    1. Reminded me of Saiichi Maruya's Grass For My Pillow, how honest the character is about the fanaticism sweeping the nation and the war.

    2. I liked the rhythm of this book - kind of slow and easy to follow.Some parts I didn't really understand, like Shiomi describing several military procedures, which after a while did bother me. What stood out for me were little scenes, Shiomi's roommates waiting silently in their room for news on his operation, the description of the whole sanatory buildingI don't think I captured all of Shiomi's motives and reasons for his actions. Maybe I should read the novel once again some time.If you read it [...]

    3. Unapologetically sentimental and highly indebted to Western literature, Fukunaga's achingly melancholic novel of lost love and lost youth is nevertheless deeply moving. His often flowery prose and fixation on Christianity almost lost me, but his poetic writing eventually proved seductive, and I gave myself over to his story and was able to become lost in it, regardless of how painful it often was. And it was nice to be able to do that.

    4. I started the book loving the heck out of the first chapter; the characters were very dynamic, the setting compelling, the mysterious Shiomi-san all spooky and humbly above everyone else. But when the book traveled back to Shiomi's past via the notebooks, I began to lose interest. I think the "memoirs" were to depict the colors and vibrancy of youth and how Shiomi became the way he is and etc but they didn't really appeal to me. Young Shiomi just wasn't an interesting enough character, and there [...]

    5. I enjoyed this book, it reminded me a lot of Kokoro. Some of the Christianity stuff felt a bit forced but everything else was really good. The scene on the volcano was particularly memorable.

    6. Find my Book Review on: theroyalpolarbearreads.wordprFlower of Grass by Takehiko Fukunaga is a classic Japanese story that I wouldn’t thought I’ll get hook. I just give it a try and before I knew it, I was already at the end of it. It was a story of romance and finding yourself. A story who will hurt you deeply and indirectly and unknowingly. Flower of Grass is deep and wide journey of someone’s life trying to uncover the realizations of his decisions. What will you do when you couldn’t [...]

    7. Я во что-то верю. Если рассматривать страсть как крещение огнем, то вода вымыла из меня все прошлое. Ты не позвал меня, так как не было у меня имени. Крещенный Риу-чан обхитрил механику суицида, а мне даже не прийдется идти на хитрости.День за днем бежит, хлопая в ладоши, ночь с [...]

    8. Written 1954 post war Japan story of love, idealism portrait of a young man very bright, very sad in a sanatorium for life threatening illness who is still very much alive.It is interesting to read something written in post war Japan when they were still in the mind set of a beaten country.
