Al work in Endo's oeuvre charts the conflicts between them which have explosive results This is the first paperback edition of one of Endo's greatest work. I m so glad I gave Endo a second chance after being terribly disappointed by Silence This is a much satisfactory novel The main characters are Suda a meteorologist and seismologist and Durand a catholic priest who s been expelled from the Church Both men are reaching the end of life and end up meeting in hospital after Suda has his first stroke Suda devoted the last 15 years of his career to a close study of volcano Akadak a short boat ride away from town Suda prides himself on knowing this volcano better than anybody else even though in fact he has just espoused unconditionally his mentor s view that Akadak is about to become extinct and can t have any major eruptions This theory is music to the ears of an ambitious businessman who needs Suda s word to convince investors to put money into a brand new Western style hotel complex on the slopes of the volcano The novel starts on the day of Suda s retirement when he reaches a deal with Aiba in exchange for Suda s scientific support of his real estate scheme Aiba will pay for the publication of Suda s detailed study of the volcano On the other hand Durand s successor Father Sato also has plans to his own to build a retreat centre for his parishioners on the volcanic island so that all the characters have a stake in what happens with Akadak When Suda starts having doubts about potential eruptions it is too late and he dies without being able to express his misgivings His last weeks are embittered by the realization that his relatives are impatient for him to die and that his long obsession with Akadak may not have made him the peerless specialist he thought he was In fact it becomes clear that his involvement with Aiba s scheme clouded his judgement For his part Durand actively wishes the volcano to erupt because having made a mess of his life he can t stand the sight of people having a good time His favorite pastime is to go and hang around Father Sato s church to needle the poor well meaning priest and frighten his former parishioners For a bit of sick fun he gives alms obtained from Father Sato to a young convert in the hope the young man will do something sinful with it At the end of the novel with both construction projects well under way the reader cannot but share the characters s anxiety about what the volcano will do This is a measure of Endo s achievement with this simple but very effective story about men faith and bad faith Full Dark, No Stars in Endo's oeuvre charts the conflicts between them which have explosive results This If Only Once (The Martelli Brothers, is the first paperback edition of one of Endo's greatest work.

An With two masterly portraits of two men who have lived their lives both physically and metaphorically under the shadow of the Akadeke volcano this cruci. I loved Volcano and finished it in just a few days End uses beautiful language to tell a story and delve into 2 men s reflective gaze into their lives Central to the story are the issues of compassionate love or better the lack of it aging death and self worth I found the two main characters fascinating and well brought to life In the character of Jimpei Suda End perfectly captures the fears and dread of a person s whose life s work is on the line and who when looking back on his life sees it was mostly devoid of meaningful relationships In Durand a man who also sees his life s work as a failure and a desire to watch it all burn to the ground The exploration of the inner worlds of these men was the novels greatest element I also enjoyed the use of the volcano itself as both a metaphor for aging and a plot device ever working building up towards an explosive ending Having lived in Japan and visited Kagoshima the city on which the setting borrows from I greatly enjoyed this window into the Japanese experience Another great work by End Off-side it Esclava Medieval: La Sumisión retorcida en Placer por un Matrimonio de Conveniencia (Novela Romántica y Erótica en Español: Fantasía nº 1) (Spanish Edition) in just a few days End uses beautiful language to tell a story and delve Enséñame más into 2 men s reflective gaze Wonder (The Books of Marvella, into their lives Central to the story are the Chicago Billionaires - Contemporary Romance Series Boxed Set issues of compassionate love or better the lack of The Valhalla Prophecy (Nina Wilde & Eddie Chase it aging death and self worth I found the two main characters fascinating and well brought to life In the character of Jimpei Suda End perfectly captures the fears and dread of a person s whose life s work The Tunnel is on the line and who when looking back on his life sees Secretos del Cosmos it was mostly devoid of meaningful relationships In Durand a man who also sees his life s work as a failure and a desire to watch The Secret Treasons it all burn to the ground The exploration of the مريض الوهم inner worlds of these men was the novels greatest element I also enjoyed the use of the volcano The Hypochondriacs Guide To Life And Death itself as both a metaphor for aging and a plot device ever working building up towards an explosive ending Having lived ¡Arde Troya!

From the author of Silence this powerful novel of ideas is also a sensitive and moving depiction of the trials of old age set in the central region of Jap. This was a melancholic book which I had some trouble connecting with despite its interesting depictions of Japanese culture What I did enjoy was the symbolism of the volcano linking it to human life The two protagnonists Jinpei and Father Durand were both pretty pathetic characters Jinpei was uite horrible to his wife and sons and was obsessed with the volcano Father Durand was relatively tyrannical too and spent most of the novel trying to prove that Japanese culture and Christianity were incompatible Not the best Japanese novel I ve ever read but it wasn t too bad

    Shusako Endo was a Japanese Catholic at a time when Catholics represented less than 1% of Japan’s population and he had a very hard time reconciling Catholicism and the traditional Japanese culture and religion Because of this–and because Endo suffered from lung disease for much of his life–the themes of serious illness and the uestion of whether or not the Japanese can be true practitioners of Catholicism are recurring themes in End
