it was amazing
Read in December, 2010

I read this 30 years ago and it quickly became one of my favorite books. Upon re-reading I'm not loving it as much, (the violence is so hard and the writing isn't terrific) but I still find the anthropological theme, political intrigue and love story very engaging.

Best quote:(aproximately) after Markiko commits suicide she writes the Ajinsan a note that says that her christian self hopes she will find him in heaven despite their differences. Her Japanese self hopes that she will be reincarnated as "whatever I can be to make your future life better". How lovely.
