    A reviewer

    Billy Chaka is a reporter for a best seller Asian magazine that was made for teens. In the Magazine, Billy is a Karate fighting beast who is not only big and beastly but he is known to kick some but in karate. This book was really bad in the beginning and I thought I wasn¿t going to like it but then it seemed to be okay and I finished it and loved it. Billy, in the comic magazine, is in Tokyo trying to join a martial arts championship to meet up with one of his best friends, Sato Migusho. Sato is a renowned director of cult film classics known in Sex Up the Hotrod, Baby! Migusho never shows up to the karate classes, but lucky for Billy his dream girl comes into a dive bar with the frightening Yakuza mobsters. Once Billy discovers that Sato is dead, he lives his dreams by joining to girls in swanky clubs, and is offered a golf club membership at a club he went to by a top secret religious order. He then meets a dog trained Samurai, and learns many ways to fight and attack unwanted bull dogs. Billy steals motorcycles and dangerously pursuit¿s speed limits on Tokyo streets. He packed so many fists flying that he made Jacky Chan cry. Billy is a karate fighting champion and no one can get in his way. He is now one of the best crime fighting heroes in the Tokyo. This is a great book, but it could get stupid at times and that¿s what makes it funny.

    Surprising!

    This book came reccommended to me and to be honest I didn't think I would like it. I was wrong. It is absolutely one of the cleverest books I've read. Yes, the basic plot is cheesey and it does have a kind of noir feel to it but that is what makes it great! I laughed out loud several times and couldn't wait to get to the end. Since I have read two of his three other books.

    FUNNY FUNNY

    when i first read this i thought that isaac adamson's wrting style was not that great and any asian wanna-be geek could write a book like this but this book was really good. There are a lot of funny parts in it and i could never put the book down. after i finished the book i quickly found the sequel and bought it...its just that good...anyways, yeah the book is really good and so is the sequel. Its funny, stupid, and...funny. and while your reading think about this, did adamson create billy chaka to be what he has never been? cool question huh?

    A FUN READ

    Suckerpunch is a crazy book. It plays out like a kung-fu dective story. If you want to have fun and kick back just pickup this book.
