A review by fortiora
The Sailor Who Fell from Grace With the Sea by Yukio Mishima

dark mysterious reflective tense slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


I liked this book a lot, but I found that its kinda hard for me to put into words the reason(s) why. 
I really like Mishima's writing and I am very excited to read more from him. The book is written in a very realistic way. What I mean with this is that though things happen that are quite 'out there', it still felt like I could perfectly imagine it happening. 
Overall I liked it a lot, but damn that poor poor kitty :(
