I cant express how much I enjoyed this novel. I'm one of those people who're into Japan and exploring Buddhism and it's pilgrimages and reading great writing. This satisfies all of these appetites. It has alot of wisdom that is put across very simply and easily; the author does a great job of making one really feel for the offenders, the bullying they suffered and the tragic reasons that brought them to the reform school. Definitely a book I'll remember for a long time and look forward to rereading regularly.
