    Nowadays though she might write to her brother Take care of yourself but not Please fight for the country with all your might She had learned how hard her young heart must have been to have written that message over and over without a twinge of pain A few GR people have this marked down as Young Adult for whatever reason It's about as Young Adult as Grave of the Fireflies is a children's movie in that both happen to children and young adu

    It's hard to read such a story But this was excellent in it's writing structure and deployment of the scenes and plot Somehow Shizuko Go gave expression to what barely can be imagined but wasis the truth for human beings affected by war We all know natural disaster or accidents make no sense but war the humans cause it knowingly and that makes the absurdity of the misery humans have to endure due to war even grippingMayb

    A powerful and moving novel that deals with war patriotism and pacifism As relevant today as it was when it was first published

    This book was incredible it pulls at the strings of the heart and is truly soul wrenching It's amazingly beautiful and despairingly ugly at the same time All I wish is that I would've found this book soonerThe book is about Setsuko a sixteen year old dying in an air raid shelter as she goes back through her memories and lift of growing up in WWII japan as a patriotic Japanese girl and her friendship with Naomi the daughter of a man impriso

    I like the way the horrors of the American bombing spree are shown in the novel I also like how it gives space to Japanese voices who opposed the war and for this very reason were repressed by the imperial state The book offers an excellent account on how the Japanese ideological apparatus worked to impart chauvinist patriotism and fascist ethos among its population to support imperialist adventures abroad

    Good book that demonstrates the nationalism taught and ingrained into young Japanese school children Provides a narrative of a character against the war as well Insightful into the often forgot fire bombings of Japan during WWII by America that were devastating killing thousands Great commentary on war and it's uestions

review れくいえむ

R the hour of their death was near as they well knew Everyone close to Setsuko is dead as a result of the war yet she believes in the war unuestioningly and writes letters to soldiers on the front urging them to fight to the finish Naomi's father is imprisoned because of his anti war beliefs and she struggles to find justification for war Over the course of the novel through flashbacks that occur within sentences or paragraphs A powerful and moving novel that deals with war patriotism and pacifism As relevant today as it was when it was first published
