My Thoughts on Big In Japan by Griffith
If you were overweight, ignored at work, stuck in a little cubicle and suffering through the Texas heat, would you think to move to Japan and become a professional Sumo wrestler?
Neither did Buck Cooper, but, luckily, things do not always go as planned.
After a particularly disappointing day at work, Buck is asked to accompany his parents on a trip to Japan where, for the first time in his life, he stood out in a good way for being six feet six inches tall and very overweight. His chance to enter this new life comes unexpectedly when a phone call from home reminds him that he does not have much to return to and a contract right within reach of him offers Buck a new chance in a new life. Perhaps an exciting, fun life.
Unfortunatey, the sport only looks glamorous on the outside. Leaving his parents behind, Buck must endure daily physical, mental and even psychological punishment in order to work his way up through the sport and have a chance the win the esteem as well as the hand of the girl he loves.
All of the action in this book continues to strongly build right up to the final match and the perfect, happy ending.The author collects up all loose ends, forming them into a perfect bow and making sure that the ending is satisfying to the reader on every level.
This book will be available July 28th in hardback and paperback. Enjoy!
