    Book Review on Snakes and Earrings by Hitoma Kanehara. Snakes and Earrings is a novel authored by Hitoma Kanehara. It explores the skepticism of youth, especially the Asian, Japan to be specific. It depicts the lives of Japanese youths that experience the “other life” or the underground culture that negates religious and moral principles. Snakes and Earrings is a short novella, and an odd mix of the sedate and simple and the brutal. Lui is a remarkably self-absorbed character, taking the world entirely on her own terms, showing almost no curiosity about anything.
