really liked it
Read in October, 2006

I picked this book up on a whim. Despite it's good reputation I was expecting something of a run-of-the-mill supermarket paperback. I was happy to be wrong.

This book happens to combine several of my favorite things: good writing, historical fiction, Japanese history, World War II, and hot Asian women. I was sucked in within the first five pages, and only stopped reading to go to work. Looking back, there was probably no way I couldn't help liking this book at least a little.

Epic love story isn't exactly the right phrase, but it's the first one that comes to mind.

I thought it was a pretty damned good read.
