I was about to say that I have no idea, but I realised that part of the reason why I'm in Japan right now is because I read Shusaku Endo's Silence, so I shall choose that.

Silence is a story concerning the kakure Christians of Japan, and was one of the stories that year which moved me deeply. Normally, it would just end like that, but I also went on my first trip to Japan later that year, and that made me want to study in Japan. The rest is history.

It was one of the two books I analysed for my EE as well, so yeah, I guess it's made a very big impact. (At least, in terms of a measurable impact)(less)

Yikes! I thought I wrote a post here but it turns out I haven't. But don't worry, there's still plenty of time to enter my first ever giveaway for paperback copies of The Nutcracker King and Beauty's Daughter!

The giveaway is until the 23rd of March so there's still plenty of time if you want to enter. And since you're probably following me on Goodreads (which is probably why you saw this), then... Read more of this blog post »

The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
"The Red Tent is (very) loosely based on the story of Dinah in Genesis, and it is a book that is very easy to read. Dinah's tale is one that deserves fleshing out; in the Bible it is an interesting though undeveloped and uncertain chronicle. The au..." Read more of this review »
