    Sound of the Mountain

    In the story, The Sound of the Mountain by Yasunari Kawabata, Shingo tries to understand his family¿s problems and his increased awareness of his old age. This story is of a family who suffers just like any other family. They deal with affair, divorce, and death. The story revolves around Shingo. He helps the family get through the issues, which face them. I would recommend this book to others. The story is fiction but easily relatable to. I found the book to be engaging and appealing. The characters draw one in with their blunt reality. Shingo shows that even when age becomes a large number, one is still capable of so much. He displays this through his decisions he makes in the story. Although there were parts I was unclear about I found the book to be captivating. In close, this book is worth reading, if one desires to learn about a family living in Japan, who face everyday struggles.
