This is a very good book. Well written and entertaining. It has happy, and sad moments, with some hilarious nostalgia thrown in. This is about the time period before, throughout, and after WWII. Written from a young Japanese’s point of view, I gained a real education in Japanese culture. I loved the book. It was hard to put down and to not continue reading straight through; it had me hooked.
