This review is from: A Pale View of Hills (Kindle Edition)
The meaning and subtlety of this novel was so deep that it rather passed me by! Which is a shame, as it paints a fascinating picture of life and culture in post-war Japan and, whilst the sadness and sense of loss is palpable, it is rather lost in the complexity of the allegory. The overall effect is one of frustration.
