Roppongi - Reviews/Awards
As of April 2014, Roppongi has around 86 official Amazon reviews internationally.
71 are 5-Star Reviews
This means that more than 2 years after publication, Roppongi is averaging 4.8 Stars!
To be clear, there are very few books on Amazon, which, once having collected over 50 reviews, maintain greater than even a 4-Star average, let alone average anywhere near 4.8 Stars. Roppongi, so far, is breathing very rarefied air indeed!
Roppongi also won an honourable mention (General Fiction) in the 2012 Hollywood Book Festival Awards.
I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to all those Roppongi readers who have already submitted their Amazon review, and I would additionally encourage all those who have not yet posted a review, to please do so as soon as possible. Adding your review is one very significant way you can help promote a book you believe in!
Apart from the above, what have the critics had to say so far?
"Roppongi, Tokyo. In a shadowy but glamorous world designed for maximum hedonism, things and people are not always what they seem. 'Roppongi' may yet prove to be a cult adventure-travel novel on a par with Alex Garland's 'The Beach' or Gregory David Roberts's 'Shantaram."
