Shelves: revisited-2014
Felt more like an exercise in politics and war than a novel in which you are meant to get to know the characters. The dialogue was sterile I don't know if this was meant to be a reflection of the Japanese culture. Usually I enjoy books about Japan and it's culture but it was too stale for me.
