WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Another find on the Chapter bookshelf.
An interesting area of history about which I knew very little. A little disappointed that the game of 'Go' didn't feature more strongly! However, a good read,I liked the short chapters in alternating voices which added interest and pace.
I won this book in a game at the BC UnCon

Picked up from the book buffet at the Oxford Convention, I will journal again when I have read it.
It wasn't quite as I expected after reading the blurb on the back cover. The 2 main characters lives are completely separate except for the odd occasions when they meet for the game of Go. An interesting look at the period of history of the Japanese occupation - if rather gory.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Taking this to the Greek bookcrossing convention. I hope you enjoy both the convention and this book.
Picked from the book buffet at the Convention in Athens.
I liked the novel. I was a bit confused in the beginning and could have done with a who's who and when and where; it got better when I got into the rhythm of the story. Besides, it brought back distant memories of this forgotten war. Nobody speaks of Manchuria any more. The novel has a very oriental "sound" (for want of a better word).
