Review Butterflys Shadow

Nagasaki années Cho Cho aans et se retrouve orpheline Pour subvenir à ses besoins son oncle décide de vendre les charmes de la jeune fill. Not really what I had expected The book is said to cover the development of a child until it s adolescence Well it didn t really do that The first half was about its parents of which the first part in Japan was interesting to read but the rest could have been skipped easily It described the all day life of the family and the depression in America like a history book that a novel involving character development The second half actually was about the boy itself of which I had no clue who he was personality wise This didn t improve a lot throughout the story There was a promising past which didn t last The ending seemed too engineered to be plausible I was touched one time though To conclude it was really clear what the author wanted to establish bit it didn t work out for me at all That doesn t mean I disliked it altogether There were nice chapters here and there but I just feel like half of what should have been said missed and now the book is finished but there should have been IDK xD

I really appreciated reading this book The way the writer describes the Japanese culture retained longer and kind of pushed me into research The words from the book The tradition remains when everything else falls away Looking into Tradition word I found The Tradition is the set of beliefs of a people which is followed conservatively with respect through generations Curious as european we may not really have much consideration for this word and since kindess many times is missinterpretated as weakness lack of attitude and lack of a strong voice that screams out what we are Meanwhile to the japanese culture been louder is exactly where its weakness lies However it is when the difficulty times approach that the strenght of one country and their traditions are revealed and make it propereI found the novel enlightining for the fact that again no matter how hard life can be one country can change its one destiny and redirect their forces to a new beginnig After Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombarded japan had no choice but re build its own country moving from poverty and under american domain to a modern a proper worldButterfly s Shadow is a modern way to continue Puccini s work Madame Butterfly A Japanese tragedy with many parallels throughout the book however it shows contemporary issues in which we may see ourself in the same skin Joe was born in Japan moving to America very young he did not follow the japanse traditions but also was not accepted by the american culture A constant dilema since he seems not fitting in any of both cultues

On père Mais uand la fiancée de Pinkerton l'apprend elle décide de ramener l'enfant aux États unis en lui expliuant ue sa mère est mort. Truth is shapeless Like water it can be different things to different people it can bring life if you drink it or death if you drown One truth will tell how a tea house girl took an American sailor into her bed There s a truth in which an orphan child was sold by one man to another There s a truth in which a girl saw a golden man walking up a hill towards her and loved him for the whole of her life Chapter 55 Butterfly s Shadow is a hauntingly heartbreakingly beautiful novel that imagines the aftermath of Puccini s Madama Butterfly Langley s prose flows effortlessly and captures a mood of listless hope Each character is well developed with clear reasonings and motivations that are skilfully revealed via the shifting focalisation The theme of identity threads throughout the narrative as the cast struggle with conflicting realities of who they are The story provides a satisfying contrast to Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden and artfully explores the uestion of what happened next

    I do recommend this book and I am very glad I read it but perfect it isn’t Let me explain This is a book of historical fiction Isn’t the main goal of this genre to teach about a passed time in history?

    Interesting rather addictive and rather sad tale of the first twenty odd years of a man's life covering the between war years and world war two Taking Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly as a starting point so I read I don't know much about opera this builds it into a much greater story and focuses on the life of the son and how mixed up he becomes about who he is and where he belongsCho cho butterfly is fifteen
