"A master storyteller.... Michener, by any standards, is a phenomenon." The Wall Street Journal

Description

From a great master of historical fiction comes a brilliant tale of love amid war. James A. Michener combines powerful storytelling with deep sensitivity in this novel of a US army man who, against all odds, falls for a fascinating Japanese woman. Stationed in the exotic Far East, Major Lloyd Gruver considers himself lucky. The son of a general, dating the daughter of another powerful military family, he can look forward to a bright future. And he just can't understand guys like Private Joe Kelly, who throw away their lives in the States by marrying local girls. But then Lloyd meets Hana-ogi. After that, nothing matters anymore...nothing but her.

Sayonara

Beautiful and touching. Oh how I hated to say Sayonara. That can't be the end. Broke my heart. I want more and more

Narrated?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It is a shame that such a good story was narrated so badly. It sounded as if the narration was just read by someone who stumbled and bumbled his way to the end.

Such a period piece

As we watch the 2016 US elections unfold along with a renewed unleashing of racism, bigotry and xenophobia , this book reminds me that the more things change the more they stay the same!
