Rated: High. There are about two dozen uses of strong language, the numbers of which are more concentrated later in the book. Sexual content is moderate; there are sexual scenes here and there that are generally not very long but are moderately detailed. Adultery occurs; “hostessing” and drug use are alluded to.

What does Soo Nee mean?
They say “soo nee” which is girl talk for “yes” instead of “so da ne” or “so ka” (Tokyo) or “se ya na” (Osaka). In the few Japanese sentences, the verbs are conjugated incorrectly. Those are just a few example, but almost all the Japanese is similarly wrong.
