Anybody here read Japanese books (in Japanese)?. What's the latest book you've read?.
I've always been a reader but there're many famouse Japanese novels I haven't read yet. I finally read 青春の門 (gate to youth) by Itsuki Hiroyuki and Ioved it. I also read an award winning modern novel 蛇にピアス by kanehara Hitomi. SHe wrote and won an award when she was only 19. It was a very interesting novel. Very different.
Also loved あかね空 by Yamamoto Ichiriki (won a Naoki award). I learned a lot about the every day lives of ordinary citizens during the Edo period. Highly recommended.
What's your favorite Japanese novel?
