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

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
