This series is full of tough spots for the characters. Better than that, it's full of characters that leave an impression and seem to escape being as i have come to expect. Particularly in this book, there are periods of exploration of themselves (in which even they themselves are surprised), and growth - including personality traits that are not what i expected. The characters seem to be plucked from history -- Takeo and Kaede and Arai and all the others seem very real. I cannot /wait/ to begin reading book number 3! this one went by faster than any book i've ever read.

Captures the culture well. Alot is understood without being spoken.

The tone of the book is enough to keep the readers of the edge of their seats wondering what will happen!

This book was so good because of its balance between war, love and culture. it is a fantastic read.

Great book! Very emotional, but, even though it is a great book, i still prefer 'Across the nightinggale floor' (even though it had the most annoying ending!!!) Has nothing to do with Grass or Pillow's though, it tells us about Takeo and Keade's relationship away from each other (tee-hee) and how they cope. Mainly its on Keade seeking power and all that stuff on how she should have been born a boy, and Takeo coping life with the 'Tribe.' Read this on a Plane! Really good for reading on planes, especailly when you've already seen the movie's thier showing! Two annoying things though: The names, I CAN NOT PRONOUNCE HALF THE NAMES. Well, I can't, but maybe you can, i'm only 13. Oh, and the fact that the word 'TEA' is used so often. It's amusing at first, but then is very irritating coz no one wants to read about tea. Wonderful book, i've read all of them a million times. Ok, maybe not a million. I hope Lian Hearn is writing more, and i heard there's a movie in the making for 'Across the Nightinggale floor.' !Enjoy the book!

Lian Hearn is an amazing auther. Her characters are so deep and believable that you are transported right to medival Japan. Takeo is such a strong person, along with his adopted clans and love. I deffinately recommend this book to everyone!

I loved this book it was so deep and yet so well written. I loved the way honour over came his rightful path. I love Takeo he is such a atrong character full of knowledge, he creates a great image of the young men of that time. I also like the women power tha Kaede shows, she is a such a great character. Im most pleased with the way it ended lookin forward to the 3 installment of The Otori Series. A very well written book, possibly my fave book...apart from the Fisrt Of the Otorti Series.

2nd in series, the continuing tale of the youthful lovers kept apart by politics and honor in Lian Hearn's alternative feudal Japan. The narration is compelling and kept me reading despite how depressed and without expectation of satisfying futures both characters (and landscape) seemed to be in the first part of the story. The rich descriptions of place, well-rounded secondary characters, the determination of Kaede and the evolving magical skills and resolving identity issues of Takeo were counters to the initial mood and in the end I found it a very satisfying listen and I can't wait to start #3. 4.5 stars - couldn't figure out how to get 1/2 star
