS And I'm not even going to whine about the romaji only choice

    Gone Fishin’ ePUB º Paperback gone ebok, fishin’ pdf, Gone Fishin’ KindleJay Rubin is the biographer and main English translator of the works of Haruki Murakami He also seems to relish in mocking academia despite being an academic himself Perhaps it's just linguistics he likes to jeer which does make sense I vaguely remember the silly turf wars within a university Anyway despite his rebellious streak What the Textbooks Don't Tell You was probably just a what THEY don't want you to know marketing tack on from the publisher It does reinforce that this is a supplementary text Rubin seems to have been written it out of being weary of correcting his Japanese Literature students' common misunderstandings or bad practicesJust like your English teacher in high school Rubin is furious about the use of passive voice He rails against the temptation to translate Japanese's subjectless sentences into the English passive voice That seems to be the whole goal of the first 74 pages the first half the book he

    Gone Fishin’ ePUB º Paperback gone ebok, fishin’ pdf, Gone Fishin’ KindleI went into it expecting a good read and I wasn't disappointed Jay Rubin's love of and enthusiasm for the Japanese language clearly comes across and transfers to the reader by the way he explains things The book is fairly small and only 120 entertaining pages short enough to be a weekend read in just one session even and not many grammar books can be enjoyed cover to cover like that Looking at the table of contents one might be lead to believe that this is a book for beginners and in fact the clear and deceptively simple explanations make it seem even so That's not to say that beginners won't understand or appreciate it but if you're reading this as a beginner re read it when you reach intermediate level You'll go なるほど all over again A few of the items might already be fairly well understood by intermediate students just a few though I have one main annoyance with the book however the prevalence of romaji without any kanji and kana This book is clearly meant for in

    Gone Fishin’ ePUB º Paperback gone ebok, fishin’ pdf, Gone Fishin’ KindleThis book is a collection of essays that tries to demystify aspects language learners often have trouble with It's aimed at beginners though often dips into intermediate territory If you've been studying for a few years now you still might get something out of it such as the concept of the zero pronoun explained in a way you haven't conside

    Gone Fishin’ ePUB º Paperback gone ebok, fishin’ pdf, Gone Fishin’ KindleI discovered Jay Rubin as one of Murakami Haruki's translators and had been meaning to pick up this for some time I'm glad I finally did It's not exactly a text book not exactly a humourous discussion of the Japanese language but something in betweenEssentially split into two halves the first is a long and fairly involved discussion of the differences between 'wa' and 'ga' and Rubin's idea of a 'the invisible pronoun' in Japanese grammar The latter half is a collection of much shorter essays touching on a lot of

    Gone Fishin’ ePUB º Paperback gone ebok, fishin’ pdf, Gone Fishin’ KindleHis passion for the language really comes through but it's a little too long winded for someone like me I probably wouldn't have dedicated 18 pages to distinguish wa from ga for exampleI'm an impatient learner who just wants to cut to the chase and figure out what potential pitfalls I need to look out for But as I flipped through the pages hoping for him to illuminate me on something I've not already identified as a problem area I was disappointed almost every step of the way The aha moments were few and far between So that was uite disappointing With that said it's a light read and he can be pretty funny I had a
