The Sailor Who Fell...

by Garp10 on Oct 8, 2009

I didn't really understand the whole psychology behind the story; not the gang's motive, nor the author's desire to depict the sailor as someone "noble" or "above it all". It just didn't come through in the reading. Some of the language must have been lost in translation. Parts of the story were well writtin, and I could almost see what the author was trying to relate, but overall, it was just an O.K. read.


Not for everyone

This is one of the strangest books that I have yet read. Mishima has a great ability to make his readers cringe, and scenes in this book will make you do so. The sense of emotional detachment touted by the children is certainly difficult to handle, yet this book was thought provoking. A good book overall, but in no means for all audiences.

I was very disappointed in this book. I can not find anything that I can say positive other than it used a lot of words to fill a few pages.
