This is my first post for this challenge. so am finally up & running.
Although told by an American, this epic book on Siberia covers history, literature, politics, science, and human relationships. Frazier was completely taken by this part of the world and visited several times, taking the trouble to learn the language to better his experiences there.
Dorte = I created a link from my blog to your blog. I don't know what steps I need to take to get the review from my blog to your blog.I clicked on my name under the Asian continent and much to my surprise discovered that a guest post for my 1/13 edition of my blog is now on your's. I have no idea how it happened or how to fix it.Beth
Beth: was it "The Hunter" you wanted to link to? When you need to link to an individual post, you click on the headline of that post. When you have done that, you have the full http-link (murder by type + the hunder ... etc) you need to copy and carry with you to this blog and put into the URL field. Just try again, and I´ll remove the wrong link.
THE HUNTER is a very good stand-alone but it would be wonderful first book in a series. The relationship between the two detectives develops as each copes with Japanese cultures views on what should remain part of a man's world.Beth
Finished my second book for this challenge this morning! Kafka on the Shore is one of my new favourite books =)
I also just finished Kafka on the Shore and it`s my second book for the challenge as well.Great minds think alike Reno!
I hope others take the time to read James Church's Inspector O series. It is wonderful.
Another one done.
I've now completed the Asian "leg" of my challenge with 3 books read
AUTOFICTION, immaculately written, a radical depiction of our times.
Picking Bone from Ash was a Book Club book, and there is a link to the discussion at the end of my review.
Ignore 37 I faux pas;d that up.
Well, that completes Asia for me! Just one more to go and I'll have completed the full challenge!~Kellyhttp://ksrgmck.blogspot.com/
another Asian one for me, need to spread my wings.
I read Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda and it was REALLY amazing. It takes place in India, and I highly recommend it if you haven't done this one yet!
My book- THE GROANING SHELF and other instances of book love is by Pradeep Sebastian, someone whose work I've read for the first time, even though he is from my country, India. Is that alright?I recommend this one to all compulsive readers- describes the inner world of a reader and book collector wonderfully.
Sorry, I am having a difficult time getting the title in Mr. LinkyIf you click on the last MADELEINE you will be taken to :THE GOOD DAUGHTER by Jasmin Darznick ~ IRAN~
my first graphic novel, yeah!
a brilliant genre busting thriller from Japan this time.
The Secret History Of The Lord Of Musashi & Arrowroot - Jun'ichiro Tanizaki is the full title.
I haven't intentionally been seeking out Japanese authors for this challenge, but it just so happens that this year I've discovered two new favourite authors who happen to be Japanese - Haruki Murakami and Nagaru Tanigawa :)
I am now done Asia, with Under an Afghan Sky.
Two reviews: The Oracle of Stamboul and Seven Years in Tibet. Playing mad catch up here!
Japan, Israel, and India -- very different places from the same continent.
