An immature, heavily indepted bodyguard and a spinster handmaiden are steered towards the happy stability of married life. We knew that Genji’s vision of the first Diet must either return by epilogue or sequel unless the pace quickens from Shouru’s horse to his visions of Tokyo commuters. I enjoyed this the most.

The Best Books of He is, no doubt, my favorite character.

Japan is on the brink of major shift in policy, not yet strong enough to respond to the foreigners provocations and held back by a medieval social system that has remained unchanged since the Battle of Sekigawara – often mentioned in the text as the previous major turning point in dfl history of the nation.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Cloud of Sparrows reads like a cross between an action film, a western, and a cheesy melodrama. There are multiple plots ranging from the questionable loyalty of Genji’s advisors, the bloody past of one of the missionaries, and the relationship between Matsuokz and his geisha.

Lady Heiko- the branded “lady of mystery” from Japan. I was, however, disappointed by the remaining loose ends at the conclusion of the book. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

He’ll romanticize the samurai lifestyle, then suddenly mock it, and then he exposes it for the terrible thing it was- a class system that allowed for the worst kinds of atrocities samura befall the peasant and working class.


It wasn’t just about fighting and getting revenge by clans of samurais, but also about how Edo responded and reacted to the forced opening of the country to the world.

For some characters, their adventures lead to increased self —knowledge and increasingly, tolerance.

The senseless violence and insufferable arrogance of the samurai is often juxtaposed with his intense passion, loyalty, depth of feeling, and often ridiculous sentimentality. Saya suka buku ini. In addition to writing novels, Matsuoka also worked on tkashi script hoor the film Pale Blood.
