I'm struggling. I've read several of his other books & loved them, but this is a slog. There is so much of interest in the setting but the writing is so disjointed, on nearly every page he interweaves someone's train of thoughts with actions, painful half-sentence by half-sentence - it may be clever but it's not enjoyable to read.

Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob ich das Buch bis zum Ende durchhalte. Viele loben es, aber ich finde es bisher nur langweilig.

I'm not sure where I left off on this book for it was kind of a slog to read and I had to return it to the library. I know I was about 3/4 of the way into it. The historical aspect of it is interesting, but the story is rather cliched and melodramatic. I've never liked anything Michell has written yet.

Доста рядко ми се случва една книга да почне да ми става леко интересна чак след 350-та страница.

Този дребен лицемерен продажник Shuzai( не знам как е писан на български, сигурно Шузай), много ми падна в очите... Абсолютна невестулка.

От една страна ме е яд на Орито, че не си продължи по пътя, от друга, се възхищавам на благородството ѝ...

Тоя Еномото е голям психар, барабар с цялата си свита.

А английският на моменти е умопомрачителен, като например ето това по-долу :)

- Ами - с прямота, вдъхновена от сакето, любопитства Якоб - любовта?
- Ние казваме, когато съпругът обича жена си, майка му губи най-добрия си слуга.
- Каква безрадостна поговорка! В сърцата си не копнеете ли за любов?
- Да, господин Де Зут говори истината: любовта е свързана със сърцето, а бракът е свързан с главата...с ранга...с работата...родословието.

Уморих се от толкова много имена, честно. Още се опитвам да хвана нишката кой, кой е :)

The cat looks at her and meows, "feed me, for I am beautiful".

Most accurate description of cats in a book yet.

Listening on audiobook and am happy to be listening, not reading.
The narrator is pronouncing the dutch names for me (I'd have no idea). I'm enjoying the descriptions of Japan, the Japanese accents and the often subtle humour.
So far, the book is pleasant enough in the background, but I don't think I would have stuck with the written word in the same way. Early days yet though.

Me costó mucho terminar de leerlo... no es mala la historia, al contrario... pero tiene mucho detalle de la vida en deshima.

It's taking me a really long time to get into the story. Mitchell has taken his sweet time in getting the plot going. I am being patient because I love his writing, but this is not one of my favorite books of his. :(

I abandoned this book, which I hate doing. Too dense & I just couldn't get hooked. I'll definitely try again someday though.
