Sinossi

In the turmoil of Japan, before the banishment of the samurai class, a disillusioned samurai, Itashima Chobei, is confronted by Akiyama, a samurai on a mysterious errand for his powerful leader. Their conflicted worlds lead to a battle of wits, ego and pursuit. In the middle is a beautiful woman, Miyo, attached to one, coveted by the other.

Cho, after having been forced by his clan to perform atrocities, works as a yojimbo and handyman for a second-tier inn along the Nakasendo Highway. Akiyama is a samurai from Mito province who is loyal to his clan. When Akiyama's Daimyo Lord is forced to stay at the inn, improvements must be made, and the Mito samurai demands that the inn make those changes according to the Mito Leader's requirements.

After a failed assassination attempt against the leader of Japan, Akiyama and Miyo disappear. Cho, believing that Miyo has chosen to live with a samurai of higher status, pursues them, determined that Miyo know the truth about the man with whom she's disappeared.

Cho and a young samurai companion, Kensei, travel the length and breadth of Japan’s highways for a year in search of the couple. They separate for personal reasons, but reunite at the inn another year later where Cho learns the truth of Miyo's departure and her life with Akiyama. Does he owe it to himself or to Japan to find Akiyama and punish him for what he's done?

5.0 su 5 stelle "-leave the business of Japan to the zealots" 23 dicembre 2016

I was very surprised by the quality of this novel, as it had no previous reviews. Mr. Davies has crafted a very descriptive tale of life in Japan during the social upheaval which included the Sakuradamon incident. This tale is solidly written, so I could not finish it in one sitting. I found his description of life and culture in mid 19th century Japan to be refreshing and instructive. The plot was not predictable, the storytelling was very patient, culminating in an ending which did not feel rushed in any sense. Being a fan of Katherine Lawrence, IJ Parker and Lynn Guest, I consider Inn of Fallen Leaves to be an extremely worthwhile read.
4.0 su 5 stelle Good historical novel of Japan 22 febbraio 2017
Di Thomas Capers Jones - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I enjoy Japanese history and have read quite a few books about Japan, both novels and historical books. This one is good but not great. The lead character is a samurai who works as a bodyguard (yojimbo) for a Japanese inn and drinking place. He gets involved with national issues during the time after Commodore Perry's visit when Japan was struggling to modernize and there were conflicts between the Shogun's party and the party that wanted to restore the Emperor to full power. The books is fairly interesting but the story is a bit on the slow side.
