Cheryl I think that the problem with enjoying this book was a cultural disconnect. I believe that if I had been able to read it in Japanese, it would have been more impressive; also, and more importantly, the lack of understanding about Japanese tea ceremonies and the symbolism around it I am certain hampered my understanding of the book.
