*Free ☠ Homecoming ⇧ Ebook or Kindle ePUB free

Rich and vivid narratives All the senses we have are used to depict a dead, longing, and desperate man who comes after war and placed between the past and the future This book doesn t present you much complexity in plot instead i read it as an insight, individual reflection towards war and self compulsion You might feel like watching a drenched documentary film There are some western references told in neutral and subtly tone which make this story un Japanese in so very Japanese way. I loved the style of the book all the way through, as well as the story line and the characters I only gave it 4 stars because for me the ending was a bit disappointing and somehow flat. A beautiful and deep portrayal of Japanese culture And it was not the sound of water in itself that they liked, it was water as it sounded in nature, or as close to it as possible, that Japanese wanted to hear, and they built their houses accordingly Their lives were bound in the living, and they were trained to find pleasure in meager little things.
