I loved this book! Besides simply being in love with Japanese culture, I read this book with great enjoyment. It's point is very intricately submerged into 19th century's Japan, great kingdom on it's very unknown way to the future. And this point concerns all human beings, for it treats the never paling theme of life, it's purpose, and death.
I can not decide which part of this saga is better: I, the chronological epic tale with it's emphasis on samurais, or II, the almost lyrically inspired stories about the past and the future of our main characters in it's amazing twisted whirlwind.
This is a true literature gem!
