This is a very pleasant book. It portrays the simplicity of life and the Shinto beliefs, in some ways, of the Japanese. The story is about a woman, Tsukiko, and a man, Sensei. Nothing is clichéd, everything is clean and clear prose; the book moves onward as you read, easily and wonderfully. Perhaps it is a love story, or maybe is it just a friendship where two people deeply care and depend on one another. Short but in no way unnoticeable, the novel drifts through the life of Tsukiko. She is hardheaded, determined, scared, and perfectly human. Although nothing exciting happens, the story line is never boring: the characters always bring out the best and the emotion that radiates from these characters is enough to fill anyone with sympathy and love. A wonderful book that shows that even "nothing" can be as much a part of life as "something".
