    Read this several months ago and forgot to add it to my list, apparently. Mori's historical fiction style that reads quite like "based on a true story" is very new to me and can be quite interesting at times, but I wouldn't say I was completely charmed by it. The storytelling would get very caught up in the minute details of things, and although I have a lot of respect to Mori for carefully doing research to include all those details, it really took away focus from the actual story.

Mori's historical fiction style that reads quite like "based on a true story" is very new to me and can be quite interesting at times, but I wouldn't say I was completely charmed by it. The storytelling would get very caught up in the minute details of things, and although I have a lot of respect to Mori for carefully doing research to include all those details, it really took away focus from the actual story. Or maybe I just wasn't smart enough to understand the purpose of them or able to focus long enough to glean anything from them. The introduction was great to understand Mori's impressive life as both a respected academic and a military doctor, historical Japan, and the strong influence this context had on his stories. To end this on a good note, some of his stories, for example, the one where a girl and boy are forcefully separated from their mother, were particularly well-written and memorable. I'd say for those gems here and there, it was worth reading.
